Would my subwoofer benifit from being plugged into an Automatic Voltage Regulator ?
Only if the regulator didn't have a common ground connection between the input and output. Some do, some don't. There are good tools for fixing ground loops, but a voltage regulator isn't one of them.Quote:

No, not unless you have speaker hum from a ground loop issue. In that case plugging into a auto volt reg would fix the ground loop as a side affect..
Fortunately, for some reason or another ( my previous sub had one in the same location, although it was plugged into the AVR and this one isn't ... maybe that's the reason there is no ground loop hum.Quote:

Voltage regulation should almost never be used with high current draw devices, like amplifiers. They can do more harm than good.
At the present moment, I have my Marantz SR5007 and UD5007, along with the Samsung flat screen plugged into the one (1,200 watt) AVR and an Apple TV and one of my SVS SB2000s plugged into the other (1,200 watt) AVR.Quote:

I was assuming it was sufficient enough quality to handle the load and the specs of everything being plugged into it were well looked over and nothing was having its specs exceeded...... right TomC1315? You did do your homework first?
