IIRC they also quite recently started offering a really long warranty on their products, if not a lifetime one, so your speakers might fall under that? Behringer stuff tends to come with loads of registration forms, along with all the documentation, so if you've still got that gubbinry I'd give it a look through.

They are active Behringer Truth monitors and I have no idea what has happened - any ideas what could cause this and how much it's likely to cost to repair?
Something has short-circuited in a place that carries enough volts and amps to cause smoke. If you haven't done anything that might cause this - spilt liquid, something dropped inside the unit, physical damage, connecting an inappropriate voltage to an input or output - we can put it down to a failed component and you should be OK for a repair under warranty. Your first port of call is the place where you bought the speakers.

This is where it gets sticky these days because the retailer is very unlikely to have any service facilities and will simply ship the monitor back to B's service agents.
I am not generally a detractor of Behringer kit but when I wanted monitors I went for a company that had been doing little else for better than half a century and not every electronic doo-dad known to man! Bonus as well that Tannoy are in UK (yes! I know the stuff is built in China, what ain't!).
