    I have a big problem with my speakers.

    After returning to my desk (coming from outside) I must have built up a static charge. I started to adjust the treble knob on the sub-woofer unit and I released a large static shock from my finger to the knob. Immediately after there was a hiss/distortion sound that was constant. I have tried unplugging the speakers and powering off the woofer. I don't know what else to do.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Wow, I've never heard of anything like this happening. :confused:

    Have you plugged them back in? If so, what was the result?
    The only advice I can give is try and see if you can get them replaced under warranty.

    I plugged the speakers back in and the result is the same, just a hiss/distortion sound.

    Sadly I bought the speakers in May '04 so the warranty ended in May '05.

    Oh, what a shame. :( Maybe there's someone around here that might know a bit more about it (I'm a bit clueless :eek: ). Your only other options are trying to get them repaired somewhere, or start looking around for some new speakers.

    So far that's what my situation is looking like. I'll do a bit more research on the internet and if I find a solution I'll post it here.
