In order for this to work, you will need an external amplifier. Your receiver is set up to use a "powered" sub. With only speaker connections on the sub, it is a "passive" sub requiring a separate amp.

RCA output is stereo +- signal, you need to use the two RCA audio cables to connect the speaker, you may need to adapt a set of RCA audio cables to do this.

Use the RCA red and white cables, internal connector pin is + , external is -.

I obtained a pair of Yamaha YST MS50 speakers with no subwoofer. Can they be adapted to use a different sub, such as the inexpensive Yamaha YST MSW5? The clear problem is in different cabling.

What cable connects a Dell PC to a Harmon Kardon HK395 sub woofer?


3.5 m/m. Normally it is color coded green. The pink connects the subwoofer to the speakers. Any color will work. Just mark both ends of wire jacks.

How to connect the subwoofer to my Tv Samsung???


Most of the time there is a foldback of the left and right audio inputs of the subwoofer in that they use and sum the L and R audio and then filter the high end off. That means that the audio outs from your source be it the TV audio outs or a AV receiver that they can be Y corded to the sub woofer for that purpose.

My satellite speakers are no longer working, logitech do not issue replacement satellites. Do you know if their is a way to use alternative sattelites with the subwoofer?


the back of the sub has 2 rca connections for left and right speakers so all you have to do is either find satellites that use rca connections or find or make your own "clip-on" or detachable wire to rca connection.

Hi, My friend left me his Z-2300 sub but lost the speakers that go along with the system. What speakers are the best replacement for the sub? which dont involve me soldering any wires!


I don't know which would be best but my recommendation to you is go shop around on the internet or in stores and find some good quality 2.0 (2 speakers without a subwoofer) computer speakers. If the speakers don't already have RCA connections it is easy to find a 3.5mm to RCA cable connector. Let me know if you want me to clarify that....audio lingo is very confusing sometimes!

Hooking up a Logitech Z-2300 subwoofer to a Yamaha RX-V392 receiv


This is the exact same setup im lookng at, just a different Yamaha receiver (RX-V663). Since the 3.5mm headphone jack and and the sub preout are both 'line level' you just need to pick up a male RCA to female 3.5mm jack converter from radioshack. I'd expect it to be around $5-8.

I have already stripped my old 5.1 HTIB system rca connector to use the surround speakers with my receiver. They work but are cheap speakers. Im tempted to do something similar with the z-2300 speakers, much higher quality, but I would definitely use a converter instead of stripping to keep them backwards compatible.
