I just bought a 17 JKU with the Alpine system. Sounds amazing and best stock system I think I have ever had...but between songs or when changing stations...if the volume is up over 20..you can hear feedback or like white noise though the speaks..not super loud but you can defiantly faintly hear it. It comes through all of them and I notice it changes when i stream audio from my BT or XM.

Streaming though phone has less feedback then when listening to stations on XM. Is this normal? My mom has the same model and the Alpine system so I am going to listen to hers to see if it does it as well.

Just wanted to see if anyone has come across this.

My '16 doesn't have the issue.

Any other electrical accessory mods/upgrades that may have upped the noise floor on your Jeep?

It's like a hissing right? And I noticed. It's only on the left side. It's not on my right side. Can you confirm this as well?

I will probably bring it up during my first oil change in another 4K to see if anything can be done...but since mine... yours and my mother's does it. I feel like most if not all 17s may have it.

Now I always listen for it. It sucks finding issues when you love cars lol

Anyone else notice this with the Alpine system? Got 2 other 17s with it... seeing if there is more. Sounds like a possible ground issue or the HU just sucks... which it does
