Connector Pin Out

I no longer have the harness for my subwoofer so I've decided I will make a new harness by soldering wires to the leads inside the amp. I need to know the pinout of the connector. Does anyone have that information?? I believe the 2 pins to the right when looking at the back of the subwoofer are power, but I'm not sure. Thanks!

Tip

No audio even though sterio wires are all connected


My 1997 Alpine CDE-7828's wiring schematic doesn't disclose one important thing for many older and possibly even some newer sterios (aka 'head units'). If all wires are connected per the sterio's schematic andf sound is missing, you probably have a dedicated pin on yout vehicle's harness/connector that will read something like 'Turn-on AMP signal", <br />until you jumper the ignition hot lead (between the harness plug and your sterio) to your vehicle's 'Turn-on AMP signal' pin/connector wire (add a wire if none is supplied in your vehicle's connector), you won't get any sound even though all the other wires are connected per your head unit''s instructions.

My acer aspire 7720G shut down random


Wait a minute. What?

From what I read;
1) One wire of the AC adapter (Charger) is hot to the touch.
'.....when I touch the charge one part of the wire is very hot."

2) AC adapter checks out as far as voltage is concerned.
"I tested the charger voltage and everything is ok."

3) "Sometimes when I touch the charge appear the icon...Could it be the charger broken wire?"

Does this mean, "Sometimes when I touch the AC adapter (Charger), the battery icon appears."?

Battery is CHARGING icon?

Could it be a broken wire in the power cable TO charger?

Uh, yeah.

1) AC adapter NOT plugged into the DC Power Jack, plug the power cable of the AC adapter into power.

Multimeter set to DC Voltage, and proper scale, red Positive lead to harness wire that goes to DC Power Jack's center pin;

,black Negative lead of multimeter, to wire that goes to DC Power jack's inside cylindrical metal shell;

Now gently wiggle the cable from the AC adapter, TO the DC Power Jack of the laptop.

Do you get an intermittent reading?

2) Also, how did you replace the DC Power Jack? What steps did you take?

http://www.dcpowerjacks.net/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1291

Did you reuse the wire harness, and solder it to the DC Power Jack?
Have a lot of experience in desoldering/soldering?
What tools did you use?

25 Watt soldering iron?
.025 or .030 rosin core solder?

Desoldering Tool, or Desoldering Braid? (Solder Wick)
Side Cutters instead, and slightly shortened the wires of the DC Power Jack's harness?
(Then tinned the wires, and soldered the wires of the DC Power Jack harness, to DC Power Jack?)

Damp sponge, and cleaned the well tinned No.2 chisel tip, of the soldering iron, frequently? Used rosin solder flux?

Center pin wire (Positive), of harness cable TO DC Power Jack, was soldered to the center pin of the DC Power Jack?

Negative wire of cable TO DC Power Jack, was soldered to the inside shell of the DC Power Jack?
(Cylindrical shell, inside the DC Power Jack, that surrounds the center pin of the jack)

Sure there are no cold solder joints?

Not trying to 'browbeat' you, just am curious.

1) IF you are SURE you have the polarity correct, of the wires in the harness cable, that goes to the DC Power Jack;

,and you are SURE there is no broken wire, in the cable from the AC adapter (Charger) TO the DC Power Jack;

,and you are sure you made good solder joints;

I suspect the power correcting chipset on the motherboard, to be bad, or perhaps a Diode.

One example of the chipset I am referring to. This one is used in a lot of laptops. May not be used in yours, but gives you something to refer to when looking for a bad chipset, in the power stage, on your motherboard,

https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:oER5NNz8cwcJ:www.fairchildsemi.com/ds/FD/FDS6675BZ.pdf+Fairchild+FDS6675BZ&hl=en&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEEShOhWPjm_M-ROHme4iEMrztCTOd-28jNiy1hVLQQh_VOyv8zcXEVDB_iTQA6MuZO88UmRkDgjyW9j4CP2aIJ-4DS-h6JNM3lvxldeApQeecmz_DADCw1s7tmNLxfPknqX14SZP6&sig=AHIEtbS_rYUAeo_8rB9YHkW05ZjLqeH4Jg

Usually when bad the top of the chipset will be blackened, or bubbled.
A Diode is a one way valve for electricity. When they go bad it is visually obvious.

Need new system input cable for acoustimass 10


I've made a diagram of my serial cable. You can easily make one with some speaker wire and a 15-pin d-type female serial connector. Solder the wires as shown in the diagram.

I have two kicker 10s cvr and the wires came off from the inside,from speaker to the connecter? are they worth fixen there not blown just wires came off. There 10 months old


They are soldered on at the factory. There are times that the soldering job isn't done perfectly. If you do end up re-soldering them there may be an insulation covering the leads that will need to be burned off the lead. The insulation is the discoloration on the lead. When you do this, hold onto the lead with a weak pair of needle nose pliers to reduce a potential failure later.

Wires in the microphone at the point where you connect to the lead have come appart and i need to solder them back on, Black, red and white wires. Which in which order do i solder them onto the connecter...


There are many standards of microphone connectivity with 3 pin XLR (cannon) style plugs. It depends on where in the world you are as to the favoured standard,
Your microphone usesthe following::

Pin
1 ground (white) 2 +ve or hot (red) 3 -ve or return (black)

Another way to work out what wires connect to what, is to remove the cover of one of your XLR-XLR microphone cables exposing the connections it favours, plug the connector into the mics scoket , and use the connections to the cable guide you in resoldering the connections back on.
The same connections can be veiwed in the user manual here
Please rate this solution. Cheers

My wire got pulled off my sub how can i fix it


Hello gatmanfromda,

I'm assuming you mean the "tinsel" lead going from the connector to the sub cone. In many cases, the wire can be soldered back on. It takes care and patience and you need to be sparing with the solder and prevent it from stiffening the tinsel lead. Otherwise it will tear out again when the sub cones moves out. If the cone itself was damaged when the lead pulled off, you can use silicone sealant to repair it. Again, be sparing with the silicone and allow it 24 hours to set up before trying to operate the sub. If the wire pulled off from the connector terminal, just solder it back on.

Hope this helps.

Broken orange plug on right speaker going into subwoofer


Other posters to this forum have said this connector is available at Radio Shack.  If you can't find a connector here is a workaround that will do the job:

If there is a broken pin you can bypass it by cutting open the cable jacket and delicately soldering a 6 inch or so jumper onto the affected wire, and then  solder a jumper to the appropriate point inside the subwoofer. Pass the subwoofer jumper out of the case (drill a small hole) and connect it to the jumper you added to the cable.
