Default Need some n00bie HT help

So my roommate brought his Pioneer VSX-818V and a couple towers from home to hook up in our living room. Hooked that all up fine and dandy..well this past weekend he brought his Sony SA-W2500 Active sub. I hooked the power up and ran a RCA from the sub to the preout on the receiver and it plays a constant tone..somewhat like a constant 35hz tone...and doesn't stop unless I unplug the RCA. ANY ideas?

I'd guess rca or bad ground on the outlet you plugged into. Possibly getting more like a 60hz tone from the outlet? Could also be that the preout is putting out the wrong voltage forthe sub, or a bad signal, or the powered sub could have something wrong with the board..

Switched RCA and still did it. It doesn't make a good connection in the socket either so Im sure that isn't helping the problem. Probably something wrong with the board I suppose

Mine does the same thing IF there's no music already playing. Mine sounds like a 60hz tone which could be bad ground idk. But if I play even the slightest music it completely stops the tone.

I know it's no solution but maybe help you I some way lol

Edit: it does it if the device isn't sending a signal to it at the time
Example: if my laptop is plugged into it and the laptop goes to sleep it will start buzzing so I would imagine RCA related
