HiFonics Boltar VIII harness
I have an old Boltar amp, looking to find the wiring harness/plugs for it.

I see some listed on Ebay, but they look nothing like what I need.

I'll be in contact with a Hifonics Thor VIII today at a local shop (its for sale likely) and its got a decent plug. I'll snap you a picture if it helps at all.

Thanks.. Any markings on it? or part numbers? It is probably an AMP or similar part, maybe I can find it that way?

Looks like the power harness on this one is missing, someone just rigged them up?

Maybe one of these will work.
Digi-Key - ED1720-ND (Manufacturer - EDZ950/5)

There are 2 pin spacings. One is 5mm, the other is 5.08mm (0.2"). Order the one with the correct spacing.

Could be.. Maybe Dr. Z could measure his for me?? This of course is just the speaker one, I still need to figure out the power connector.

Thanks again Perry!

No numbers. My thumb is about 1" wide. The plug is probably smaller than adequate even for this thor amp. Theres a chance maybe the Boltar amp uses a bigger plug? it just seems small to me, smaller than what PPI or Orion used to use.

If it were me and I had to guess, I'd buy the plug with 0.2" spacing as this is an american amp. 5mm may not work :)

Yea the pictured Thor amp has power hard-wired.

I may just try and replace the connectors with something else then.. I was concerned that it may hurt the resale value (if I ever decide to sell), but it is worthless the way it is now!

If you don't have a dial caliper, use a DIP IC. If the pins on the board line up perfectly with every-other pin, it's 5.08mm. If it's not a perfect match, it's likely 5mm.

You also may wanna try contacting ZED AUDIO to see if he has some plugs for sale..
