    Hi Guys

    Just wondering if you could help me on something I've noticed today. I placed my ear against one of the front speakers and noticed a buzzing sound coming from it. Tried the other 4 speakers and all had the strange buzzing sound.

    Did a few tests and found that it is the Kef subwoofer that is causing the buzzing. The method of deduction is as follows:

    1. Removed the subwoofer cable from amp - no buzz
    2. Changed the power cable on sub and connected back to amp - buzz
    3. Plugged power cable into totally different socket across the room - buzz
    4. Turned off subwoofer at the back with power cable still attached - buzz
    5. Pulled power cable out of sub - no buzz

    Can anyone point me in the right direction to sort the buzzing out. Is my sub-woofer knackered?

    Input level on sub is halfway
    Crossover is set to 120
    phase is all the way to the right
    Connected to amp via 5 m Ixos sub cable via low level input


    Cheers

    Have you tried a different sub cable from the amp? Or rerouting the current cable away from mains leads etc.

    Yep, changed the subwoofer cable between amp and sub, also moved the sub into the middle of the lounge away from power cables near tv.

    Still buzzing from the speakers. The only time the speakers don't buzz is if I pull the power lead out from the subwoofer. Do you think it warrants calling Kef to hear what they have to say?
