    I don't see how a cucaracha caused that damage.

    I used to repair some electronic equipment with a lot of similarities to audio gear. From time to time they came in absolutely infested with those nasty things. Not once did they cause anything close to the damage you have.

    Your sub amp, like many others, is known for cooking itself. The roach just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    I suggest you look into buying a different sub and definitely call an exterminator.

    When I bring speakers with port holes into my cottage, they get a blast of "Bengal" bug killer up their pipe hole. :D
    I might even stuff a big rag in the hole afterwards also.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    FYI, water bugs are one of the two species of cockroaches, they are Oriental roaches.
