    Default different question about alternator whine

    So I am getting some whine from only my rear right speaker. I assume that its just because my speaker is close to my power wire but its still at least 1 foot away, I dont know if thats not far enough or what.

    I think it is alternator whine because when I step on the gas the whine gets a little louder and changes in pitch.

    Anyways the question is that after I drive around for a while the noise goes away. Could anyone give me a reason why the noise would go away after driving the car for a while?

    I dont make habbit of running my power wire near my RCA's or speaker wires...but unless they are super cheap- thats not causing your problem. More then likely its a ground issue. What is in your system...amps etc... more info to help ya.

    Peace sells, but who's buying?

    It's not necessarily alternator whine b8ut more likely a bad grounding problem. Move teh power wire to the other side of the car from the RCA cables if you can and check to make sure all grounds are secure and contacting good, clean metal, not painted.
    You're just jealous 'cause the voices don't talk to you!
