Slight alternator ticking noise? How to fix?
My new system has developed a very slight ticking noise. It's not a whine, it sounds like a taser, but much quiter. It's mostly from the rear speakers, but is present in the fronts to a lesser extent. And of course, I can only hear it while the motor is running. It's quiet enough it doesn't affect the sound, I can just hear it if I turn my head right.
I'm pretty sure it is ground loop noise... However, I don't believe this noise wasn't there before the amp went in.
Should I add a ground loop isolator or try simply grounding the HU case?
