I have DEPO P46's with CCFL angel eyes I bought from Khoalty about 4 years ago. While everything works perfectly, my inverters have gone bad from time to time. 2 years after installation, one of them went out. I emailed Khoa and had two replacement inverters sent to me. Another year later, the other side went bad and I used my last replacement inverter. Recently, one side has gone out again. I do not have any other replacements and it seems to me like the trend is to go with LED AE's. I do not want to do this because it seems to me like the CCFL's are fused to the headlight housing and frankly, I don't have time to mess with it.

I ordered a pair of new inverters from eBay and it looks like everyone on this forum is recommending ones that look like this: http://www.xenonplanet.com/ccfl-angel-eyes-inverter
Unfortunately, I bought these and realized two things: The ground and (+) ends are considerably smaller than would fit in the harness which isn't an issue because I can clamp them tighter. The biggest issue is that the output from my angel eyes look like they have two prongs (male) and the input into the inverter is two prongs (male). So I cannot use them. I need the inverter that has an input that is kind of like diamond-shaped with two inputs (female).

This link is a picture of what I am looking for. If there is anyone that can help me, please PM or post! Thanks so much!
