Rockford P4004 Terminal blocks
 
Is there a replacement part for these without going through a service center? This the black style, not the barrel style of the old amps. 8 position for the speakers and 3 for power entry. I don't think Rockford will sell these to end users, any ideas. The previous owner twisted two screws off and the heads are all goobered up. I didn't see any markings on the housings either.

Pacific Coast Parts is now a Rockford parts distributor. orders@pacparts.com is their E-Mail address.

In some, you can replace the screws. See if the top cap will pop off like the one in the attached image.

I haven't purchased any but I did inquire about them and they were available at one time. You'll likely have to go through pacparts to get them.

Looking under better light I found the markings, the power entry is a Wiedmuller LX 15 and the speaker block is Beau 97. Those are common companies shouldn't be a problem to get parts now.

Update
 
Power entry; Weidmuller LX 15.00/90, can only find it in gray, this isn't a big deal for me.

Speaker output; Beau Series 97, now Molex 39970. This part isn't an exact match, it doesn't stand as tall which is a problem. Looking at the Rockford part it looks like a custom mold was done, you can see where the plastic was extended.

We'll see what pacparts comes back with or just replace the screws and call it good.

If you decide to replace them, you should consider using ChipQuik solder. In some of these, the terminals fold over at the top (it's not a straight terminal) and get soldered to the top of the board also. It's difficult to remove enough solder to pull the block out without doing any damage. With the CQ alloy, you can get/keep the terminals hot enough to allow the removal of the block without having to remove all of the solder.
