Question 120v outlet filter for noise, such a thing? (popping noise from speakers)

I don't have much choice in my house where I plug in my pc, so I think it's on the same circuit as a chest freezer. So whenever the compressor on the freezer cycles, it makes the speakers on my pc give that loud click, and with headphones on it's really annoying. Is there such a filter that I can install either at the freezer or the pc to stop this?

perhaps a line conditionner or a ups with a built in one, im thinking. look it up, around the 25 dollar mark.



looks like there are : AF120 - ACT Plug-in Noise Filter 120V 15A


XPPF - X10 Pro Plug-in Noise Filter 120V 5A

Yup. Line conditioner. Some of the better UPSes have this feature.

I use this one but it may be a bit of overkill for your uses:

LC1200 - Line Conditioner / AVR System - Automatic voltage regulator / Power conditioner / AC surge suppressor
