    i have a Behringer BX600 that i love but recently its been making a really annoying buzz when i play loud. I used to be able to play it with everything maxed out but know if i go over half volume i get a brutal buzz. It almost always happens when i fretted notes the opens usually aren't as bad. Any ideas?

    Sounds to me like your speaker cone may be rubbing the voice coil.

    Try this. Remove the grill. Spread your fingers evenly around the surface of the speaker cone and gently press down. Does the speaker make a scraping noise as it's moving in and out? If so, you'll need to re-cone it.

    If not, I'm stumped.....
