Hi mate,
run the audio cables from the stereo down one side of the car

and the power cable down the opposite side this should stop the interfierence,

and earth the sub somewhere in the boot mate,

normally i would run the audio and remote cables down the driver side, and the passenger side for the power cable - mainly because the power cable comes through from the battery on that side.

once pasted in the post remove the
.img from either side of the link then its job done,

also check out DMB Graphics for Ford Badge Overlays and Decals Click Here

I used to have a 1.3 Starlet i kitted out with a load of fusion speakers lol had to build wooden rings like washers to raise the cone of the parcel shelve 6x9's so as the shelve would sit flush and up from the sub when closed

have you got another set of phono leads you can try it with? do you know if the ones you are using are shielded/screened?

If you can, get a set that is screened - it will reduce interference.

i have used a seatbelt mounting point in the past, worked a treat. you could also use the same earth as the rear lights, you will need to remove the plastic trim where the boot latch is to find it though.

haven't got any pics im afraid. Have you got any torx sockets? its about a T60 IIRC for the seatbelt mounting point. lift the back seat on the passenger side, and at the bottom of the belt you will see a big metal bracket where it anchors into the car. if you unscrew this and clean it up with a bit of sandpaper it makes a good earthing point, also you should be able to feed the cable under the plastic panel and into the boot without removing any trim.

hope this helps?
