I was moving some bass traps from behind the speakers when the trap fell and landed on the cables. This caused the 8250's light to blink from orange to red to green and then a loud feedback noise came from the speaker.

I had to unplug the speakers to get the noise to stop...

I then turned them off and then on again but the blinking continued...

After waiting about 10 minutes with the speakers off I turned them on again and everything seemed normal, the speakers lights stayed green and audio was reproduced as usual.

Can I expect problems in the future?
