Noise, I get a buzzing noise out of my speakers when i hook up my interface with a jack cable any help ?
If the buzzing is louder or softer, directly relative to the volume level, it is signal interference.
99% of the time, when you get the buzzing or "air" sound, it's the cable. To give you an idea of how serious this is, each of my speakers has a Monster THX Ultra 1000 speaker wire running to it, which can cost roughly $100.00 each. This is for the sole purpose of eliminating that air noise or buzzing.
When running speaker cables or AV cables, you don't want them to run parallel to each other, unless they are several feet apart. If they have to cross paths, you want them to cross perfectly perpendicular to each other so as to minimize the amount of contact they may have.
Speaker wire should also be twisted copper (unless running fiber optic cable, which would be extremely rare). Many people try to use solid strand, but a lot of the signal is lost, even when well insulated.
If your speakers are close to anything electronic, try to move them away from the source, or move the source from the speakers.
If you have a GSM phone, the phone can cause distortion in your speakers as well, but with the newer phones, that only happens when it reverts to the older tower technology.
It could be the source of your sound input as well. If you have a bad connection at the source (assuming your computer?), or the source itself just isn't a very good quality, this can also cause that buzzing or air sound.
Hope this helps.
