    Anyone know why I get alot of engine noise while my stereo is on. The higher the rpms the louder the noise through my stereo system. Bad ground???? While your answering that question. I want to know what the most inexpensive decent speaker system to set up in the k5 would be. I definately want speakers that can handle alot of watts and bass. I have 2 amps and an equalizer with a fairly decent Alpine CD reciever and 6 disc Sony CD changer. Need to compliment this system with some speakers tha can handle the power without blowing out in the 1st 6months. I know absolutely nothing more than to turn the volume up to My Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin collection. So any input is valuable and always appreciated.
    Thanks
    James

    I recently ordered 2 pair of jbl

    speakers from a website called www.spidergear.com ... Great price (at least I think) 8 in 3 way speakers for $49 a pair think I bought the last 4 they had... But they had a bunch of other speakers... Good luck

    Stay away from any 3way speakers that cost 49 bucks[​IMG] Rockford, Clarion, Alpine, MTX, Eclipse all make QUALITY spkrs in the 99 dollar range. As far as motor nois goes, I dont feel like going through all that again, takes too long. Do a search, I posted a way to try to pinpoint it not tha long ago. If you cant find it, let me know and I will help ya, (when Im not so tired[​IMG])

    are your amp power wires and speaker wires running on the same or opposite sides of your truck? if they are on the same side it can translate into feedback as your RPM's increase. If they are on opposite sides then maybe your amp power wires are not a heavy enough gauge to handle the power. otherwise, it could be faulty speakers.

    Sounds like you have the basis for a good system, don't ruin it by buying cheap speakers. Do it right once. Listen to DBLAZER, he won't steer you wrong.

    That happened when I had an amp wire on the same side as everything else. I rewired it away from everything and it fixed it.
