Hi treal512,
First of all, it would be helpful if you identify your system PID # and whether the Sub has loudspeaker clips or RCA's.
From my understanding, if you are sure your Sub is working 100%, you can perform a simple mod or simply buy an adaptor from ebay (see Post # 615) to operate on a home theatre amplifier, depending upon your PID #.
Good luck!

guess so :/ I've decided to dump the Logitech pod and am going for a full grown receiver. My aim is DENON AVR-X2400H - should perfectly cover everything including PC connection via HDMI/optical. The satellites I'll reuse from Logitech Z5500 and I'll try to bypass the subwoofer circuitry to be able to connect it directly.

you have pre 636 and you are missing voltage regulator, read tread #547.

For everyone who are looking something simple and working solution without much soldering here is interesting cheap item that works for dead z5500, it works very well with any version because its the same as simple d-sub, i just putted rca cable on it and works great with onkyo sr-504e that by the way has good crossover frequency adjustment from 40 to 200hz, keep mine for z5500 on 60hz and i lowered subwoofer level on onkyo to -5 so it isnt so loud.

Search ebay for D-SUB DB15 VGA Male Female 3Row 15Pin Plug To Terminal Breakout Board Connectors

Default Need resistor values - Z-5500

Good morning,

Was wiring a Z-5500 when several resistors on the output board roasted. I need to know the replacement values for Resistors R125 - R129. Three of these are obviously toasted, so I thought I'd go ahead and replace all. Can't find a schematic anywhere and Logitech had no clue what I was referring to.

The resistors are so badly charred I can't see the bands to determine their values.

Is there anything else I should check while in there?

This was exactly what I was looking for. How can I keep using my subs with a full on receiver. I was trying to figure out the easiest way, and it looks like it was done. Looking forward to getting my plug in to see how it works.

Default low sub woofer volume

I made a replacement cable solution for my z5500 control pod for pid R801. after connecting this to the subwoofer Im not getting the full subwoofer volume. it is somewhat limited to like 20% of the volume capacity. also the bass is not as good as what i used to recieve via control pod itself. i tried both the methods of soldering the voltage regulator to pin8 as well as without the regulator. but still woofer volume is low.. what could be wrong..?
