The green, black and beige cable is non-standard and proprietary meaning that Coby has defined their purpose which hopefully is described in your user guide.
It would be worth a few dollars to buy the properly color-coded cables to uncomplicate your setup.
Buy cables (or cable sets) that have the same color coding as your TV jacks along with the cable suggested below.
There are several ways to connect to an HDTV system and these are normally standard as previously described.
The red and white are for right and left channels and it isn't uncommon to see a three cnductor cable with one not connected since one of the methods of connection is to supply audio via two cables, video (composite) via a 3rd which is plugged into a corresponding jack, normally colored yellow.
Audio cables aren't really required to carry the mix of much higher frequencies of composite video.
If you have the following connectors, try this:
- S-Video (this does not contain any audio information and requires an S-Video cable)
- Right (red) and left (white) audio paths.
The S-Video connection provides a better signal that gives you a noticeably sharper picture.
This setup is selected from the TV's input source menu.

Phone jack on woofer goes into computer tower (should be color coded green) and power cable on woofer plugs into 120VAC. Speaker phone jack plugs into back of woofer. The speaker cable has an on-off switch and volume control as well as a phone jack for your headset.
I am having the same problem. I also have the combo dvd and theater system. I also read that the sub woofer is supposed to have a volume control on it but its not there. The only way to control volume is to connect to coby dvd player. This dvd player is beyond terrible. DVD looks bad and sound is miserable. I hooked up xbox 360 to my samsung 52 inch, then on the outputs of my tv into the inputs of the "TV" section on the Coby Sub woofer. At this point great sound quality comes from the xbox and all speakers, but the volume is uncontrollable and is blasting loud. Tv volume control does not work either. I am stuck like chuck and have not found a solution. This has to be one of the worse purchased i have ever made because i am forced to use a terrible DVD player just to get some sound through the speakers. I dont understand why on the speaker systems you buy without dvd combo has a volume control on subwoofer, but on the combo subwoofer doesnt have it. Just terrible. I will continue to look online and try and find a solution other than smash it to bits.
there is a nobb on the subwoofer, one is to dial down or up the sub (noob1) , and the other is to dial up or down the 5.1 speark (noob 2). turn noob 2 to the left to dial down the sound, first time i got my setup it was totally down, btw the 5.1 works wonderous if you use a home theater system. Iam using a 1,000watt sony home theater system. 100/200watt RMS per channel at 5 channel those little speakers really can handle well, I never experiance any blow outs :) Coby outdid themselfs with this system
This should all be described (at least in Chinglish) in a user guide.
For sure, two of the threesome cable are right (red) channel and left (white) channel. The remaining one probably for center or rear.
Mostly all of the different pieces should have color-coded in- and output jacks.
Look at the connector legends printed on your devices, they should have markings such as "line" both in- & out- and you will find corresponding markings on each.
You would need the 'out' connections from either the DVD and TV to end up on the 'in' connectors of the Coby main unit, presumably the woofer cabinet since these mostly house the electronics; i.e. power supply and amplifier.
You have a green orange and black connection, hook those to the subwoofer, on the other end of each of those connections is a split connection which splits to a Red/White cable that is provided, correspond the red/white to your dvd unit as such (Front Left, Front Right, Surround Right, Center and Sub), if your dvd player only has a 1 white/red port then you will only be able to use the 2 chanels, so just 1 split will be required.
