Speakers Clipping

[link to this post]
Hoping someone can help me out with this issue.

I have Microlab Solo 8C speakers.

Had no issue with them for the past 3 years or so but about 3-4 months ago they started to hum slightly when I turn them on (On any input or muted) and clipping with high volumes or with bass.

I am going to go in and check some voltages and see if I can find something "Hinky" But is there anything else I should be looking for?

At a guess, the power supply is failing and cannot provide the peak current that the amplifier is asking for. You may need to replace the capacitors. Note that this is a "current" issue, not a "voltage" issue, so checking the voltages probably won't tell you much.
