I have an EP500 sub and last night out of nowhere the sub quit playing and went into a high pitched buzz.

I have heard the 60hz ground loop hum and this is alot higher pitched. I tried removing the chassis ground screw to no effect and i disconnected the input source. I even tried plugging it into 3 different outlets.

Anyone have any idea what this could be? I NEED my bass!!

Sounds like the demons that used to haunt my EP600 have migrated to your 500, that is good for me, sucks for you. \:\)

Like Eric mentioned, it probably would be best to contact Axiom...

hmmm, something is telling me that is like telling somebody to reboot their PC to resolve an issue. Let us know what happens.

Whenever I read the title to this thread 'ep500 scaring me', the first thought to cross my mind was 'Dayam boy ... that's a GOOD thing!'

Oh well, good luck with the 500 there soldier.

So i left it unplugged for about 36 hours and got the same result. Called brent at axiom today and let him listen to the sub through the phone. He immediately said that he'd send me a new amp.

So now on to more important things..Where do i get a muppet avatar? :P
