    There is a broken terminal on the back of this Mitsubishi amp. I want to replace both sets of speaker terminals. The originals are pure junk so I'll do them all. Dimensions are (per L/R channel pairs) 2 5/8"W X 3/4" H. It looks to be a panel snap-in affair but I can cut metal to fit. I'm thinking I need rather small terminals. Suggestions?

    Well, thanks again to you and Miss Sophia!
    I'll be ordering up the smaller ones, this week. Since I picked up the amp and it's matching preamp/tuner in my neighbors "free" pile, the cost of a few binding posts and the labor (mine) is inconsequential.

    I think Digikey handles Pomona so I'll start there for sourcing.

    Get gold plated ones, the surface of non gold plated ones might oxidized and doesn't make as good contact.

    You don't have to pay an arm or a leg for these connectors. I did extensive THD test on the connection between the amp and speakers, the major bottle neck is the speaker cable, that's where you want to spend the most money, not the connectors. Just gold plated connectors are plenty good, save the money for the cables.
