ok, heres the deal, i had a clarion dxz-635 that worked beautifuly, perfect sq. now i install my new pioneer 690ub and i get a static noise as soon as the volume is turned above zero, alone with a bit of alternator whine, so i wrapped wire around the grounds as per the thread on here. hooked it back up, alternator whine is gone, but there is still static. it is very noticable at high volumes with quite parts in songs. is there any way to remedy this? also is there a way to turn off the beep everytime you do something? thanks' oh yea, and gains are set so that max volume is 40 on the hu

the rca's ran opposite the power? That may help. Some say it has no effect, some say it does.

yes they are, and like i said, this was not present with last deck, and is with this one, and no wires were move, so it couldnt be that

thats what the pio's are known for. Perhaps and even better ground. Not questioning the first job you did, just throwing it out there.

RE-ground the headunit.

RE-ground the headunit.

reground the headunit how? the ground from the plug in the head unit connects to the ground on the harness, should it be grounded somewhere else as well?

i have a 690 and i dont hear static until i get above 50. must be something else wrong, or a bad HU

If you did not change anything from the last install, obviously the head unit is bad.

Pioneer has some of the best features and specs, and I'm shopping for a new deck... but reading this board for only a few minutes, it's obvious Pioneer has some serious issues... I'm sticking with Kenwood or Panasonic. I'd take that deck and return it or throw it in the trash... a head unit that has noise and requires repair right out of the box is not worth your time.

^ what about Alpine? Eclipse? Ken/pan are far from high quality till you reach into the highest of high in their lineup.

Alpine and Eclipse are fine... also Clarion.

No Pioneer or Sony for now.

My pioneer 6900UB (Same as your premier) also has a light static sound at anything above volume 1. The noise is not there on volume 0.


I fixed the alt whine with a ground loop isolator (grounding the RCAs only made it worse for me)

but i can not lose the static sound

i have the exact same problem, however grounding the rca's did fix the alt whine, but not the static sound, i still have to try a ground loop isolator

ground loop isolator will only help alt whine and not static. Since you already fixed the whine, dont waste your time with the ground loop. I really think the static is directly from the Pioneer deck.

I think most Pioneers do the same thing nowadays

Do you have another deck you could test with?

try not using the stock ground.. make a good ground for the deck and see if that helps

did that, connected right to the battery... even tried disconnecting the stock ground... this stupid static is driving me nuts!
