Hey there,


I'm having an issue with one of my 8030c monitors. I work in quad a lot and so when turning on my system today and running tests, I found to my horror that one of my speakers is just blaring now. Even with the rear panel volume all the way down it is louder than the other monitors. What is going on here?


To my knowledge it was not knocked or dropped, nothing has changed in my signal chain or output setup. Does this mean I need to take it into shop? Has anyone ever encountered this?
