Beginner Forum Rules - EVERYBODY read! (old and new members alike!)

Beginners start here. Once you have 30 worthwhile posts (off topic doesn't count) you may post outside of the Beginner forums. Any "whoring" (posting simply to raise your post count) will return your count to 0, or result in a ban.

These are the rules. Read them. Live by them.

1) Absolutely NO flaming! "Flaming" is an outright attack on a member. ALL questions are encouraged to be asked here, no matter how basic. Members with over 30 posts will be subject to a ONE WEEK ban if caught flaming in this forum (and yes, moderators can read deleted posts). Members with under 30 posts will be subject to a ONE DAY ban.

2) Use appropriate language. Racial or sexual slurs will not be tolerated. A ban will be issued at the discretion of the staff.

3) No items may be sold in the Beginner forums. Any "for sale" threads will be deleted.

4) Temporarily banned members will be PERMANTLY banned if they are found posting on another account.

The rules can and will be added to. Any updates will be marked in the title.

    Whine after amp install

    As the title states, I installed component speakers, then decided I wanted more power, so I installed a boss r2504, after I installed this there is a faint whine in the tweeters, if there's more current pulled, ie headlights on, the whine increases in volume, I ran my rca's next to all my power lines, could this be the cause? I'm going to unplug the rca's and see if the whine persists, If not I am going to probably get shielded rca's or run them on the opposite side, does this sound correct?

    Yes. Or bad grounds. More likely power wires to close to speaker wires.


      Thank you for the input, I'm gonna try and do some troubleshooting and see how it goes


        In every (and I mean every) vehicle I have owned with aftermarket audio I have this issue. It always a loose connection. It you are using any RCA style connectors, double check to make sure they are fully connected. I've had to tape the connections together before.
        Does anyone else have a monthly budget of 10mm sockets or is it just me?


          I've noticed with headlights on or ac it does it, more pronounced higher rpms, but it occasionally won't do it, so I'm thinking ground or cable loose. Just need an hour of free time to look.


            If the rcas or remote wire are ran on the same side as the power wire you will get whine. Run the power wire on 1 side of the car by itself, and the rca and remote wire on the other side of the car.
