If it is a speaker problem, it is probably a voice coil scraping due to cone warping or a tear in the cone surround. Look at the cones for any sign of anything being physically uneven or off-center and listen for a scraping sound at high volume.
It really seems more likely that you have a problem with the audio quality from the cable or satellite receiver though. Try a CD player or some other audio source and see if you can hear it.
If it is the speaker, it is good to nail it down while under warranty.
Ok my problem... I'm noticing what I think is distortion (crackling noise) coming from my tweeters on my fronts and my L-R speakers. It only seems to happen while watching certain movies on HBO HD. I have not noticed it while watching DVD's. It happens no matter what my volume level is.
At first I thought my crossover settings got screwed up. But when I checked there all still set at 90. For shits and giggles I raised them all to 250 and it is still just as bad. Then I checked my speaker settings. There still all set to "small". And in case it matters I'm watching in movie mode in Dolby Digital.
The most recent movie was How to Train a dragon. The odd thing was I could switch to the non-hd channel and it would go away.
Have any of you experienced this before? If so is there some thing I can do to fix it?[/quote]
