Are you sure it is from the speaker, and not your Receiver? I am not a repair tech, but in the past I have found static to be a loose connection, dirty RCA jacks, or dirty volume knob. Hope this helps you out.

Maybe XOVERS are broken?. My receiver is only 1.5yrs old I am 100% sure it is the speaker.:T No issues with any other speakers.

Take a look at the internal wiring, sometimes a loose connection at the crossover or at the speaker can cause this.

Do these have a continuously adjustable or step-wise adjustable tweeter and/or midrange control on the outside? If so, those pots or switches corrode over time and cause static. The old AR speakers were notorious for that.

Are the drivers intact and free of any damage or deterioration? Bad surrounds, voice coil delaminating, or loose parts can all cause noise.
