Ampeg BA-115 Repairs?

    Hey guys! I was doing searches about broken BA-115 combo amps, but couldn't find anything that was relevant to my question/problem.

    I have a BA-115 that crackles when I turn the volume anything higher than half-way.

    This started to happen after a drunken friend of mine fell on top of my amp and knocked it over.

    I don't know anything about electronics or how to diagnose the problem.

    Who can I take my amp to to get it fixed? I'm hesitant about guitar center because choads predominately work there and I'm not prepared to get ripped off as well.

    Any suggestions?

    Sounds to me like a broken tweeter. A tweeter replacement is easy. However, it may not be a blown tweeter, so I would suggest taking it to someone who knows a little something about amps and play it for them.
