hellu!
ok just bought this fbq2496..
and have been :reading: about the hum issues....
how loud is the hum, if someone still have that issue?..is it clearly heard ?
i have a very low humming noise coming out from sub...when i really listen after hum...
and now that i know that the hum is there it annoys me..:wits-end:
i already tried to shift power from an grounded outlet vs a non-grounded one..no difference...

but when i pull the rca coming from receiver..the hum is gone...
have any of you tried or/ whould something like this be helpful:

So you have RCA out at the receiver and XLR in at the BFD. Can you tell us the configuration of the cable you're using?

I would remove the pin-1 to pin-3 bridge, leaving pin-1 open.

Well, that indicates the noise is resident on the signal line and it's not a ground loop issue with the FBQ. This is backed up by the fact that an ungrounded outlet didn't clear the problem.

This would also indicate that the problem would still exist if you removed the FBQ and connected directly from the reciever to the sub.

Is that true?

I can't seem to find it now but how many filters have you got in place...........if there has been two many filters being used apparently it results in a very high gain and there for hum or hissing noises as a result.
haven't gotten that far yet in my calibrations..:bigsmile:
so the answer is: i use 0 filters.... :)
