Static thru speakers at mid-high volume all the time

I just installed this in my 79 Toyota Corona. The car is prewired for four speakers. I have the two front speakers installed, and the head unit. The speakers share a common ground, and the head unit has its own. I'm getting a terrible static when I turn up the volume either with the tuner or iPod. Help!

Your head unit may not have a common ground for the speakers. If you have two wires for each speaker coming from the head unit, rewire the speakers for a floating ground, that means two wires per speaker, or use a floating ground adaptor. These radios now a days are NOT like the radios in the hay days of care audio. If you already did not cause any damage to your unit, you certainly will if you continue to use it the way it is hooked up now. Good Luck

Sub static at low volume fine at high volume

Prob always there just can't hear it at higher volumes. Check the grounds of the amps an the Caps if you have them. Then check the preamp wires from the head unti to the amp. Keep it as shielded from power wires as you can. Some times tying a ground from the amp back to the head unit ground can fix a hiss or static

Basically, I've noticed a fairly faint static noise while listening to music at about 30%-40& with the Logitech z-2300's. I dont know if the problem persists when the speakers are any higher because I...

Most speakers I have owned or listened too have a faint buzz or static to them. If you are using a computer turn up the volume on the computer all the way and then you should not have to turn the volume knob on your speakers past 20% that's what i did with mine and they sound fine. If you are using something else like an i pod or something like that make sure you turn the volume on the device all the way up to ensure you don't have to turn the speakers up that high. If that's not your problem then i don't know.

How to install 4 way speakers

Exactly the same way, you would for a normal speaker.
Four-ways combine a woofer, a mid-range, a tweeter, and a "super tweeter" into one speaker. But it should still only have one positive and one negative.

Volume low on all four speakers, some static (amp or head unit problem)

I would check the amp first, especially if you have very low sound on the speakers. Before amps were made, bad output transistors would create the same effect.

1210 problem

Those are just standard phonograph player characteristics in my experience. You'll hear a tap on the deck because there's essentially a live mic ( the needle ) physically coupled with the record on the turntable and the rest of the phonograph player even though they try to dampen the coupling of the turntable as much as possible. The rumbling noise at high gain is because the turntables being driven by a motor via gears or a belt and creates some  vibration, wich is transmitted through the turntable and picked up by the transducer ( needle ), low frequency rumble, just like a recording studio on a busy street may pick up from road vibration/ noise.
