Squeaky TV set!

Connected to our tv we have all those little speakers that make up a surroundsound system - not something I ever would have thought we'd need but apparently a necessity where hubby is concerned. ;-)

Those little speakers are cool when sounds travel around the room and really do add to the movie experience for lots of different movies. 

They're a bit of a pain in the butt for different noises too - like a doorbell on tv always seems to come through the speaker closest to our front door.  How did they do that? And sometimes other noises only come through certain speakers so I think there is a noise in the kitchen or coming from the bedrooms.  [sigh]

Part of the sound system is a black box that sits on the floor - it has a proper name but it has something to do with the bass sounds.

What does all this have to do with a Squeaky TV set?

patience.  :)

We noticed that during certain shows or movies our tv squeaked!  It was so odd!  It wasn't always the loudest show.  And seemed to be random.  It was an odd squeak.  Maybe the speakers in the tv?  Maybe the tv was broken?  Hubby didn't seem to notice at first ... so I made sure to point it out to him.

When my daughter comes to visit, she will sometimes bring her cat so that he can run outside. We have a few toys here for when he comes to visit.  And the toys are on that black box.
See that mouse in the basket in the photo?  Well, it squeaks.  And apparently the vibration from the bass unit is enough to cause it to squeak!  And it squeaks whenever the black box vibrates!  LOL

Mystery solved.
