Default Static from Tweeters? WHY?

Hey guys, so I've installed 2 pair of hertz components in my car.

When I mute the volume or turn it all the way to 0, I hear a static noise coming from the tweeters in my rear doors. I don't hear it in the front at all.

The rear tweeters are wired with 16 gauge while the front are wired with 18 gauge.

Is the 16 gauge the reason for the static-like noise? Or are the tweeters blown? When I crank the volume the music sort of drowns the static out, but it's still there none-the-less.

Thank you for the help!

Can you please be more specific? What type of engine noise? Of course I hear noise from the engine when it's on.

do you hear an increasing whine as you rev the engine? coming from the components. and your tweeters will most likely be producing the sound due to having a crossover point in which the high frequency of the engine whine will only play through them.

No, I do not hear an increasing while revving. It is a constant whine/static noise. Whether the volume is at zero, or maxed out and muted, I hear the same pitched noise. I've checked the rca's and ground. I don't know what the deal-eo is!

Classic ground loop...

Check all your ground connections for being secure, appropriate gauge wire, clean contacts, etc...

As a precaution, remove signal wires from near by current wires... Not sure of the validity of this, as your whole vehicle is a ground, but worth a shot.

Ground your headunit independently, grounding through the factory harness is notorious for creating noise.

Don't ground to any zink plated factory bolts.. ie seatbelt bolts.

Isolate components to see where. The potential problem is, are the offending tweets on their own amp..

Lot of trouble shooting you can do...
