Stereo distortion

Why does my stereo sound distorted only when I'm giving the car gas? Something to do with the alternator ? I don't know it's weird .ground is good and the power source is good. Sounds fine when the car is off too.maybe the deck is just a peice of crap pioneer .started this recently. Click image for larger version

It is called a suppression capacitor and it is located on the alternator.
