Get RCA to 3.5mm wire. Plug the RCAs into the amp, and the 3.5 into your phone. Play audio and check for noise. This will help pinpoint the problem as either after the amp, or between the amp and head unit.
I swear I have that cable somewhere in my house, but I couldn't spend too long looking. I did, however, disconnect the RCA inputs to the DSR1 individually and the clicking went away with left front disconnected.

I'll have to see what happens when I plug in another source

Sounds like a grounding issue for sure. The sound is likely from the relay for theat clicking over. If you are running 0g wire for the amps, my first question is did you also upgrade the OEM battery ground to 0g? (I may have missed that). If it's the OEM wire it's probably no bigger than 6g and likely has a insufficient ground even though you're at the battery.

I hope that helps!
