Unhappy My Dog chewed my sub-woofer.

It was between the power core and the wall. It's a Paradigm PS-1000 if that has any bearing. Any suggestions? I had a stroke so I cannot solder any more.

Ow! Sorry about the stroke, that is difficult to say the least. My suggestion: can you explain more what is damaged? What are the symptoms?
P.S. Next time don't leave your homework by the subwoofer!

You could butt splice and shrink wrap if you are still able to do that.

Please tell us, more clearly what the dog chewed. I'm imagining the power cord, but that would be very simple repair. (Soldering would be best, maybe requiring less strength than wire nuts.)

That's a simple repair. If you can't do it yourself because of health reasons, I hope that you have a friend who can assist. (Maybe whoever helped you move the sub?) It won't require a lot of skill.

Was the sub unplugged at the time of the chewing? Having trouble figuring out how the dog survived that bit of handiwork.

Just one more upgrade and things will be perfect.
