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

No, if you want to stream music and videos you can use windows media center, windows media player, But my favorite is tversity it can stream almost any format audio and video. you may also need to download a item from the market place that lets you stream. its like xbox media pack.

Logitech x-230 9 pin problem . i need to manualy insert wires into pin holes.. So can anyone tell me the color and pin hole nunber to put right wire into

worked on this for 3 days but i finaly got it I had to open it an follow coper lines using datasheet, the connector is RS232 the pins are

1 = LED+
2 = IN R
3 = OUT R
4 = OUT L
5 = GND
6 = ON
7 = 5V
8 = GND
9 = IN L

so you have to put a swiths between pin 6 and 7

you should also put a potentiometer GND-IN-(AUDIO SOURCE)

and a led between pin 1 and GND

and that is it!

Dell (Altec Lansing) A425 Subwoofer Pinouts

This is a standard female DB-9 serial port.
Here are the pinouts.

Pin 1 = Left Speaker Out +

Pin 2 = Left Speaker Out - (Common Ground)

Pin 3 = Left Line In +

Pin 4 = Right Line In +

Pin 5 = Left/Right line In - (Common Ground)

Pin 6 = Right Speaker Out +

Pin 7 = Right Speaker Out - (Common Ground)

Pin 8 = Power A

Pin 9 = Power B

Jumper (short) Power A to B to turn on.
If you want a volume control you need to put one on the inputs. You will buy buy a stereo volume control or potentiometer.
Here is some info on how to do this.

Speakers All Cut out Including Sub When Music is Played Loud


1. Please ensure that the all the connections between the satellite speakers and the subwoofer are firmly connected.
2. Next, please connect the green colored 3.5mm audio jack to another audio device such as an iPod or an MP3 player.
3. Ensure that the SoundTouch remote control is firmly connected to the back of the subwoofer.
4. Connect the power cord from the subwoofer and connect it to another single power outlet in your house. If you have an automated voltage regulator (AVR), please connect the power cord through the AVR instead of connecting it directly to a power outlet in your house.
5. Power up the speaker system and check whether the power button on the SoundTouch remote control will light up.
6. Turn on the Matrix Mode ON. This option is on the SoundTouch remote control. This is to ensure all speakers from the speaker system will produce audio that will be played from the audio device.
7. Play audio from the audio device. Check and see whether the all the speakers will produce audio being played from the audio device.

One controller pod...being split for two speaker sets?

Technically it's not a KVM connector.

A KVM switch uses a DB15 serial connector.  Just like a monitor uses a DB15 for it's VGA connection.

The pinout for the control center's DB15 connectori is not likely to be the same as either one of those two types of devices.

Unfortunately, there is no way to make one pod work with two sets of speakers. The reason for this is that the voltage supplied to the control center comes from the sub-woofer.  You can imagine having two sources of power connected to one, single control center...

The control center would not know which sub-woofer and power system to regulate.  You would end up with issues revolving around power distribution, volume levels being variable - or worse.  More than likely, you would either overload the control center or it would simply not be able to keep up with the demand for both systems simultaneously.

I myself just had my set of Z-5500's RMA'd to Logitech under the exact same circumstances.  I just received my new set today.  Retail box and everything.

He was NOT kidding you.  I had to make him repeat himself just like you did.  LOL.

But I sent the control center, remote and purchase receipt with them.

5 days later, I found out DHL almost had my package here.  (Although I was lucky.  The turn-around time on the RMA is subject to supply and demand.  I was quoted 6-8 weeks at one point due to their lot being completely empty.  They are manufactured and shipped from China according to the rep I spoke with...)

My advice to you is to get right on the RMA process.  Get your incident number from the Logitech rep who sets up your RMA.  Get those two pieces sent in as soon as you can.  Do what I did.

To do this, call the following number.

General Technical Assistance/RMA: 646-454-3200

Package the remote, control center into a box snuggly.  WRITE YOUR INCIDENT NUMBER given to you by the Logitech rep on the receipt.  Include the receipt in the box.  Take it to the post office and send it by USPS Priority mail.  Get "Delivery Confirmation" on it.  All told it came to just under $10 for me.

Send it to the following address:

Logitech Incorporated
6505 Kaiser Drive
Fremont, CA 94555
ATTN: Incident Number# <put your incident number here>

You will also be instructed to send a copy of your receipt by way of fax.  WRITE YOUR INCIDENT NUMBER AND PERSONAL INFORMATION ON IT BEFORE FAXING.  (Or at least on a cover letter.)  They're supposed to send you an email to let you know that they received the fax...but I never received one.  Good thing I included a second copy with the control center and remote...because that's the one they used for processing.

FAX: 702-269-3439

I have pics of the shipping order that came on the box, too.  If you would like to see this proof, let me know.  I'll be more than happy to post plenty of pics that show my old set (sans the control center of course...) and the new set.

But don't delay like I did.  Mine was two days away from expiration of the warranty before I sent in the parts.  LOL.

Any more questions?  Let me know.  :)
