The black (right) speaker RCA port in the subwoofer is dead, when I attach the black RCA speaker cord to the yellow (right) speaker port I hear flawless sound. How do i take off the back panel of the sub to replace the RCA ports?
This is an issue that would take some experience in a few areas mainly sodering, My best advice is to first off see if your warranty is still good but even if its not you are probably going to save yourself a big headache by sending it to the manufactuer and let them repair it.

It would appear you need 2 x 1/4 inch (3.5mm) jack to RCA cables, one for each channel and each speaker, left and right, rather than just the 1 cable ("..and a mini to RCA cord...") you seem to have bought.
The Yellow and Black RCA ports appear to be the Left and Right speaker channels respectively.
The output cable with a green jack that connects to the green jack on the computer's sound card seems to be tied in with the wired Remote Control.
I would have recommended getting a pair of passive 40W RMS Logitech Stereo Speakers.
As long as the speakers you have match in terms of Wattage and Impedance, you should be okay.
You shouldn't connect the subwoofer to the TV. Just connect the Right and Left audio cables (red and white RCA plugs) to the TV audio out and then the other side goes receiver's audio in. If you are using the subwoofer that came with the unit, connect it to the sub port (purple and grey or black striped). The red and black striped cable goes to the subwoofer control.
If you are using another active subwoofer, connect it to the RCA jack labeled Subwoofer Audio OUT.
If you have a 3-plug RCA cable that is a composite video cable. The yellow plug carries the video, the red and white carry the audio signal. This cable is most often used for connecting older VCRs and game systems to a TV (or newer devices to an older TV). Thus leave the yellow jack dangling if using it for an audio cable.
Set your TV to use the external audio speakers and the receiver will take care of the signal to the subwoofer. (You only would connect the speakers individually for a computer sound system.)
what impedence are the voicecoils?
Dual 4 - Dual 2 - Dual 1 ??
Orion SX / GS / HCCA amp Wiring guide:
Orange = Right Positive Black/ Orange = Right Negative Yellow = Left Positive Black/ Yellow = Left Negative Blue = 1+1
Bridging of SX or HCCA Amps: 1. Use the Orange wire for Positive. 2 Use the Black/ Yellow wire for Negative 3. Push "in" the Mono Button
That amplifier is only 4ohm mono stable - so assuming the subs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils...
First wire both in Parallel Independently So each subwoofer is now a 2 ohm load. (combine + and + - and- on both subwoofers)
Now Take a positive on one voicecoil of sub #1 and attach to amplifier+(orange)
Take a - on that same subwoofer and attach it to a + on the OTHER subwoofer.
Finally, take a - from the second woofer to the amplifier -(black/yellow)
Now you have a 4 ohm load on your bridged channels.

There are not RCA Hookups on any Raw Subwoofer. An amplifier takes an RCA input signal (DC) and turns it into AC to the speaker.
This is a raw driver. It has wire push terminals just like any other driver (speaker).

Please check your model number, I can not find it on the JVC service website.
This is a powered sub-woofer I think. You need to have a thick black cord that connects the sub to the head unit. Then the satellite speakers get connected to the speaker jacks on the sub-woofer box. The sub-woofer should also be plugged into an A/C outlet on the wall.
The speaker outputs are labeled right there where you connect the speaker wires. You should see a red and black connector for each speaker and they are labeled "front right" "front left" "center" "rear right" "rear left".
If you do not have the thick black cord you need to connect the head unit with the sub-woofer, you can not use this system.
If you look at the head unit and give me the model number on it, I may be able to find the part you need. But I must have a good model number to work with, preferably from the head unit.
In general, there are two ways to hook up your sub-woofer. First using the high level outputs from your receiver ( speaker output from the front R & L speaker terminals ) run a set of wires from the outputs to the speaker inputs on the sub-woofer, you do this in concert with the speaker wires going to the front R & L speakers which you then attach to the R & L speaker outputs on the sub woofer amp. Note that the sub woofer doesn't power your front speakers, the connections from the sub amp are just a pass through connection where the signal needed by the sub is parasitically taken from the inputs. Second is via a low level output from your receiver / amp to the low level input on your sub amp. This is normally done via a RCA type of patch cable and connected to the sub woofer RCA jack on the rear of the source receiver or amp, Next run the patch cord to the sub amp an into the RCA jack input. IF you have a right and left input, use the Right input.
with this system it comes with connector cables, on one end is 3.5mm to go into your computer and the other end is rca jacks that go into the subwoofer, all the speakers go to the subwoofer. your computer must have all 5 ports to get true surround sound, if not, just hookup the ones for the FL FR and run RCA split from that to the speaker output on your computer.
