Induced current in RCA cables

Padawan Posts: 60 Join Date: 9/7/09 Recent Posts
If you have both the RCA and mains cable in one cable sleeve, say for about one meter in lenght there will be some induced current running in the RCA cable, in my case 50VAC measuring between earth/ground and the speaker case (6010B).

I know it's never a good idea to run these cables alongside eachother but in my case it was the best looking solution.

My question is, can or will this damage the speakers?

In general, this kind of cabling is quite common and can easily result with audible hum or other interference. Normally this does not damage the loudspeaker and Genelec products have been designed to be very robust and reliable also in this aspect.
