There’s a annoy hiss present during my workflow & I don’t know what the problem could but I know they aren’t angled right but they are all on the same electrical grid (could it be the rca’s?)

Most likely the RCA's, yeah. I use rokit 5, with balanced TRS (actually it's RCA from SP to TRS into mixer, and then balanced TRS output from the mixer to rokits) - there's no audible hiss, BUT, since the SP's output is not balanced, that only solves a part of the problem..
I would really, really like to see more than RCA's output on some next SP version... Even more than proper pitch :D

Try to find RCA to TRS cables, if you're using RCA to RCA, but not the cheapest ones - it will most likely help

I do the same. TRS from mixer to rockit 5’s. I love those speakers man... they’re good for small spaces.

Yo LM... elaborate on the downside of the RCA output if u don’t mind. Is it a sound quality issue?

Well, in theory - balanced cables (like XLR) transfer sound signals over much longer distances without signal loss, or interference. They have a very low signal to noise ratio, (though this is definitely determined by the quality of the cable itself, so for any 'outputing' I'd always go for more expensive ones) so will often give you a much better sound. Now, this is usually true with longer cables (which most of us generally don't even use), but...kinda like to be on the safer side... I'm always packing couple of XLRs and TRS balanced, just in case :)

Btw sound engineers LOVE that shit :D literally just had a gig, I'm sitting in the backstage rn (and lurking on SP FORUM fuck that's sick haha) - you should've seen the look on the sound guy's face when he saw that I'm sporting balanced cables. Oh that relief haha priceless
