buzzing noise??

hey guys,My Fraternity brother has a zook and it started doing this buzzing sound out of the speakers, he has am amp an aftermarket deck, a bunch of speakers and some fog lights. it buzzes when you rev the engine and increases along with the idle. we thought he crossed some wire someplace but that didn't seem to be the problem unless we just didn't find the wire. what else could it be. Some one else said it could be the alternator, any suggestions.oohh it only does it when the radio is on.

Driving off-road needs to be done well, like throwing a fly at a rising trout in dark, calm waters. Take pride in the task, and the reward is more than the destination.

Re: buzzing noise??

well sounds to me that you need to find a better ground for the radio or put you a noise filter on the power line to the radio

Re: buzzing noise??

I would do 2 things: as stated before make sure the deck and amp are grounded well and the ground should be no more than 2 feet from the unit (the closer the better), next I would run the rca cables from the deck to the amp on the opposite side of the car from the power to the amp. dont run the rca's and power together because the rca's are likely to pick up noise from the power wire.

<font color=blue>Also if you are running small wires that could be your problem. Use a larger ground wire on the amp. The only time I ever completely removed the engine whine from my stereo system was when I went with monster cable. </font color=blue>

Re: buzzing noise??

Is it a new install, or did the noise just suddenly appear?

Keeping the Rca's seperate from the power etc like was mentioned is a must.

If it just started happening, you might check your coil or plug wires to see if one of them are jumping fire. I had my system pick up a ticking noise in the speaker at the same time I picked up an off idle miss. Coil wire was jumping fire to firewall.
