Coaxial connector for face plate for speaker wire

Each speaker has a 2 wires going to it from the amp. since I do not want to have cables coming out of the wall I recently installed a face plate. I found out that each speaker needs to two connectors for the banana plugs. What I would like to do is combine the two banana plugs for each speaker into one. Here is the question.... Can I use a coaxial connector so that I do not have to take up two connections for a speaker. Essentially I would have to run speaker from the amp to the face plate but the terminal connection would not be a banana plug it would instead be soldered to a male coaxial connector. This would then go into the face plate of the coaxial connector. the back of the coaxial connector would be soldered again to speaker wire. this would result in using one connector for one speaker. what is coaxial connector/ cable rated for is there a possibility that I fry the connector and more importantly the amp?????

SOURCE: Cable Connector inside TV

Unless you know how to sholder well and know how to do an isolation test on the set after its repaired I would let a pro do it My friend as I've seen it a hundred times. A peep will simply hook up a connector to the set and ground the connector or what looks like a ground and as soon as that set is pluged into an ac outlet and a cable or sat line is attached KAPOWWWWEEYYY.. It smokes and you end up blowing out the bridge rectifiers aong with all sorts of things. Now dont get me wrong please as you can repair set if and only if you wanna take that chance by simply taking a piece of coax cable with a connector on one end and soldering the center wire onto the broken wire that came off the connector and then soldering the outside or sheild wire to the place where the broken connector was attached if at all possible BUT I repeat this is not a good way to do this. Good luck

SOURCE: no coaxial connector on tv

if it has an antana input the two screws on the back, you get an adapter from almost any department store for around 3 bucks.

I think you should buy a video sender. It will take audio from your audio console and send wireless to a free channel to any free TV channel. No cables!

Here's one on ebay:

SOURCE: need pin out info for aqua vu 4 pin connector

I figured it out:

Here goes: There are 4 wires inside the Aqua Vu cable that runs to the underwater part of the cam.

Red = Hot or 12 volt power from battery postive (red) terminal

Black = Ground - ground to battery negative terminal

White= Video input (or center of video coax)

Green= Infrared lighting control, if you ground the green wire against the black/ground, you will see

that it switches ON the infrared or "Christmas" lights. Simply put a switch on the green wire after you ground it, so you can switch your IR's on and off.

Recently I bought a Harman Kardon HK 3770 Stereo receiver. My question is " can I use a Bose 901 Series VI speaker with this receiver?, since I plan to buy a 901 S VI speaker.. The receiver has no tape...


From the description of the Harmon Kardon, it sounds like you should be able to use the speakers, but you will not be able to use the active equalizer. The equalizer is designed to be cabled into the tape monitoring loop and allows you to listen to the equalized signal coming back into the receiver. Attach the +/- speaker wires to the right and left channel speaker connectors on your receiver.

My son trip over the cable cord and pulled out the cable connector, were you connect the cable cord.


  • Using a wire cutting tool, cut and remove the outer sheath of the coaxial cable approximately 1/2-inch down from the end of the cable. Take care not to cut too deep or you will damage the aluminum sheeting and perhaps even the plastic wire insulation. Peel back the aluminum sheeting so it wraps around the outer sheathing and remove about 1/4 inch of the white plastic wire insulation using the wire cutting tool to expose the thin cable wire.
  • Attaching Connector
  • Slide the ferrule ring, which is the metallic piece used to hold the connector on the cable, onto the coaxial cable. Push the connector onto the cable so the white plastic wire insulation rests up against the inside of the connector. Slide the ferrule ring forward so it covers the bottom end of the coaxial connector.
  • Finishing
  • Crimp the ferrule ring tightly around the wire and the connector. You may notice that some of the aluminum sheeting that you pulled down sticks out of the bottom of the ferrule ring. Trim the sheeting before using the cable.

    How do you connect the amp with the stereo


  • Choose where to put your new amp. If you are installing subwoofers it's usually best to put the amplifier in the trunk next to or attached to your subwoofer enclosure. If you are going to power your main car speakers with the amplifier then it may be better to put the amp under the passenger's seat.

  • 2

    Purchase the following wiring for the amp: A thick power cable (the thickness required depends on the total wattage of your amp, ask a sales rep or consult your amplifier's manual for the proper gauge) that will have to reach from your battery to the amp (the power cable should also have an inline fuse to protect the amplifier); 3 feet of ground cable of equal thickness as the power cable; an RCA signal cable to carry the left and right signals from your head unit to the amp; a "remote on" wire which can be any thin wire (20 to 24 gauge) that will also run from the head unit to the amp; speaker wire (if you are powering subwoofers you should only need about 3 feet of 12-gauge wire per sub, if you're going to power your main speakers you will need enough 16-gauge wire to reach each speaker from the amp, 12 feet per speaker is usually safe).

  • 3

    Gather the following tools: Screwdrivers, wire cutters, wire strippers, pliers, a utility knife, sandpaper, masking tape with a pen for labeling, 2 crimp-on o-ring ends for the power and ground cables. If you're hooking the amp to your speakers, you'll also need 2 crimp-on female spade connectors for each speaker.

