  • Ground Loop Isolator Problems

    Problem:
    When I plug in my ground loop isolator inline between my rca's from my soundcard and my electronic crossover on my car audio my inverter freaks out.

    As soon as I try and turn the inverter on it immediately shuts back down and an indicator light comes on that means Power Overload / Low Battery which I know is not the case because the system works fine without the ground loop isolator.

    If anyone else has had this problem please help!

    Montego II Sound Card
    MTX 2 Way Electronic Crossover
    400 W Inverter / 800 W Max

    Earth your case. That should fix it. ie join a wire (reasonable gauge) from the computer ground to the car ground.

    Hope this helps

      Thanks BJ. I attached an 8 gauge ground from my pc to a common ground in my truck and all my noise is gone and I didn't even have to use the ground loop isolator.

      Thanks!
