    Got grammar? Try grounding the RCA's at the head unit and see if that fixes your noise.

    You might have the ground trace problem.

    Re: are my hu's preouts damaged

    You'll still have full control. All you have to do is take some wire and strip a couple of inches from one end. Wrap that long exposed area around the connection point between the rcas of the head unit and cable so you get metal-on-metal contact. Then put some tape over it to keep it in place. Finally, attach the other end of the wire to a ground location. Do this for each channel you have ran.

    On a side note, did you try the other amp yet?

    Re: are my hu's preouts damaged

    i tryed the kenwood excelon amp and it did same thing. Could it have been the mtx amp that damaged my Hu's preout, the dashboard is off so im going to try that but i did the same thing except i only did that to the white input from hu and i didnt attach it to bare metal and it went away but i dont think the sub was working

    If you attached a wire at one end and not the other then the wire might as well not be there...

    Was the HU on when you unplugged it? If so, you probably blew the ground trace.

    well the first time it was off then it was on and i disconnected only the white fron the mtx because it made that grinding noise. How can i repair the ground trace. This hu didnt have ground noise and its soo nice i really dont have money to buy a new HU at the moment
