    I've had these Behringer truth b1030a's for a while now and I just noticed an issue. I was listening to:

    The Strokes - Heart In A Cage - YouTube

    I remembered there used to be a guitar riff at the beginning of the song...I cannot hear it at all, only the drum and bassline. I played the track on my phone and could hear it. What is wrong with my studio monitors, any way to fix this? I'm kind of new to mixing/mastering also. This is kind of a big deal if I get into mastering.

    Thanks!

    Behr***** and the word mastering do not belong in the same webpage. I would NOT however judge anything by a youtube video.

    your problem exhibits the symptoms of phase cancellation. perhaps your cables have been damaged or you are plugged in half way on the trs jacks. we would ned more information on how you have things plugged in to diagnose the problem.

    Having listened on headphones to the first 10 sec of the YouTube link you posted, it was very apparent that the opening guitar solo was panned hard right i.e. was in the right channel only.

    You should check that you have not lost the right channel somewhere in your system resulting in the left channel feeding both L and R outputs. This might happen if, for example, you used a TS (mono) plug to take the signal from a TRS (stereo) jack headphone socket, or the line outputs to your speakers are wrongly wired.

    Haha this was my problem, the right speaker was plugged into the headphone jack on my audio interface, I feel like an idiot! Thanks so much for the help!
