    Bryzan I conneted the the RCA and powered up last of all so this shouldn't be the problem, also the sound is crystal clear with the engine off. Alijames. if nothing else works i'll give these a try. I assume you install at the amp end of the RCA and not the head unit end

    Is it that it is air or just that there isn't enough fuel getting through and what you are seeing is vacuum bubbles (not enough fuel to fill the pipe entirely). Then this would suggest a blockage in the fuel lines or in the tank soemwhere
