Picking up radio station signal through my speakers

So I recently noticed that my computer speakers are picking up some religious radio station and it is becoming increasingly annoying. It is fairly faint but still noticeable unless I am listening to music at the same time. I have tried repositioning the speakers, moving the cords around but still I continue to hear this radio station. My speakers aren't exactly expensive and high end but they aren't cheap and crappy. They are the logitech x240 speakers. How can I get rid of this? Or am I going to have to buy better speakers? I don't really want to go that route just yet.

I have been having the same problem with my logitech x-530 speakers, its very irratible but can only be heard when the volume is down on the speakers; though when turned up they produce white noise.. only bought them yesterday so they couldnt have broke; help!!

I have been having the same problem. I have tried many suggestions in different forums but nothing worked. Today I ran the Abexo free registry cleaner for another issue and surprise, surprise the radio problem in my speakers has stopped. I can only guess that it removed whatever was doing it from my registry. Hope this helps!!!

so ... that registry cleaner helped avoiding interference with a religious radio station, allright...
Would it flash the toilet and walk my dog too, do you think?

Try to remove any connection to the computer and connect your speaker to and MP3 player. It would be more likely that the PC has the issue and not the speaker.

Another is to move the speaker wires and the Sub away from any power line and away from a TV/Monitor. Try unplugging the sub power for two days (clearing any voltage reside on the capacitors).

I'm 90 percent sure that the problem comes from the PC, speaker wires and connections, not the speakers or the speaker amplifier.

I have been reading the posts on this site about speakers picking up radio stations. However, as far as I can tell, they are all about external speakers. I have an HP Pavilion dv9610us with Vista Home Premium that I purchased around 16 months ago (I don't know if any of that matters but just in case...) Yesterday I started hearing a radio station. Today I realized it was coming from my computer speakers. It doesn't matter how low or high I have the volume, or even if it is on mute its faint but is still there.
Also, I don't know if this is related to this issue or not but, when I turned my computer on this morning, there was no speaker icon in the notification area. I tried the fixes in the help sectionI and they did nothing. I actually had to disable all 3 sets of speakers I have registered on the computer and then enable the internal speakers alone in order to get the icon back up there and working again....Any thoughts?
May 5, 2009 4:15:36 AM

You can enable the speaker icon back thru Control Panel/Sound. As far as the station pickup, Completely shutdown PC and any unit connected to it. unplug all power cord. for at least a whole day to discharge any charge components.

Wow this is weird. I am having the same problem and it seems to be the SAME religious radio station you are hearing... My speakers aren't even connected to a computer, but an external monitor playing audio for a ps3. I don't have the problem using the speakers with my laptop, same location just changing what the speakers are connected too.

I thought this was weird to begin with but its so strange that we are both getting to same religious radio station?? any explanations?
May 30, 2009 8:44:41 AM

PS3 is connected to monitor is a specific none office application computer that your speakers is connected to. Aside from its usages, there's really no difference to you PC or Laptop.

As far as the religious station, it's probably low bandwidth signals that carried through your internet connections. So it’s easy to say, a bad combination of equipment can produce such interference. To minimize the interference is to use filters and/or remove the transformers and the unit with battery.

This is why company like Monster created filtered power protection unit.

Hi - I've got these same speakers and am experiencing the same exact problems - especially at night. Faint religious station coming thru. My old speakers (cyberacoustics) never did them and they had a subwoofer attached to them as well. Is it possible it's an isolated issue with the Logitech set? Though I could never find anything in their forums suggesting so.
June 3, 2009 10:50:59 PM

The problem is not the speakers but the component and designed use with the amplifiers, to cut cost the amplifier have to be simple and not really that filtered.

Try unplugging the audio source and try increasing the volume if you can hear any beside from hiss. Then try to connect an MP3 player then check if the voices still exist.

Most common problem on these occurrences is when audio system is connected to computers. With all the things that computers have; the "Switching Power Supply" is the biggest contributor with this anomaly.

