Car audio amp repair
I'm looking for a set of RCA input jacks to replace the ones on an old Kenwood amp. I can unsolder the old one to replace it. Does anyone know where I can get a part like that? Thanks.

Should be as simple as RadioShack unless it's a non-standard pin configuration... I say pull it and take it down to the store and see if they have one that matches.
I looked at Radio Shack online and it didn't show one. Yes, I should just unsolder it and go down there. Are there any other electronics suppliers?
It seems like most of their stuff is out of stock. Nothing looks like it in their in stock items. Here is what I need:
WTF? May be better off getting a new amp. Might sound better too.
Don't think your going to find something that is an exact match. Ebay? Maybe even find a broken amp for parts?
The amp is a Kenwood KAC-1021. It's possibly the king of all old school amps with 840 watts per channel RMS at .08thd. It has 2 fans, 2 power connections, 2 ground connections and 4 fuses. It was $1000 when new. So there is no replacement and it's certainly worth fixing. They don't make them like they used to. I just need that little piece.
take it to a repair shop. May cost in the $150-300 range to fix depending on it there is other issues since it looks to be burnt on the input
Old school Kenwoods are worth their weight in gold. In the mid 90s I had my entire system running Kenwoods and they just did not quit. It never went into protect or shutdown like other brands did. And, they played clean and were very underrated power wise. Keep that sucker going!!!

Thank you Bigal470
Another option is using an inline connector instead of the panel mount.
Solder a few inches of wire and let `em dangle.
And GOOD FOR YOU for being able to fix your own. Many props my tech bruthah!
People who junk good ol' electronics and send another job to China deserve as much respect as those who let crappy oil-change places wrench their rides.
why,yes.yes it does.
Since this amp has a DIN input as well...
You can buy this cable and make your own DIN to RCA....

Damn you found him exactly what he needs lol :P wutta great guy you are!!!!!!!
Wow. Those are all great suggestions. Problem with the ebay plug mentioned by mighty noid is that it has 3 prongs and for some reason the Kenwood one has 4. Might be able to make it work anyway. If not, I could just get a plug and let it dangle. Thank you.
