You are getting crossover noise from an un-shielded cable somewhere. Make sure you do not have power cords running in-line and next to speaker and RCA cables. Also make sure that you do not have any cable wrapped around another cable. Also check to make sure that you have no crossing over of cable where the speaker wires are connected to the speaker and the amp. Sometimes you will get stray strands of copper crossing near or on the binding post. If that doesn't work....try to isloate the wires...if that doesn't work then you might have problems with the power coming into your home. You may have to get a power center with noise isolation. Let me know if anything here works or not.

since its a fairly old system like 10 years old im going to replace all the wires and i think that will fix it.

ur not gonna keep *****ing about that are you, you were wrong i was right. [/discussion]

it also could be the reciever. i had an old one that used to make a ton of noise because it kept building up static electricity from its power supply. i could get a massive blue spark jump 3 inches when i went to turn it off... hurt so bad.

That would be a bad thing.....yea...you were right and I was right either way it is funny! Gold tips make me laugh. It is like having a 200 mph car and then putting on tires that will only allow you to go 150 mph. I perfer the fast one even if I have to occasionally have to maintain it to keep it orperating at a higher level.
