 factory amp bypass or SOEM-4?

Hey all. So I have a 2007 Kia Sorento. Just installed a Pioneer AVH-X8500 head unit. looks and sounds amazing compared to the factory HU. So the only problem is that there is a slight static sound from the speakers when the stereo is on but muted or between songs and I can even hear it slightly through the music. I was told this is because of the factory amp. The guy at my local stereo store recommended the pac audio SOEM-4 to put in line with my speaker outputs from the deck to eliminate the noise. it initially helped slightly however when the engine is on I get really bad engine/alternator noise from the speakers and more static then before. I did not connect the grounds on each end of the adapter under the impression that this is only for common ground setups???? Im trying to figure out if I need to wire it up differently, use a different product, or just bypass the factory amp. I understand my HU may sound better without it. Problem is I have 6 speakers in my car. 2 back door, 2 front door, and 2 tweeters. How can I bypass the amp?? Do I need a crossover for front door speakers and tweeters?? Any help or opinions would be great Thanx
