New PSW505 extreme static

Just bought a PSW505 (yes I know it is an older model but it is new in the box). I followed all installation guidelines. As soon as I put power to it there was an extreme static sound. And when I say EXTREME I mean unusable. I adjusted EVERYTHING in an effort to stop the noise to no avail. I replaced a really old 150W Sony Sub hooked up exactly the same to the same equipment and never had the slightest hum, crackle, or static. PLEASE tell me someone has a solution! Thank you!!! Oh yea, it's LFE.

    Try using other inputs, different wall outlets, different settings, etc. Then, give Polk CS a call, they can get it sorted out for you.

    Main system: Technics SL3200, Shure M97xE, Lafayette LR1100 for tuner, Hagerman Audio Labs Bugle 2 phono stage, NAD C352 integrated, Boston Acoustics VR 2, Boston PV500, generic ICs, and BJC Belden speaker cables.

    Desktop: Dell Precision 690 running iTunes, Yamaha RX-v665, Monitor Audio R90s, Velodyne VA-907, generic ICs and speaker cables.
    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.
