    alternator whine!

    I have an ultimate amp running my nakamichi components and when I started my car I can hear an annoying whine. I have it grounded to my passenger seat and the power and rcas are separated. I have sanded down to the metal before grounding and that didn't seem to help at all.

    Any suggestions? I have a 91 tercel.

    Thanks for you help

    Nick

    I wouldn't ground it to your passenger seat. Try popping out a door sill and scraping away the paint with a screwdriver and grounding there.
