Genelec 8040a crackling at 60hz

Genelec 8040a crackling at 60hz

One of my Genelec 8040a are crackling at 50-60hz. Playing a sine wave at that frequency is not outputing a smooth sub bass. The other monitor is at it should. 

I already tried to switch the monitors positions to exclude the possibility for being the audio interface or cables.  

Does that requires low frequency driver replacement or can be something else? 

Any idea on the cost?
