Popping static sound?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Recently I've noticed this very annoying habit of my cheapo 2.0 Altec Lansing speakers...

At random points I can hear small bursts of what sounds like white noise or static, and it's really annoying me

The connection to my onboard seems fine...

Is it the speakers on the way out - they were like $20 a good couple of years back and I often put them on very loud when I'm in the shower - or is there something wrong with my onboard/drivers?

I could probably afford some new speakers like these:

I'm not after awesome sound, just decent sound

Thanks!
