My quite old 8040a have been serving me well. However I knew this day was gonna come sooner or later. 

Has anyone experienced a loud (max pegged volume) buzzing on an old Genelec speaker?

I'm betting one of the capacitors finally gave up. I have experience with soldering and I'm gonna attempt replacing them.

Any suggestions? Thank you.

My trusty 1031a speakers both,  did this- separately.  I shipped the main board back to Genelec in Massachusetts and they recapped the bad one and others that could fail. Very efficient turnaround.
