Default Surge Protection

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?

1) AMD Athalon 64 Toledo 4400+ X2 + thermaltake big typhoon heatsink/fan, ABIT AN8 SLI x16 socket 939, OCZ powerstream 520w, 1gb Corsair XMS DDR 400, WD 250gb Sata 3.0, XFX 6800XT...NZXT ZERO case

Hmm...sounds to me like just interference. Shouldn't have anything to do with the surge protector.
