    Can any one help?

    I've just installed a set of Keff Eggs & I am having problems with the subwoofer.

    Everything else works fine apart from the sub.

    I've got a Sony DB1080 Amp & have connected using a RCA to RCA twisted cable. I've connected it to the left line in socket on the amp. Should I have a cable with two line in connectors?

    The sub just makes a strange noise through the speaker!

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Brian

    Should you not have connected the sub to the LFE out on the amp rather than the line in?

    I have got mine on a splitter cable that goes to the L and R in on the sub. I don't know if that is necessary or makes a difference, but it works for me.

    Have the same problem the the 'egg' subwoofer. I have just connected to a Sony 1070 using an Ixos sub cable and suffer from what sounds a mains hum through the sub.
    The outer phono connection on the sub does not appear to be earthed as sparks fly when connecting the sub cable. Hum goes when cable is pressed against the 'base' plate of the sub.
