Re: Need a replacement plug for my surround speaker wires

I think you should call Sony and see if they'll sell you a new cable. I did a little poking around on their website and it looks like you can buy additional cable for around $10.

Good luck.

Turned my tv on today and only 1 speaker working (left front). Yesterday all speakers were working fine. Have unplugged everything and set up again but still just the one speaker working. Any ideas?

Swop left & right speakers, if only the right speaker works, the ex left speaker is faulty, if the left side still doesn't work, the problem is the tv

Need replacement speaker cables for dav-hdx576wf

Since noone else gave you a good answer I will. I lost some cables to mine a while ago and found this awesome jerry rig solution; Go to radio shack, and ask for '14-16 gauge star ring terminal connectors' Should come in a pack of 10 and be about 2$. On the back of the unit where these connectors fit, there should be two prongs. You will need two star-rings for each connector slot. Wire up your connectors and crimp the ends LIGHTLY with a pair of pliers. The star-ring connector connected to the negative wire should be inserted to the left prong, (left if you are facing the back of the unit), and the right prong is the positive. If you did everything correctly, you should be able to make your own wires for sony stereo systems whenever you need to. Saved my ***, hope it did the same for you. Here is a link to what they look like.

I want to extend my speaker cables, how should i connect them

The ideal solution would be to swap out the entire cable for a longer one unless you have to...
It sounds like this isn't an option, so your next best choice is to get some extension speaker cable and cable crimp-on connectors or Wire cable connector blocks (see ebay URL with picture below ) from the wiring department at Radio Shack, Home Depot or your local hardware store. The crimp connectors are generally rubber shielded metal tubes that you insert the wires from the speaker and the extension speaker wire. You then squeeze the crimp-on connector with pliers to secure the wires in place.
IMPORTANT...During extension make sure the polarity (+ -) marekd with different color will continue from existing speaker cable.Otherwise you will loose the LOW NOTES -BASS

If you don't have any extra speaker wire on hand, you can pick some up at a reasonable price at Radio Shack or any hardware store. While there are many theories about what gauge speaker cable are best, you're likely starting with fairly thin wire coming from the back of the RCA home theater system, so crimping on a heavy gauge wire will do little to improve your signal quality. 18-guage speaker wire will likely do the trick in most cases. I would likely recommend a different solution if this were a component-based system with individually powered amps, but for an all-in-one system, 18-guage wire will be sufficient.
Crimp-on **** connectors come in a variety of sizes. Make sure the size you choose is appropriate for the wire you use to extend the length of your speaker cabling run. Here again, Radio Shack and the local hardware stores will sell the connectors you need for most of the common wire gauges.

I bought a panasonic home theater (open box). the only problem was that it was missing the speaker cables. panasonic wants $166 for the cables! any place elst that would have them or the plastic...

According to the manual the speaker cables are as follows...

1 Speaker cable (center)

[REEX0858-L (green)]
2 Speaker cables (surround)

[REEX0860E-L (blue)]
[REEX0868E-L (gray)]

2 Speaker cables (surround back)

[REE1488 (brown)]
[REE1489 (tan)]

The only things that makes them unique are the unique molded connectors. Hardly $166 worth. You could buy a 100' roll of 18-gauge speaker wire or lamp cord and 5 molex connectors at Radio Shack for a lot less.

If you took the base unit in I'm sure they could help you find a compatible connector and pins.

I was given a Sharp HT-DP3000 reciever and all the speakers that go with it.. but I don't know how plug in the speakers into the wire there is a box for the two surround and a separate box for the right...

Do you have speaker wire if not you will need some, the wire is cheap about $5 bucks a roll your local department store will have it. You see a red and black tabs on the back of the unit and on the back of each speakers you push down and stick one wire in the hole. red will be your + and black will be - The two surround go on the back wall behind your seat.The center will sit on top of TV and the sattalite speakes go beside the left and right side of TV. and the sub sits on the floor in hidding behind something or under a table. (P.S, Make sure the wire is shaved about 1/4 of inch before you stick in the wire DO NOT plug the power cord in, intill you hook up all the speakers this could damage the unit. You do not need a sub woofer, if you have one great If not don't worry that will not damage the unit it has a internal switch to turn on/off the sub woofer The sub woofer offers extra deep bass that you can't get from the sattalite speakers.)

Speaker cables are too short

Just go to Radio Shack and buy some RCA jacks, the length of wire that you need and a soldering iron. Those inexpensive extension cords (12 and 15 foot) at the dollar store make good speaker wire, as copper is better. Just cut off the ends. Speaker wire from an electronics store is expensive.
If you decide to go to Radio Shack or similar store, the clerk should be able to explain everything to you, if not, run, don't walk to another store. You will eventually find someone to help you. If you don't know how to solder, just go to google and type in "how to solder". I'm sure you'll get plenty of hits.

From looking at the manual for your surround sound system

It looks like it just uses the regular spring-loaded clips to hold the speaker wire in place. All you need is regular copper braided speaker wire, nothing fancy. Then you strip about half an inch of insulation off the end of the wires, and pull back the spring loaded clip and put the wires in, then release the clip so it clamps down on the bare metal.

Speaker wire you can get from anywhere that sells the actual systems. I know places like Radio Shack (The Source by Circuit City) sells spools of it. Any other electronics store probably sells it too. It's common stuff.

Speaker wire

Use the same gauge that is supplied for the rear. Probably 24 gauge.Do it with the power off. If the wires touch with the power on the rear output IC will blow. Good Luck

Need one set of speaker wires.

If the wires have just bare ends plugged into spring-loaded contacts then you can get some twin lead from radio shack or walmart. Just make sure you match the colors from the stereo to the speakers
otherwise you might not get real stereo or surround.
