Maybe check your RCAs if your using an amp, I've had this problem before, one of the ends was unscrewing and getting interference.

sounds like the same problem in my friends Envoy.

He ran the RCA's down the left side of the envoy and the power/ground down the right side that way there was no interference

are you sure the sound is comming from your speakers?

I had my diff bearings go and they whine just like the speakers do. I turned my radio off and the sound was still there.

learn to read pplz, the amp is GONE, it's just the deck now . And shielded RCA's do not interfere with power anyways.

Yeah, the sound is definately coming from all 4 speakers, fluctuates with RPM, buzzing\whining.

We had that happen to a system that we hooked up a couple of weeks ago, and it was because we ran the rca's, the power wires, and the speaker wires all down te same route. We just rewired everything seperate and that solved the problem. Sounds like you have something else going on though.

Maybe re ground your deck yourself or follow the ground wire for the deck to where it terminates and make sure its good.
