    I have just bought these and sound great except that in a quiet room (worse still a silent room) the transformer of the sub hums. Once you hear it you can hear it all the time.

    Does anyone elses do this? You can even feel the back casing of the unit vibranting slightly.

    Thinking about having it checked. Any feedback?

    Thanks

    Mine are O.K., but the transformer does hum a slight amount. Never bothered me it really is very very low.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with it, it's just that it's a cheap transformer.

    ive had the fx5.1s for about a month now and i havnt noticed any hum. i think they do sound a bit tinny but otherwise great speakers for the price.
    anybody know of a good centre speaker to match with them as i dont like the sat as the centre. is it ok to run an 8ohm centre with these 6ohm speakers ?
