outside if it's disconnected.
It measures 16 ohm on one side and 52 ohm on the other one. I got one new inside a kit I still didn't built and measures the same. I'm going nuts with this f**king hpf on signal..

Are you sure you don't have a cable connection out of phase?

Did you remove the input?  Can you put the one from your other kit in and see if it fixes the issue?

The cable seems ok visibly (you obviously mean the long black one inside the compressor, right?). I would try the other input trafo. Could it be something related to output trafo?

No I mean your XLR in and out and patchbay  if you're using one.

Seems like your issue was happening around the input.  Try the other input you have then report back. Make sure the output is wired correctly.

Again bad transformers are VERY rare, almost never the causing the issue.  But possible, and many years ago I had a customer with this issue and it ended up being the input.

Nope, the XLR cable is the same I used every time. And I tried it again with another REV. A and it works OK. The output trafo is wired ok too. I will report back after swapping the input transformer.
