    Curve creates stereo speaker interference

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I've noticed that my Curve causes speaker interference. What I mean is that it causes speakers for other devices to periodically buzz. I'm a video editor, so I'm sitting in front of a set of expensive speakers all day. Every ten minutes or so, my speakers make a sort of buzzing sound. Today, I noticed the same thing happening to my car stereo speakers.

    Does anybody know what specifically could be causing this interference, and whether there is anything I can do to stop it?

    Thank you!

    I'm interested to find this out as well, 1 thing I can say is that I have noticed that most of my cell phones would cause a slight interference a second or two before the phone would actually ring if I had it near the stereo~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Generally moving the device away from the speakers does the trick

    As one Poster said just move back a bit and it will stop, and yes just about all Cellphones does the same thing, I would imagine that you've noticed it more with your Curve or "Data" connected BB, simply because it is constantly getting email pushed to thereby "Transmitting".

    your speakers are unshielded (or poorly shielded) and so they are picking up the cellular waves. Blackberries have pretty strong radios so when placed close to things like cd players, radios, etc. that aren't shielded you will get the 'bzz'. a few options you have is:
    -to find speakers that are heavily shielded
    -keep your phone farther away from the speakers you currently have
    -turn off your bb's radio whenever it's near the speakers

    Yep... strong BB signal when data is being transmitted... this is true of most devices transmitting data near a speaker though...

    Not just Curves

    You have heard anything until you put a IDEN radio next to a speaker.....

    Thats a GSM (AT&T) thing, you wont find that on a CDMA (Verizon) device. I have both, and have always found it annoying that GSM creates that interference.

    cdma devices dont because its spread spectrum... All tdma based tech devices will do this.

    I haven't noticed that with my 8830.
    By the way how is the speaker comparison between the two?

    wow.. ok.. I am as my job a Digital Audio Sound Mixer for Atlantic Records. Ive had the problem allways have had the problem.. If you have expensive speakers i dont know what company but if they ran you a lot of money out of the pocket keep your phone away from them. there is no way to shield your speakers.. its acctually what the baffel and cone of the speaker that causes it.. I found that Klipsch with the carbon baffels and brass plated nickle cones are the best in dealing with cell phone interference. I dont get it anymore.. B&O only company that has shilded speakers but will run you about $15,000.00 per every 2 speakers. Klipsch way cheaper just as good.

    For now keep your phone away from those speakers every time you hear the buzz your speakers hear it too.. everytime your speakers produce that sound your destroying them.. also the fidelity and just exactly what those speakers put out such as 7-25kilihertz can change to 20-17,000kilihertz. greatly reducing your sound.

    what kind of speakers do you have? sometimes changing the type of cable you use can stop the IFRA interference.
