when at an average volume...

It came from the powered and not-powered woofer on my B&W DM605S2.

I went over and while the tweeter was working (didnt check the cone) the 2 woofers stopped working...

I shut off the receiver and the source...

15-20 minutes later, got a similar sound from it. I forgot to shut off the powered amp. So I go to do that, and I noticed a very faint burning metal sound and the heatsink is really hot and so is above and below the flowport...

Did I burn out a crossover or something?

Any guesses?

I sent an email to B&W, but I referred them to my hotmail account which I cant open at work. So if someone has an explanation, I'd like to hear it.

Thanks,

Rich

If the internal amplifier failed it could have damaged the powered woofer. But I don't know how that could have affected the externally powered woofer. Do you know if the receiver is working alright? And can you remove one of those woofers to look inside?
