NL2FC - help, how do I take apart ?
« on: March 10, 2010, 01:51:25 am »

Hi all,

I feel really stupid in asking this but i've got an NL2FC that looks like the attached pic.. and I do not know how to dis-assemble it.

index.php/fa/28627/0/

It's a cable i've been asked to repair; i've never used this series of speakon - mine are all newer or older (and NL4 or NL8)

The trouble i'm having is getting the terminals exposed. I'm guessing that I need to do something with the grey sliding jacket but I could be wrong. I know you slide and pull when you unmate from a socket but do you still slide to get at the internals ?

These appear to be like the female jack line connectors - those are a bit counter-intuitive but once you know what you're doing you're fine.

help !

There's a little slot on the grey shell that you stick a small screw driver into and it allows you to pop the shell forward and access the terminals.

Not terribly clear, but it's a start.

Have fun, good luck.

This is the one near where it says "open push >" ?

Do you try and push that down, then get the grey thing to slide over.. while the screwdriver is still in the hole and then remove screwdriver ?

I've been trying that maneouvre for a while and figured I was going about it wrong.

Do I persist ?

Try the easy way! Step 1: Cut off NL2  Step 2: Install NL4  Problem solved. $4 will eliminate a big headache.

Ok I get it !

I'm glad it's not just me that's having trouble.

The assembly instructions are quite clear and easy to follow - but I guess they designed this plug ONLY to be assembled and never dis-assembled !

Thanks guys,
