I am runnin 2 mtx thunder 15's and a rockford fosgate bdpower 500 amp. It started makeing alot of weird noises... but when i move the cd player around it stops. I dont know if its engine noises or what. It just started doing that. I have the speakers bridged to each other. What could be making those noises? It kinda sounds like i got a nice exhaust sound but when you turn the radio off the inside of my car is real quiet. its pretty damn annoying.

do you have your RCA's and power wires ran on seperate sides of the car?

also, check all of your grounds... make sure all of them are touching bare metal...

no they are together... but that cant be the problem or the ground. Because when i wiggle the deck around a lil it will stop the noise until bass hits then the noise is back till i wiggle it again. and the grounds are fine... secure as a mother fucker straight to the chassis.

other than try a different headunit... see if the problem goes away or not...
