Hi guys, I'm very sad at the moment...I just set up my new Monitor 70's this weekend. I'm from Canada, and I had them shipped from newegg.com to a freight forwarder who then sent them on to me.
I've noticed that the second driver from the top gives out quite a bit of crackling, especially during heavy bass. The other drivers and the tweeter perform fine, and during some music and especially during tv shows with no bass, its almost impossible to notice, but during most movies there tends to be a constant crackle coming out.
Because I'm from Canada, I'm not sure of the exact warranty details...I noticed this problem very early on, (I only got them last weekend and started noticing it almost immediately) so I don't know if I blew them or they were damaged during transit? Is there anything I can do to test this or alleviate it? Instead of paying out the nose to ship it back to the U.S., do you think a local repair option would be better (or order a new driver?).
Any info or advice you have would be awesome!
