Frustrating alt whine won't go away...

Recommended Posts

check out this vid on youtube for this problem

I already have copper wire wrapped around my RCAs outputs and grounded it from my prvious amp...its still there now, and it does not seem to be helping...

Did you used a multimeter on the ground points yet for the amp?

to see if the ground is in the 20's or below that

No. For continuity?

nope on impedence on the multimeter negative test lead to the negative post on the battery then a long jumper test lead from the positive on the multimeter to the grounding point where the amp is grounding at for this test

Possible pinched wires maybe? That has happened to me before on pinched wires under a seat and once i moved it went away. could also be pinched rca somewhere.

Ok, I'll check the grounds for impedence...since I have rear batt, should I also front battery neg to rear battery neg?

I don't think this is it, I just re-ran new RCAs and the path is pretty a clean shot to the amp aside from the few extra inches at the end.
