after picking up engine noise with my Pioneer 1695's I have been told to add in one of those inline filters to the stereo, can anyone tell me which wire it should be connected to in the back of the stereo.

Thanks

Allen,
Did you change your speakers only or also the head unit ? Hmmmmm.....I 've changed tons of speakers on all my past and present cars and never had any engine noise.Now if you changed the head unit,one reason could be a bad ground.
That's all I can think of right now. Anyone else ?

To answer your question, the yellow wire. That's main power to the head unit. But....

If you have JUST a factory head unit, you should take it back to the dealer; they should replace the radio and/or troubleshoot your problem. Just replacing speakers should not result in noise problems.

If you went aftermarket, may I ask what else you have installed besides speakers? Factory head unit with outboard amp? Just a new head unit? Aftermarket head unit and amp? What make/brand? My experience is that most problems are the result of ground loops.

If you want more help troubleshooting your noise problem here, I'm glad to help, just give me more info on your system.

shindog is right about ground loops. If you replaced the head unit and it sounds like you did or added an amp, all the electronics should have their ground wires tied to a single point on the frame. Better yet, tie them to the negative post on the battery. That might be a bit difficult but it's the best spot to avoid ignition noise.

Thanks guys for the info, I only have the stock head and 6 disc in-dash changer. The only piece I have changed is the speakers in the front!!
