I have the power wires running up one side of the car, and the RCA and speaker wires running up the other. Any thoughts??
it sounds like your ground connection is bad.
Try going to one of the seat belt bolts and sand away any paint in the area.
I used a bolt that secures the stock BA amp to the body as my ground. Also make sure your using the same gauge wire for your ground as you did for power.
