Sub/amp problem

So my sub isn't hitting like it use to. When I try to adjust the bass and or gain it just makes a loud humming noise. The sub doesn't look bad, everything is hooked up right and I'm pretty sure I have a good ground. Is my amp bad? Any suggestions will help. Thanks in advance.

Sounds like some kind of grounding issue. Two prong or three prong plug? Have you added any gear lately to your system?

Does the humming go away if you disconnect the sub from the rest of the system? (only power plug plugged in)

It only does it when I fuck with the gain or bass on the amp. Just no good solid thump!
