Customer Question
I have a PSW...

I have a PSW Subwoofer that when plugged into every outlet hums. What do you suggest to fix this problem and also what do you recommend?

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your speaker or sound system?

I'm connecting this to a Yamaha sound bar (front surround system connected to my digital Widescreen TV.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Yamaha system?

I have not even connected the subwoofer yet to anything because it hums when I plug it in.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

The soundbar has built in sub woofers which I'm not sure if this will be a problem when connected.Thanks
