In my experience, alternator whine is related to poor grounds rather than some kind of induced noise. What's odd is that the factory system even had a little noise in it too. It's not unbearable right now.
In my experience, with the same amps and same processor, if you have RCA plugs in the vicinity of ground wires, you WILL have induced noise.
How close are we talking?
No closer than the connections are at the amp. In other words, don't run the ground wire to the left past the RCA connectors, rather to the right or straight out.
