Cell phone static on Roland MA-8 speakers

I am greatly annoyed by the very loud static type noise from my speakers whenever someone in the area turns on a cell phone.
I am using them as speakers for my computer. The sound is awesome but so is the static. I know the static is from a cell phone because it happens when I turn my cell phone on.
It is a di-di-di type noise.

Is there a way to ground the speakers? or maybe put a filter somewhere or maybe sheild the cables? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

As for ? 1. The brackets will be strong enough to hold the speakers up. ? 2. If you attach the brackets towards the top of the speaker you will not hit the amp inside. Sense you are using just half inch screws you are safe. I would use the #6 screws.

Good Luck and please accept the answer

My Logitech x540s suddenly VERY loud! HELP

Open up your computer the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer
to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
or you might have to clean the dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
if this fails to fix the problem you might have to uninstall your soundcard restart your computer then reinstall it

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to sounds and video controllers expand right click select uninstall
then restart your computer and reinstall your soundcard
hope this helps

Whenever the speakers are turned on there is a loud continuous tone that starts low and gets higher. How do I make it stop?

Hi. Regarding your issue, there might be a problem with the cable or the jack coming from the speaker itself. Better to have the speaker checked to its manufacturer, or have it replaced for you not to hear any annoying noise no more.

Insignia PC speakers - give a weird static feedback noise

I'm going to vote for the haunted option.

Sound like you have some noise on your power lines. This can be caused from many different things. Normaly it is a motor going bad or a compressor starting up. From the AC unit or refrigerator.

See if you can correspond the noise to anything else happening in the house. Fridge starting up, AC or heat cycling on...etc.

It may be that you just have speakers and a cordless phone going bad at the same time.

It might just be Casper the friendly ghost playing tricks... ha!

Static noise coming out of speakers

What sort of computer do you have? Is it a laptop or desktop? Many laptops have this problem and it is quite widespread in laptops. The crackling or humming noise could be a result of interference from the mains power signal.

If it's a laptop, try running it on battery alone (take out the mains power cord). My laptop has this kind of noise in speakers when running on mains electrical supply, but it goes away like magic when I run it on battery.

A more long-term solution is to buy a 'Ground Loop Isolator' and insert it between your computer and the speakers/earphones. They are quite cheap and you could get it for under £10. It removes all static noise and you'll hear crystal clear sound.

Logitech x530 hissing noise

I had the same problem for the longest time with my set of Logitech 540 5.1 speakers. Turns out the solution was pretty simple. All I did was open the Master Volume controller and mute the Microphone. Hissing went to zero. Sound is great now.
