I'm not sure if Z4i is the same as the X-530. But the picture you have is a X-530 Woofer. To take apart the X-530 woofer case, quite simple.


It's a pretty simple disassemble once you get the Grill off the front. Thats the only trick to it. The really annoying part is all of the glue they put... i just took my apart. I have to get rid of a **** load of glue just to get to the FUSE! I guess they didnt want the fuse to fall out? ... they really could have saved some glue.

Hope this helps.

1) take off the grill, there are i think about four tabs that go into the case. You should be able to pry the grill off without breaking anything.

2)unscrew the black grill holder, it was what holds the grill on.

3)unscrew the speaker

4) unplug the two - and + from the speaker

-from this point on... its pretty obvious...

to take off the main board,

Unscrew all of the screws on the back of it, the outside. All of the ones on the outside of the main board. Not the inside ones, you can see a difference in the screws. You could take them all off, your going to have to take those off if you want to take the heat shield(transfer case) off. You have to take this off in order to get to the componets, like the Fuse and so forth.

to take the air intake tube off, unscrew the four screws holding it on from the inside.
the air inverter thingy, you have to unscrew the screws on the bottom of the case, your going to need some piliers or a socket.

Ihave hk395 subwoofer..but i dont have the satellite and a two speakers..it is possible to use it...if not were i can buy..


U can use the sub-woofer by plugging it separately with a normal 2 stereo speakers.. or ..use 2 speakers attached on it ..be sure they are powerfull enough to make a match ..(usually it is enough 10 watt )
to plug t separately ..just take a look in the speaker configuration option of the driver..and change it in such a way that will allow you multiple out ..(you will see which one will be what ...even on a normal sound card with only 3 plugs ..The configuration you have to choose is probably 3=1 or so ...and will leave your pink for a microphone ..and the line in will turn in a out-let for the woofer ..
Or if the woofer have inlets for the speakers and has a amplifier built in ..you can attach any speakers..
In this case you can use teh normal speaker out ..and get the signal for the other speakers from the woofer ..
In case they were separate ..and the woofer was only connected with the central ..use like I say ..a configuration on the sound manager (speaker configuration ) in such a way that you will be able to connect the speakers in normal green out and use regular 2 stereo ones..and attach the sub-woofer in the plug specified in the diagram ..usually for 3=1 or 4=1 it will change the blue line in into woofer out ..and will work
In this case the speakers used in the green out have to be amplified separately (or have a built in amplifier like computer speakers have ).please ask if you didn't understood the procedure ..and please rate my answer

My megaworks 5.1 550 gets no power... I dont know why. when i plug in power cable, there is no power...


Step 1:

i had same problem with my magaworks 5.1 thx550.
i have tried to find solution in web but it was only one which voltage sense resistor 2Mohm track in PCboard was damaged.
after check PCboard in my megaworks thx 550 i found that tracks are quite well and voltage sense resistor is well too.

Step 2:

REPAIRING PROCEDUREin below items there are repairing procedures that i did with my THX550.to access to BCboards it is required to remove electronic boards from woofer case.
1- remove cover of woofer.2- remove woofer speaker from case by cutting and marking connected wires.
3- remove all Philips screws around cover and remove electronic parts smoothly, care about glues around power cord.4- remove and disconnect power supply board from other parts.


3_12_2013_7_45_42_am.jpg5- replaced switcher TOP234Y and capacitors C102, C206, C205 and D10 as below photos.3_12_2013_8_08_28_am.jpg6 check all of related tracks in repairing area.3_12_2013_8_10_00_am.jpg


3_12_2013_8_48_15_am.gif7- now it is time to re assemble electronic parts very carefully and prepare for test. it is better to use isolated transformer and put a lamp in serial to protect PCboard against short circuit. if green LED (POWER LED) is on it means that every thing is O.K.
8- in this step all of electronic parts should return back to case and reconnect sub woofer connections.3_12_2013_9_02_39_am.jpg

Step 3:

after replacing damaged parts my THX 550 is working well maybe for next 10 years.
i hope above mentioned instruction can be useful and helpful.

I have a subwoofer can i hook up to computer speakers


Yes you can. cut the left speaker lead and splice a wire from it to your sub woofer. If its a powered woofer you may have too much gain going in, You don't say what kind of sub it is or weather or not its a "powered" unit. If its a powered woofer (built in amp) you should take the output directly from the computer output (buy a 1/8 in male to 2 1/8 in female connector, send one output to your original speakers and the left side of the second output to the sub woofer. you can usually adjust the level of the sub (if powered) with a control on the unit. if you need more help, contact me but please tell me more about what you have.

AVS500 Woofer has low Freq.pulse.front and back speakers working. Need circuit diagram to trouble shoot . Henry


Is the power supply AC or DC. I had a similar problem with my boston acoustics speakers, and I was able to swap the power supply for a DC output one of the same voltage and amperage and the hum went fully away. it is an inverter circut that went bad in my woofer.

How to connect speakers to the sub-woofer and my iMac.


i believe that plug is special because it feeds not only audio signal but also voltage to power the speakers. so unless u know that the speakers will get power from the plug, it will probably not work
