Static in speakers while playing the radio

Yes I only get static in my speakers when Iím playing the radio stations, not cd's. So I assume itís something with my antenna connection not being good. I have taken the deck out and checked the antenna wire from the deck all the way to the actual antenna. I cannot figure out why Iím getting static even with a perfect single. I mean you can clearly make out the music but you hear a static sound in the background like its getting bad reception. I have tried multiple channels and itís all the same. If anyone could help me out so I could solve this problem that would be great.

Check the ground on the antenna. Most of the time they are grounded to the fender itself...but make sure. Try using a spare ground wire and and touch it to a separate ground to see if that works. If so, you found your problem.

Quick question...are you using a Pioneer head unit by chance?

Pioneers have a know problem with grounding/noise/static/engine noise.

I have the 5700DVD and its terrible on the radio..I also have a PSD and all the alternator noise comes through my speakers...so I am forced to keep the gains way low on the amp..but not on the subs. A REALLY good source for problem solving your issues can be found at www.the12volt.com lots of good threads there about noise with Pioneers.

Best of luck to you,
