Hi Friends, some more help needed. My newly acquired 105.2 came with a broken input terminal, as in the pics.
Please advice how to go about this & what all do I need to make it perfect.






I intend taking them to a speaker shop tomorrow itself. Do guide on what else I should look for in the inside as the only way I think to fix the terminal is by opening the woofer.
Please correct me if wrong.
Regards,
Dev

Look for 4mm terminals on ebay for a self fix, but do not pay the silly prices idiots want for original RS type LS3/5a ones.

Yes, get to them through the woofer hole, but pay attention to the screw tightness and try to copy the original tightness putting it back. The torque was set at the factory for correct bass response and colouration from cabinet transmission.

Thanks a ton for the valuable guidance, but please elaborate on the position of the screw as it came from the factory as It may have been disturbed in this case. My speakers are lacking in the bass reproduction.
Kindly help.
