Default Blast from the past. How do I fix this?

When this sonic impact first came out i bought this one and enjoyed it for a year. I run it with a 6DJ8 tube pre-amp into a pair of eWaves. It sounded great.

I put it away for the last 10 years -/+ but setting up a new garage and setting it up as my garage system.

The speaker connect is broken and id like to do more than duct tape.

Any suggestions?

Obvious question, have you tried popping it back into place?

Oh, that's a bummer.. Seriously though those connectors are not the greatest (aka cheesy) so it might be an opportunity to install a set of inexpensive binding posts in their place.

I know those well, it's annoying when the end result doesn't meet expectations, and worse when well, it's worse.. LOL
