Question about Philips HTS3450 System
Should I clip off the proprietary terminators from the speaker wire so that I can run it through the walls to the player? My wife believes this will result in a loss of sound quality.
My plan is to clip off the ends, run the wire, then try to reinsert the wire into the original proprietary ends so that they will plug into the player properly. My wife seems sure that I will screw up the job and would rather I run the wire across the floor.
Is there a better way to solve this problem?
Mine snapped open on my HTS 3440 to remove them. I then ran the wires and snapped them back on.

Even if you can find them they'll probably cost a relative fortune.

Page 13 shows the wiring scheme.
The wire itself is just glorified lamp cord. Go down to Radio Shack or the hardware store and buy 100 feet of 18-gauge lamp cord and make your own - cheap.
Maybe bring the unit down to an electronic store and see if they have any compatible ends to match the proprietary outputs.
There are a couple whole non-working SD-V55's on eBay for under $60 delivered. If you check with the sellers to make sure the have the cables maybe you can work a deal.
From what I've seen asked for proprietary cable sets, these would be bargains.
