Having problems with your Durabrand 5.1 Surround Sound Computer Speakers ?

Static in the sound

\015 I bought these speakers (because they were cheaper....probably should have bought the higher ones after another shopper told me that had a lot of static) at Wal-Mart today. I hooked them up and immediately had static & noise. How can I fix it or can I fix it??\015

Answers :

The static is called "line noise". It happens when there is not a lot of protection between the copper wiring that carries the signals and the outside. One way for manufacturers to save money is to put just a very thin piece of protection around the copper wires, with no insulation. Just copper wiring and a thin piece of rubber or plastic. So that is why you hear the static noise, the wires are cheaply made and cannot keep out the signals they interfere with it...hence the cheap price. Wal Mart is good about giving refunds, bring it back and get a better made system. It might cost a little more but the sound will be what you enjoy.
