    Odd question

    So got a subwoofer (Adams Audio), and hooked it up to my studio monitors, This is all fed though a Black Lion Revolution AI box from a computer.

    Anyways, I am getting fairly regular low volume static. Probably from EMI or RF. I didn;t experience this before. Is this just from the additional cable runs? Have a RF/EMI Surge strip arriving shorty that I hope addesses this.

    Did you check that the outlet is properly grounded and connected to neutral?

    Just spitballing here: try relocating the speaker in relation to any other electrical equipment &/or devices. A speaker is a coil, after all, & coils like to pick stuff up

    Yes, the more I think about it, it’s probably because I had 3 phones on the desk it’s under.

    Not necessarily. Every piece of gear has its own quirks.
