Noise Problem(Yes I saw the sticky)
Ok. Before I start let me restate: I DID READ THE STICKY ON NOISE
Now that thats overwith. Here's my problem:
I've wired my Amp into my stock radio's audio connection. 1 common signal ground and 4 L/R+ channels. I have done this with some hacked RCA cables. Anywho. When I turn the key to ACC the amp starts(Yay). Well, if i have the radio default off when I turn to ACC there is no Noise. If I touch the radio(Ie, press the ON button) that radio does not power on(I think this is normal) but the noise starts. When I turn the radio on(Ie, actually on unlike b4) the noise goes away even if i set the volume down to 0. If i turn the radio off I get the noise again. If I start the car with radio default on there is no noise until i turn the radio off. Oh yea. When I turn on the radio I get a sorta feedback(Sounds like a DJ spinning a record). Anyway. I'm pretty sure it's the radio's failure to send the outputs to ground and instead allows them to float(cause when I turn off the radio I can "hear" the sound of the antena retracting). Now, here's the kicker. When I plug in my IPOD to my custom RCA's(which are connected to the AMP not the radio) there is no noise weather the IPOD is on or off. and With the RCA's disconnected the amp doesn't not selfgenerate the noise.
Thanks in Advance,
P.S. Yes, I do type alot
