Question about Rockford Fosgate Car Audio & Video

I have a 2004 Nissan Titan Pickup Crew Cab with Rockford Fosgate Speaker System; without Navigation system. i have a laptop that i plug into the aux cable to play music with but when i plug it into the inverter (batery is weak on the laptop) it causes a loud staick sound and you can bearly hear the music. i have tried everything from changing inverters to spicalty cables with noise limiters and isolated grounds. it does not happen when i use an extintion cord from my house but i cant take that with me down the road. how can i elimate the feed back when hooked to the inverter?

Hello kennycalve1,

It sounds like you picking up noise from the inverter itself. There's a transformer on the output that changes direction 60 times a second to produce the AC. A signal will radiate a short distance from the inverter and is being induced into the other wiring. I'd try plugging the inverter into another outlet in the vehicle (perhaps in the back) and maybe install a "Rube Goldberg" shield. Likewise, use a shielded cable from the laptop to the AUX input and put a "ferrite bead" on the output end. Use a large bead and wrap the cable one turn through the center.

Hope this helps.

Another solution is to try running a ground strap to the case of the inverter, or by a cigarette lighter adapter/charger for your laptop. Bypass the inverter. I have a adapter for my acer. ( 12v to 19v adapter made specifically for acer)

Where is the aux plug for this radio; Eclipse's optional Rockford Fosgate premium audio system


The Mitsubishi Eclipse with the Rockford Fosgate premium audio system does not actually have an aux plug. When you are scrolling through the sources, one of them listed is an AUX. This implies that there is a headphone jack somewhere in the vehicle where you can plug an iPod into and play it through the system. The port, however, was never actually installed on all pre-2009 eclipses.

The only way to access this feature of the stereo is to obtain an AUX cable from the mitsubishi dealer, which will be a wire harness that connects to the back of the head unit and provides an additional AUX port cable allowing you to plug in your iPod. You can talk to your local mitsubishi dealer about the cable, from what I hear, its rather expensive, and then go to best buy, somewhere similar, to have them install it.
