Where can I buy Carver Platinum Amazing Terminal Cups?

Post by megasat16 » Thu Dec 18, 2008 12:05 am

Please let me know where can I buy the replacement terminal cup for the Platinum Amazing Speaker? The Platinum Amazing I am looking to acquire looks great with the exception of the broken speaker binding post terminal cup in one speaker.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I know that some members on here have replaced the plastic cup with an aluminium plate that will last forever. They actually have some anodized aluminium plates available online in several colors including black, blue and gold.

There is no direct replacement available. As they are junk anyway, that's no loss. The metal plate choice is the best idea.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Thanks everyone for sharing your carver knowledge. It sucks there is no replacement for the easiest replaceable part. Well, the anodized aluminum or metal will works for me too. Any suggestion on where to get the metal plates?

The speaker I am looking to acquire is from eBay and I've done business with him before and the purchase went well for me last time. I am sure it'll be another good deal this time around.

Thanks again!
James