Most poeple don't know that the most crucial component on any electronics is power supply.

To reduce this interference you need to:
Re-locate audio wires away from power line – separate power line from anything else
Use ferrite if possible – it may not fix your problem but one less thing from your check list
Avoid too many tangled wires – use tie wraps for long wires
Use a good UPS if you can but basic UPS is better than nothing - more features like surge, auto voltage and regulator, auto shutdown, power filtering protection, etc of course is better

Know how RFI/EMI works, it'll helps you understand how your electronic devices affect each others.

hi all, I also have logitech speakers and am also getting some sort of Indian/muslim radio station through. how freaky is this lol !?
October 7, 2009 2:15:12 PM

I recently moved, and while hooking up my computer I noticed a buzzing and a local radio station coming in through my Labtec subwoofer. This subwoofer is rather ancient, but I have never had this problem before in the past two places I have lived.

The volume of the buzz and radio station does not depend on the volume or bass control on the subwoofer, and the signal persists when I unplug from the computer. If I change the location of the power supply, or move the cable running from supply to subwoofer, the volume of the buzz and radio signal varies. I originally had the power supply plugged into a surge protector, and tried moving it directly to the wall. This did not change anything.

My guess is that the power supply and cord are acting like an antenna, picking up the radio waves directly from the air. I don't think it's coming from the wiring in this place, since the effect varies when I move the power supply or cable.

I will look into shielding the power supply and cable, in case it is acting as an antenna. If I have any success, I'll post again.

I have an old tv downstairs which is connected to a comcast cable box (analog and now digital/HD). Whether the tv is connected to the box or not, I receive radio stations! I believe I get more than one station at different times but cant swear to it. My computer is upstairs and recently, I have begun receiving radio stations through my "inland"spkers(very inexpensive).
I'm no electrical engr but it seems a lack of shielding coupled with increased electromagnetic amplitude may create this situation. With the TV, it has been going on for well over a year. With the computer, within the last couple of months. Its interesting that so many people have recognized this proplem. Is there a geographic commonality? Physical feature? I'm sure there is a simple explanation.

Hello there. I started to pick muslin or religious radio today (I live in Portugal btw - very far away from any of those countries). My speakers are the Logitech X-530 and they pick radio when the volume is down only and turned on and when connected to my Pc (never tried connecting to any other source to see if it picks up radio). This set also does a humming or buzzing noise when it is turned off but plugged to the wall. The sound comes from the sub-woofer and I can't sleep with it at night. I must plug it off the wall everyday.

Why isn't there an option to reply as a guest? There's so many ways to prevent automatic flood posting. I'm amazed to see a site like this one hasn't got a reply as a guest. It makes people to go through the hassle of registering and what a drag this is! Most of the time I just close the tab and move along and sometimes with a solution to what's been asked. Can you imagine if all of the time we wanted to make a reply we had to register every single site?? The amount of time it costs and the email full of junk plus remembering the passwords and usernames etc. You may delete this if you want and my account too but I bet many people right now coming from a google result thinks like me and it's not going through the register hassle just to make a reply or provide a solution. Just reads and moves along and no one will ever know what he wanted to say about "Picking up radio station signal through my speakers". Maybe he would say "I'm the one behind all of that but "Hey do I need to register to reply?!?!?! HELL NOT! Where's that close tab button?... brr registering gives me the creeps!"

Wow, you guys are all something special. Speakers are built using electromagnets. The frequencies produced cause the magnets to attract the radio frequencies and produce them back. That's why you're hearing radio signals. I just changed your lives...

Magnets don't attract radio frequencies...the reason you can hear the radio is because A) you bought a cheap speaker B) all consumer electronics are unbalanced wiring, therefore there is no protection against any RF noise...and if you don't know already, our planet is buzzing with radio frequencies. C) Try using a power strip with a Ground on it...Alot of noise is generated by faulty ground...It's possible you live in an old house with frail wiring.

