Repetitive buzzing noise

Recently, my Basscube 12 subwoofer started making a repetitive buzzing noise. I would compare it to the sound you hear during the emergency broadcast system tests on the radio. It makes this sound when connected to the audio receiver and when disconnected from the audio receiver. What is causing this and how can it be fixed? Darren McNamara Bellingham, MA

    Oscillating buzz/hum, 1 sec or less per cycle, if unit is plugged into power, even if power switch is in the OFF position (of course disconnected from other equip).

    Unit had recently started making "pops" when auto mode turned it on or off after delay. I guess amp is shot.

I had the problem...Sent back to Cambridge Sound Works and they replaced the amp for a fixed fee. Unit has been fine since.

Some componet in the Amp circuit is breaking down. The longer you let this go, the more of a chance that you will have a major short and blow out several parts,m as thats what happens with amps. Get it service asap and dont use it.

I recently connected my satellite reciever to my

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.
