This ones for the Audiophiles in the group:
Just installed an aftermarket radio in my 86 5KCSTQ. I used the
factory speakers and hooked directly to the factory wiring for them
including the rears with the Audi amp.
I get a tremendous amount of engine speed dependent alternater whine
through the unit. I tried powering and grounding the unit directly at
the battery...no change. I installed a quality noise supressor in
line with the power from the battery....no change. I tried replacing
the altenator with a rebuilt Bosch unit....no change.
In a last attempt I removed the belt to see what the difference
was...much better (no more high pitched whine) with a hint of engine
spark noticable (I think I need new plug wires anyway. Next week).
The factory radio had a bit of whine also before I removed it but due
to the low power amp it was more tolerable.
ANY ideas?? I've been tuneless for a month and am going crazy:-s
86 5Kcstq w/o any tunes...
