Sub issues, audio gurus i need help

I have an infinity Basslink installed in my 6gen av6. Here's how it's wired. The power wire/Ground/speaker tap wires and I have the bass control knob. The speaker tap wires came with the basslink, so i just tapped my rear speakers.

Now the problem: Whenever I'm breaking my sub goes BRRRRRPPPT BRRRPPT...even when the music's not on. This does not happen when I turn off the bass with the basscontrol knob so I don't know what's going on its very irritating because it happens when the music's playing. Just random bass everytime I break. What the hell's going on??

where did you ground to? Is it a solid grounding point?

kinda hard to explain. I dont think its a solid grounding point, it's a 4gauge wire I stripped it and then somehow coiled it around a bolt and bolted it down where the Jack goes. That's the only bare metal i could find in my trunk.

dont use the crappy tapper things first of all...make a proper connection wrapping the wires together and using solder/shrink wrap.

second, where are the wires run? third, where is the ground terminated to? fourth, is the ground solid, to bare metal?

disconnect the wires to the speakers (dont let them touch each other or the chassis!) and see of the sound goes away. wait, did you run a separate remote turn-on wire? if not, youd have to find a way to turn the amp on...

edit: while talking on the phone, you replied lol. yeah, i definitely suspect your ground is the cause especially if youre using the bolt i think you are. there are other bolts in the trunk...if you move the box or wiring closer to the the seats, there is a nice bolt next to the fuel pump it just takes 1 minute with some sandpaper to make it nekkid and pleeeeease get a ring terminal before bolting the wire down
