Question about JBL PRX612M 12 Inch Two Way Self Powered Monitor Speaker 1000 Watt Portable and Flyable
1000 Watts? Well, those are peak values. !000 watts RMS into a 12 inch speaker and it would smoke... this is some of our inflated advertising. But that is beside rhe point... now on to your problem: What you are having is a ground loop. You may have to do more than one thing to correct this here is the things to do in the order to do them to solve the problem:
1. Connect the piano and the speaker to the SAME power source or receptacle, even if you have to run an extension cord, three wire of course. Plug all of this ONLY into a grounded outlet, if your house has only two wire plugs, then you need to get an electrician to install a grounded receptacle.
2. Use Balanced lines. This means XLR or TRS balanced cables between the piano and the speaker. Use the 1/4 inch jacks output, not the RCA ones.
3. Since the AUX outputs do not support balanced lines, the next step require you use DI box. They are about $20 from Guitar Center and others. With very short 1/4 inch mono cable connect the piano to the DI box from the L/R mono piano to the high impedance input port of the DI and set the ground lift switch to "LIFT". Use an XLR to XLR cable from the DI box to the speaker. This last step if needed is the last thing in our bag of tricks to break the ground loop that can cause the buzz. Dirty power, if you have lamp dimmers can be a source of the noise.
