Unhappy New guitar speaker making a 'rattle' sound from the edge of the cone??

I recently received a 'new' blue alnico (celestion), and it sounds perfect at quiet volumes. I broke it in for about a hour, slowly turning it up. When I get to a certain volume (It's pretty loud); I can hear this rattle/buzz sound come from the edge of the speaker cone. Plus it is coming from one direct spot, not the whole surround. I have also taken the speaker out of the box to make sure it wasn't the cab or hardware making the noise..

My question is: Is this a damaged speaker?

I can't say for sure, but considering what you paid for it I'd just return it.

At last something happened, I've been refreshing the GG&A for fifteen minutes because I'm bored...

But as Tubetime said, if you have a warranty take it back, if you don't have one still take it back and start complaining and you could get a new one.
