Speaker System Buzzing Issue

So a few months ago I built a pair of duel 12" subs and those are combined with my 8" JBL studio monitors. Im not sure weather I did this before or after I built the subs but I also have 4 rgb LED light bulbs installed in the ceiling with a remote. Ever since I've had this setup there is an annoying and loud buzz coming from both the subs and monitors (much louder from the subs, the studio monitors aren't much of a problem)
This is my full set up currently:

-PC goes into mixer
-mixer goes into 2x4 mini DSP
-mini DSP goes into the studio monitors and a 1000w Pyle amp
-Pyle amp goes into the subs

I know that the light bulbs are linked with the buzzing and here are my observations:

-I usually have the lights at a dim purple setting and the buzzing is still somewhat loud and noticeable
-Whenever I have the lights at a bright white setting, the buzzing is extremely loud and intolerable (If I need the lights like that then I just turn the amp off)
-When the lights are completely turned off the buzzing is quieter but still noticeable and annoying. (This is true when I turn the lights off through the LED remote and through the electrical switch)
-Whenever something is being played through the system the buzzing still continues
-The studio monitors are plugged directly into different wall outlets but the amp is plugged into a line of 2 surge protectors that then go into a wall outlet (So the system uses multiple outlets)

I have dealt with this for months so I;m in no rush but I would prefer the cheapest and easiest option to fix this, any help would be appreciated

Could be a grounding issue. These cheater plugs could be an inexpensive solution.

All the power plugs in the system (Ones going into the surge protectors and walls) all have 3 prongs and go into 3 prong outlets so I;m confused as to how this would fix the problem but if it will an explanation would be great before I buy
