Well, it was the amp. Picked up one, plugged it in with the current wires (except for the RCAs and Lead turn on) and it came right up.
It seemed very underpowered. Granted I went from a 1000watts RMS amp to a 600watt RMS amp.... but I had to turn the Bass Boost to 12db and the gain almost all the way up... could of been the TV RCAs as well?
Anyways... now I need suggestions for a mono block amp pushing around 1000watts RMS x1 @ 2ohm load... Let the suggestions fly!!

I read a review that said it acually only puts out 550 real wattage at 12.5v to one channel on a 2 ohm load...
Makes me wonder how much my amp is really pushing... its ratted for 1000watts at 14.4v so I imagine some where around 800-900watts at 12.5v. But now I see manufactures pad the numbers... so I could be only sending 600-700ish watts to them....

|mxnate116||i put one of those series of amps in a friends car, sounded real good|

The headunit is maybe a year old at this point... so if it is the radio that makes me extreamly mad considering I paid a decent ammount of change for it.
The Amp is a 4 year old refurbished Alpine amp... so it seems more likely from that stand point. Gonna get another amp and test it tonight so we will know for sure tonight haha.
While I am researching... have any insight to this amp?

|wraitherx||sounds like you pretty much ruled everything out but im thinking that it is the radio that is giving you problems.|

Changed out the RCAs, Re-did the wires behind the Headunit, replaced the Turn on-Led.... worked.
Unpluged new RCAs, plugged in old RCAs, problem returns.
Unpluged old RCAs, plugged in new RCAs, Problem still there...
So I am currently at a loss. The Headunit has three RCA outputs. All three produce the problem. I am guessing its the Headunit or the Amp at this point. Both subs (even when hooked up one at a time) produce the problem so its not the Subs. The wires have all be checked... so I am going to try and get ahold of an amp and put it in to see if it fixes the issue.
Any other ideas?

Will have to do that... I think I got a pair of basic RCAs around here somewhere that used for a tv or something.
The ground is the same guage as the power, yes... 4guage. The ground is attached to the metal just behind the rear seat (where it starts to curve into the trunk). It has a completely flat contact and is attached with a self tapping screw. I tried moving it and it is still tight.

i clicked on post with my last statement around 6p.m. went and ate. came back it was still working on posting.
wraith is right that u can check rca before just replacing them that way and it could rule them out as a problem.

|castine917||i think 1 of your rca or other wires might have a little bit of a cut that is near enough to something else to cause the noise but i want to rule out the head unit as having a problem since it is the easiest to move. replacing the old rca is not a bad idea.|
|January 17th, 2010 08:14 PM|
|wraitherx||I would do a check on the rca's. easiest way to do it is to pull the deck back out and then take a set of new rca's and then run them over the seats to the amp and plug them in. this way you can rule them out without having to take anything out yet. where do you exactly do you have your ground for your amp at and is it the same guage as the power wire?|

|Zatrekaz||Tried that... could not get it to revert back to working.|
|January 17th, 2010 06:13 PM|
|mxnate116||try taking it back out and moving the wires around and see if it returns, that could help track down the prob. since you said when it was out it was fine and when you put it back in it came back, makes me think something is loose or broken|
