  • Grounding

    I've had my install done for about 6 months, and just recently I made the no-headunit jump. I've got my computer (onboard sound) connected directly to my two amps. While my noise isn't bad by any means, it is still present. So basically, I want to know what the common things to ground are, and the correct technique of grounding them. My noise does get horrible after I shut down the computer, while the inverter is still running... Does this lead anyone to a diagnosis?

    Motherboard - I assume I just make a small cable with circle terminals, attach to the brass board standoffs and ground to the same location as inverter?

    Power Supply - Attach a wire to the case itself? Or cut two of the black leads and ground them?

    Hard Drive - Attach wire to screw mount?

    Anything I am missing?

    DC to DC power supply. I suspect you noise issue is the inverter, not the grounding of your hardware.

      Just for ****s and giggles try grounding all of what you said, the most that can happen is more noise. If no-go, do what Trukin said, DC-DC helps alot.