I have the exact same problem. A conservative Christian radio station comes on at 7am CT on my computer speakers and shuts down sometime during the night. It seems to be about 20% as loud as anything I try to play through my computer and is very noticeable when the volume is up and I'm not playing anything. These people have some nerve tuning their broadcasts to to match the frequency of US power outlets. A very underhanded way of gaining additional viewers.

It's probably being caused by poor screening of the amplifer circuitry or by a dry solder joint on the circuit board.

Arrogant much? Your simple explanation of how a speaker works is not enlightening to anyone. Furthermore, it is not the magnets in the speaker(s) that are attracting the signal, they are merely transforming an already picked up signal from something within the device acting as a makeshift antenna. THAT is why all of us are here to work out a solution.
Try THINKING before you speak next time. Everyone is talking about a SINGULAR frequency and your talking about plural...that too on your part is very inaccurate.

Geographically its people who are located near broadcasting stations/antennas whom seem to have as you pointed out poorly shielded cables. Normally it is one frequency but sometimes can be multiple. (Everyone keeps talking about some conservative christian radio station that is comming in but in my area it happens to be a very specific MUSIC station.) I have been reading from other viewers that whether or not your hardware is properly grounded can be a contributing factor in this signal recieving anomally.
Do NOT use aluminum foil to try to create a blocking barrier as for this is good for blocking static electric or magnetic interferences.....this is a matter of radio waves and aluminum foil is a conductor...remember how they use to add them along with coat hangers to bunny ear antennas on the old televisions.

There are some other good ideas brought up by intelligent people on this site like: shortening your wires if u have too much slack, strap them together yet try to keep audio away from power, properly ground your devices electrical, try monster cables or other BETTER INSULATED cables than just your standards....and if all else fails your device either needs to be dragged out back and gotten the crap kicked out of it for not obeying you OR it just might need an exorcism lol.

O the electromagnetic amplitude....being your speakers basically is not the cause of this matter yet only the symptom. Speakers are just doing what they do, they are not whats picking up the "white noise frequencies" they are simply the messenger.
Physically speaking....literally its the combination of poorly insulated wires connected to a device that happens to be in an area containing a strong ressonance frequency or more. Shortening the slack of these poorly insulated wires obviously reduces antenna qualities but purchasing a cable that comes with electromagnetic, and RADIO WAVE shielding insulation (like monster cables) should eliminate the problem. If the problem only deminishes and doens't go away all together after these steps then it must be internal (unshielded) wiring within the unit itself that is also acting as a conductor. This is not likely but is possible.
This commonality is sporadic.

I am having the exact same problem with my speakers too. I pick up a faint radio station when the volume is down. Only thing different from what everybody else is saying is that I am picking up a pop/rock station and not a religous one.
March 5, 2010 11:12:56 PM

I'm in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia Canada, and I also get radio waves, both short and long wave, intercepted by my pc speakers. Unlike most however I am interested and intrigued by this rather than put off and am curious if anyone has any suggestions on enhancing or even 'tuning' the broadcasts being picked up.

This evening I confirmed that I am picking up a broadcast of CRI-English, and after testing verified the same feed on their webcast of their AM 1008 reportedly from Beijing is the same station that my speakers are picking up. I have contacted the station to see if they do have additional relay points for their broadcast or of that is the only Am broadcast location of that feed. Numerous other times I have picked up russian stations, as well as CB radios used by local cabbie's.

In anycase I'm interested if anyone has thoughts on what can be done to improve the signal my speakers are picking up or tuning it. Or if it'd just be better to invest in a longwave radio specifically. Thanks.

Well, I was going to say you might as well invest in a radio (shortwave) and a better pair of speakers and kill two birds with (er...) two stones.

This whole thread has me bemused.

It's basic that a sound system should not be subject to RF interference -- it's almost always poor design or a construction fault (usually the latter because design part is relatively simple). RF can be carried through the power lines -- but, again, the power supply section of the amplifier should eliminate this.

