1031Ahums at start up

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 9/17/10 Recent Posts
When I turn on my 1031A I hear a hum for about 3 seconds. This goes away but when I 'm using them, I hear what sounds like a feedback at a small frequncy. This sound continues for about 3 seconds after I stop music play back.
I just got these speakers so I know nothing about them. Since this sound happens on both speakers I don't think anything is blown.
Can any one help me with this?
Also, is there a repair place in NYC?

Hello Max,

Could you try if the hum goes away if you turn on the speakers with the signal cables unplugged?

Also the feedback sound sounds like something maybe related to the source instead of the speaker. Can you try the speakers with a different source?
