unfortunately there is no pre outs on it i used an rca converter.i think this is the problem as it is not properly shielded. might be a good excuse to get a new h/u  Grin

There are 2 other wires that you can just connect to the rearmost speaker wiring instead of using the RCA connection. I'm still using the standard 2007R head unit with mine and have connected it up this way without any problems Wink

to make things easier to see if this will sort the issue, try bridging the L & R input wires and connecting them both to the same side rear most speaker terminals while disconnecting the RCA wires from the sub. If the noise goes, bingo, if not then keep looking! Smiley

 i have tried and put another h/u with sub pre out and there is no interference at all.i will put the blame on the RCA converter as the culprit.ill try the option you've told me but i think it would be after the BB as my gal is in the garage for a bumper re spray and i cant have it back till lunchtime tomorrrow,and by friday noon im setting off for birmingham and stay there overnight for the BB!!

paul, did you mean speakers at the last row of seats? if it is do you know how to get access to these? or just prize it off with a screwdriver?

thanks,

Andrew, do you have the tonneau cover on your Gal? If so you can remove the big holder near to the C pillar to get basic access to the speaker wiring. If not then you might be able to get access going up through the rear cubby hole (IIRC yours is fitted on the passenger side? - this gives you less access to the speaker than on the drivers side where the cubby pannel is much larger and goes within arms length of the speaker!) Failing this then you will have to remove the rear side trim to get access which is a ball ache. It'd be a lot easier to move the sub to the driver's side and re-wire it to the front again!

To test the theory that it's the RCA causing the interference, you could temporarily wire it up to the driver's side speaker which is a lot easier to get to and then take it from there?
