funny seeing this question posted here... I worked at Phoenix Gold for 4 years, and I can help you with your problem.
when the BassCUBE was designed, the engineers didnt realize that a standard phone cable is what we call a "flipped cable", where if you were to lay the cable flat without any twists in it, on one end the connector would be tab up, and the other end would be tab down. on a standard RJ11 plug (the phone plug), the telephone requires that the pinout is as follows:
#1 - Black
#2 - Red
#3 - Green
#4 - Yellow
But the BassCUBE needs a non-flipped cable, which are hard as heck to find... so I will give you the quick easy fix.
You need a 2-line (4-wire) telephone cable that has a black, a red, a green, and a yellow wire in side it, and you will need 4 crimp caps or other way to splice the wires back together. You then need to cut the wire in half, and carefully seperate and strip each wire on each piece of the cable. Call one piece "Part A", and the other piece "Part B". Then you need to splice the cable back together as below.
Part A Part B
Black ------------------> Yellow
Red --------------------> Green
Green -----------------> Red
Yellow ----------------> Black
Once you have done this, and your SURE that your splice is good (not shorted out), then go ahead and plug your modified cable into the BassCUBE and its remote control, power it up, and you should be good to go.
