sounds like dodgy RCA's then, or even a dodgy earth at the headunit.

possible dodgy RCA's...i only have an amp for my sub, and the way i did it was power cable down drivers and rca's + remote down the left....n i didnt go too cheap on cables.

Some of my mates suffered similar problems from using $15 RCA's from supercheap....i didnt go real crazy but spent $50 on my stinger RCA's and haven't had any troubles. Power cables are also half decent ones ($200 stinger power pack) for 4guage earth, power, remote and fuse.

$50-60 will get you some great quality lighting audio 5m RCAs - with gold terminals....these imo are as expensive as you need to go unless you suffer from really bad interference or have no choice but to run your signal cables along bigger then 4 guage wire then maybe go as big as DLS which are round thr $115-129 or more extreme but yeh for most setups $45+ is gonna get you wat u need....

IMO tho id be seeing a car audio specialist in your area getting them to see how you have your system cabled and where you have the cables, show them your grounding points...explain the power of your gear and see if they recommend and isolator/noise supprssor on the main power feed....this would only set u back bout $45 for a decent suppressor...and normally as a last result so this should eliminate any more noise your gonna encounter

Cheers
Kev

One thing to definitely avoid is running the rca's or cd stacker cables near the efi computer or similar switching devices........
