Engine noise coming from speakers - Car Audio & Video

Posted by on

  • jspot17 May 04, 2009

    I have replaced 2 lower end amps with 2 alpine pdx amps using the existing wiring and now I have engine noise in my midrange speakers which I didn't have before. I checked all connections and rca cables and no fix. Any Ideas. This is in a boat which I have 2 batteries with a perko isolator switch. I have also tried disconnecting the 2nd battery to see if it was some kind of ground loop issue being created from wiring the 2 batteries together. no luck..

This is very common because your power wire will come straight from you battery. You can do one of two things, buy a farad and run it in between the battery or buy a noise filter and run it right before the amp and this will cut out the noise.

Dm605 s2 speakers have static noise

If the noise you hear comes from the tweeter or the midrange speakers, it means your amplifier is noisy; if the noise comes from the woofer, then the internal amplifier (it has its own) of the speaker is noisy. If both speakers are noisy, it is most probable that the "static noise" you hear comes from the external amplifier, which you will have to check or change.

The basics, your battery is used to provide power to the starter. Once the engine is running the alternator then provides current to recharge the battery and run all of your electrical components. so I would suspect the starter is not working to start the engine.
