SOURCE: Loud humming coming from subwoofer

This can be caused due to an increase in local interference. The hum is decreased when you plug in the satellites because the interference is spread over a longer area. You may notice that speakers tend to hum around things like cell phones and power outlets. To see if this is the case, move the speakers to another part of the room if you can, slide the desk around, plug the computer in at another room, something like this. If the hum gets louder or quieter, it is interference at your new place. This can be solved by finding a new area to set up your computer stuff at. Since it's mostly the subwoofer, try elevating it off the ground, there may be a power main running under the floor.

SOURCE: subwoofer problem

Sound like a component inside the sub is overheating. Most likely will need to be replaced.
Thanks,

SOURCE: Makes a loud humming sound and blows fuse behind controll panel

Most likely a shorted capacitor is causing the fuse to blow. Easy and cheap to fix.

SOURCE: Sunfire Mk II hum (different from greekboy post)

A reply to Soothsayer's request for clarification: My hum starts as a result of a loud, low-frequency "use" of the sub....but the hum does not seem to go away by itself, even hours later. I have not yet had the chance to access the sub's innards and try Dylan's suggested fix, but it gives me hope. I agree that Sunfire's repair fee seems excessive. Best of luck, let me know what you find?

Filter capacitors in the amplifier or a broken ground (shield) wire. Check if there is a ground lift switch in your system and try it in both on and lift positions.

Loud humming sound


Make sure that the input connection ground is good. If that does not cure the loud hum then you have a power supply issue.

If you are lucky, it only went in protection mode and after disconnecting the power for a little while and reconnecting things could come back. But if the system did not have an overload protection, a fuse can be blown, or worse the power supply or power amp can be blown to pieces. There is one thing semiconductors don't like is work over their limit.

I get a low hum from my speakers. How can I get rid of this?


Boston Acoustics Media Theater HUM. The problem may be the power source. Find another DC power source for the 12 volt. All I had was a 14.5 volt 4.5 amps source Model PS6 power source which fit the plugin socket. Absolutely no hum now and still great sound. However, I would recommend a DC 12 volt source with at least 3 amps output.
