Trying to solve alternator whine problem
Hi all, well I have installed my xbox as follows:
(8 gauge wire)
Battery------Relay-------Inverter under front seat-------XBOX in the boot
Xenarc screen (powered from the 8gauge wire after relay)
Now I originally had video interference (horizontal scrolling line) but I solved this by grounding the outer RCA video shield to the car chasis
However now I have alternator whine on acceleration
Now I tried grounding the audio cables to the car as I did with the video but no success there.
Next, I disconnected the XBOX and connected my ipod with everything else in the same place and powered on. There was NO alternator whine
So, should I go for a ground loop isolator? It seems like the noise is being transmitted through the xbox from the inverter. Perhaps if I try grounging the XBOX too?
The thing is, ground loop isolators are expensive over here:
Any help would be greatly appreciated
