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?
Don't waste effort with phillips take system back get better one then put the effort to make the perfect quality sound dynamics in your room, none of our phillips systems work after 8 months and warranty work is non existant.......sorry

The Bose speakers with the cubes and bass module are all interconnected with a proprietary cable available from Bose, if lost you get a replacement by called 1-800-444-BOSE.
When you connect the speakers all wires run from the receiver to the base module first, then out to each of the speakers. All terminals on the bass module are labeled.
The Bose cubes are all identical and can be used in the front or back positions.
Try to keep them at ear level or aimed at the listening position for best sound.
Actually, you don't need the adapters. All you need are conductive posts of the same diameter as the plug openings.
I just chopped up some large paper clips and attached them to the end of a piece of speaker wire, then inserted the paper clip 'posts' into the adapter openings, and attached the other end of wire to the speakers (forming a kind of bridge).
And viola! Worked perfectly! It takes a little effort, but is much less time consuming then hunting down antiquated proprietary plugs and costs nothing!
It is NOT the CPU fan! There is a heatsink over the northbridge chipset adjacent to the CPU. The clip that supplies pressure to maintain contact between the northbridge and the heatsink has detached on one or both ends. There are wire loops at each end of the clip which feed into the motherboard. When the clip detaches (solder failure), it pops the loop out of the motherboard. The BIOS recognizes this condition as a heatsink failure, hence the error message.
Don't do it. The all-in-one box systems are not designed for modifications, hence the proprietary and prohibitive connectors. No more, no less than the supplied speakers. The amps are actually way more modest in power than the advertising hype would have you believe. If you do figure out a way to run more speakers in parallel you do so at the risk of damaging something.
Just go to Radio Shack and buy some RCA jacks, the length of wire that you need and a soldering iron. Those inexpensive extension cords (12 and 15 foot) at the dollar store make good speaker wire, as copper is better. Just cut off the ends. Speaker wire from an electronics store is expensive.
If you decide to go to Radio Shack or similar store, the clerk should be able to explain everything to you, if not, run, don't walk to another store. You will eventually find someone to help you. If you don't know how to solder, just go to google and type in "how to solder". I'm sure you'll get plenty of hits.
Ok, after A LOT of internet research I could not find any solution. So I decided to do a "chop suey" connection.
Went to Radio Shack and bought ... Insulated Grip 2-1/4"Alligator Clips w/screw terminals 10 (five red & five black)
(A smaller alligator clip can be used if you have a soldering iron to connect the wires.)
30-Ft. 18-Gauge Clear 2-Conductor Speaker Wire
It cost about $15 for everything. Be sure to have electrical tape as well.
Stripped speaker wires to fit through each alligator clip and twisted it around the screw terminals of clip. Tapped screw terminal to cover wiring. Do this for 2 black and 2 red clips.
To install l laid the TV on its back and insterted each alligator clip to firmly fit on each terminal. Because the clips are large it will be a tight next to each other. Be sure to test one line and speaker first before completed the second line and speaker.
