Acura TLX Base i4 - After Market Audio Issues
Brand new to the boards here and I cannot for the life of me find answers to a couple of audio issues I am having after having 1300watt Amp plus two 12" subs, four 6.5 inch speakers, and a 6 channel amp installed. Additionally, they had to install a signal converter.
I also just wanted to document the problems I am having
and I will post the solutions if we find them since I am sure there are plenty of you out their who will or have run into these issue.
I am going back to the shop tomorrow where the installer will try and fix the issues. Here are some of the issues the audio shop can't figure out and I hoping someone can help here:
1. Speaker Hissing/White Noise
There is a constant hissing coming from my speakers even with the radio/audio powered off. The only way it stops is if the car is completely off, it is an aweful frequency and very fatiguing on the ears. I am reading that it may be a grounding problem or an issue with the factory amp (which has been compelety bypassed on my case) but haven't seen or read anything definitive.
There are two ANC microphones that need to be disconnected or a terrible humming will come from the subwoofer. The installer was easily able to disconnect the rear ANC microphone no problem. The front ANC microphones wiring is bundled together with the Bluetooth microphones wiring meaning if you unplug the whole wiring bundle you will get disconnect ANC and the Bluetooth microphone. I have read that you can turn off ANC through the settings but it will revert every time your turn your car back on. I am being told that one of the wires is will need to cut from the front bundle but they are not sure which wire it is.
Has anyone else run into any of these issues or have any ideas?
Thanks in advance everyone
