Hard to capture this, but the component in front of the Wire here is broken, one of the legs is separated from the body.


Also, in this pic here the wire bundle.. Are these Speaker outs? 2 are wire nutted to some 10ga wire (as speaker outs), the other 2 aren anything. Is that another channel not being used?

Also, while it's being fixed, I'm going to have new Power and ground wires soldered on.

Is this going to be retarded spendy??
Thanks!!

well before you go changing parts, you need to find out why there was failure, what caused the actual physical damage

I would have no idea. Bought it this way. I'm also not "changing parts", I'm having it dome by a pro.

if its still operable throughout its whole power range then i would imagine it wouldnt be expensive at all, if having it shipped,shipping will prob be more than actual repair
