My passive for the center channel is tucked up where the oem amp used to sit. There is the potential that it is picking up some noise as well.
I see. You don't have much real estate to work with. Perhaps that is not the best location for the MS-8...

Also, those two amps will generate quite a bit of heat and the MS-8 is sharing the same air space. You may want to keep an eye on temps.

And yes, the passives in the trunk could be picking up EMF.

It's not easy with our cars!
