    I just installed the new Monster Power 5000 and it has a slight hum. Is that normal? It is barely noticable but there. Anyone else experience this? Thanks, Jeff

    The unit itself hums? or your system does?
    I have the HTS-5k too, and not only does it not hum, but it stopped my ground loop hum.

    Then return it, I'm not sure why there's this huge question. It shouldn't make any noise unless you're turning it on and the solenoids are clicking on(the switched section).

    I'd take it back ASAP and see if you can't get one without a hum. It could be a sticking solenoid, OR< and this worries me, a chassis ground problem making the unit hum(IE-a problem with internal devices that might not protect the equipment).
