Sometimes my cat thinks there's an annoying hum coming from me when I'm busy doing something.

I have an Anthem MCA5, so there are 5 channels inside the one unit. I have tried 3 different pairs of RCA cables just to make sure that it isn't the cable itself that is causing the humm. The LFR1100 speakers are connected to the front and surrou

Bass traps in corners should be at least 4" thick and "straddle" the corner to give a good air gap, or be something that completely fills the corner from floor to ceiling. I went for the latter, because mine are hidden, but a nice f

Hi Matt, Can you describe exactly what your system consists of and how you have it hooked up to the LFRs/DSP? From what you are saying it sounds as if there is a ground loop issue in the connection of the DSP to your amplifier(s). The DSP box itself

You could build your own m22's if your handy. I built myself a set of bookshelves using Axiom drivers and they sound great. I call them M16's.

Bass waves are super long and they do some crazy things. The waves come back on themselves and can cancel each other. I am just beginning to study all this on the internet and using software to analyze the room so I know ( hopefully ) what is happeni

OK, that's very clear. And very weird. The part I really don't get is that it hums both with and without the power cord. It's easy to come up with explanations for one or the other but not both.

The hum is there when the DSP is connected to the Amp. It does not matter if it is turned on or off. Even unplugged with not power cord attached to the back of the unit, and completely disconnected from the pre-amp. I still get the humm. I did no
