nick, my 4x10 had a blown speaker out of the box, i was able to dectect that the buzzing noise was only coming out of one particular driver.
@ a fairly low volume, play some of those lower notes, put your ear right up to the cab, listen carefully to each driver, you should be able to pinpoint what driver is giving you the problem (ported cabs will be a little harder to pinpoint, but by no means impossible).
if it seems to be emulating out of every driver, perhaps the drivers could be out of phase with each other (some are going out as some are going in...this will cause some strange sounds, and noticiable loss of volume, like they're canceling each other out).
isolating the problem is the name of the game here, i work tech support man, trust me, you gotta narrow down the possibilites, bad cable, bad battery, bad bass?
its not a glasslike tinkling sound is it? is so the could be the preamp tube on its last legs, but it doesnt sound like it.
