Take off the bow jax and put on Cat whiskers. About every bow we have that comes through here with bow jax, they end up being the problem. Besides there is nothing on the market that I have used that quiets like whiskers. Also let someone else shoot the bow outdoors with you beside it that will give you an idea how loud it is.

You should also make sure the cams are timed correctly. That seems to be a major cause of noise.

there are several things to try, and since I don't know what you've adjusted, I'll give a quick run-down:

Make sure the TRG is set so that at rest the cables don't bottom out in the channels
Set the SOS so that it is barely touching the string
Some have taken a bit of sticky foam from weatherstripping and put it behind the SOS rubber piece
Make sure the cams are timed

Even after all that, I thought my Onza had a bit of a slap, but after hearing it from a short distance, I realized its pretty quiet.
