M-Audio DX4 Studiophile Monitoring Speakers - Fried!!!

Hi, I'm in the middle east and I just received some lovely new DX4 speakers shipped over from the U.S. I should have known better but in my excitement to get to work I plugged them in and turned them on and, fizzly static sound bursts forth briefly followed by wispy smoke from the main speaker.
So the power here is 240v and these were designed for 110v or whatever the power is in the U.S. and I've fried something.
I'm a muppet!!
They were quite pricey to ship out here so I don't want to ship them back and forward to the U.S. for servicing, and the warranty doesn't cover acts of muppetism.
Can someone tell me what component it is that I most likely fried?
Is this a component I could source and replace myself?

Hi Mr Goodrice
Happy Holidays
You may friied the capacitor of power regulator, or power suppy module. have to get to some place to make the change, or you have to RMS the speakers to US to replace. no other thing can be done. also you need a special conector and transformer to get the right voltage there.
good luck

Working but the sound is dissorted

Check for any dust or moisture on the 3.5 mm Audio Jack that connects the speakers to the PC

Plug out it for once and plug in again after cleaning it

this should solve the problem

Sound through headphones only.

Try the speakers on another computer, to see if they work at all. If they do, then the problem is the audio-interface on your computer (or DVD-player, or home-stereo system).

Connection to Mixer

I am not sure about that brand but on my Roland Speakers, the TRS jack lives inside the XLR. I first missed it. Take an XLR and try to connect. I can't imagine that they would not have XLR especially for studio monitors. Also are your speakers passive or active, that is something that I would seriously at. No amplitude, low signal, no active.
