Ampeg PF-210 Tweeter static?
Hello all I am fairly new to TB so if I'm posting in the wrong area please inform me. I recently acquired 3 ampeg products a pf-800 head a pf-210 cab and a pf-115lf extension cab. All work and perform beautifully except for the tweeter in the 210 cab. It emits this static noise when I turn on the horn or turn up the treble and it is really annoying. It's like recording in a quite room with your cellphone then you listen back and it has that background fuzz. Any advise or input would be very very extremely helpful. Thanks All

Tweeters don't create static or noise, amps, electronics, basses and bad cords do. That's what needs to be looked at. Some amps are just naturally noisy, as are some electonics and most single coil passive pickups.

Static or Hiss
If it's hiss, the horn is just reproducing the "sound" that is sent to it.
If the amount of high end you have in your sound is necessary, try a noise gate. The hiss will switch on and off, but hopefully the amount of "good sound" will be louder than the apparent hiss.

Like Rick james and John m allready said, the tweeter doesn't produce any hiss by itself (if it's broken it doesn't produce any sound or it will sound buzzy).
Some cabs have "hyper-active" tweeters, together with a dip in the mids will make the hiss stand out more.
Maye some other part of your equipment is faulty or just plain noisy....

Tweeter sounds blown to me.

Tweeter doesn't sound blown to me. Could be a cold solder joint on the crossover. I fixed a similar problem on a 4x10HLF last week.

Well you're the expert and I was just guessing ;)

Thanks everyone I'll have my local music store take a look at the solder joints and take a look at my amp head as well just to be on the safe side
