just did a 2006 dodge ram. did stealth box, pioneer flip out, alpines in the 4 doors, with a new alpine pdx5 five channel..... got horrid alernator whine... so far i have tried, new amp grounds, ground loop isolators, moving the rcas, moving the power wire, changing remote wire, moving the amp, any suggestions would be wonderous as it is very lound, quite possiblely the worst i have ever heard...who ever helps me figure this out case of beer on me :)

Ground the shield on RCA's at the deck. Ground deck to same point as amp.
Pioneer is notorious for having poor ground reference on the RCA....
Wherever I go, that is where I end up......

Thanks for suggestion idiot the grounding worked beautifully got rid of 80% of it. Now very barrable. Any other idea to completely eliminate noise would be great. I'll get u your crown :)

Where'd you get your switched power for the deck? An interface, or the lighter?
Try unplugging the radio antenna (the only other ground not at the same point as the deck ground)
