How To Remove Bare Speaker Wire Strips From Within AV Receiver Speaker Terminals

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello

The speaker wire was poorly terminated. Loose speaker wire strips are within the speaker terminal.

What is the best way to remove all those bare speaker wire strips from within the av receiver's speaker terminal?

The av receiver is the RX-V673.

Please see a photos of the av receiver at the following official link: http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio-visual/av-receivers-amps/rx/rx-v673_black_u/?mode=model

The speaker terminals are the Yamaha type that have a knob that can be tightened and loosened. However, the know doesn´t seems to come off completely. The speaker terminals can receive banana plugs.

Thanks.

Just FYI: these are simply typical 5 way binding posts...nothing really proprietary about them.

Although you cannot back the screw-down portion of the post all the way off, can you at least get enough space where you can utilize a small needle nose pliers or even a small flat head screwdriver to remove what remains? Of course ensure the unit is unplugged, whatever route you choose.

You could also try a strong magnet.

Bit of an odd problem I must say. I've never had speaker connect THAT onerous to remove.

Compressed Air should do the trick.

If you mean the cheap spring clip terminals then you'll pull the wire out with needlenose pliers. Please unplug the unit first!!!!!!!
