Re: Alternator whine... grrrr
maybe your speaker wires are pickin up the signals... you did say that you're using the eact same wiring, only changed amps. I had an incredible amountof alt whine at first, but when I moved the cables to another location, it cured right up. I trust that you DID the grounds really well. However, did you scrape all the paint off? It' snot easy scraping car paint off... dremel paint removing metal brush didn't budge e a thing, soi had to use sanders to do it...

Spent the weekend playing with my system. Moved the front speakers to run off 2 channels of my USX-4065 instead of the RF 160.2. Got some nasty alternator whine now. PMRO (Pisses Me Right Off).
The amp ground I'm using is a big fat stainless bolt with lockwashers attached to a clean hole in one of the trunk support brackets. Don't think it could be any better. The RF amp used the same ground wire and was real quiet.
Anybody out there who has cured alternator whine, what'd you end up doing to fix it?
