James that comes to mind.
Isn't the term "tactile transducers" overuse of the English language?
Do you really need a second sub line & splitter? Splitters are often a problem source despite the integral purpose of avoiding just that. Why do such things need to be made as cheaply as possible when a lot of us would be glad to pay 5 bucks instead for one that actually works well?
A nasty little ground loop in there?
Okay you electrical geniuses out there. I've got a nasty hum problem here. If you can figure it out I'll owe you big time.
I have 6 tactile transducers. My receiver (a new Pioneer Elite) only has one sub pre out so I have a splitter. One line goes to the main sub and the other to the amps for the transducers. When I plug the sub into the receiver, everything is fine. But when I plug in the transducers I get a hum in ALL my speakers (yes, front, surrounds, etc).
Any time I have an amplifier plugged in (power on or off) and this second sub line plugged into that amplifier input, I get the hum. It doesn't even have to be the sub line. If I use a L or R front channel pre out, I get the same hum.
I've tried several high end amplifiers with identical results. The sound goes away when the amp is unplugged or this second output is unplugged from the receiver. I've also tried multiple cables going between the two.
Also note... I don't have the tactile transducers or speakers plugged into these amps. So it's not a fault at the speaker or in the line between the amp and the speaker. I have plugged the second amp into multiple outlets, with and without line conditioners with no change in results.
I'm stumped. I'm sure there are other things I can troubleshoot, but I don't know what they are. Anyone have any good ideas? If you do PLEASE toss em out. This thing is driving me CRAZY!
