In my room I have some speakers, they are good speakers, when they are run seperately they have no buzz but when they are running they have a loud buzzing noise. I believe this is because the speakers and all their cables are nestled in a pile of other cables and powerboards, so i think the cables for the speakers need RF shielding what do I use for this? Can i use foil? can i use pieces of iron?

AC power is a 60 Hz (or 50 Hz if you live in Europe) wave. When you put AC power cords near other things, the magnetic fields they induce the same wave in those things. As for shielding, it's the cables that go from your source to the amp that are receiving interference. Make sure that you have shielded cables. Speaker signals are strong enough that the interference doesn't matter to them.

You can insolate your room from RF by lining the walls with copper mesh. Different mesh block different frequencies, you might have to check to see what you need to be sure. I can tell you that it works, many coperations use it to insolate meeting rooms, and they even proved it on TheScreenSavers (put a cellphone in a case and tried to call it).
