Noise in Monitors

Greetings. I've looked at similar threads and couldn't find anything that helps with my situation.

I have 2 yamaha hs50ms connected to a presonus firebox, then to my PC through firewire. Whenever the monitors are powered on and I connect the monitor cables, they have this sound that isn't really a hum or buzz; it's more like a sub pushing a really low rumble.

I have had the same monitors, cables, and interface hooked up at a friend's house and there was no noise. My cables aren't really running over any power cables and my friend's setup was 100x more messy. Lastly, I've tried multiple outlets in this room and headphones work great with no noise.

My guess is that it has to do with some kind of interference with the cables but it's weird my friend never had the problem. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
