Right side component makes noise, not a good noise.
Heres one for you guys. Re-did some of my wiring and set the gain on my sub amp as well as component amp. All should be good, one would think.
My component amp is a 4 channel JBL Px300.4, love it so far. I had an RCA break off inside the rear rca input. So while re-wiring this I figured i'd take the amp out and fix it. I drilled into the broken off piece, threaded a small screw in and pulled it out. It wasn't pretty but it worked good. I feel it was necessary to mention this as could be part of the problem (? keep reading).
Now when I hooked everything back up I wanted to check the front channel and rear channel (bridged to two channels) to make sure no damage was done. The left side sounds great so I unplugged that side and plugged in the right side. As soon as I connect the + and - for the right side, there is a small spark and loud distortion type noise coming from that side of the component set. You can't hear any music playing its just garbage noise. It reminds me as if I am plugging a speaker into the wall. Needless to say, as soon as I saw the spark and heard the noise I disconnected the speakers immediately. Hooked them up to the other channel, and same story.
So basically, with the left side connected, everything is fine. When I try the right side, loud distortion. It doesn't matter the volume of the HU, the noise is still loud even if at 1 or 2 volume level.
I'm thinking im gonna have to trace wires back to the passive xover and see if i can find anything. Weird thing is I really hadn't done anything on that side of the vehicle regarding component wires or any wires for that matter.
I've ruled out f'ed up RCA because of the work I did, bc there is no problem what so ever with the left side. You'd figure if there was a problem both sides would be affected, right?

Also, bc of the broken RCA (I was using two runs of RCAs, one pair for front channel and one pair for rear channel) I have completely disconnected the broken pair from both the amp and HU. So I'm stuck with only one pair of RCAs which I have on the front outputs from HU and have alternated from the Front and Rear channels on the amp. Either or... I still get the same noise. Also I should be getting an RCA Y splitter from knukonceptz tomorrow.
I'm probably missing something real easy here. If you got any suggestions please let me know... Long thread helped me thaw out a little bit... back to the outside!
Thanks for reading.
