    Strata Mini sub connect via line level = hum

    Post  mobileusa on March 19th 2010, 9:09 am

    This was posted by a member on another site. Could someone help her out?

    This is what she wrote...

    #1 - I connected my amp L & R main outputs to the Mini speaker L/R binding posts.

    #2 - I connected my mono subwoofer out to each speaker using a t-adapter at the amp. Left speaker connected at Left low level input connecter only, and right at the right low level input.

    I noticed significant hum.

    I connected the left high level input to left high level output as instructed in the manual to eliminate hum. Still did not resolve hum.

    So I am back to the amp R/L connected to Mini speaker binding posts with the jumper cables going to the right high level inputs.

    Any other tricks for eliminating hum?

    Thanks!

    The Minis sound fine when connected using the speaker level inputs to the binding posts, I just wanted to see how they sounded using the line level inputs and my receiver handling the sub crossover.

    Okidoki,

    I just checked and that is exactly how mine is wired...speaker level inputs to binding posts. Smile

    I wouldn't try to change it.

    Hmm.. Okay. Hard to do though. Read that others found using the line level made improvements in the sound of the Mini in their environment. Just wanted to test for myself.

    Guess I have my answer. Line level sounds like crap in my environment. scratch
