    if u push against it, is it firm? if so, carefully drill into it with a tiny drill bit, then use half a matchstick with glue. that'll do it

    Thanks for all the suggestions!

    I think I will try to drill it first, then the glue to pull it out. Will post back if it works or I completely **** up my amp and need to buy a new one (or just never have sound to the front right speaker again!).

    Cheers fellas.

    You could try carefull drilling into the bit with a 1-1.5mm PCB drill then glue summit slim inside - like a paperclip.


    well, you did say matchstick, so I'll give you credit this time..

    one more idea..but could **** it....clean a soldering iron...heat the female part around the broken bit and have the amp on its end. then tap the conenctor. the connector bay expand and lose its grip slightly.

    C'mon, would you do that if it was your amp?

    place it in a centrifuge with the connector bay facing out, and spin it up to 5Gs. Then drill a hole into a matchstick, and apply some super glue to the soldering iron and it'll come right out.
