Multiple RCAs won't cause any issues, they are just signal outs, but if you do get a new head unit, that would be a simple way to tell if you have RF interference or RCA noise.
so what you're saying is to do what picture number one is in that link?
(you may not know the answers to the following because thats not your thread)
why are they grounded at 2 spots? Just to tighten the wire so it doesn't move?
i also noticed the left side is almost grounded to like, the box, whereas the right is more the frame of it. Does that location matter?

THEN after that you're saying to take the location that i grounded the RCAs at(or anywhere on the case) and ground that point at the frame. Would grounding that at the battery work?

And later on that site is says they're pico fuses, correct? So basically unless i want to rip apart my stereo and do some soldering, those fuses are not going to be replaced. So grounding the RCAs would be the best option.
