    So after a long weekend, and a three hour gig on Sunday night, i was quite anxious to get home and rest. So I unplug the speaker cables from the amp, and pull the 410 off of the 18. Being out of it (and to be honest, not used to a separate setup rig) The speaker cable is kind of dragging while I muscle the heavy xlt outsdide.

    I must have stepped on the cable (which is a red and black banana plug) and ripped the gold connector from the amp base. I have the pieces, and I attempted to screw it back it. I haven't tested it it yet, but I have the feeling that the banana plug connector needs to be clean.
    :help:
    So if I need to replace the piece, what do I need to do to get it/where should I go? would like to get this fixed and proper soon. I'll try to get photos up tomorrow. Thanks for any advice. I'm a kluz sometimes and I need to make up for it with a solid repair...

    ..(and a real amplifier setup.)

    just for kicks, I'd like to let you know that I'm running these beautiful eden cabs with a measly gk backline 300 watt amp. I know it's pathetic,(laughing is understandable) so if can help me out with finding a wt800/eden power/pre for the right price, props. until then, I need to be able to make ends meet.
    ciao.

    I broke one of those connectors in my 210XLT.... They are quite fragile.
    I bought a replacement part from an electronics supply store.
    Very easy to fix.

    Are these the jacks that I would need? this website describes them as this:
    DUAL BINDING POST
    .75" CENTER TO CENTER SPACING
    1 Black 1 Red

    simple enough right?
    4 bucks and an easy fix yea?

    If i can recall, I took that thing apart so each plug could be individually put into the backplate of the cab.
    Take out the broken ones and have a look.
    screws...it really is all very simple and straightforward
