Spent all night listening to jams on my Behringers. I'm going to go fix those Alesis monitors at the lab tomorrow. I <3 monitors.

It looks unhappy. The power supplies have blown filter circuits on the transformers and the woofers appear to be blown.

Final verdict: Both woofers are blown in the speakers, and the power supply has a bad RC circuit that needs to be repaired. Appears the two may be related, so hopefully resolving the issue with the woofer and small RC network will fix it.

The replacement Alesis speakers are $60 apiece. Prolly gonna go ahead and get them.

These things are goners. I'll just get some decent Polk speakers and a class-t amp and set them up.
