SOURCE: need wiring and 9pin connector diagram

Dell (Altec Lansing) A425 Subwoofer Pinouts

This is a standard female DB-9 serial port.
Here are the pinouts.

Pin 1 = Left Speaker Out +

Pin 2 = Left Speaker Out - (Common Ground)

Pin 3 = Left Line In +

Pin 4 = Right Line In +

Pin 5 = Left/Right line In - (Common Ground)

Pin 6 = Right Speaker Out +

Pin 7 = Right Speaker Out - (Common Ground)

Pin 8 = Power A

Pin 9 = Power B

Jumper (short) Power A to B to turn on.
If you want a volume control you need to put one on the inputs. You will buy buy a stereo volume control or potentiometer.
Here is some info on how to do this.

SOURCE: Simple question?? how do I connect my Panasonic subwoofer to my denon receiver?

I have a very similar problem with the same exact Panasonic sub. I went to Best Buy and Radio Shack looking for an adapter, and they basically told me that one does not exisit. Apparently, Panasonic designed the home theater system specifcally so that it could not work if any part of the entire system was ever seperated.

SOURCE: Replacing Panasonic SA-HT500 with Newer Model that has HDMI Input

ANY amp will be ok, as long as the wattage of your new amp does not exceed the wattage of your speakers. Otherwise you could overdrive your speakers and damage them. First clue, if you turn up the volume and the speakers start to shut off and on you are pushing too much power to them.

SOURCE: Receiver cannot recognize subwoofer

As I implied earlier, take a clue from the physical style of connectors for both parts of the subwoofer function in the old and new receivers:

RCA connections are for Line Level signal between components only.

The input (bare wire) at the speaker is for AMPLIFIED signal.

You can't just modify one to fit the other and expect magic to happen. Be glad you didn't do it the other way around and modify an amplified (speaker level) outout into a Line Level input. You likely would have smoked that component.

Your subwoofer is a passive speaker, that is, like any other speaker it needs an amplifier. Many subs are self-powered (amp built-in) and they would mate well with the RCA sub output of the receiver.

Get yourself an Active (self-amplified) Subwoofer and run UN-MODIFIED RCA cables to it, according to its instructions, from the Sub Out of the receiver. Or get an amplifier between your receiver and the sub you have.

How do i connect a set of Harmon Karden HK695-01 speakers to a Macbook Pro Mid 2010


HI Marc
Follow the steps below
Step 1:
Connect the green connector from the subwoofer into the headphone jack on the laptop, the black connector is not used, leave the rubber cap on the black connector to prevent static from the pin grounding on the system.
Step 2:
Plug the orange connector from the right/control satellite into the orange jack on the subwoofer.
Step 3:
Plug the brown connector from the left satellite into the brown jack on the subwoofer.
Step 4:
Plug the AC plug of the HK 965 into the wall outlet
Step 5:
Turn on the speaker set and adjust the volume accordingly.
PS: Do not Forget to adjust the Laptop volume also to minimize Distortion. Enjoy!

I don't really understand what you want to do. The DVD player in the Home Theater, you don't want to use or doesn't work? In any case, the sub needs to be hooked up to the Panasonic, not the TV. The Panasonic doesn't have an HDMI out? If you let me know just what you're trying to do and why, I can be of actual help. I will also need to know what connectors are available to you, and on which unit.

My MacBook's audio still on even when harman Kardon speakers are connected to the computer.(Original version with USC connectors).


As I seem to recall the very first version was powered by the computer and as such may not be compatible with your Mac. I may be thinking of Apple's Clear speakers though? Do your HK Soundsticks have a power adapter or AC cord?

I have the SB-HW950 subwoofer and teh SC-PT950 speakers and I just purchased a Denon Receiver to replace my DVD/ receiver player. So now I have SC-PT950 speakers playing through the Denon but for some...


Yes, the old Panasonic SC-PT950 did drive the subwoofer by its own amp, such as it was.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Panasonic-SC-PT950-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/2869dj183/t/2/

It's never a good idea to adapt prescribed connectors to bare speaker wire or vice versa.

Speaker Level and Line Level signals are worlds apart and equipment damage may result. Your Denon (model unknown) probably requires a POWERED SUBWOOFER, to which it would provide Line Level LFE from its Pre Out.

Read the manual where it doesn't say to convert a speaker wire to RCA.

Please Help ....i have Bose Acoustimass 10, 5.1 system connected


Usually the LFE out is only a line out and is not amplified in any way, so first of all is your subwoofer self amplified or not? Cause if not, the LFE output won't be of much use to you. So if it's not self amplified you need an new amplifier to put between the receiver and the subwoofer. Any amp that supports RCA line-in input will do. Even a car stereo amplifier will work provided you can get a 12volt power supply to run it in the house. If the subwoofer is self amplified though, then all you need is to make an adapter cause none are readily available in stores to go from a RCA connector to 2 wires. You can buy a virgin RCA connector that you can wire yourself at The Source, Circuit City, or any electronics store you have locally, or if you have an old RCA to RCA wire you don't need anymore, you can just cut it in half, strip the 2 wires and you got you adapter right there.

Sc-ht500 system cable


You cannot wire this system separately, since it is very difficult to separate the power cables from the others which carry the audio parts.if in any case , lets suppose, you could wire the dvd player separetely, you will have no audio since all the audio frequencies are transfered in this cable to the sub woofer and from there to the satellite speakers.
It would be useless to wire it even if we could as there would never be any audio, only video, no matter what disc you use as the only way the audio is comming is throught this system cable to the subwoofer. Actually its the worst idea to implement in a home cinema system, but well, this is old panasonic.. :)