I've rarely suffered the problem. Once when a taxi firm constructed an antenna immediately opposite my home and I was using a very redundant tube hifi amplifier. More recently on a Chinese made bedside radio/alarm when taxis park opposite my home.

I don't think the quality of speakers could make a tremendous effect on the RFI. I am rocking Behringer truths B2031A speakers and I am receiving the same problem. I have gotten this problem in several cities as I have moved over the years. The speakers I am using are self powered and directly plugged into the wall, while the out is being fed by an Mbox 2 (external sound card) which is hooked up to me laptop. I have tried using a surge protector that acts as a power filtration system, as well as another plug that goes into my speakers plug to bypass the ground. Neither has worked. A college professor had told me to cut the ground off the cable but I'm not sure how safe that is and I have already bypassed the ground with no success.

Has anyone tried to use the power strip with the ground that annonomous was talking about? Don't just go buy expensive speakers it seems like there is a good chance you will go home and get pissed off with the same problem. Get back to me when you can all.

All the reports here relate to purpose built amplified speakers (as used for computers). I suspect that it still comes down to poor design and/or construction.

Personally I use an old and but originally expensive hifi amp and separate speakers. This is an integrated amp that has inputs varying in sensitivity from tuner and tape deck (low sensitivity) to phono (which is very sensitive).

Turntables involve fairly long and partly unscreened wiring -- thus a hifi amplifier has to have good rf interference rejection. In most decent hifi amps the case is metal -- actually diecast zinc in this instance.

No evidence of short wave or medium wave radio interference that people here reported.
March 27, 2010 5:51:20 AM

I tend to hear radios coming through my bass amp on occasion. Very rare, though. However, it's quite amusing to stop playing a song then still hear music :p 
March 29, 2010 5:54:38 PM

It may the one out of Nashville, Tennessee. WWRC. I pick up a religious station on my wireless headphones. I traced it to Tenn. Also I pick up American Voice Network that transmitts from the same place. From 1am to 4am they stream to ham radios.

It is travelling on the phone line itself. I have been able to pick up for years and it was not until last month I was able to trace. I called Verizon and they came out. But they have done nothing about it.

What can legally be done? Does anyone know?

fihart is right. The problem is not the speakers. The problem is poorly shielded consumer (including computer) electronics.

One of the problems is that it is just too expensive to build things in well shielded, metal boxes. Injection molded plastic is much cheaper.

These interference problems can be reduced or even eliminated. Unfortunately, most of these solutions do not lend themselves to aftermarket retrofitting.

Technically, WWCR (a radio station paid to broadcast other's programs) is responsible for controlling their interference. Many an AM radio station solved that problem on so many nearby homes. But good luck getting that TN international broadcaster to do that.

First do you know part of the circuit includes the phone line? Yes, circuit. To have that reception means both an incoming and outgoing signal path.

If it is on the phone line, then a DSL filter will block it. That is what DSL filters do. DSL is also a radio signal. So that other POTS devices (phone, fax machine, etc) do not 'eat' the signal, a DSL filter is installed to block that signal. WWCR is on even higher frequencies. The filter would be even better. But only if that is that is the only incoming (or outgoing) signal path.

The reason for interference is typically the same concept that makes crystal radios work. Knowing that goes a long way to determining the entire problem. All problems are solved first by learning what and why the problem is. Fixing comes later. Does disconnecting the phone line eliminate the signal? Before it can be solved, first, the incoming and outgoing signal paths must be identified.

haha wow thank you guys for these posts..
I've heard the voices and the random music now for some weeks, usually late at night, and have literally began to question whether or not i'm going insane, as no music was playing on my computer.

I was having paranoid delusions at one point that my PC had been hacked, and for whatever reason my speakers were playing bits of music from the person operating the PC on the other end, bringing up 'netstat' and doing a whois on every IP connected to me, port scanning my PC, checking what random open ports were doing. LOL.. Googled "i can hear music coming out of my computer speakers" on a whim thinking i'd never find an answer and saw this thread.. I have the Logitech X240 speakers by the way..

