    Change or shift where your ground wire is mounted to. You're hearing your engine through your speakers, right?

    some times if you have run your rca or remote wires by your power wire you will get that noise it is your altenator going up with the rpms

    Re: hissing sounds from amp.

    Simple problem with a simple solution. You have a voltage differential in your grounds, usually between the head unit and the amplifier ground. Remove the amplifier ground and either sand down the section you are grounding to, or move the ground. The best way to ensure that you do not have a differential is to use a DMM.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Sometimes the only solution is ground loop isolators.
