Default Mark Levinson Speaker Issue

ML dashboard center speaker hiss

Hey all, new to the forum, I bought an 06 GS300 with the ML stereo system about a month and a half ago, yesterday I noticed a hissing static noise (almost like a pebble rolling around the cone) coming from my dashboard center console speaker even at low volumes, I do play my music loud often but it does not exactly sound like a blown speaker, it sounds more like it could be a wire touching...has anyone else had this issue and what was done to resolve it? please help, thanks in advance.

This is also whether playing the disc changer or radio.

Took the speaker out and the top of the cone had came apart, hit it with some glue and put it back in and it works perfectly, you can delete this thread if necessary.

Thank you...and I believe it was probably between the heat, and vibrations from me playing the stereo loudly at times.

I wonder if this might be the problem with the 6x9 that I have in the SC430 passenger door....?? Anyone have experience at fixing or replacing this one?
