If they're new enough to be under warranty, take them back. If not and you can open the speaker, I'd just splice and solder a suitable length of speaker wire right to the internal wiring. The fewer mechancal connections, the better.

Just open the speaker

How? I can see no way to open the speaker. I've removed the bottom and all it is is a stand, the speaker part itself does not seem to have a way to open it.
