Question about Logitech Z-5300 Computer Speakers

Can the cable ends be converted to fit a DVD?

I do not want to hook the system to my computer but would rather have it hooked to my DVD or big screen TV. The ends of the cables are not the correct kind to fit in the DVD or TV. Can I purchase a cable to convert the cable to fit?

Re: Can the cable ends be converted to fit a DVD?

You can certainly purchase a cable or an adaptor to connect the speakers to almost anything - this however is not the issue - z5300 computer speakers have an impedance of 8 ohms, whereas most home theatre systems will be set up to use speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms or 6 ohms or 8 ohms - using the wrong type in the wrong configuration is very likely to result in damage. Also the speakers contain their own amplifier, and are designed to accept an input that has not been amplified to speaker levels before - most tv/dvd audio output will be amplified, depending on the model, so will almost certainly destroy your speakers unless you have a low amplification output on your tv/dvd. If you post back with the make and model of your tv and dvd player, hopefully i can find the necessary info to describe how you could make the connection if it is possible. Logitech says; "Logitech speakers are powered speakers and are designed to be used with a home computer. However, it is still possible to connect your speakers to many other devices. You can connect any Logitech speaker to any device that has a pre-amp mini-headphone jack. Home amplifiers will normally contain a standard ¼" headphone jack. You'll need to purchase a ¼" to 1/8th" adapter to connect your Logitech speakers to a home amplifier. Note: Under no circumstances should you connect your Logitech speaker system to an amplified output such as the rear outputs of a home amplifier. Doing so may cause damage to your Logitech speakers as well as your home amplifier." Hope this helps - please post back with details :)

Will I be able to hook my altec lansing ada745 to my sanyo dp39842

The Sanyo DP39842 only has a digital audio out. You'd need a digital to analog converter, a coaxial digital audio cable, and then an RCA to 3.5 mm audio cable. Here is an example of the audio converter: .

I hope this helps.

Cables to link LG Plasma with Panasonic around sound system

I would have to see the sound system you are hooking into. The way to get audio is to hook it direct from your cable/satellite box to the stereo. There is no need to go to the TV for audio.

I just got the logitech z323 speakers for my computer and i wanted to see if i could hook them up to my sony flat screen. i was wondering if there is a way to do that and if so how?

Logitech speakers connect with a cable that fits into something like an iPod or computer (Usually with a green tip). If your TV uses the usual 3 connectors (White Red and Yellow) you can go to the store (Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Online, etc.) and purchase a converter that will convert the Red White and Yellow cables to the Green cable. These are cheap and involve no electronics, but make sure that you buy one that has a male to female connection (will plug IN to your TV and has an opening to plug the green cable into)

Can I hook up my ada 885 to my dvd player& my flatscreen tv?

Yes. They are essentially Similar to any other 120 Watt Surround System for Home Entertainment. The Fact is, the only major difference is that the connections are different. On The PC it uses Stereo Standard Outputs. On Your DVD Player, It Will most Likely require an adapter to RCA (red/white -usually- Audio Cables). It just depends on your DVD Player. Have Fun!..... :)

Ada 880 blowing fuses

Good chance a shorted diode on the other end of the pcb where the big wire harness connects.
Four little 1N4001 diodes (D10 through D13 I think) and Two diode bridges (the black sqares standing off the board on four legs).

You need a meter to check them. Any one of those six could be the problem. If it's one on the 1N4001's
then you should replace them all and upgrade to 1N4007's.

I just upgraded some some parts on my ADA880 sub pcb today. Love the sound of this system no longer use it with my computer - have it hooked up to a DVD player with digital out. So basic but so awesome.
