I may try a line conditioner from Bluejeans ( www.amazon.com/Transformer-Eliminator-Bl...-Cable/dp/B00GG1PK5W )or Rolls to see if that alleviates the problem before reopening the beasts. I'm going to first try the Rolls HE18 ( www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/380761-RE...F_HE18_Buzz_Off.html ) because I have two subs, so it'll be significantly cheaper (and I don't use a y connector at the moment, because I have two sub outs on a Denon with SubEq). If that does the trick, I'll be pretty satisfied. I'll report back with the results!

Yes, exactly the point, the forces inside the sealed SuperSub XXL are like a jackhammer.

Ok, I wanted to give a quick update on my "hum" or buzz problem with my two subwoofers. I ended up giving the Rolls HE18 - Buzz Off a try (see www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/380761-RE...&lsft=BI%3A514&smp=Y ). I picked the Rolls over the Blue Jeans option (mentioned in a post, above), because one unit can handle two channels (and I have two subwoofers using two sep channels in my Denon--not Y connected).

Works like a charm! It completely eliminated the hum (which both subs emitted). I'm sure it is cable management problems/electrical problems from the townhouse, given the fact that both subs behaved identically. So, hopefully, if someone else comes across this problem (which is evidently pretty common with a sub, regardless of brand), know that it at least solved my problem with my SSXL's. Got it for only 39 bucks!
