    As you know, an AC hum is a annoying sound produced by older appliances, especially radios.

    How would you translate AC hum into Spanish in as few words as possible.

    A longer translation would be: Zumbido causado por la corriente alterna.

    Thanks, and saludos.

    Just say "zumbido eléctrico". No need to specify the kind of current. I think...

    ¿zumbido CA?

    Lo digo porque CA = Corriente Alterna. ;)

    Por tanto, en español AC/DC = CA/CC :rolleyes::p

    Saludos
