Question about Eclipse XA5000 Car Audio Amplifier
You're hearing whine from the alternator as it charges the battery. You could reduce it by turning the input level down on the amp, or by adjusting the filter on the high end. You can also buy a whine filter kit.
One last thing... you may have blown one of the diodes in the Alternator itself when you shorted the speaker wire. It would still work and charge the battery, but would not be able to filter the whine like it should.
Hope that helps...
