    Muddy sound from right speaker after grounding RCAs?

    So today I finally decided to ground my RCAs as the hissing noise got louder since I installed my system 2 months ago. Before grounding the RCAs I noticed some crackling sounds out of the right side front speaker as well as the hissing noise. Well today after I grounded the RCAs on the head unit, the right speaker has some static to it and it sounds muddy compared to the left speaker... what could be wrong? :\

    Okay so I was a ******* and i said there was no alternator whine when my car wasn't on... actually there is still alternator whine but it's a lot quieter... I'm still thinking it's the RCA cable.. hopefully it's not the amp
