Hi, :confused:

Just installed a couple of speakers and an amp in the back of my van by the wheel arches Trouble is, i'm getting a whistling sound coming from the speakers when i drive (pitches up and down with the revs). When the engine is off, there is no whistling from the speaker.
Baffled me.....Any thoughts?????

thats a problem with the earth to your amp.
makes sure that you are earthing to bare metal, so sand it down through the paint,

also what gauge cable are you using for you power and earth cable?

Thanks for the replies.

Yep, you were right. Earth cable wasn't touching enough bare metal. Been out in the van to remove more paint and hey presto, works a dream.

As for cable gauges, no idea. Just used what came with the amp. Seem to work ok.

Thanks again for the quick replies.
