    And you've swapped this gear between rooms?

    The problem stays with the room or follows the gear?

    Who do you call to get your wiring tested. Ghostbusters?

    I sure hope you tried swapping gear before ordering that. And, if it stays with the room, get an electrician to check it before some bandaid.

    I can send you a video of you want to provide email address in pm. It's bizarre.

    Yes what? You swapped all the suspect gear between rooms and the problem stays in the room?

    If you have a haunted house, I guess you could call Ghostbusters. Otherwise, I'd be calling an electrician...! If it's not an amp issue, and it is a wiring issue, all the electrical devices in your house might be damaged from whatever is happening, and not just a stereo system.

    i can't imagine that it's the house wiring. There's not much that go wrong with that, without having all sorts of issues. There's only 3 wires, the hot, neutral and ground.

    Nope.

    What we really want to know is there DC voltage on the amp that is currently doing this. This is where you want to start. IMO, you're wasting time and $$ calling an electrician for this issue.

    The OP seems to say gear in other rooms is not affected. It would be really helpful if there was clear answer to the question about swapping gear in post 23, 27, and 30.

    When the OP mentions old wiring with a new panel, it just made me curious if everything was rewired correctly? I was in a house once, where if you touched the stove and refrigerator at the same time, it would almost electrocute you! Not fun.

    So if you move the Sony integrated and all the attached gear in that system to one of the other rooms, the strange woofer movement totally stops?

    Behind you.
    Does it the woofer movement occur when the amplifier is turned off?
