CDR 2005 VDO makes a whirring noise when being used - how can I fix this?

If the whirring noise goes up and down based on engine speed then it is a weak ground connection. Also, if you have amps (I have a Kicker mono-block running a cheap MTX 2 by 10" subs,and Kicker 4 channel amp running 4 kicker speakers). I promise I won't say "Kicker" one more time!
I have a whirring noise too just like yours. There are a lot of electronics and wireless devices in modern cars these days that are going to interfere with your audio electronics...especially cell phones operating through the audio system. I can't stress that enough. Cell phones operate through powerful towers which is why they can be so tiny. As you talk the whirring will go up and down based on Tranter level and distance to tower. Hope this helps. I have 1000 watts, so it tends to drown out any minor whirring. LOL.

Get a high level input conversion block pre-amp. Or, on some amps, the high level input is built in.

Every time my sub hits it makes a buzzing

There may be any of several problems.

If you send high pitch signals to a speaker designed for lows, it can cause waves to propagate outward causing a buzzing. Look up the specs on the speaker and verify that your crossover cuts off well below the high end frequency for this speaker.

Another problem can be due to the mounting which can resonate. This should be mounted on at least plywood that is 1/2 inch or more thick. It needs to be wood as plastic or metal will rattle and buzz.

Another problem can be the wiring near this can rattle and buzz.

Check out these possibilities.

49cc scooterwont kick star the kicker makes a grindin noise

You could take out the kicker to inspect for damage or wearing. The grinding noise could be due to oil level that's too low, or its recoil spring out. If you have the manual to guide, revove the kicker side-cover and inspect for any damage.
Take out the starter-motor and have it inspected at a fine parts/repair store.

Kicker sub

Ummmm your sub is 100% fried!!! your voice coil melted and, got warped and the scraping noise you hear is it rubbing your pole piece. The only solution is a new sub. If its under warranty they may fix it they may not, it depends on the warranty. So Sorry dude but the sub's done...
