Re: So this happen last night

I wonder if you can pull the jack off, and push the broken part out?

I suppose it doesn't push all the way through. Can you see if there is a back to the tube in the top one.
Does that hexagonal shape mean that it unscrews?
You can always call customer support. They will know exactly what is necessary.

This may sound crazy but try and vacuum it out with a vacuum hose.

Re: So this happen last night

Think I would try a toothpick and a teeny drop of superglue. or perhaps a really fine drill bit. prob plastic inside the broken post.

I could be wrong but I doubt superglue will stick to the nylon and some of those connectors require a significant amount of force to pull straight out. I know I usually resort to twisting them to break the friction.

If it was mine I would remove and replace it.

This is my favorite, and easiest. If you were running both inputs before, then using a 2-female to 1-male Y-Adapter will get you the same results.

Be very careful brandishing that drill! There's a solder joint somewhere on the other side!

I also favor this solution, but be prepared to brandish a soldering iron.

The only thing using both l/r inputs will do(to my knowledge) is raise the input gain. No practical reason to do that. Also the black one looks like it's LFE input. I would think that's the one he should use as it should bypass the subs internal X/O. Unless of course it's being used intentionally.
Btw Lou. Really good to see you out here.

May not increas the input gain at all. That use to be more common, but most subs now days don't get the bump.

Is it on your KK?
