The remote out would stay on for about a minute after car was off sometimes my amp would get interference and the sub would start going off with a loud bass note due to this unit.
It also has alternator whine noises. The instructions could be better they were not clear enough for me on the wiring of the black wire i guess for ground loop noise???? I replaced this with a cheaper xscorpion unit that is passive not active like this one and the alternator noise was reduces

I have an issue with the RCA cables carrying the signal for my front channels. Both left and right channel had their own problem with noises on the amp. This device completely removed the noise from the left channel, but somehow made it worse on the right channel. So I have the left channel into this device and right channel directly into the amp.
It might be a hit or miss product, but for the price and with the return policy I recommend it.

March 14, 2010 Doesn't come with schematic instructions

Unfortunately the packaging didn't include schematic installation instructions for the recommended configurations. It seems simple enough but without a schematic I can't be sure. Anyway, I hooked it up as advised in my 2003 Ford Windstar but it did not remedy the noise problem. Perhaps this is due because the short pigtail of the filter plugs into the head unit, still requiring using the same, long patch cables. Because those patch cables connect to the amp after the filter there may still be an opportunity for picking up noise in the patch cables. Using shielded cables did not help so perhaps the signal noise is occurring elsewhere.

Next I will use adapters to plug the filter in just before the input of the amp to see if that helps. Still, the small price makes it worth trying. I am not an electrical engineer but happily, as I get older my high pitch hearing is worsening and so the problem is not as apparent as it was at first.
