Front Speakers are Buzzing

Hello. I have a problem with my audio setup.
I am currently using a SB Audigy 2ZS with 5.1 Surround speaker setup. My 2 front(left and right) speakers had started making a buzzing sound when I play games for some reason. I've never had this problem before and had also not changed anything. I can play music and watch movies perfectly fine, but when I start up a game like Garry's Mod, they would buzz. They would also buzz differently if I move my mouse too. I have the 2 front speakers connected to a 10 band stereo equalizer for when I'm playing music or movies. One of my friends said it could be a ground loop, but I don't know. I've checked the wires and everything and even rebooted the system. My front Center and 2 Rears don't buzz, so I think it might be the Equalizer.

Any ideas on what to do would be appreciated. Thank you!

More about front speakers buzzing
  1. open the audio software and change speaker modes...
    a ground loop would come from cable TV. disconnect all cable and see if the buzz goes away.
    If the buzz goes away when you disconnect cable TV, use a ground loop isolation transformer on the cable.

    Also, try lifting the ground connectors with 2 to 3 blade adapters for the power plugs...

    you can stop a ground loop by lifting the grounds with adapters.
