I just purchased a new Polk RM705 system that I hooked up on a new Yamaha rx673 receiver that I also received last week. It's my first time setting up a surround sound system but I'm pretty confident everything was set-up correctly with 14ga cables.
I wanted to hear the loudness of the system so I cranked it up to about 15db but one of the speakers broke. So now, it still plays but sounds cracked when loud noises are output. So what happened? And is that a defect in the speaker or the result of my actions?
Also, when putting no music at all but cranking the volume, I hear a 'chhhhhhhh' from all speakers. Is that normal? I tought no noises at all would come out of the speakers until a real output is sent from the receiver?!?
Anyway, please give me answers on why my speaker broke please.
