    [​IMG] [​IMG] Only had this for about a month, i was playing a song at medium volume and i turned it off to leave and i hear this humming noise. so i go over to the sub turn it off then on again and its still humming. [​IMG] [​IMG] Disconnected everything turned the volume of the sub all the way down and same hum. unpluged it and pluged it back in and it makes a couple small pops and is humming...Is the amp blown? or is it the sub itself?

    Most likely, your sub is picking up a ground loop. Use a 3-prong to 2-prong adaptor on the sub's power cord. If this DOESN'T work, let us know...
