Engine Noise Question

i am getting that damn engine noise.
i am using as fat and as insulated RCA leads as i can find.
and its coming through loud and clear when i start the car.
i have checked all wiring and everything is grounded well.
one thing i have noticed though when i have attached the positive cable to the terminal on the batter, i used a gold connector and it gets about 3cm from the alternator, would this be a possible cause for some hell loud engine noise ???
or any other tips would be handy !!!!

What's your aerial like? Mine is shitful at reception. I have heaps of static and poor reception even in town! I am thinking possibly aerial not grounded properly. I will get a new elec aerial one day to try and fix this problem and hopefully the f**king engine noise goes away. I will let everyone know if it's a fix, but that proly wont b for a while! Just a suggestion......

Yeah, mine does that. I will replace it one day, but at the moment don't have the $100 or so for a new one! If you replace it before me, let me know if it makes a difference ok?

I have thought about them, as my RCA's are really cheap dodgy things! But I need a new aerial anyway, so i'll get that first and see what difference that makes.
Thanks for letting me know how you fixed it....
