I am having trouble with some electrical interference on my Subwoofer. I wired my electronic closet on a separate circuit, but my sub is plugged in to a different circuit. I am running it through a Panamax 5000 along with my TV. There is a noticeable noise coming through the sub and when I turn on a fluorescent light in a closet the sub thumps. I connected the sub to my receiver via CAT5 through the wall. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to easily rectify this issue?

Hi there.
It sounds like that old ground loop interference. You might find fitting some ferrite rings to the power cord end of the Sub and/or the lamp.

Would be easier to move the lamp away from the sub. Or choose a different kind of lighting other than flourecent.

The Light is a kids play closet and not a lamp. It is not moveable. I will look for some ferrite rings. Thanks

Ah OK, The rings shouldn't cost more than a few bucks.

I've, only this week, bought a pack of 4 from CPC, they only cost me £5.

The rings are unlikely to solve your issue. Your best off moving the power for the sub to a different location preferably the same outlet that your receiver is plugged into.
