Stereo Tube amp driving r/l Tweeters ?

How to replace hardwired stock power cord ?
Unfortunately, there’s no, "standard" size for IEC connectors, so no one makes knockout punches, for those animals(to my knowledge, at least). Some rectangular punches are available, but- the prices typically aren’t realistic for limited usage(ie:...
