Question about Audio Players & Recorders
There is a constant loud buzzing when I turn my subwoofer on (regardless of whether there is anything playing). Any thoughts on how to fix it?
If it's not interference or a ground problem it might be a bad amp. I have the same sub and not only did I have the buzzing, but also a noticable "whacking" sound instead of smooth bass. I found an online seller who at the time just happened to have obtained some surplus Cerwin Vega amps that fit perfectly. Paid $60 shipped. Problem solved.

Generally, a buzz from your sound equipment indicates some sort of nearby EMI. The normal culprits and.or possible fixes that I've found are:
- Remove any other electronic devices plugged into the same outlet as your subwoofer
- If the woofer is on a power strip/surge protector, remove it and plug directly into the wall
- If there are any nearby wireless devices (cordless phiones, WiFi eqiupment), disconnect/power down them
- Try connecting different speaker wire between the woofer & the receiver
- Try turning off all other eletronic equipment with the exception of your receiver
Let me know if any of these help and good luck!

I also had a problem with buzzing on my eltax atomic a8 weather the amp was switched on or off.
i followed many solutions and the one that worked was isolating the earth pin on the plug.
now not even a hum

There is too much electrical feed back coming from your earth, you can install a line level filter, or get an electrician to do it. Or you can remove the earth pin on your subwoffer.
I have done this to many subwoffers and it worked every single time.
