Bose Acoustimass 8 pin Cable

I bought different part of Bose Acoustimass to make a complete system. The subwoofer has an audio input in the form of a circular 8 pins. I'm not sure if i can use this with any other system than the Bose LifeStyle Series. If there is a way, please help.

You can buy it on ebay but it's cheaper just to make one. If you can solder, all you need is a female 15-pin d-type connector and a bunch of speaker wire. Here is a diagram of the connections.
