After about 7 years in the same spot, one of my speakers just started making a loud buzz.  When the XLR is unplugged, the buzz continues. When music is played through, it sounds like digital distortion, the kind you hear when you have the wrong bitrate on your sound card.  Any thoughts are welcome as I am in panic mode now :/. Let me know if there is any more information I can provide to help diagnose the problem! thanks!!!!!

I'm thinking maybe it's some shielding component gonna bad? Is that possible in these speakers? It sounds like a big static buildup or something. Thanks!!!

In case someone ever googles this :) - so letting it sit powered without any XLR connected and turning it off and on 4 times over an hour's time made the buzz go away.  I plugged in the XLR while it was still on and it's working again.
