    cant hear the noise.

    If i had to guess i'd say your amp's tunning is to high. Lower the hz to what ever you boxed is tuned to. Your sub could just be playing high notes.

    Ask the guys on hawaii car audio, i seen you been posting stuff there

    ok good, running your power cable to the amp, and running the rca near the power makes a noise as what you are describing, seems that maybe its something else.

    The only thing I noticed was that your sub sounds completely out of balance with the rest of your system. Maybe you're just going through that bass-crack-sub-honk phase. Tell us your procedure for setting levels.

    what????


    i guess im wrong with the subs, it coming from the front speakers???? it has a ringing noise from the tweeter and the mid, unwanted noise that not part of the song like in the video. they are connected directly to the deck no amp beside the crossover that came with the mb quartz.

    What's with all of the question marks? You don't know what you hear? The thread title is "sub problem" and you describe a ringing noise so people are listening to your video for a ringing noise in your sub.

    Now you post this and nobody knows what to think. If you want help, you need to accurately describe the problem you are having to begin with.

    That said, and I'm guessing here, what I think you are saying is that you have alternator whine. There are a BAZILLION alternator whine threads here and even more articles on it that you can find through Google. There are a lot of common causes and it would be easier if you did some legwork and confirmed that this is indeed your problem, and if so, rule some of these common things out as the cause.

    Too much for TW to know
    Could be not a great ground connection on your sub's amp... Hook your sub up to one of your friends set up to see if it has that ring.

    MRP - I think that's an artifact of the camcorder framerate.

    I'm saying I don't know what you are hearing because you've made a concerted attempt to provide as little information as possible. Nothing abnormal can be heard in your video. See if you can isolate that noise and provide a more helpful explanation of what it sounds like and where it's coming from. If it only happens when the sub hits then it sounds like a vibration that you think is coming from the speakers in front, see if you can reproduce it with no sub.

    If you can, provide you high pass and low pass settings. You might be trying to reproduce frequencies too low for your components. Did you hook this up yourself?

    If you are grounded to your seat, change it!

    Get a good metal ground and/or ground directly to your frame
