On the deck there is a ground wire. Attach it to a better ground . Also oyu can ground the case of the deck. If all else fails buy a noise supressor

could be alternator whine. I heard in the past that E30's were notorious with the bad ground. Best thing to do is reground the deck or you could just blast the radio all the time

Also make sure negative and positive wires are as far as possible from each other
