I actually tried my friends amp, the exact same one, and it caused the same problems so i dont think it's the amp. Here is my new problem with the system, but this all stems from the time i took out the sub.
This problem just started happening. Prior, everything was working perfectly. The last thing i remember doing was taking out my subs before an auto-x, but obviously something else has happened. Everytime I turn on my head unit there is a loud pop coming from all the speakers. Along with a lot of whining and distortion, but some music can be heard. This is all while the engine is off and the key is turned to the accessories on position (halfway).
If I turn the key all the way, but do not crank the engine the whine and distortion gets a little louder. If I start the car the whining/static/distortion is extremely loud and nothing else can be heard, even on the lowest volume setting except 0. When i switch the setting from tuner, to cd, to 6 disk there is a loud pop every time.
I took out the amp and put in a differnt one and I had the same problem, so I don't think it's the amplifier. I used differnt RCA cables and still the same problem. If i unplug the RCA cables from the amp there is no pop or whining (obviously because there is no signal) but i did this to see if i was getting interference from the other wiring. What else can I do before I take apart the entire system, even though I already took apart half of it? Could it be the head unit?
Again, I have never had a problem with my system before but now all i hear is an obnoxiously loud whining and popping sounds and barely any music. if the engine is running i hear absolutely no music just noise. Please help, anything and everything is appreciated.
