Default Want to hear the most annoying sound in the world?

So I'm bored and I decide to hook up my amp which is powering my subs, to my alpine 6x9s. Figuring maybe it will make them sound a lot better and then possibly get rid of the subs. So I got everything hooked up turn on the stereo, plays for a couple seconds then the loudest, screechiest noise ive ever heard comes from all of my speakers. I freak out turn off my stereo and the car yet the noise still continues for about 45 seconds untill it shuts off. So i unhook everything from the rear speakers besides a litte converter which turns speaker wire into rca plugs. Oh yeah keeping in mind i have the stock head unit. I turn the car on and same thing happens. The only time it won't do it is if i use the balance and put all the music to the front. Does anybody have any clue on why this would happen, especially after everything was diconnnected. I haven't taken off that converter yet, but i want to see if anyone has any ideas. Anything would be greatly appreciated.

so it worked for a few seconds before it screeched??? interesting...

its obviously the line convertor if you disconnected everything but that... are you sure you hooked it up right?

the bonnies (especially the new ones) have a messed up stock system...

take of the convertor..make sure everything is working correctly...then start over..

are you sure you tapped into the speaker wires and not a data signal wire?

Thanks for the tips, but nothing worked. So i guess my stereo is busted, which isn't that bad because i wanted to get a new stereo but never had a reason to. Does anybody know if a double din head unit would fit in the 2000+ bonnies. This is what im looking at, http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn...219118,00.html , it would be pretty sweet if that would fit.

Stupid question here.... Please don't beat me...

In the past with the older stereos( GM Delco ) when I used to do a lot of tinkering, I found that it was entirely too easy to fry the amp in the GM Delco stereo... I learned to be incredibly careful as to what I was doing, as inadvertantly grounding a channel would kill that channel...

In all of the GM stereos that I tinkered with, I have almost never seen the rear channels fail unless I made the mistake as in the above statement... Usually if it was to fail it would start in the right front, of have some crackling sounds... I have seen CDM boxes totally fail alltogether, or just go dead flat or sound like static, some of that failure being the actuall tuner in the CDM box...

All I can say is that these head units are very touchy...


So here is the question... Are the newer style Delco stereos still very touchy, and do they suck as much as I have heard... ?

My ETR( with a CDM ) sounds good for stock, with pioneer speaker all around... Thw 95 has the 7 Band EQ, ETR CD stereo, it also sounds good with 3 way speakers all around...

And the Pioneer sounds good... I'll have to look at that link.. I helped a friend install a lower end Pioneer CD stereo in his car about 1.5 years ago... I have to say I was very impressed with the sound quality... His car came with ETR speaker, and the head unit made them sound that much better... we opted to keep the stock speakers... And they haven't blown up and still sound good...
