Listen carefully as the note decays and you can hear a "crackling" noise. This is from a one year old eden 2x12xlt thats only been gigged with a couple of times.

I can't hear the link as I get a message saying it has been removed.
A couple of things to try with Eden cabinets. Eden cabinet are known for distortion caused by the 1/4 inch jacks. First is to plug the 1/4 inch jacks on the back. Your cabinet should have come with some plugs for this. If not use the cheap foam ear plugs.
Another thing to look for is a wire hanging on the speaker cone. You can do this by removing the speaker and making sure all wires are out of the way. This will not void your warranty so is worth a look.
Another thing to try is to push on the cone to see if your feel any grinding or rubbing caused by the voice coil contacting the magnet. If you can feel something it is likely your speaker has a problem.
Have you tried disconnecting the speakers one at a time to see if it is a particular speaker?
Over all your best bet is probably to Eden CS for a factory authorized repair center as your cabinet should still be under warranty.

this link should work.
I tried pluggig the 1/4 inch jacks before, that didnt work.
I'll take her apart when I have time over the holidays and see whats what.
As fas an authorized repair center, the closest to me is a good two hours, which wont work for a variety of reasons.

I didn't listen to the link, but I had a similiar problem. I thought that I had blown a speaker in my rig, but it turned out to be the batteries in my Modulus going bad. I dropped in some new batteries and the problem was solved. I don't know if your bass is active, but it is worth a shot.

I listened several times, at a high volume, and I can't hear it. That doesn't mean it's not there, just that I'm not hearing it.
Did you do the one speaker at a time test that Keith suggested?
Another thing I've noticed often in the past is that a "crackling" noise can often be the result of a cable. So you might also try reducing your signal path as much as possible (take out effects, etc and make the path from the bass to the cab use as few cables as possible) and then replace each cable in the remaining path one at a time to eliminate the possibility of a cable causing the crackling.
