- Have you tested all of your audio cables with a VOM to make sure they are OK (no crossed or shorted pins, etc.)? Are you using all XLR? There is little front page information on the mini site showing factory or required custom cabling, some details are needed.
- Do you get noise from both amps/subs individually when either one is completely removed from the audio chain?
- Do you have the means to power the mini with a battery for testing?
- As a last resort is warranty service an option?
Thanks, zhillsguy. Great questions. I was thinking there were no answers to my dilemma despite the amazing mind meld we have here on the forum.
1. miniDSP is being used strictly for subwoofers.
2. The amps are connected to miniDSP via four separate, balanced XLR cables. Two outputs from DSP to two inputs of each amp. Dip switches for both amps are identical and are:
clip limit off (left), 30Hz (right), LC off (right), stereo (left and left), bridge off (left and left), LC off (right), 30Hz (right), clip limit off (left).
3. Did not test audio cables with a VOM (???). All XLR feeding DSP and as I stated, exiting DSP.
4. I can remove each amp (or or sub pairs) from chain and still get noise from what remains.
5. I will try powering mini with battery and report back.
6. Will try to test wires and use battery...and pursue warranty if needed.
