S30 C - crackles when chassis vibrates /is knocked on

Hello everyone,

yesterday i got a used pair S30C, they seemed to be ok first, but today i'm working with more bassy material and now the right monitor at louder volumes goes into overload (LED) and crackles (mid-tone speaker).

Update:

I found out that the crackle/overload comes from vibrations over the chassis, i.e. when i "knock" on the chassis (or even deep frequencies shaking it), the crackle appears. I guess there's some faulty contact, possibly due to transport ? For demonstration i made a short video:

Does anyone know if/how/where this can be repaired ?
Any help is highly appreciated, thank you!
