Other folks had any whine when setting up an aftermarket system in a Soob?
Are we talkin' amp quality versus proper grounding? Bought mine on Ebay for cheap.

I can also not stress enough...FUSE EVERYTHING! Your "100 Watt Amp" will turn into 100watts of molten firey plastic, along with the arching along the line, one day if something shorts to ground. Fuse close to the battery, as well as near the item itself in order to be safe on all ends. IF you are only going to fuse one, fuse close to the battery or other powersource.

20-amp Noise Filter
$21.99 Brand: RadioShack
Catalog #: 270-055
I'd guess any mobile radio store could help you with a larger one that filters out alternator noise.
CRANK IT UP.

Power is coming directly from the battery, which itself is grounded to the engine block.
Do these filters hurt the sounds you want to hear, cut out certain frequencies?

The battery can act as a fairly good filter itself. You could try placing a 100 microfarad capacitor, with a 25volt DC rating, on the positive lead of the amp and place the negative lead of the capacitor to ground to see if that will remove the noise. If it works I would solder it to the inside of the amp if you are comforable about working on the inside.
