Hi guys, hopefully there are some people with good audio knowledge floating about.
Recently I invested in a pair of KRK RP6's. Everything was going great with them, they were a huge step up from my old fostex monitors.
However the other day I was working on some stuff where my sub bass peaked pretty high in logic. I got a kind of distorted sound and a kind of
plastic/rubbery smell out of the bottom vents.
Now I'm not sure if I am being paranoid over worrying about the speakers but to me the left monitor sounds pretty crap compared to the right one
Also, there is a pop/click kind of sound when I turn the left one off, and when I turn it on the cone moves in and out slightly.
This doesn't happen with the right speaker, so I'm moving towards there being a problem with the left one.
So my question is, based on what I have explained has one, or possibly both speakers been damaged?
I'm using XLR to TRS connectors, my dB setting on each speaker is 0dB and HF setting is -1dB.
I have only had them about a month, so they are still under warrenty.
