    what gives?

    i started to put my system in like a week ago, got everything hooked up. turned the key over and it was bumping fine, so i got ready to go and started the car and they started making really bad engine noise. and then theyd sorta pop a little bit. so i unplugged em right away, and regrounded it, tried 3 diff sets of rcas, reran power, and swapped decks. not sure what else it could be...

    How close are your RCAs to your power wire?

    Opposite side of the car. Tried backing up to my old car where they worked and ran the rcas from that car to the amp in the other car and it did the same thing. Its weird tho cuz everything worked fine in my old car. Same equipment just swapped cars. O and its grounded to the frame.

    Re: what gives?

    Just grasping at straws here, but make sure your radio ground is sufficient, also do u have a equalizer? Try running your rcas just over the seats to see if something's messing with the rcas where they are ran. Do ur rcas run close to your amp ground?
