I have always been an advocate of having a strong surge protector. I'm not at my home pc right now but I have a pretty decent surge protector (about $50). However, there have been times I've noticed a crackling popping noise through the speakers when something is turned on such as a ceiling fan.
Is that normal? Shouldnt the surge protector be blocking those small inferences as well as the huge lightning strikes?
