11-02-2002, 11:05 PM
I just installed my new LSiC and love it..... But......... when It is played at reference Levels it Makes the Tv Flicker And Distort Color... What is up with it??? When you turn it down the tv clears up.

Welcome to the Forum, figured you'd end up here eventually!
What kind of TV do you have the LsiC setup on?

They send out a new crossover, just FYI. Takes about 10 min to switch out.

Just curious, I owned the LSiC also, had not notice the problem you were indicating, I have the Elite PRO-HD520 HDTV, and currently the LSiC doesn't sit on top of the monitor, but might be in the near future....Is this problem identified as affecting "most" monitor, or specific to a brand? Who did you talk to at Polk to get the replacement crossover? Thanks for your help...fh

Well, mine is a traditional tube TV, it sounds like your is a projection so more than likely it won't have the same problem.
Check this thread for the fix and a message from Ken:

How close to the HDTV is the LSic ? It may be your speaker is causing magnetic interferance with the TV. I know this isn't supposed to happen but I can't think of anything else that matches your symptoms. When operating the speaker at high levels your are creating a pulsing magnetic field. Also make sure the speaker wire to the LSIC is as isolated from the TV as possible. Don't have it tangled up with the power cord, the antenna or the cable connection. The fact that the problem goes and comes with the volume is the key fact here. You may need a ground isolator. The First thing I woud do is move the the speaker away from the TV and test the results of increased volume again. If the problem disappears then relocate the speaker further from the TV.

It's already been solved. The crossover fixes it.
