Broke Monitor??? HS 80M


I bought a pair of used HS80M's of of ebay about two months ago. I just started noticing a sound coming out of my left speaker. It seemed to sound like a big puff of air or a crazy low distorted sound.

I pressed down on the cone and it felt like it was hitting something. I then took the back off the speakers and looked and everything seemed fine so I put it back together and hooked it back up.

When i turned it on i was hearing a suttle high pitch tone from the tweeter and the speaker cone actually had a very suttle vibration to it when the volume was turned up.

I checked the other speaker and it did not have the high tone or the vibration. I then switched cords to see if the power cord/outlet or the other cord was causing the sound or vibration and it still had the tone. I decided to play a track again and somehow that first sound stopped. (could the cone have been hitting the cord behind it? and what could cause the high pitch and vibration that is on the left speaker when the volume is all the way up with no music playing?)
