Yes they can. It's called destructive interference. When 2 sound waves converge on each other and the waves are 180 degrees out of phase then they will destructively interfere and the net effect will be the negation of both waves so you hear nothing.

How do sound systems work?

A sound system works by converting sound waves into electrical energy. The electrical energy is then converted back into solid energy that results in sound.

Can sound waves show interference?

Interference of sound waves occurs when one sound wave is not in phase with another. Graphically, this means that the sin/cos function representing the second wave does not line up exactly with the first one and the differences in sounds that result interfere with each other.
