Possible solution for people with screen interference (Pics)
After having probs with my xenarc/gain and getting ignition noise on it i decided to try and figure out what it was. Well i am using a DC-DC convertor which is supposed to ensure a regulated 12v feed. Well , it may be regulated but certainly not clean. Many people said they used their opuses for the feed and all is well. I tried this and it seemed to sort the noise (hortixoltal lines on it) and also the fadeing when i started the car. Well through my days of car audio i had accumilated a 'Shark Noise Power Filter' which actually cleans the power going to the 12v line. I bought this from maplin.co.uk once in a vain attempt to fix some alternator whine which in the end was some annoying ground loop. SO i thought id give it a try. My results were suprising. All of the visual noise lines etc had gone. Didnt seem to fix the dimming when i started which is surprising as the opus as a circuit designed to store current when the car is started so voltage doesnt drop but all the noise has gone.
Heres a pic of it: -
And here is a pic of its guts: -
Anyone know whats in it and why it seems to work so well?
Ill keep using it and let you know how it goes but early impressions are very good.
