    AMPEG won't even sell you a replacement, HA...

    Yeah rip the thing out. Then step on it...

    Dont forget to block the hole.

    See asked for help and got it. If you can't bare to step on it, send it to me and I will for you.

  3. I have the same amp...first thing I did was diconnect the tweeter. IMO bass amps should NOt have tweeters.

    I'll save you the tweeter editorializing, and say if Ampeg said to get it, it should be fine.

    Stupid question, but how exactly did you disconnect the tweeter? Did you just clip the wires?

    I suppose you could do that...

    I removed the tweeter screws, pulled the tweeter out and just removed one of the wires off the tweeter. I then taped it to the other wire so that it wouldn't fall and short something.

    I think you'll find that most Ampeg BA115 owners unhook the tweeter, because of the amp's tendency to hiss excesively.

    Yeah I noticed the hissing on mine as well, which is why I asked.

    EDIT: Just did the mod, and WOW it sounds like a new amp! Thanks for the tip!

    I had to disconnect the tweeter on the BA115 that I used to own. Went in through the whole in the back pulled the wire connectors from the tweeter and taped them up. No more hiss.
     
  9. no ampeg should have a tweeter.
