    Icon9 High pitch noise through car speakers when the engine's running

    I have installed a new car audio system with one 4 channel amp and with a mono channel amp for the subwoofer. I bought everything brandnew (including high quality cables) . But I hear really annoying high frequency noise when i start the engine.
    How can i get rid of that noise? and what are the possibilities to cause that noise??
    A little bit help please

    Re: High pitch noise through car speakers when the engine's running

    Few possibilities:

    1) Your power cable is too close to your RCAs, which cause interference.

    2) The radio is causing the noise. Its very common with Pioneers. The Pioneers have something inside them called a pico fuse. That fuse blows when you hot-swap RCAs, and then it causes the noise.

    My suggestions would be to ground the RCAs if its a Pioneer radio (wouldnt hurt if you did it with any brand), and make sure your RCAs arent near any power cables or anything that interfere with it.

    check your ground on your amps.

    You should consider getting better RCAs. Ones that are properly shielded. Then you won't have this issue no matter where your RCAs / power wires are.

    wrap a bare wire around all of the rca outputs on the back of your HU. Connect that wire to a screw on the HU(since its grounded anyway) or straight to a ground
