Focal Twin6 Distortion/Air Leak sound

So I noticed this weird air leak sort of sound coming through one of my Twins today, the other one sounds absolutely fine.

They're a few weeks old and have run in for about 50 hours or so.

Never pushed them too loud so far so there is no way I've blown anything.

Test running a 30Hz sine wave

Test with a bassline (You can hear the distortion a lot more clearly even though the bassline itself has no distortion)

The problem seems to lie in the 60-200Hz region and there's no lack of detail in the sub bass or even mid-range for that matter.

Any idea what this could be?

hmmmm Maybe open it up in the back and see if anything is loose causing that rattling. Could be a bad woofer too I guess.

Incidentally, just noticed a ebay ad at the bottom of this thread selling a Focal Twin empty box for 40 bucks, $64 shipping. Jeeesh. Wonder how they would ship it to you? In another box? heh