  • 4

    Find a manual with instructions on taking off the dash of your car (not the whole dash--just the head unit, in order to hook wires to the back), and also to get at your car's speakers if you are hooking the amp to them.
    The Installation

  • 1

    Disconnect the ground (negative) cable from your battery. Never work on the electrical system of your car with this connected.

  • 2

    Attach the side with the fuse of the thick positive (+/red) power cable to the connector on the positive terminal of your battery; the o-ring can be sandwiched in the bolt on the connector that connects your car to the battery. Now put the fuse in the fuse holder.

  • 3

    Run the power cable through the firewall of your car (there is usually an opening on the driver's side) and to your amplifier. If your amp is in the back it is usually best to run this wire under the plastic molding that goes along the bottom edge of your car. Be careful where you run the wire because the power cables should never be near the signal or speaker wires.

  • 4

    Find a metal bolt or screw on the metal of your car near the amp to connect the ground cable to. This should be as close to the amp as possible, never more than 3 feet. Unscrew it and clean the metal surface with sandpaper. Attach the ground to it with the o-ring and screw it back down firmly.

  • 5

    Remove your head unit and run the signal and remote on wires from behind the head unit to your amp. Connect the RCA connectors and the remote on wire to the back of your head unit.

  • 6

    (If you are installing subwoofers and not running your normal speakers off the amplifier skip to step 7.) Run the 16-gauge wire from each one of your speakers to the amplifier. On the amp side use the masking tape to label each wire so you know which speaker it is. On the speaker end-strip a 1/4 inch off the ends of the wires and crimp on the female spade connectors with your pliers. Connect the spade connectors to your speakers making sure to match the positive (+/red or white) with the positive terminal and the negative (-/black) with the negative one.

  • 7

    Connect everything to your amplifier. Only strip off as much as you need off the end of each wire to make a solid connection, you don't want any exposed wire hanging out. If you have subs, attach them to the amp with the 12-gauge speaker wire.

  • 8

    Secure your amp to something. If it is in the back you can screw it directly to your subwoofer enclosure. If it is under a seat you may just want to get some straps that hold it down.

  • 9

    Reconnect your car's negative cable to the battery. Test your system and make sure everything works, going around to see that every speaker is on before you put everything back together

    Need wiring diagram for Sony XM-E70 Equalizer/Amp


    You need 1 thick ground cable ( usually brown)
    you need 1 thick power cable ( same thickness and wire as ground usually red )
    you should have 1 rem wire ( thin blue )
    RCAs, 2 for sub, extra 2 for 2 speakers.
    The rest I have no idea what they are.

    You need speaker cables to sub or amp.

    Some products use different colouring. Maybe the 9 pin connector is for head deck to speakers.

    Wiring into walls


    Okay, here's the verdict. No such din connector for the Bose AM15's exist. I thought I would take another look to see if anything had changed since I had looked last. Once again, all is the same and it makes using standard wiring a pain. However, it is possible to do what you want to do, which I assume is a nice clean install. I have rigged many of these systems, and, here's what I do.

    First, the biggest pain is the 25' LFE cable. Shortening it is a pain because the wires are thin and dificult to splice. Lengthening it isn't a great idea either because you want to keep the cables as short as possible. However, a lesser of 2 evils exist and that is to keep this cable whole. Before you begin, peel the LFE cable from the buch untill it is separated from the bundle. Next, peel the speaker wire for each speaker so the pos and neg for each speaker is together, but, separated from the bundle. Then you'll place the sub where you intend it to go, plug in the 13 pin din (I even looked at vga options...nada) and stretch the cable to the wall and cut one speaker wire at a time (+ and -) being CAREFULL to mark which wire is positive and which is negative after the cut. DO NOT cut the LFE cable, and make sure you give yourself an extra foot or so before you cut the wires.

    Once the cuts are complete and you have labeled pos and neg for each wire, you may strip the wire and plug into your regular speaker wire wall plate (banana or clips). On the reverse side of the plate, attatch the pos and neg to the plates making sure everything is consistant. Then, run the wires to your receiver (or vise versa). Regular speaker wires typically distingush pos from neg through some sort of marking on the wire housing.

    The other cable you will run is the sub (LFE cable). If you want to just drill a hole in the wall and stuff the cable in and run it to the receiver, that's one way, but if you want to keep it clean, use a single RCA connection wall plate. Then, to minimize loss of LFE sound, run a TV coaxial cable from the sub to the receiver and terminate both ends with RCA terminators.

    Once the wires are run to the receiver, double check that all the speakers are hooked into the sub and the wiring is complete. Take a AA battery and mark the location of the speaker that corresponds to the wire. In other words, with the speaker wire, hold one end to one side of the battery and the other end tap lightly to the other side of the battery. You will hear a crackle or pop locating the speaker the wire goes to. Once this is identified, label the wire and plug into the appropriate output making sure the pos and neg are consistant.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, so, I drew a diagram and will attach it to this forum asap. Good luck and have a blast!

    Broken coax connection on back of unit


    If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

    All you need is:
    1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
    1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
    1 - coaxial coupler
    2 - small wire nuts

    electrical tape

    Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
    & remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

    Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

    Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

    Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.
