that will happen with any stereo...the same thing would happen on your home stereo if you unplug a selected input with the audio cranked...touch the tip of a hot input and you'll get hum thru the speakers..unplug your PC speakers and you'll also get the same thing...in most pro audio there are set limiters to protect against damage, but not in your car....gotta turn it off, or down.
someone else said keep the volume on your ipod up, this is true to keep a good signal to noise ratio....not quite full blast, but close....it's a good idea to match it to the volume of your other sources, and then remember the mp3 player volume setting.
My stock 6-cd bose(clarion) is maxed out!....I keep 6 mp3 CDs loaded(in case I leave my ipod behind, = to about 60 CDs of music)...lifetime XM w/best of sirius sub, and a 160gb ipod classic (with approx 1500 CDs loaded at any time)Plan on upgrading the sub soon....the current wiring harness to the stock sub supports 10amps and the audio line is already active low pass..no need to run new wires...plan on wiring in a Molex connector so it's easily removed when I need room..I think a 100w amp and single 10" in a nice custom ported box should fit and work well
