Zwinggggggggg

That's the sound my tweeters make when I start the truck. I just got a buttload of 4ga and an inline fuse to do "The Big Three". Will this solve the problem? My dad told me it might be in the alternator or ignition, which are both being replaced in the next six months. I've heard you can buy a ground loop isolator to fix the problem as well. Until I get the time and money for the alternator and ignition module, what can I do in the mean time to stop that damn sound??? I have good grounds on both of my amps. I can hear every little thing through the tweeters when the volume is completely down. From turn signals to brake lights to the damn blower motor. WTF??? It's really starting to **** me off after I spent a couple days gutting my interior to run all this ****. grrrrrrr

My subwoofer has a similar effect of this problem. It just kinda buzzes very softly, you'd have to listen carefully to notice though.

I know on my dads 05 f-250, he has a JL 10w-7 you can hear some humming with the sub when there is 0 vol. also, as with the center channel. But not as loud as you are explaining. We are "unsure" what is causing it, but its VERY MINUMUL, easy to live with..

It might be your H/U? idk (if u havent already) check the speaker/tweeter connections..

I've got my 4ga and remote wire running up the drivers side and two sets of rca's on the passenger side. The sound does not come through the front speakers(still stock) and never came through the old stock rears. I've tryed different grounds. Ugh, I'm at a loss on this one.

Are your rears amplified at all, i mean other than what your H/U does? If so you may be suffereing from some RCA interferance. Check that. Also you can buy a thing(cant remember what its called) that eliminates interferance from your vehicles electronics.

a ground loop isolator?

I have two amps in the rear. One for the sub and one for the rear components. I have a set of boston acoustic tweets, mid-ranges, and crossovers power by a kicker amp. Both have separate rca's running to them.

Your RCA's are touching are they? And i believe that it is called a ground loop isolater, yes. Make sure that your RCA's are isolated from each other. Also make sure that your amps arn't grounded together but rather on seperate grounds. Some times that can f things up.

Yeah I need to separate the grounds. The rca's are running side by side, but I don't think it makes a difference. Hell I've seen rca's with the remote wire built in. If that doesn't affect things, I doubt two pair of rca's in the same area would make a difference. They're sending the same signals.
