    I used to get a whining noise whenever I accelerate really hard.

    I stopped it by not taking the wife out any more......................

    It will be an earth problem. You need to ensure the unit is earthed/grounded properly, if so try adding another earth back to the chassis of the HU. Noise supressors never ever work.

    found the diagram for the parrot and found the ground, would it be just as beneficial for me to splice the ground and bolt it to a ground ? or would i have to actually snip the cable? thanks ben
