    Infill T3 static noise (Fixed, Problem solved)

    I just installed Infill T3 with StreetDeck. I notice a static in the background constantly, regardless of what's playing from the computer or StreetDeck. The music and radio sounds good from StreetDeck. However, the static seems to be independent of StreetDeck, because I hear it whenever the T3 is turned on. I didn't find anybody mentioning it, so I don't know if it's T3 sending out the static, or something wrong with my wiring. There are no loose wires and I attached all ground wires to the chassis.

    Your probably hooking it up to speakers that don't support speaker level outputs. This is usually the case with premium stock sound systems like those from BOSE. You possibly will need something like this for your car to fix the voltage. http://www.crutchfield.com/S-h2VqjWp...51&I=142C4NN03 Of course there are also several other things that could also cause static, like ground loops.

    I have factory speakers without premium sound. However, the sound with StreetDeck Radio, Music and TV sounds perfect. Actually the Infill T3 with SD sounds far better than my factory radio previously. Only when there is silence, the static is apparent. I'm going to first try unhooking the harness and redo the wiring.

    I also am having problems with getting sound from my T3. The install instruction specify not to use the speaker wires if I have an amp, although I can't run the composite cables into the factory amp. But, If I hook up the speaker wires to the harness, I get no sound and if I connect the Amp Power wire to the harness all I get is static. Am I doing something incorrectly, or would I benefit from picking up one of those Nissan/Infinity adapters?

    Is there a downside to using one of those adapters over replacing the Amp?

    Thanks

    I have completely redone the speaker portion of the wiring with a brand new Scosche wiring harness custom fit for my car, but static persists.

    What are other possible causes of the static? I've tried unhooking the powered TV antennae and the radio antennae, but the static is the same. When I play music, radio or TV, the sound can't be more crystal clear. There is no distortion from the speakers. Only, when there's a silence, the static becomes noticeable. I've also tried grounding the top and bottom unit directly to the chassis of the car using an 18gauge wire, but to no avail.

    Did you ever figure this out? I am having the same problem. I am guessing I need to shield the speaker wires in case they are picking up interference for the power lines.
