    Hey. i have a avatar 2x10 with a peavey mark IV, and ive been using it for over a year and now its been giving me problems. it makes a little crackle noise, its gotten worse lately.here is what ive narrowed it down to...

    I recently broke my tone knob
    I was runing the head flat out into the cab, so i know i could have hurt it
    One of my cables its bad

    i only have one bass, and one head, so i cant really swap and try new ones.

    any ideas?

    the cord and the possibly blown speaker are good ideas, as is faulty electronics in your bass. Unfortunately none of us are divine, so you have to schlep you gear to a store so you can try it with other gear to find out what's broken.
