you should never directly hear a sub

Even watching live local news, I can hear it pumping in the background. It sounds like wind noise from a Mic if you are familiar with that? I'm attaching my ARC file again for brave souls that trust me
A few thoughts:
If it is a huffing kind of noise, that suggests the sub is being over driven or clipped. Gains could be too high somewhere
If it is a rumbling sound, that can be caused by noise on the input line e.g. from crossed wires. I had a bad RCA connection that did this once.
If it is a ported sub, the port could be partially blocked.
