    Sounds like you might be getting crosstalk within the surge suppressor. I'd suggest getting a better surge suppressor, preferably one that isolates the outlets into banks/groups to avoid interference.
    Yep. The problem isn't the surge protector, speakers, or computer, it's the wiring in your house. Do you happen to have fader switches (e.g., switches that allow you to vary the amount of light a light puts out) on the same circuit?

    My Wii and PS3 are in a surge protector. I also have a 360 that is in my brother's room that is in a surge protector, as well.
    I don't care WHAT Jim says, that is NOT the real Ben Franklin, I am 99% sure.

    In my profession, I come across countless people who think they're using a surge-suppressor but who are not. Make sure that it says "suppressor" somewhere on it... if it just says something like "temporary power tap", then it's just a "power strip" that isn't protecting you one bit.

    Also, there's a world of difference between a $2.99 surge suppressor and a $79.99 one. Make sure you're using one that's a level of quality proportional to what you're protecting. The $5 surge suppressor belongs on your toaster, not your computer.
