Question about Rockford Fosgate Punch P325.1 Car Audio Amplifier
The reason for the 3' min. on your ground cable is that interference is picked up with longer gound cables. Especially if it passes close to any electrical components, e.g. spark plugs, capacitors, anything with electrical current. These signals are amplified within the amp. (because this is what amps do) and distributed to your speakers. you could try a noise filter / noise suppressor but I've never had luck with those. You could also try finding a metal part of the frame (if there are any) and attach your ground to a bolt along that frame and if your more advanced you could create a hole and use a screw to tighten the ground to the frame. Small note to that, boats create a lot of vibration so use a ground screw with a sort of tooth like seration at the head that grips as it tightens (so it won't come lose). If you have an extra battery you may want to attach the amp directly to an independant power source to see if your getting the same hum. A direct short in your electrical system will create the same sounds. A bad ground your electrical system will do this also. You may also want to check you high and low band pass frequencies if applicable. Set them to high and you'll get a hum. I would start there adjusting them down or setting them to the center and adjust accordingly if this stops the hum. I'm running 4200 watts all together and if I adjust to high I get interference just from the force of the amp itself. Good luck. Hate electrical problems on vehicles, too many wires.
