How to remove Bose speaker cable plug

by Knut22D / November 2, 2011 5:51 AM PDT

Hi I have recently moved into a new house and have pre-installed tubes in the walls to have hidden speaker cables to my Bose system, Bose LIfestyle 48.

The problem is that the tubes are too narrow so the cables with connector/plugs at the end of the cable is too big to go through then tube.
Anyone experienced the same problem?
I guess I have to remove the plug so that I only send then cable through then tube, but didn't want to cut the cable before getting an advice..
Is it possible to solve this without cutting the cable?, maybe disconnect the plug at the speaker side?
Anyone done this before?

Thanks, Knut. Oslo , Norway

Disconnect at the speaker side, then pull back through

That's what I would do.

Thanks, but how do I disconnect it ?

By pressing something sharp and thin in one of the small holes?
I have tried to pull out the black connector in the middle of the plug, but it's stuck..

If the connectors . . .

are molded together, or will not release, you just have to cut the cable. Leave at least 8" of cable on the connector end so you can splice it back together.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
