Hi I got my setup recently: Pio HU, Sony amp, JBL 607c & GTO 937, monster cabling. I get a similar problem, when I turn up the volume, the hiss increases - even if it is a CD that's playing and if its in pause.

I doubt its the wires, because with the volume increased, the hiss increases - so its perhaps coming straight from the HU.

What could possibly cause this?

Perhaps LBM could give us the technical angle to this.

check HU (if it is generating hiss) by not using the amp and connecting the HU direct to speakers (this can be done easily for the rear speakers if the amp is in the trunk.

check wires from HU to amp.

check Amp. a low level hiss is being generated somewhere and the amp is amplifying it.

I saw an install in which the power and signal(speaker?) wires were running on one side of the car, entwined with each other like lovers, Will this cause problems like hum and wine.
The power lines were going to amp, and the signal wires also going from HU to amp.
If adequate shielding is used on power lines will it take care of interference like this?

Sorry i forgot to mark it. It am talking about the capacitor soldered to the terminals of the speaker as i have never seen it before. The Capacitor is soldered on to the terminal only and no other wires are present.

with such a beautiful word in your post I wonder why Sam has not replied as yet..

power cables are better left away from all other cables. But if there has to be a choice it is better that they be close to speaker cables than RCA wire.
