I have a pair of Cambridge Soundworks Newton Series speakers…

Customer Question
I have a pair...

I have a pair of Cambridge Soundworks Newton Series speakers with the powered sub woofers. Recently I have begun to hear a hum and every once in a while (more often now) a 'whump' from the bass when power in on to the speakers even when the Marantz receiver is off.

Technician's Assistant: What Marantz model do you have?

Hold on

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Marantz system?

SR5008

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

I'm a novice so I'm not sure what else may be needed

How old are the speakers?

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
About 10-12 years old
Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 5 months ago

Unfortunately, the speakers will need to be replaced since it would cost more to repair than replacing.
