I have the same system, mcm309r and unfortunately, the power is routed thru the subwoofer meaning the subwoofer has the power cord and the stereo plugs into it, so if you unplug the sub-woofer, you unplug the stereo.

I ended up with one piece of a Teac model CD-X8 MIcro Hi Fi System. you can see what the whole system looks like at

Yes - you have the sub-woofer. It is a powered sub-woofer with a built in amplifier for both itself and a pair of small satellite speakers. Frankly, given the low cost of the whole system it may not be worth selling on ebay due to the high shipping costs of such an item, but I imagine you could get $30 for it or so on local craigslist or something, assuming you have no use for a sub-woofer...

Problem w/shelf system stereo system!!!!!!!!1

You say that the fault lies in the sub-woofer speaker....

You will need to remove the back panel of the speaker box and make a visual examinatiojh of the contents there just may be an overload fuse there that you can replace your self...there may be a broken wire if the Sub-Woofer has been dropped...

There may be a capacitor or choke that has come loose from its mounting and in falling broken a wire,,,but please have a good look to see whats gone wrong inside the sub-woofer cabinet.

If you like you could take the backs of both the right and left
sub-woofer speaker boxes then visually compare the good one with the faulty one so you can see if there is any physical difference on the faulty one...if they both look the same then you willl need to do some testing with a multimeter set to Ohms to see where the break in continuity lies...just compare readings between the good one and the faulty one to find the fault..

Cheers From YUBEUT..
