    Like pirate_king00 was saying, ground your case to your designated centralized grounding point (i.e. run a wire from one of your screws in the casing, to your ground point). If it gets messy just use a power distribution block for all your grounds.

    'ey PirateKing & lojikop... .thanks for the info. I presently have all my components using just one ground point (ground power block, which is connected back to the battery ground through firewall). I have only one ground point -- so it *shouldn't* be a ground loop matter. But one thing I didn't do is ground to the case of my opus but rather the ground wire from inside the opus. Perhaps I should switch.

    I also have my carpc on the drivers-side rear seat and all power, rca's, monitor cables, etc.. all run down the drivers side -- so this might be my problem.

    Will have to give it a lil more thought... thanks for the suggestions.

    Wierd? I posted a respone to both slangnasty and the post before but dont see the post, looks like this thread is missing a couple. Maybe maintenance, however my response was the following.

    Slangnasty> Ground your opus case, I am sure this will take care of you noise.

    Also the other person above slangnastys post, do the same with your inverter, groung the case to your ground. You should use minimal grounding points. I have one that dodge uses up front and I made another on drivers side where I have the majority of my hardware.
    Another thing you will want to do is route your wires far apart from oneanother....

    In my case power cables go along Driver door, RCA cables go along passenger side and my speaker wires go up the middle. THe inverter that I am using is a Monster (bestbuy for about 100bucks). Let me know if either of you 2 need any help.

    Disregard my last post, somehow my view on the thread was changed...Slang on your opus that is fine to have the ground going inside the case, but do yourself a favor and add another ground to the opus case. That is what I did to my Monster inverter, took the noise 100% away without using ground loop isolators. I would do that first before messing with the other wire, its a pain to remove the front seat (2 man job on 03).

    @PirateKing: sounds good. I will be doing some serious work on my CarPC coming up here real soon (got the motorized indash lilli from Armen) and that will be a good time to perform this ground.

    thanks for the info.
