Qualified elericians please!, quibble thread


I have had this discussion before and it comes down to terminolgy ..


you can not have AC in the speaker system or it will hum ..

you have DC ....

say a guitar amp ... the string vibrates over a magnet .... cuasing the magnet to induce both neg and pos , = or -, north or south ... going to amp circuit ...causing the magnet in the speaker to move in and out depending on .. neg and pos , = or -, north or south ...x amount of distance producing sound ... and outputs X vdc + or - moving the speaker


no vibration = no sound

Hum = A/C bleeding in ... that nasty 60 hz hum


amps are/have a rectifier bridge in them ...giving DC to the circuitry ..


Yes the ( DC ) osolations are alternating ... but is it A/C Voltage ....LMAO !!

I use a non-contact tester frequently. In one house I noticed that every time I went upstairs and just put the tester NEAR the outlet boxes it went off. Normally I have to put it in the hot slot to make it beep. I eventually discovered that a prior owner had connected ground wires upstream to a hot brass screw on an outlet. This electrified the ground and the boxes.

I keep coming back because a good train wreck is hard not to look at.

If Greg's involved, I get out the popcorn, soda and wait for the show.

Excuse me? If I was involved, there would not be a problem, because I know how to properly troubleshoot and wire electrical circuits. You and your girlfriend Stickboy need to go back and sit in the corner, where you both belong.

The only reason I haven't blocked your posts is the entertainment value.

You are a post count junkie. You think this is your forum and everything you post is gospel. I have yet to read an apology from you for providing incorrect information or creating confusion.

Someone else said it. You like to hear yourself talk, hence the 1,000 word posts that don't say much.

I'm waiting for you to pull the "I'm being bullied by the sparkies" card.

Maybe as long as it does not involve understanding grounding.

Not jumping in anyone's camp Greg but you were wrong and failed to admit that the others were correct. Resorting to name calling is not the way to deal with it. It is also against the forum rules.
