    I have almost the same problem - I have a cable but need a longer one. I am waiting for partsmaster to get back to me about their spec - you might get luckly there too. But like I said Im waiting for a reply. Try the parts number THS 66 or THR1

I have a jvc th-m606 receiver and I don't have a subwoofer for it, is there a different way for me to get audio output or a different subwoofer I can use?


You would have to make a cable that goes from the 8 pin mini din of the jvc unit to each individual speaker. A wiring diagram can be found online each pin on your 8 pin goes to a speaker , and one is for power. Find a wiring diagram and find a cheap electric store that can make the cable for you. I had the same problem...

  • Here is a list of cables for your unit from Crutchfield's.


  • If your looking for the s pin DIN cable from the sub you can get that anywhere. The 8 pin DIN is a standard cord the same across the board. Here are a couple to choose from.

Where do the cables go for pic and sound


You can find the manual here if you need a copy.

This system was sold with speakers and connecting cables. One cable connects from the main unit to the subwoofer. The rest of the speakers supplied with the system plug into the subwoofer with their special connecting cables. If you don't have the subwoofer and satellite speakers along with the cables, you can't get sound out of this system. There is no built-in amplifier and no way to connect speakers otherwise.

The video connection to your monitor or TV is from the rear panel on the main unit. You can use an s-video cable, composite video (a single cable with RCA plugs) or component video (3 RCA cables), depending on the inputs supplied on the TV. Component video gives best performance if the TV supports it.

I have a Bose lifestyle 25 from 1997 and I need a receiver power cord and a complete harness between the subwoofer and tha acustimass boxes. Do you know where I can find it ? Thank's


There's nothing special about the original power cord, so I'd go to Radio Shack or any electrical supply store and get it for $8.

Or you may have an unused one from other device lying around the house.

eBay has several of the unique connections you want.

Search "Bose lifestyle 25 cable".

Digital Optical port to 8-pin din


Optical digital cables can't be magically wired to copper inputs. NO digital signal can be magically connected to an analog interface and work.

Even if you could do what you propose, how would you control volume?

Why don't you just connect the BluRay to the JVC system and let IT handle the audio to the sub and satellites?

Run an optical cable to the JVC TH-C60's Optical In port. Make sure there are no tight bends in the optical cable as that will degrade its ability to transmit a signal.

No power to subwoofer


The subwoofer is designed to be "on" at all times. It will detect signal from the cable and should start by itself. So yes, the pin cable must be connected.

JVC 8 pin pinout - speaker cable


Looking at the connector, there are 3 rows of pins.
Starting with the first row closest to the alignment mark:
[Power On],[Center Speaker],[Sub Woofer]
[Surround Right],[Speaker Ground],[Surround Left]
[Right],[Left]

If you are trying to connect two JVC units, you will need an 8-pin cable that has the SAME pins connected on each side. You will need to test this using a multimeter set to ohms or 'connectivity'.
There are other 8-pin cables out there like the one for apple networking, but they use a crossover pinout where pin 1 on one end = pin 3 on the other end. This is bad. JVC needs pin 1 to = pin 1.

This is a standard connector/pinout setup that JVC uses, so connecting a TH-C3 to a TH-C50 works fine. There is a bunch of intermixing that you can get away with. The only thing to keep an eye on is the power in watts that one unit sends and the other recieves. Worst case is that the speakers are quiter than expected or that you can turn the volume up so high that it can damage the speakers. In all cases, you should get desired volume somewhere on the dial.

If you are trying to wire the speaker set custom, then you will need to take note that an '8-pin' connector is actually a 9-wire connector. Along with the above pinout, you will need to add Case Ground, which is the metal circle that surrounds the pins. To make the speakers turn on, you will need to apply 12v to the Power On pin and ground the 12v source to the Case Ground outer ring.
The system takes 3 to 4 seconds to fully turn on after this connection is made. Speakers should be wired using the center pin for speaker ground and each other pin respectful to each speaker.

SP-PWM505


MOst of the time it is the jack that the cable plugs into that has the problem. .
Also the jack is not broken but HAS broken the solder connection TO the jack.
If you know someone who can safely take it apart and solder, let them try.
