Rerouting a Short Section of Conduit

I was installing some in-ceiling speakers and ran into some electrical conduit. Aside from having to patch and cut a new hole, is there anyway I can reroute the small section of rigid aluminum conduit so I have the depth to install the speakers? The width of the hole is approx. 9in.

Thx in advance

In the ceiling ??!!?!?! I don't see how.

You'd need at least need to post a picture so we can see what you're are working with but in order to re-route any conduit. You need access to and the wiring would need to be pulled out first.

Wires must run from junction box to junction box without being cut or spliced. So, to reroute the conduit you'd likely have to remove much of the ceiling to gain access to replace most of the conduit and pull new wire. So, moving your speaker location is much easier.

It would be very rare to find aluminum rigid conduit in a house. Regardless, the others are right, it would be much easier to patch your 9" hole and move on rather than relocate the conduit.