Cheers for clearing this up for me lol
May 2, 2010 3:53:32 PM

It really comes down to two or three things, and it is NOT fixable by system cleaners!
1. The speakers are bunk, try another type of speakers, or headphones, is the problem still there?
2. The radio station is splattering from the transmitter, causing interference all over the place. Call the radio station's engineer, or call the FCC and file a complaint. This has happened many times before, where the station is not being maintained properly. Raise Hell.
3. There are RF interference filters which install on the power line between the power and computer, or between the power and the speakers. You can buy them from radio shack and other vendors.
4. There are FM traps which install between Cable TV line (are you using cable internet?) and the internet modem. If the cable is disconnected from the modem, is the interference still there?
5. If the interference goes away after disconnecting CATV from modem, it's a cable company problem, which would not surprise me at all.
No you are not insane, this has happened lots of times, to lots of people. Test as above and post back to me. Work through the possible sources one at a time, until you determine where it comes from.

I got rid of this issue by opening the volume mixer in Windows 7 and muting the sound of the windows media center. I couln't imagine that WMC was getting the radio stations while connected to internet. I ended up by disabling Media Center.

Good luck to everyone...now I know it is not about the quality of the sound system but more a PC & internet issue !

The broadcaster would not be responsible for interference on devices unless they are shown to be operating out of their alloted wattage and frequency. If you read almost every single electronic device, there is a little sticker that states "this device must accept all interference" as part of the FCC approval.

There are 2 solutions that apply to every single post here. Replace the PC audio card (or add one if you are using the built-in audio) or replace the speakers. Actually there is a 3rd, line your room with aluminum foil.

It's nice to see so many users of logitech on this thread :lol:  , i have the same logitech speakers and also recieve radiowaves through them but only when the volume is set to the lowest setting.

it seems that when the speakers are plugged into a device (any device) which has a power supply attached to it, the speakers will receive the broadcasts. if the speakers are plugged into the device which is running on battery power, then no radio is recieved.

I was reading on another forum of a user having the exact same problem and they described that it's a combination of:

1. Changes in the earths ionisphere: at night radio waves are reflected for further distances which is why we can only hear the frequencies at night

2. Speakers are prone for Radio Frequency and Electro Magenetic Interfearence: poor quality speakers and wiring tend not to be sheilded from these so the interference is picked up. Audio systems with higher quality cable and components tend to better insulated against these frequencies being picked up

if you have purchased speakers which do this recently, i would suggest either exchanging them or getting a refund. otherwise, i think the only other option is buy a new set (probably something other than logitech)

I'm no expert but i think the problems might be caused by the use of unbalanced cables. I don't know if it will account for all of the situations previously stated but the tutor on my sound engineering course said that external interference can be picked up if using unbalanced cables. I wont bore anyone with the details but unbalanced cables only have two conductors the conductor that carries the "hot signal" and one is the ground. Balanced cables use three conductors, one being positive, one being negative and the last the ground. Basically the balanced cables eliminate external interference (radio frequencies etc.) by using phase theory (blah blah blah boring theory stuff... :sleep:  :sleep:  :sleep:  :sleep:  ). My suggestion would be buy balanced cables although I know this isn't the only solution. I know most if not all recording studios don't use unbalanced cables due to the possible interference. Can't think of any reasons speakers would be the problems.

Hope it helps! Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

An interesting observation. Except that most of the complaints are about cheap(ish) powered speakers of the type used with computers. These are not designed to be used with anything other than the standard speaker wiring.

Where I suspect you are on the right track is the fact that many place all the electronics in one speaker unit and run an unscreened lead to the second speaker from the power amplifier circuitry in the first. Due to the crude design of these powered speakers the unscreened wire may well be acting as an antenna and feeding interference back into the amplifiers.

OMG! same! I thought it was just me, but no! I have x240 too, and sometimes it picks up random radio stations. But weirdly my guitar amplifier picks them up too
