Hi Ed, a couple years ago I lived in small house so my home theater systems 
(HTS) was installed in my radio room as well, I have also a Polkaudio subwoofer 
in my HTS, whenever I transmit I turned the sub ON and heard the hum on my 
voice peaks, I cured with some clamp ferrites on the signal cable (the one goes 
from the amp to the sub) did this first on the AC line with no difference at 
Hope this help.
Sergio, xe1ct.
