Tip & How-To about Maxell Flat Speakers With Subwoofer and Remote Computer Speakers

Wiring For Volume and Power Switch

I ripped the cord off the external thing-a-ma-bob for the volume and power switch on the Maxell Flat Speakers with Subwoofer unit, but managed to figure out which color wires attach to each numbered contact on the small circuit board inside the unit. The board has labeled contacts from 1 through 9, and following is the map for each color wire:
1 = Black (large wire, ground)  2 = Red 3 = Brown 4 = Orange 5 = Yellow 6 = Green 7 = Blue 8 = White 9 = Black (small wire)
I resoldered each wire back to the little board and it works like new. Much better than throwing them out and getting new ones, because these speakers have a decent sound and take up very little room. 
I hope this helps anyone who runs into the same situation, because I was unable to find this information anywhere else and had to figure it out by trial and error.

subwoofer not working


The subwoofer is dependent on a sound amp powered by an external source whereby the speakers are powered by the line output from the sound source (like a computer speaker out jack). Powered Subwoofers controlled by a power amplifier require a power source such as an AC/DC source plugged into the house power. If the device is defective or a mismatch, the subwoofer will not function. Try a new power transformer and see if that fixes the problem. Other than that, if the power transformer is good, then the woofer could be defective.

I have velodyne hgs15bg powered sub.. After a prolonged hard run, it developed a rattle at mid to higher volumes. what went wrong ??


You possibly ripped the woofer cone or welded the voice coil - something mechanical. There's only one thing in there that moves on purpose.

HS 500 noise from subwoofer


Well as I see from the owner manual for this device the sub is active one and my opinion is that electric is your problem.The power of the sub and main unit must be on the same phase otherwise you'll hear brrrrr or frequency of your main unit power supply on the sub.Thats why sound changes when you open or close the door.Take one power distribution cord (get power for bought devices from the same place) and connect main unit and the sub on it and then try.I hope that this will help you
