Wiring for Altec Lansing avs500

I am looking for the wiring configuration for the din plug. I have this set of speakers as well as a set of Klipch. The din plug fell apart on my Klipsch set. From what we hear this is common and difficult to find a plug that matches. We happen to have a set of Altec's and the plug fits perfect. All the colors of the wire were the same except one on each. We were hopeing it was stardardized wireing. We found a configuration diagram for the Klipsch set but can't find one for the Altec set. If you could help us anyway you could match up the correct wires to get my Klipsch working again I would appreciate it. Thanks, Angela

    But since the Altec Lansing AVS500 is a 5speaker system, that leaves you with 2 more wires for the front left & right. Normally Black should be common ground to all speakers. You would have to guess the other 2 wires for the front left & right.
    Hope this be of some help to you, and pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

Are the speaker plugs brlow rca and din plug in or out, and if its the white plug where can I get the plug for that ?


The speaker out connections are for stripped wire.
The DIN and RCA connectors are for audio IN.
The white connector is probably a power connector.

Logitech z3 wiring


I have a logitech z3 subwoofer with a mini-DIN-9 connector socket. It also has a volume control and 110V power cord. As best as i could trace the circuit, and using the TDA7377 stereo bridge amplifier chip datasheet, the pinout for the mini-DIN is as follows (untested):
1: L in (to vol.)
2: R in (to vol.)
3: Power (12V from transformer)
4: Standby (5V to play, 0.05mA; 0V to standby)
5: L out
6: R out
7: Ground
8: Ground
9: Ground

Connecting 3 to 4 with a large resistance (~20K ohms) should enable speaker. Pins 1 and 2 might be swapped; pins 5 and 8 might be swapped. Mini-DIN socket pin holes are numbered right to left, bottom row to top row:
9 8 7
6 5 4 3
2 1

I cant remember how the wires hook up from my sound card to my Klipch system with a sub. Thank you


you would probably need an amplifier or if it does have a head phone-like connector that can fit on soundcards green slot or speakers slot

Looking for a control pod.


I recently had a similar problem. In my case the left speaker had no sound. Finally traced the problem to a broken wire inside the control pod plug, which I destroyed by dissecting it. For those who have the experience, or know someone who does, purchase a new plug, which a Mini DIN 8 pin (RS-422 standard). It should be available at any good electronic parts store. Solder new plug on to cable, which requires a fine electronic soldering iron and a fair bit of skill (the wires are very fine).

Look at the plug (from the rear); you will see it comprises a top row of 3 pins equaly spaced; a middle row of 3 pins (there is room for 4 pins but one pin is missing just left of centre); a bottom row of 2 pins. I numbered these as follows:

8 o 7 o 6 o

5 o 4 o 3 o

2 o 1 o

The wire from the controller comprises 8 coloured cores and a bare core. The wiring of the eight cores are as follows:
DIN CORE PCB
pin 8 - brown 8
pin 7 - red 7
pin 6 - orange 6
pin 5 - yellow 5
pin 4 - green 4
pin 3 - blue 3
pin 2 - white 2
pin 1 - black 9
body clamp - bare wire - G

In case your coloured cores vary from mine I have also listed the pin each one goes to on the printed circuit board plug, which will let you identify the colours.
