Well there are only a few reasons i can think of that just might be the reason behind said buzzing.

1. It may be connected to another power source ( amplified or powered supply ) or incorrectly connected. It may also be too close to said power supply.Try letting the dog (sub) out on his leash a little Drag out the manual that came with the sub, and check the correct procedure for your type of setup.
**People do read manuals still don't they ?**

2.The only other problem i have heard of is port noise in low registers. Keep the the port area clean, as it may suck up dirt, or even worse, small children!

3. However, if you're considering placing this subwoofer in a cabinet, I'd recommend allowing ample breathing room for the heat sink. This can also be done by drilling smaller holes in the cabinet ( 8-12 mm holes - with the owners permission of course) but please do remember to keep the port area clean.

4. The product ie: Velodyne DPS-12 Subwoofer, came with a bad power supply, presuming it is new, check your warranty.
(not very likely - see also scenarios 1, 2 or 3.)

Velodyne has been making subs forever and do it well.

The loud humming could be caused by a cable on the input that is not grounded. It could also be caused by some sort of power supply failure.

Iassume you mean you hear the buzz independently of the audio program - simply connecting the cable causes the buzz?

If tanything in the mix is powered from different AC sources you may have a different ground potential. Sometimes manipulating the orientation of one or more ac plugs will solve hum problems.

I have connected the subwoofer to the pre-amp out



One of two things may be going on.

The amp has a fuse mounted on the PC board. The fuse may be blown.

The speaker may be bad. that may have blown the fuse.

You can test the speaker with a "D" battery.
Take the amp section out of the back, disconnect the speaker leads.
Touch the speaker leads to the poles of the battery. it should make a little thump and the cone should move freely.

Contact Velodyne for service.
