Hello,

Bought an XLS2500 from Guitar Center a few months ago. I haven't pressed it into service yet as I have some more equipment to buy. I just noticed tonight that the binding posts have what appear to be small plastic domes that prevent me from plugging banana plugs into them. But the manual says it accepts banana plugs. Is there a way to remove these small plastic domes?

Many thanks,
JGG

Thanks for the link! I did try to pry it out with a soldering aid (metal ice pic sort of implement) but I didn't want to break it, so I went easy on it. I'll use your drywall screw approach.

Thanks again!
