If I can ask... what did you use for measurement gear?
And again I suggest that 60Hz "hum" is usually indicative of ground/power issues. Sensitivity of the sub is not part of the equation. Hum at -10, 0 or +10 is still a 60Hz hum. Also... as I alluded, by your insertion of a "light pipe", you eliminated one of the potential culprits.
