What cable connects a Dell PC to a Harmon Kardon HK395 sub woofer?

3.5 m/m. Normally it is color coded green. The pink connects the subwoofer to the speakers. Any color will work. Just mark both ends of wire jacks.

How to open the subwoofer unit? There is something lose inside and I don't know how to open it. And I can't find the service manual on internet.

particular model may please be mentioned.

In general, there is two types of packaging

1. The bottom or the back or the front will have screws, you can unscrew and that's it.

2. Some sub-woofers are factory sealed, that means all their panels are glued shut. Now here's the problematic part. Usually you can't open a glued shut sub-woofer without inflicting some cosmetic damage. You may put scratches on it or vice versa.

Still if it is very essential, you may have to use some thin and flat object like a praying knife or a flat head screwdriver. Use them with caution as applying too much pressure at wrong angels may result into ricocheting into your hand / fingers.

How to connect the subwoofer to my Tv Samsung???

Most of the time there is a foldback of the left and right audio inputs of the subwoofer in that they use and sum the L and R audio and then filter the high end off. That means that the audio outs from your source be it the TV audio outs or a AV receiver that they can be Y corded to the sub woofer for that purpose.

I have a subwoofer can i hook up to computer speakers

Yes you can. cut the left speaker lead and splice a wire from it to your sub woofer. If its a powered woofer you may have too much gain going in, You don't say what kind of sub it is or weather or not its a "powered" unit. If its a powered woofer (built in amp) you should take the output directly from the computer output (buy a 1/8 in male to 2 1/8 in female connector, send one output to your original speakers and the left side of the second output to the sub woofer. you can usually adjust the level of the sub (if powered) with a control on the unit. if you need more help, contact me but please tell me more about what you have.

If i increase the sub woofer volume the voice distorts and gives a buzzing sound. it works fine on low volume

Your sub woofer is not mean for voice sound...check that you have connected the systen up properly and that you have put the sub woofer into its wn connection..if it is in the right connection the woofer could be blown.also try decrease the midrange hurts on the woofer

I have a logitech x-530 5.1 system that doesn't work. when i pulled the sub woofer apart, all I found was a blown fuse. What caused the fuse to blow? Also,what would be the voltage of the secondary side?

Hi there bud , The Blown Fuse could of been cause by maybe a Power Surge or a Power Trip...If this hasnt happened then it could also be due to faulty wiring in the Subwoofer itself when it was being produced.
What you can do is , take it back to the shop and have them replace it...Dont inform them that you had opened it as then they will delete your warranty...
Hope this helped bud
Happy new year

I Do Not Know How To Connect Boston Micromedia To My Computer

The Boston Micromedia speaker set comes with two speakers (right and left),a subwoofer, and a complete set of cables to connect everything up.

1.) Position the speakers. The two small speakers typically are spaced equal distance apart on a desk/table top to the benefit of the listener. The sub-woofer typically rests under the surface, on the floor for example.

.) Connect the cable sets to the back of the two small speakers along with the speaker feet.
Note: the small speaker with the volume control knob will have three cables coming from it. This will be the "right" speaker. The other speaker will have a single cable and will be the "left" speaker.

2.) The cable ends will be color coded to match the jackson the sub-woofer. Match up the color coded cables to the respective colors on the subwoofer as follows:

(a) White cable end (left speaker) to white jack on sub-woofer.
(b) Red cable end (right speaker) to red jack
(c) Purple cable end (input) to the purple jack
(d) Green cable end (computer out) to the computer's microphone output jack.

Note: if any of the cables are too short to reach their jacks for whatever reason, an extender cable with a female and male end can be purchased relatively inexpensively to make up the difference in distance.

3.) Power up the system (plug in power cables to the sub-woofer and wall), play some music, and adjust the sub-woofer sound (control knob) to suit listening pleasure.

A nice little set of speakers, I had mine for some years now and continue to enjoy them. Good luck!
