Re: CONNECTED EARTH TO POWER AND VICER VERSA
If it was properly fused, the fuse should have blown without causing any other damage. If it was not properly fused, it probablycaused the reverse protection diode to short and burned a trace on the circuit board.
Any competent repair shop should be able to repair it unless the reverse protection diode opened instead of shorted. If it opened, the damage could be much more severe.

check how good your earth connection is, you may need to scrape of some paint beneath it to get a good connection, kicker amps draw a lot of power so good cable connections are a must. If the earth connection is clean, maybe try thicker cable to allow higher current.
hi input wiring hooks up to speaker wire outputs on the stereo. in 2008 chrysler has no ignition or accessory outputs. everything is digital, if you use a trunkloc from PAC electronics you will be able to hookup your outputs from the deck into this unit and it will provide you with the RCA, and remote power output needed for your system to operate. the factory deck should have battery and ground at the plug but no acc.
Check that your head unit and amplifiers etc are all earthed to the same earth. ie: If connected to the battery earth then connect all earths to battery, or if connected to body earth then connect all to body earth.
Another thing is to check that your RCA Cable or interconnects are not running with your power wires. This can induce line noise.
If all is correct then get yourself a noise suppressor or a ground loop isolator.
Check RCA,s at the back of the head deck, make sure sub is set to low bass frequency, make sure gain is turned up on the amp and head deck has subwoofer enabled and bass on. If you are powering speakers make sure the balance on the head deck is set to 0. Make sure it's wired up properly.
I FOUND WHEN RUNNING MY AMPS IN MY COMMODORE, THAT THE BEST EARTH IS ACTUALLY THE SUB FRAME OF THE CAR!! AS IF YOU FOLLOW THE NEG LEAD FROM YOUR BATTERY IT WILL BOLD ONTO THE CHASSIE OF THE VIEHCLE. SO I JUST EARTHED OUT ALL MY AMPS AND SO ON TO THE BODY (MAKING SURE THERE WAS A GOOD CONNECTION) ALSO MAKE SURE YOUR HEAD DECK IS NOT TOUCHING ANY METAL PARTS IN WHERE YOU MOUNTED IT!!!!! GOOD LUCK....
The noise you are experiencing is due to your rca plug shorting out causing a loop, in outher words, bad earth.
Try getting a noise filter, you take your rca plug and plug it into the noise filter, then wire it to the amp!
you can try a ground loop isolator or relocating your ground [earth].
I hope this helps you out.
check the ground and use a jumper wire and touch the remote and batt on amp you should get it on then if so check your remote wire hooked to the deck the blue wire. also check the fuse if that dosn't work.
