  1. i have a strong feeling is something to do with after the amp because when i unplug the RCAs the noise gets louder ... do i put all my grounds in one spot or in different spots ?

  3. all grounds are solid bare metal ... the signs are saying bad amp but its a new amp only 2 months old.... does rockford fosgate repair amps ?
  4. ground look isolator is at the amp and i am running Rockford fosgate single twist RCA's... im going to try and wrap all power wires in electrical tape and then the 3 rca's to maybe help reduce signal noise kind of running out of ideas EDIT: ok when i unplugged the RCA's from the front channel the noise in the front is very loud with engine off only in accessory mode. the ground loop isolator i have is a fierce ground loop isolator and there are 2 brown wires coming from the box ... i have yet to figure out what they are for.
  5. well i put ears to the speakers and i have FAINT noise coming from the 6x9s and mids. when i unplug one side of the rca cables the noise gets MUCH louder and then when i unplug both it goes away ... the HU RCA's are already externally grounded i did that already to cancel that problem. like this . http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/4/606527.jpg&imgrefurl=http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/4/606514.html&usg=__PcwOq42iie2W2j43cC1IbTw1RXs=&h=400&w=400&sz=43&hl=en&start=0&sig2=NVJKYEbuH16bllx_7FltJg&zoom=1&tbnid=SIiQfElLSV3Z4M:&tbnh=136&tbnw=140&ei=BpiKTMqdKaKanAfP0piXCQ&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dpioneer%2Brca%2Bground%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Doff%26biw%3D1144%26bih%3D665%26tbs%3Disch:1&um=1&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=126&vpy=63&dur=128&hovh=225&hovw=225&tx=146&ty=147&oei=BpiKTMqdKaKanAfP0piXCQ&esq=1&page=1&ndsp=22&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0 i notice that when i move the RCA away from my power wire by the amp and it got more faint. is there away to filter the RCA and power wires to reduce the noise coming from the power wires ?
  6. Amp is Rockford Fosgate P-400.4 i hope its not the amp i paid alot for her. and the tweeters are the tweeters on my Orion 6.5 components
  7. ok i am getting alternator noise from my tweeters and its driving me crazy !!! i have power wire and RCA separated as best as i can. Running all 4gauge wire from battery to amps and grounds. HU is a pioneer and i did that external RCA ground thing because i guess pioneer is common for bad RCA grounds. running 10gauge ground from HU to bare metal. all grounds are reading .3 OHM i have ground loop isolators on RCA's all grounds are in different locations ( i have been reading and 50% say ground all in one spot 50% say ground all in different spot.) i am thinking maybe the power wires and RCA's are still to close to each other and i was thinking if i wrapped both up separately in electrical tape would it help filter ??? any ideas would be AMAZING !!!!!! ALSO speaker wire is ran away from power wires as best as possible. EDIT: and all grounds have been shaved to BARE metal and are secured very god with ring terminals.
  8. i am going to be putting a 10 inch subwoofer in my friends car and i want to make the subwoofer fin inside the cavity of the spare tire. i dont really know how to build a round enclosure and i was wondering if there are any tips on how to do it.
  9. what time do you guys think you will be there ? i live right by OCB and would love to see some nice builds and show mine
  10. does anyone have a MECP certificate or taken the test and what are some things to expect from it, is it hard ?
  11. playing thunderstruck on the sound system volume is loud sorry for that hopefully will be posting a full build thread of my project on my 1992 mercury capri XR2 but for now this will do as a teaser.
