Quick update to this post. I ended up installing a 4 channel ground loop isolator to quell some slight engine whine/feedback that I was hearing. Found one on eBay for like $15 or so, and ran the front/rear speaker RCA lines into it. The only other thing left that I have to figure out is how to stop the popping noise that comes from the speakers when I turn the car off. From what I gather, that popping noise happens because the head unit turns off faster than the amplifier does. Any suggestions?
