    this fourm is really helpful, a lot of people coming to me with suggestions and it is helping me a whole lot to basically try and tone the buzzing down. It seems with every step i do, that i can actually get rid of it more and more, i dont think ill ever get rid of it , but i guess if i tone it down to a bare min then it wouldnt bother me no more. Thanks everyone
    Just the ground. No left or right audio wire, just the audio ground wire.

    ok, audio usually has 3-4 wires. A left signal, left ground, right signal, and a right ground. Sometimes the grounds are combined into one. The grounds are what you need to ground to your car.

    Edit: The shield on your USB is just that, the shield. It's the metal part around the port.

    um...dont ground the audio to the car. they are completely seperate circuits. just dont do it, thats not your problem. it might be the audio cables though. just dont splice into them. unless somehow its a shielded audio cable and you want to groud that for whatever reason
    rebuilding carpc... kinda..

    I have never heard of grounding audio like that. I agree with Fant - don't do it. Sounds like a headache, a waste of audio cables, and I don't believe it will change anything.

    Has anyone else actually grounded audio like this?

    I Don't care what you guys say, this is where almost all of my noise was coming from. I grounded my audio ground, and voila, all my noise... gone.

    Read this thread:
    Engine whine
    scroll down to post #11

    And, if you don't know what the hell you're talking about, or haven't actually tried it yourself, then shut up. What if this is the solution? You guys and your "well uhh... I don't think it's a good idea, but I've never actually done it" will discourage so many people, when this has worked fine for me for years...

    C'mon now man, leave it to the guys that know this stuff... not the newbs...

    It's one thing to have an opinion, but it's totally something different to have an unresearched answer. Voice your opinion man, that's what forums are for. But don't slam my answers when I KNOW it works. It just doesn't work in all cases.

    anywayz, i tried grounding the audio wires, and they help , but that not much. What i also noticed, that when my audio wires were grounded and the computer is off, not pluged in or nothing, and stock hu is still on , i get the buzzing sound, but once i unground them, it goes away. Does that mean anything or jsut that the ground loop is created when the power is not on or something , dont no but im sure thats not my problem.

    About my inverter, i have one of those inverter adapters with the rectangle palstic box in the middle of the wire. Attempting to ground this piece, but how do i get about that? should i take apart the plastic box and find something metal to ground it to inside. Didnt wanna take apart the plastic piece at first but im willing to do it now.

    thanks again
