So you say if your change out your RCA cables the problem stops, then it comes back?  You have ground issues.  I suspect your amp and head unit ground are floating on different planes.  It is possible that the ground in the RCA cables is the culprit, but if so then it's really not the cable's fault, it's a HU problem.  When you disconnect and then reconnect I bet you are discharging the built up potential difference in your ground planes.  Try running a dedicated ground from both the amp AND the HU back to the battery ground just to see if the noise stops.  Also as a last resort try physically grounding the outer ring of the RCA cable to ground.  I bet it's a HU issue.

sounds like a faulty head unit to me. I mean lets just use logic here. If you went through a dozen sets of RCA's and RCA's rarley go bad, then mabye its not the RCA's. I guess there could be a whole shipment that was bad but then that would mean you would have had to get all the RCA's from one shippment. Like I said, I suspect the head unit
