engine noise

hey guys,
Im getttin my engine niose out of my subs.. I checked the ground and its done good... could my deck contribute to this prob ??
the amp is a audiobhan a8002t and the subs are pioneer subs.
does the audiobhan really give 800watts rms as it states ? or is it all distorted signals???
i dunno i just hate the way my subs sound... it makes the car rattle like crazy, but i got no bass in the car... it just totally sucks....
ne ways please help me out...
thanks....

Knock the power rating down by about 60% to get close to what the Audiobahn really is capable of. As for the sound of the subs, this is more about the box than the amp. For the sound, do you have another amp or eq in the system, what is the cd player?

I have a sony xplod for now , but im gettin a pioneer deck soon.and the audiobahn is really that crappy???so do u recomend i find a better amp?? or what?? cuz the bass im gettin is not low like the jls or the jbls ive had in the past...? and the amps crossover starts at 50hz to 120hz
would that be causing the bass to not sound low and deep?
thanks

get a meter out see what your grounds are at the deck,amp,amd all the toys if there not the same ground #
if you get the ground same and you have the niose look at your rca's ,then if it is not that look to see if you have your rca next to your power wire also see if your speaker wire is next to your power wire

A couple questions...

Is your power wire and rca's run together or seperate?

Did you sand the paint away at your grounding point?

Are the connectors crimped and soldered?

Don't have much experience with Audiobahn but they're not anything close to what they claim. Try running a ground from the Hu to the same point as the amp.

What rca's are you running?

Have you done the big 3? (battery ground, engine ground, alternator power upgrade)

instal man is right
make sure your ground is making full contact to the chassis metal
don't run your power with your signal cables
and in some cases the deck could have a bad power feed to it causing it to almost make a screaming noise through your speakers, in that case there are little filters that can be wraped around your decks power wire to eliminate that
