Hi guys,
I also have a podless set of Z-5500 (spring-clip vers.)
I bought a Pioneer receiver and hooked up the satellites from this set, and they are working great.
Now I need to connect the receiver to the amplifier on the sub.
By looking at the previous pin-outs, the SUB+ has to go to PIN2 and the SUB- to PIN13. SUB+ and SUB- are from the cable between the receiver and the sub.
I was thinking of drilling a hole in the back of the sub and install an RCA connector for this cable.

Then I will have to check the signal that comes from the receiver for the sub, for this connection, cause if it's too loud I might have to install a pot.

There is also a few more pins that need to be connected.
From previous posts I understand that PIN6 must be connected to PIN13 to turn the amp on.
Then PIN7 must be connected to PIN13 to unmute the Left,Right and Sub channels.
There is also PIN8 that when connected to PIN13 it does unmute for the Center channel. If that is true I will not bother with it.
Now, for these PIN6,PIN7 links to PIN13, I was thinking of installing an ON/OFF switch on the sub.

This is all I'm thinking of doing and I hope all goes well.
Does it seem right?
I gathered information from all previous posts, but there are 4 types of Logitech systems being discussed in this thread: Z-5500 (spring-clip vers), Z-5500 (RCA vers), Z-5450 and Z-5300.
A little bit confusing...

Hello Guys,

After TWO Creative G550W with problems, I Have changed to Z-5500. But again other PROBLEM. The Z-5500 doesn't turn on.

I have checked the fuse and it's ok.

But when I check 8V Line (Pin 10), the value is ZERO. But I can't figure out which components are present to delivery 8V line. I see two wires (blue) coming to a capacitor (0.1uF) with a AM152 (Rectifier bridge ?).

Anybody can help me?

Sorry for my english.

Thanks,
Miguel

Hey FinderRO,

How is the sound quality when connected the receiver, is there a noticable difference than previously via the buildin Z5's amp.

Cheers!
