I am using a sound gate adapter that the xm unit plugs into. Because I am running a pioneer changer and a pioneer xm my changer plugs into the aux input on the xm. This way I can have both xm and a changer all on my factory deck. All I have to do is hold down the scan button for two seconds and it will switch from changer to xm. Kind of nice for a real stealth install.
I think I may have found the grounding issue, the ground wires from the changer, xm, and the soundgate all come together into one butt connector and then one wire goes to the battery.
I am not sure if this is the problem or if the issue is in the signal cable being run next to power. Does it matter if the source wire, ie changer preamp runs next to power or just line level to the speakers? The other thing that leads me to believe it is an issue with the signal wires is the fact that the whine is alot louder while listening to XM than it is with the changer.
Thanks for your advice guys, I will hopefully fix the problem this weekend!
