Question about Audio & Video Receivers
You have a grounding issue.
The RCA inputs of the amp are many times NOT tied to chassis ( the chassis of the car ) ground.
Same goes for the RCA outputs of your head unit.
The speaker outputs of your amp SHOULD NOT EVER be tied to chassis ground.

TIPDon't use a normal cable or satellite program for this; you're about to disconnect the cable that provides the audio and video for your cable/satellite feed.
WARNINGOddly enough, this solution (surge protection) can sometimes increase the humming.
WARNINGIt is unsafe to use a two-prong to three-prong "cheater" plug on the subwoofer power cord to solve the hum problem. Even if the subwoofer came with a cheater plug in the box, it's REALLY not safe to do. Don't do it.
