Default Interference in Rear Speakers

I'm getting alternator (or what I assume is alternator) noise in my rear speakers only. What can I do to prevent this noise?

I have tired checking some grounds, but can I put something around the wires to prevent the interference? I cut back some wires to install a cd changer, and thats when the noise started.

I tried looking for a possible wire that is loose, but I haven't see anything yet (I will be checking again tomorrow). I just am at a complete lost of where the noise is coming from :(
What can be done that I haven't tried yet?

Thanks guys

Just to keep your power and wires as far apart as possible to reduce noise.

can I use any kind of shielding to keep them apart? I was just thinking, i bet aluminum foil would work, but then i thought about it some more, and i didn't like the idea. what is best for shielding, and i will definately be moving the wires today

anybody have a wire diagram to tell me what the colors mean?

Is this the stock radio? I thought you were talking aftermarket.

Aftermarket...run the power on the opposite side of the car from the speak wires.

Stock...check your grounds.

I'd check the battery cables to start. they are known for corroding etc.

Other memebers should have more ideas
