I have tried so many things but none worked so far. I have a JVC KW-DB93BT and a McHammer Mystic 5.1 amp. When i connect 1 RCA cable to my amp from my head unit there is no whine, but as soon as i put in the other RCA cable into the head unit alternator noise starts coming from the speakers that are connected to the amp.
I also tried a few fixes from this pinned topic (>>>Engine whine and ground loop fixes... take two) but none have worked so far.

Just to be clear i literally know nothing about car audio installations and i need help so i came here.
I have a renault clio hatchback 2007 and i am wishing to install the skar audio spx-65c component system to the vehicle
i dont want it to be runnning very loud, so i would like to stick to the stock amplifier if that is possible with the components i have brought (but only if it would work). Also how would i go about wiring up the external crossovers to the items that come stock in the car?
what will i have to change / buy (besides from the mountings in the door) to make all the of this work?
any help is greatly appreciated
I ordered the head unit, wiring harness from crutchfield as well as a little controller module thing and another harness so the steering wheel controls will work. However, looking at the instructions provided by crutchfield, it says that both of the wiring harnesses need to connect to the factory 20-pin connector. I'm pretty sure you can't stack them/connect more than one in this way.
The whole reason i ordered through crutchfield was so i wouldnt have to splice into my factory wiring, which makes me uncomfortable (i dont want to create a problem).
I thought maybe i could splice the two harnesses together, but they dont have leads in the correct pin positions. Is there a way to splice a wire into one of these multi-connectors without cutting into my factory wiring?
Basically i have this:
[steering wheel] --> [factory 20pin connector] <-- [crutchfield steering adapter harness] <--[control module] --> [head unit]
but at the same time i have [factory 20pin connector] <--[crutch. receiver harness] <--[head unit]
Either of these are easy enough by themselves, but i'm trying to do both at once, and as far as i can tell i can't snap both harnesses onto the factory connector at the same time.
If anyone can lend some knowledge please help out .
i have an aftermarket stereo with recently upgraded door speakers , now I am trying to install a 5 channel amp and subwoofer so I could boost all the door speakers and also power my subwoofer.
I’m pretty confused on which wires have to run to which place , I wanted to just connect the from the amp to the head unit to power all of the speakers from one place instead of running all new speaker wires. I’m trying to install this weekend just need more guidance
Thanks Guys 🤙

I’m hoping someone can help me find the right adaptor for my car stereo.
It’s my first car, a Volkswagen Beetle 2001, and the stereo is a Sony one (see photos). The previous stereo was taken out of the car so I’m not sure if I have all the right wires to get this one set up.
I’ve attached photos of the stereo and the wires that I’ve currently got in my car.
I did originally take this to Halford’s but they said they didn’t sell the correct adaptor and that I’d have to find this on Sony’s website.
Does anyone know the correct adaptor, and the best/cheapest way of getting this?
Thanks in advance for any help! :)
