I like to blame noise problems on RCAs, so either check all the connections there or other sources of interference such as the power wire running close to the RCAs.

Does the buzzing get louder when you turn up the volume, or is it just constant?

yea the noise does get louder as you crank it up, however its not as noticeable because of the fact that everything else is louder, so it just mingles in, just when its at a low listening level, say 1/3 or 1/2 volume, it just has this distortion hiss that buggs the **** out of me, especially listening to songs that have a clean guitar riff, thats when its the worse :(

hey i got a ground loop isolator, and it worked a bit, but another question, i have to split my rcas 3 times, i have one comming from the head unit, and then i split it so that i have 2 for my 4 channel amp and 1 for the sub, the question is: will the ground loop isolator be sufficiant to use before i split the rcas or do i need an individual ground loop isolator for each split i have created?
