8030A tweeter gone

Youngling Viestejä: 1 Liittymispäivä: 24.6.2020 Viimeisimmät viestit

This is my first post, so hi everybody and great to see an active support community for great products. 
Unfortunately, what brought me here is an issue with one of my 8030As which I had bought used earlier this year and have greatly enjoyed ever since.

After not using them for a day, I noticed that one tweeter is completely gone - clearly audibly when I compare with the second speaker using a mono signal.
Also putting my ear directly to the tweeter leaves 0 doubt: It's not doing anything. Only the woofer is working (and seems just fine).

I cannot recall a particular event that might have caused this.
Now, is there anything that can be done from my side? Any fuses that might be blown that would affect only the tweeter or it's amp?
Anything that I can do to narrow down the cause of the problem (I'm not a specialist, but have some experience with opening up and fixing things).
Of course if there is no other way I would bring them to an authorised dealer (I'm in Barcelona) but I still have some hope that I can avoid that. 

Any help would be gladly appreciated,
thanks in advance!




edit: I mistakenly stated it was an 8030bpm, but it's actually an 8030A, now corrected
