SOURCE: Wiring into walls
Okay, here's the verdict. No such din connector for the Bose AM15's exist. I thought I would take another look to see if anything had changed since I had looked last. Once again, all is the same and it makes using standard wiring a pain. However, it is possible to do what you want to do, which I assume is a nice clean install. I have rigged many of these systems, and, here's what I do.
First, the biggest pain is the 25' LFE cable. Shortening it is a pain because the wires are thin and dificult to splice. Lengthening it isn't a great idea either because you want to keep the cables as short as possible. However, a lesser of 2 evils exist and that is to keep this cable whole. Before you begin, peel the LFE cable from the buch untill it is separated from the bundle. Next, peel the speaker wire for each speaker so the pos and neg for each speaker is together, but, separated from the bundle. Then you'll place the sub where you intend it to go, plug in the 13 pin din (I even looked at vga options...nada) and stretch the cable to the wall and cut one speaker wire at a time (+ and -) being CAREFULL to mark which wire is positive and which is negative after the cut. DO NOT cut the LFE cable, and make sure you give yourself an extra foot or so before you cut the wires.
Once the cuts are complete and you have labeled pos and neg for each wire, you may strip the wire and plug into your regular speaker wire wall plate (banana or clips). On the reverse side of the plate, attatch the pos and neg to the plates making sure everything is consistant. Then, run the wires to your receiver (or vise versa). Regular speaker wires typically distingush pos from neg through some sort of marking on the wire housing.
The other cable you will run is the sub (LFE cable). If you want to just drill a hole in the wall and stuff the cable in and run it to the receiver, that's one way, but if you want to keep it clean, use a single RCA connection wall plate. Then, to minimize loss of LFE sound, run a TV coaxial cable from the sub to the receiver and terminate both ends with RCA terminators.
Once the wires are run to the receiver, double check that all the speakers are hooked into the sub and the wiring is complete. Take a AA battery and mark the location of the speaker that corresponds to the wire. In other words, with the speaker wire, hold one end to one side of the battery and the other end tap lightly to the other side of the battery. You will hear a crackle or pop locating the speaker the wire goes to. Once this is identified, label the wire and plug into the appropriate output making sure the pos and neg are consistant.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so, I drew a diagram and will attach it to this forum asap. Good luck and have a blast!

There is a CAT5/RJ45 A-Bus interface on the back of the HK AVR 435. That needs to connect to your A-BUS "hub". HK has two hub products: ABH-4000 and ABH-4 (older). Then CAT5 cable can be run from this hub to Wall-installed room-specific controls. HK has the AB-2 product, but any ABus compatible wall control will work. From the wall control, you wire regular audio cable to the speakers. So, some of the questions/issues to solve are: where do the existing wires go that are connected to the in-wall speakers? Typically that location is where to place your in-wall volume and source controls. Then the CAT5 gets wired from those controls back to the hub. And all that's required is a single CAT5 from the AVR to the Hub.

SOURCE: I need the wiring diagram
There are just 4 wires connecting in that jack: 2 grounds and 2 hot. You can identify them yourself directly either just by looking at the rear pins (where and how they are soldered on the board) after you remove the back cover, or by testing them with an ohmmeter (to the metal side of the jack): the 2 ground wires will show 0, the empty ones will show infinite and the hot ones will show 0 in the moment when you connect it then the resistance will grow fast toward infinite (if after that you reverse the polarity of the test wires you will get initially a negative resistance).

Each speaker has two 4 Ohm drivers. Each speaker has a connector with 4 pins. From left to right they are + - - +. Say 1 2 3 4 . If you want a 8 Ohm speaker connect 2 and 4 together. Now 1 goes to your amplifier (+) and 3 to your amplifier (-). In yor case join black with blue. Now red goes to the amplifier red and green to the amplifier black.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker
system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite
box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
