Default Buzz Noise on outputs with inputs attached

I have a noise problem on my parelleled 4780 amp. I have a lot of noise coming out the outputs. I hooked up the outputs to my scope and it looks like a half sine wave ~ 60hz, then 0 v then another half sine wave in the other direction. There is a gap of about 2 periods between these half sine waves. Does anyone know what is causing this?

Have you checked youir supply voltage? Is it "DC" or something else".

What happens if you shorten your input? Have the two channels the same behavior?

Yah, both channels have the same behaviour (both use the same tranny and rectifier), the noise doesn't change when I short the inputs?

Thanks for the help. I checked out the 2 supply voltages on the scope and they seem pretty bad. (looks like lines going up and down like ^^^^^^. )

I'm currently using a 400VA toroidal transformer with dual secondary 21V outs. The 2 coils are attached together to form the ground, while the other 2 wires are rectified using 4 MUR860 diodes.

Would it be better to leave the 2 coils seperated and rectify them individually using 8 diodes?

I have 17600uF total between 2 parelleled LM4780s. Is this enough?
