If the noise goes away with the OEM speakers then the problem must be the crossover circuit.

Unplug the tweeters at least and see how this affects the noise.
I see where you are going with this. I can't try that right now, but may have sometime to take the door apart next weekend.

Meanwhile, I just replaced the HU with an ipod and Y RCA cable, the hissing noise is gone when not playing or paused. I think the problem is with the connection and feedback from the HU.
