    A friend of mine loaned me an SVS jam subwoofer to try in my system. I am currently using a Yamaha RXV-2095 receiver with NHT Super Ones across the three front channels, NHT Super Zeroes on the front effects and surround channels and a passive Radio Shack 12" subwoofer powered by an Hafler DH-220 amplifier. I have tried connecting the SVS sub directly to my sub woofer output port and with a splitter to use in tandem with the radio shack sub.
    When the SVS sub is connected I get a low level hum and a buzzing sound that can be heard through the three front channel speakers. Does anyone know how I can get rid of the hum and buzzing sounds?

    What do you have the SVS plugged into? It does this even when the SVS is the only thing hooked to the sub pre-out?

    What is a SVS "Jam"? Never heard of it.

    Something to compliment the SVS Powered Box line perhaps. [​IMG]

    At any rate, remove the splitter and the Radio Shack sub. Let the SVS run solo and see if it's still a problem.

    Why run an SVS with an RS sub anyway?

    SVS subs can stand up for themselves.[​IMG]

    Does it make the same noise without the splitter and the RS sub connected?

    Jam? [​IMG]

    Hi Dan,

    As others have asked, which SVS model do you have?

    Maybe he's spilled jam onto the subwoofer, and the subs going "mmmmmmmm" - that's nice jam! :-D
