I've got two Lexicon LX-7 amps here that I just finished repairing and want to use the trigger, but I have no idea what this trigger plug's male terminator is called or what to look for. Does anyone know what it is and/or have a part number for it? It measures 12.35mm x 8.5mm on the outside (in case you can't see it in the pics.











Thanks!

I believe that's a 2-pin Phoenix / Euroblock connector.

I believe this should work: https://amzn.to/382I16H

They usually come in green. It's not uncommon to see HT or other equipment that's all black with the green connectors on the back. Wink

Yeah, the only difference I see is that the male and female on those have a small short flat bit after the rounded parts of the plugs. Mine is just rounded. Still could easily be it.

I need to order other parts, so I'll probably grab a couple at Mouser because they are cheaper there and I only need two.

I have to look at the specs a bit more to be sure.

Fingers crossed you made it easy for me Smile

Kind regards,
craigr

I'm not sure, the dimensions don't look quite right Neutral

Good point - there are probably different types/styles with some differences in how they can be locked. Not sure. It's been a long time since I've used or seen any. Good luck!

Those are commonly used for HTIB, in fact that's what we call them Home Theater In Box connectors. Hit a thrift store I bet you'll find a Samsung or LG all in one DVD/Bluray with speakers that use those.

So do you think we are all talking about the same kind of plug? I'm finding the datasheet rather cryptic Confused One would think they could just have a simple drawling with dimensions.

Thanks again and kind regards,
craigr

My Lexicon MC12 has a small single block of these at the back for 12V amp triggers so I'd guess it's the same plug type on the LX7 as it's from the same era. Each plug is 5mm wide and I'd bet it's the female header one you linked to above.

Thanks! The measurements are helpful. The more I look the more I think Kal has the correct male terminator.

But why oh why are they only in green now Laughing

I may wind up trying a thrift store just because I don't feel like paying the excessive shipping for a few parts. That said, I need to order other components so I should really start my next list and get it all at once.

Thanks again for the tip,
craigr
