Hey Everyone, I have got my Line 6 Pod Go hooked up to a pair of PreSonus Eris 4.5 studio monitors, and I have been using this setup for about a month. Recently it started to really bug me that when I play on some presets that I have made, after I have played for ~3-4 minutes, the speakers will start to crackle when I hold a note. I have recorded the sound and put it on soundcloud, if you would like to listen here is the link (You can faintly hear the crackle at the end of the recording, it sounds worse in person): https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/eGpZ7

I have been trying hard to find a way to fix it, have changed all of my leads, moved to different power supplies etc. to test if it was a grounding issue. No matter what I try, the crackle always comes back. Is it because the signal out of the Pod Go is too hot for the speakers in some of my higher gain presets? Or am I overheating my speakers? Would putting a cheap audio interface between the Pod Go and the monitors would help? I'm really hoping someone has an answer for me, thanks in advance.
