anybody running this system with aftermarket amps yet? If so did you have engine whine before and is it fixed?
I currently run a loc to rcas to 2 separate amps. One for speakers the other for subs. Then i tie back into the factory harness to get to the speakers. I like that I can clean this setup up a little and run rca's all the way back. But need to decide if I should tie back into the harness like I have it now, or run separate speaker wires to each door. I guess I can play around a little but just curios if anyone has experimented with this yet.
I am running aftermarket amps but I am going through the factory harness to an Audio Control LC6i. I only replaced the factory sized speakers, 6.5" infinity Kappa's in the doors and Kicker 8" subs in the rear shelf and each speaker is getting 100 watts. I haven't installed the Kayhan yet because of the stupid cold weather and snow in the last few days (already cracked a clip on the driver side kick panel trying to remove it the other day) but I don't think any of this will change the engine whine because you're still running off of factory wiring. I think the LC6i that I am using reduced the amount of whine I hear because the only way I can hear it in my system is when the radio is on but the volume is on zero, otherwise very clear. I do get another whine everyday, but that one is coming from under the hood...
