Default Diagnosing static in certain frequencies

I've just finished my install of a kicker zx700.5 amp w/ their qs65.2 components, run passively w/ the stock crossovers, through my clarion dxz785usb.

Everything really sounds great, I was able to use the equalizer to level out a few peaks and valleys (nothing too crazy or scattered)

The issue I'm having is I get a bit of thump in between tracks and get a bit of what seems like staticy background noise in the mids-highs when listening to tracks with lots of ambient noise or feedback (such as punk).

As for power, i'm running a 4 gauge wire routed through the drivers side, my RCAs are routed through my passenger side and don't cross (6 RCAs) i swapped them around and I still get the same type of distortion is how i can best describe it. Ground is about 7-8 inches long and on the chassis w/ a kicker ground distro block.

Any thoughts would be appreciated

all i can think of right now is

1) upgrade ground on HU

2) swap out HU

HU is a clarion dxz785usb and the gains are set at about a 1/4. The speakers are rated for 100 watts and the full range channels are rated at about 120 watts

All I can say is ground your RCA's at the DECK. I had a problem like this before on my DXZ665mp.
