Vandersteen M5-HPB crossover and BC 200 Series Amplifier

Post by Ice Man » Tue Mar 11, 2014 8:33 pm

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone on the forum might have a similar setup (crossover to amplifer), and might offer suggestions:

I am using the crossover (latest version-- with AudioQuest Sky pigtail), Vandersteen 3A Sig speakers and a pair of Vandersteen 2wq subwoofers, along with a pair of monobloc BC 200 series amplifier.

My amplifiers have an input impedance around 200K ohms. However, whenever I set the crossovers over 75K, I get a buzzing sound from one of my speakers. At 75K ohms and below, everything is fine. When I disconnect the subs and crossovers from the system, everything is fine.

Is anyone using anything other than a Vandersteen crossover to connect to a Vandersteen sub?

Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions.

Issue resolved. Problem had nothing to do with either Blue Circle or Vandersteen equipment. Error was on my end, not the equipment.
