Re: Shade Tree Repair Guide: Crackling/Static in KRK Rokit 6 Speakers
Thanks for this thread!
Since 2012 I own a pair of KRK Rokit 5 RPG2. I used them the first 3 1/2 years almost 24/7 and then on a daily basis, without big issues .... i guess after the first 2 years the first little hissing, humming and crackling appeared sometimes on monitor A ... it became more frequently, longer, more intense until 2016 (Monitor B started after 4 years with minimal noises ) . It was most of the time gone when they reached temperature after 30 minutes.
But since 2017 monitor A is always loud popping, crackling and humming ..(it is still operating fine between the frequently events of buzzing, - approximately every 20 seconds - in the second half of the video I turned the music off, then the membrane starts to freak out (youtu.be/GG_apVaXErk).... I have no abilities to fix it myself, so I hope I will find some repair-shop, which is able to do the recommended fixes, of this fantastic thread. I guess it was a big mistake to use them all the time after the first time the cracklings appeared and i am sure much more components on the board failured meanwhile...
