So, driving the corolla home, go over a big hump and the sub cuts out.
Turns out the tip of the RCA has snapped off in the amp.
I have no freaking clue how to get it out, I was thinking I might put a dot of superglue on some welding wire and try to get it out this way.
Any ideas? Anyone had this happen before?

Some broken centre RCA connectors can be pushed out from the other side if you can get the Amp opened. If not then you might be up for a new connector. Usually common items found at Jaycar / Altronics.

The amps mounted up under a custom parcel shelf and the subs jammed in there, you have to take out the seat to get the sub out so I just got up in there with some picks and dug some of it out. Wasn't working for me so I found a screw that fit in there and screwed it into the broken part. This didn't work either.
So I got all bush mechanix on it and dug as much out as i could, put a new plug on the lead. Cut some of the male bit off and jammed it in.
And it works and has continued to work just fine since. So dodgy repair yes. But for my daily rollabox worked just fine.
Thanks for te advice guyS
