What causes it. It started all the sudden an now is pretty loud.
that's a REALLYYYYYYYYYYY broad question. where is the noise coming from? What type of noise is it (tires,wind,engine,etc)? Did you change anything right before the noise started? etc etc etc....
Its a winding noise coming out of my speakers. The higher my rpm's are the louder the noise. Would a ground wire cause this?
That sounds like "Alternator Whine".....a buzzing in the speakers that increases with the RPMs of the engine.
Usually caused by a "ground loop".....it IS an electrical problem. What have you installed recently? My guess is either a new stereo, amp, etc.
The ground is probably at fault. You'll need to find a quieter spot on the frame to ground it, and "NO" the negative post of the battery is not a good place to ground your amp......(I'm quite serious about that!)
