By the way i still have stock speakers which might explain some of this stuff
Whenever my car is on and the speakers are set on really loud but theres like no music playing cause im like between tracks, there like a really loud high pitch huming going on, which goes away the lower i put the volume at
I heard it might have something to do with the altenator... :blink:
I aint sure and it isnt really a problem but it is quite annoying so id apreciate some advice
Also the front left speaker keeps going out whenever i hit a bump and i just starts up again whenever...wtf? Im guessing the wiring is messed up
:05:

Is it the stock radio and amplifier or do you have an external amp installed?

If it's external, it's that the power and ground are running near the amp feeds (RCA wires) and they're distorting the sound. If it's not external, it's just alternator whine. I think improving your ground will better the problem (but probably won't eliminate it).

Yeah...a ground loop isolator might work, and they're only like, what, $25-30, so if it doesn't, you're not losing a whole lot.

as for the speaker cutting out, the connector may be loose or corroded, Water liked to get into my tempos door and kill my connectors.
