The image is not from my system
My resistor has burned and i can't see the colors
I was hoping that someone that has this system tell me the resistor value or colors
But thanks for reply.

Default A bit of Help


My name is Xavi, I'm from Spain and I don't speak English very well; I hope you have a little bit of patience for me .

I have a Logitech z5500 with PID = R544 (with NO RCA read the subwoffer; the speakers are connected by wires directly).

My control center (POD) isn't working, I looked into this and I have found a chip Cirrus Logic CS42526 "burned". My POD is always "Detecting..." on the display .

I have searched a LOT by the internet to How to connect my PC to the subwoffer without using any POD. I have read a little bit this topic, but it's difficult to me to assimiler all the things. And i looked that you have post the PIN wires for RCA subwoffer. They are different wired.

My request :

- Does anyone "transformes" a non-RCA subwoffer to a PODLess system?
- Can anyone explain me briefly the steps?
- Which material/s I will need for this?

I will be very grateful to the responses.

I hope you will forgive me for my bad writing... But I prefeer write my own English than a automatic traducer, sometimes they doesn't work well.

I add a Picture taken by me of my opened POD:

Click the image to open in full size.

The names of colors are in Spanish; but I put the names of colors under every wire .

I put the voltage of every wire; the wires which doesn't have any voltage is because my tester doesn't give me any good result for this one.

I look that the people had connected satellites to an amplifier and then connect subwofer to the amplifier. I don't want that. I don't have any amplifier, only the z5500 system, and my amplifier will be the subwofer.

Thanks to all .

OK, I'm trying to do that; I have some problems:

In the tutorial by lakata, there are two wires with 100Ohm, PIN11 and PIN12. Ok, but my PIN11 has got 3v :S. I believe my DB15 is a little bit different..

I can't find PIN6 on the DB15. The wire has only 14 mini-wires into. My PIN6 is disappear. I can't turn ON the Amplifier.Or this is what I think... How can I know if my Amplifier is ON, if i d'ont connect any speakers.

Can anyone give me some help?

pin 11 is gnd from 8v supply
you must have 8 v between pin 11 and 10
you must connect a speaker and touch the wires from the input
if you hear something in speaker when you touch amps are ON

Yes, OK Adrian Vista.

I touch the inputs and only sounds the central speaker :S. Other speakers doesn't sound when I touch the wire . The enable wires are connected to GND and I have test to conect to 8v too; but other speakers doesn't sound...

I think that I will open my subwoffer to see if any is broken .

PIN7 and PIN8 to GND.

If I conect PIN7 to "1", speakers are mutted. This PIN is for mutting speakers if it is enabled, but other one?

Thanks for your help
