Ground loop?

6 posts in this topic

Computer plugged into speakers + xbox plugged into same speakers which makes a buzz noise as soon as I turned speakers on and immediately turned off. Is that what a ground loop is? Would that cause any damage to anything from being on for a few seconds?

1 - Yes.

2 - Probably not as long as BOTH weren't turned on simultaneously. Connect only one Power Source to speakers at a time or insert an appropriate switching mechanism.

Both plugged into outlet but neither computer or xbox powered on. What would be damaged if both turned on, the speaker?

All kinds of stuff! Maybe even the PC/X-Box!

DON'T-DO-IT!!!

Connect the speakers to ONE SOURCE ONLY! Period! Did you not see #2 above?

Or go ahead and do it! Your hardware! ;) (Don't say you weren't warned...)

A switch box would be enough to isolate them. You can pick them up relatively cheap.
