mains cable help please

hi all, i need some help on mains cables.

I have a alpha one cable with a iec end and changed my sub for a q7000 which has a figure 8 connection. I cant use an adaptor as there is not enough room for one can i just change the end of this cable and rewire a figure 8 connection.

Why not give Darren at Clearer Audio a ring and see what he would charge to do the job.....he shouldn't be too sore on you.

a new cable from ebay or amazon will be only a few quid and will save you some time and avoid the risks related to DIY electrical work.
