Default Replacing 8.4AN Uconnect Touchscreen?

Anyone know when/if it might be possible to replace the UConnect8.4AN radios?
I ask because I just recently had my door speakers replaced, some subs put in and amps on all of it along with a processor and after much messing with it i STILL have a hiss sound even when the radio is set at 0 (zero).

It's not an amp gain issue.. it does it with it all the way down. Have double checked grounds... not the issue. I'm being told it's most likely floor noise coming from the head unit to the processor.

SO I guess my questions are:

1.) Has anyone else experienced this with the 2013+ UConnect8.4AN when adding aftermarket mids/highs and an amp

2.) When might it be possible to swap out the UConnect for a head unit with cleaner output?

It almost just sounds muffled.. should be very crisp, clear and clean I would think... and I've tried 2 different amps and 2 different sets of mids/highs.. no change..

Thanks!!

P.S. Since I know someone will ask this is what I had installed:

2 sets JL ZR650-CSI components
4 JL 12W3v3 subs in a sealed box behind the rear seat
Audio Control LC7I Processor
2 JL JX1000/1 Amps (Subs)
1 JL HD600/4 Amp (ZR650's)

The other option you have is to wait for something like this to come out for the 2013s. This is not an LOC. Evidently, the signal from the HU to the stock amp is very intertwined with the CAN-bus system.

I did find this:

It says it requires one of their "Adbox" products as well but I'm not sure if it'll work with a 2013.. any idea?

Looking at the Ad box, it's purpose is to allow you to replace the radio, and interface the new radio with yourcar's digital systems (is chimes, turn signal, etc...).

Ok... I don't even need to replace the radio.. I just need a way to get a cleaner signal to my amps for mids/highs. It sound muffled and has a slight hiss that's always there but annoyingly audible low volume. It's not a ground issue and not gains being up too high.

So is there something better perhaps than the Audio Control LC7I processor I have that could fix that or would be waiting on a dash kit and such to be able to replace the radio be the best option?

Just get a cheap line output converter and use that to replace the LC7i. You may have a bad one and are inducing noise into your amps.
