Default Need help with PCB crimp connectors

I'm looking at a friend's Hartke HA4000. I'd like to pull the small board that hosts the output jacks, but I can't seem to remove the connector blocks that connect it electrically to the other boards.

Most of the other connector blocks in the amp have both a male and female part and so separate easily, but these don't want to budge; I managed to pry one partially out (a couple mm) and it looks like the crimp connectors go through the holes in the board, instead of sliding on to pins as I had expected...

Can someone lend some advice as to how to disconnect these connectors? Are the designed to even be removed?

It sounds to me as if the connectors are direct wire to PCB connectors. It is possible that the other end is a removable, alternatively, you will need to de-solder the connector which might be difficult as the crimps might actually grip the board.
