    You're talkin' about the Peavey 4x10TX you're drivin' with
    a Crate BT-350 right?

    Does that crackle only happen at high volume or is it now
    a permanent thing? If it's permanent, you may need to replace
    the tweeter.

    The Peavey site appears to be down at the moment. There
    were a number of reviews of that cab tho at the B.G.R.A.
    One mentioned that the "horn" (tweeter) is a 150 watt Fostex
    will an L-pad attenuator. Maybe when your playin' loud, crank
    that L-pad for more attenuation?

    If it were me, I'd rip the dang thing out...a tweeter in a BASS cab?!? :rolleyes:
    Put a tuned port in the hole :D.

    "Driver" maybe? :D

    The horn/tweeter body should be o.k. If anything needs replacin',
    it's probably the driver. If you got the cab new, you should be
    able to take it to a Peavey service center -- click. Be sure to
    select "Service Center" (vs "Dealer") before executing a search.

    Maybe you could ask them for one with better power handling? (j/k! :) ).
