    problem, but probably not a big one. check all your jacks and cables.
     
  3. Hi.

    Yep, a problem.

    You have to give us a bit more information though. An intermittent static sounds strange, are You sure that it's not just blanketed by the signal.

    First, is the static a low rumble 50 or 60 Hz AC frequency depending of where You live, or is it a tweeter hiss that dissapears when You turn the tweeter off (if any)?

    Regards

    it may be the signal because i heard a radio coming through it, but it wasnt noticable. its 60HZ-20kHz. its not the tweeter im sure.
     
  5. Hi.

    If it's anything like a radio static or radio signal, there's something in Your system that's acting like an antenna.

    PITA to diagnose and repair, but shielding sometimes works. Then again, a poor shielding can act like an antenna.
