I'm not sure what's wrong with my rear Speaker right input preamp on my pioneer deck. Whenenver I plug any RCA cable it starts making loud unwanted noise. I have 2 sets of preamps on my HU . I'm using my front to power a 4 channel amp ( I'm only powering my front components) . Okay here is the deal. I have a Mono Viper 1200.1 amp. SInce my rear right speaker preamp isnt working right Can I use just the left rear speaker input to power my mono amp. I have two subs connected to it at 1ohm. One last question what can be wrong wth my right front preamp that makes so my noise whenever i turned it up. My gain is set correctly so i know that's not the problem, and I try using different RCA cables so thats not it either. Both of my amps are well grounded . please help

Wrap a bare wire around the RCA and groung it to the HU or the grounding point of the HU

sounds like the infamous pioneer ground problem to me. take your deck back if it is under warrenty.

oh, and if something is faulty in your install, such as a component or some of the handy work, that can also cause it. basically if the amp is bad, it can send 12v back through the rca's to the pre-outs and smoke your deck.
