Default MB Quart RAA4200 Amp Plugs?

I've got an MB Quart RAA4200 Amp, and it has plugs that you hook your power, remote, ground, and positive/negative speaker connections to. you then plug those into your amp, rather than plugging your wires directly into terminals on the amp.

I'm looking to see if anyone has a set of these i can purchase from them.

I'm currently bidding on a set on E-Bay, but you know how bidding works I might not win. and if possible, i would like to get multiple sets to keep around, just incase!

Thanks Everyone,
Mike

Nope, that era of MB Quart amplifiers were made by Rockford Fosgate. I just got off the phone with MB Quart, they said that was the 2nd call for those plugs today (was it you?). But try Rockford Fosgate.

Picture please. If I would guess they are what is know as "Phoenix connectors". If you can get the dimensions, you can probably find a replacement from digiKey.

I just got off the phone with Rockford Fosgate, and they no longer make or stock those plugs. She said, and I quote "The only place we have seen those for a while now is eBay." So happy bidding, hopefully you win. You should post a pic of the plugs on the eBay auction, so LastResort can possibly help you.

Have a Nice Day? Still Going

Yeah, i called MB Quart First, then Rockford Fosgate (that 1st one was me ) found the one set on ebay (2plankrdelux) and have the current high bid. hopefully it all works out! i'll keep track of it...

Oh, here's that URL for the Ebay - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...129258877&rd=1

Good luck. You better stay with that, those amps are fairly rare, and consequently so too are the plugs. That amp is a BAMF, it would be a shame for it to be just a big black paper weight.

Wow, I've not had experience with MB quart amps, but that is actually a pretty cool design.

Great if you plan on building a setup that is easily removable.

It was a very smart design. Those were amazing amps, too bad Rockford didn't take notes while building them, because other than the Quart line, they haven't built amps of that quality for more than 10 years (sorry RF fans, but it's true). MB Quart was smart to cut ties with Fosgate after their short relationship, but I will miss those amps.

Yeah, the amp really is a killer. i had it powering two Infinity Kappa Perfect 10.1's and it blasted. i actually picked up a JL slash 500x1 amp for my sub now. Kappa Perfect 12.whatever the new ones are. i need to tune the amp though, i just put it in the ride last night, not optimal yet.

as for the "big black paperweight," either i'll get these plugs, or i'll jerry rig (no offense to any jerry's out there) it to work, then i'm gonna use the monster to power my door speakers!

i got the amp, now i'm locked into finishing the stereo before anything else!

Default Ahhhhh!

So, i was out bid!

i played with some more numbers and ended at $30.00 and still not winning against some Cavalier Kid! Anyway... after looking at the total and realizing i shouldn't have to pay 41.89 to buy this stuff (price with shipping) i figured i'd stop... and let mr. ToddMattPaul or what ever his Ebay Name is get his overpriced plugs! i'f i'm gonna pay that much, i might as well see what LastResort can do for me.

LastResort... the PM is being sent!

Thanks to all!

Got you're PM. Those pictures don't make them look like a standard phoenix plug. I do some looking this week, and see what I can come up with.

$40 something really isn't bad at all for all those plugs. Orion/PPI plugs (at least from a few years back, I'm unsure about current prices) sold for $20-$40 PER PLUG. It's a moot point though, seeing as how you didn't win.

Default mb quarts raa 4200

I don't mean to piss anyone off, but I lucked out on someone having 2 of these babies for sale. They obviously didn't know what they had. They had one raa 2400 model and one raa 4200 model. Both in great shape... used just a few months. The had them $30 each or $50 for both... I obviously got the both for $50. Hell of a deal.

I doubt you'll piss anyone off. This thread is from over 8 YEARS ago
