If the other speakers play after the door speaker wires are disconnected, the problem is likely a speaker wire shorted to the door. If the vehicle had OEM amps and you didn't bypass them, that could also be a problem.

Disconnect the door speaker wires from the amp and check for continuity from the speaker wires to ground. There should be none. Also check the resistance across the speaker wires. They should read approximately the same as the rated impedance of the speakers.

My sub randomly started making a loud humming noise. The stereo was not even on at the time.

The humming sound is 60 cycles or a harmonic thereof emanating from poor filtering in the power supply. Better get the supply serviced before the speaker gets damaged.

I replaced the stereo and now all kinds of wierd electrical problems

quite a common problem with computer controlled cars (have an ECU or similar to control engine, brakes etc)

unfortunately the only simple answer is to remove the new item.... even then, some faults might need "clearing" by a main dealer diagnostic machine

Wierd problem with my subwoofers please help

It sounds like your RCAs are pickin up noise somewhere, are your rca cables next to your amp power wire? this could be the problem. Just recheck your signal wires and make sure they aren't close to any significant power cables. Also does the noise only come from your subs or your car speakers to? If it comes from all your speakers you may have a headunit problem... hope this helps
