    I have a carvin brx 10.4 neo cab that I'm running through a carvin r1000 head. There is this strange slight hum in the speakers when I strum it doesn't really sound like a broken speaker so idk even know where to start looking?

    May not be the amp or cab. How's the ground shielding in your bass? Using noisy pedals? Worth checking into.

    I think you've got it wired backwards. The head should be running through the cabs, not the cabs through the head.

    Sorry - couldn't resist.
