Question about Car Audio & Video
Hello... sorry to hear you are having problems. Though there is no actual way to diagnose a problem 100% without seeing it in person and checking everything... it sounds to me like one of 2 problems. First, make sure you have a good ground connection. Do not use factory body bolts, seat bolts, trunk lid bolts, etc. Put a ring terminal on the ground wire and connect it solidly with self-tapping screws directly to a CLEAN unpainted bare metal part of the car. Use a wire brush to throroughly clean the grounding point. You also need the same size grounding cable at the battery between the negative post of the battery and the body of the vehicle (body ground). If you require a 0ga connection for ground and you connect to the body, but you only have an 8ga body ground at the battery, that will not suffice. The second thing I would check would be the RCA cables. It sounds like you may have screwed through the RCA cable or pinched them. These are to good candidates for the problem you are describing. Hope this helped. If you need further assistance, just add a comment and I will reply back. Good luck with your venture!
