    Noise Question

    I have a Kenwood Excelon KAC-X812D mono amp from several years ago. For the past 6 years, it was in an Isuzu Rodeo and I had quite a bit of static, especially when the ignition was off or the car was just started. I figured I must be getting some electromagnetic interference in the lines.

    I just swapped it over to my new 2013 WRX. I used new Rockford Fosgate wiring all around and ran the power cable and patch cable in different locations. But, I am still getting the same static noise. I can turn the low pass filter down to 80 Hz, and that helps some, but its still there.

    Do you guys think this is a wiring issue or should I swap the amp? It is pretty annoying if you are listening at low volume with the ignition off.

    Maybe this isn't the place to ask this, but what do you guys think this amp is worth?
