Are you getting static from all your speakers or just front or rear? If from one set you could always swap front & rear outputs on the amp to rule out a set of speakers or wires feeding the speakers.
If you have static on all channels, you will have to test at multiple points. I'd start at the amp by swapping the input with an iPod or something similar - I use a 3.5mm male to female RCA adapter and plug directly into the amp's input. If you still have static, then the problem is likely with the amp / installation (usually a bad ground).
If the static is gone then you'll have to move up through the signal path and continue troubleshooting. I'm not familiar with the audio control unit you're using and if it's even possible to use the iPod test. Assuming you can use an ipod for the input signal and the static is gone, then you should probably check the connections you tapped from the factory amp. If you do have static with an iPod feeding the audio control unit, then you know the unit is most likely the culprit.....could be the unit or installation - bad ground, loose connection...etc.
Almost forgot, what are your amp gains set for.....I'm assuming they're not maxed.
Good luck and let us know how you make out.
