Sounds like a bad ground. Did you sand the ground back to bare metal?
Also running the rca's along side the power wire can cause this.
Also if the headunit has blown an interal ground track the same noise will occour.
So try re grounding your amp.
Moving your rca's if they are running next to the power wire.
And if that dosnt work try grounding your rca's at the headunit.
The screw holes on the side of the cd player are perfect for this. Screw a wire in there and Run it from there and wrap it around the rca's at the back of the headunit.
Good luck.

Also another note, if your ground wire is smaller then your power wire it could cause interferance.
