    Talking inverter buzzing

    I just bought a cd player for my truck and now my computer audio is hooked into an front aux jack, the only problem is the inverter buzzing is a lot louder than it was when I had a tape deck. How can I fix this?
    ground loop isolator? If so what do those do?

    Cool

    A ground loop isolator doesn't fix the problem, but at least eliminates the symptoms. I assume you have tried grounding the inverter and power supply case?
