View Full Version : Muddy sound from right speaker after grounding RCAs?

04-12-2009, 03:29 PM
So today I finally decided to ground my RCAs as the hissing noise got louder since I installed my system 2 months ago. Before grounding the RCAs I noticed some crackling sounds out of the right side front speaker as well as the hissing noise. Well today after I grounded the RCAs on the head unit, the right speaker has some static to it and it sounds muddy compared to the left speaker... what could be wrong? :\

Bad/pinched/torn RCA cable.

Bad/pinched/torn RCA cable.

Really? ahhh... this *****... I'll hate taking my car apart again :(

I currently have KnuKonceptz ones... should I get the same ones again?

Okay so I was a ******* and i said there was no alternator whine when my car wasn't on... actually there is still alternator whine but it's a lot quieter... I'm still thinking it's the RCA cable.. hopefully it's not the amp :(
