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
