While moving, my X-230 partially got "crushed" beyond recognition... or at least the SubWoofer it - satellites are as good as new. However, warranty is long since gone and I'm not inclined to throw away perfect good set of speakers.
Question: Does anybody have internal schematics and/or service manual for Logitech X-230?
I'm thinking of using some other SubWoofer and riggin' them to work with X-230 satellites. Pinout of the RS232 connector that connects to the SubWoofer is, therefore, a must.
I used a Radio Shack D-Sub 9 Pin Connector #276-1427 Pin 1-Empty Pin 2-Purple Pin3-Yellow Pin4-Red Pin5-Shield Wire & Green Pin6 & Pin7-Gray Pin8-Blue & Black Pin9-Brown The pin numbers are on the face of the connector and are hard to see.

If your subwoofer does not work on your altec lansing speakers, more than likely you blew the subwoofer amplifier board. I have an ADA-885 system and bought it brand new back in November 2000 and has been flawlessly operating great up until this past month when my subwoofer went out but my "satellite" speakers kept working. After disassembling the subwoofer box I first noticed that the subwoofer amplifier board is seperate from the rest of the grouped boards for the dolby and satellite speakers. The subwoofer box is designed to use the air from the subwoofer to actually cool the amplifier boards inside the unit, great feature until your subwoofer goes out, that is when your main amp will more than likely fail soon after the sub amp fails, as it uses the air from the subwoofer to keep the amps cool. I know this might be an older post but hopefully I can put it in the right category to hopefully be able to help someone out in the future.
You can test the ohms of the speaker with a multi tester. It's a dual voice coil speaker, 6 ohms each.
Well my system is broke and needs another subwoofer amplifier board so if anybody reads this and has this subwoofer, I need my sub amp fixed ! or if you have the subwoofer unit maybe and nothing else to go with it but the subwoofer lights up, give me a jingle, I'd buy it from you !!
the speaker with the subwoofer may not work as the speaker needs a power supply to boost the sound from the PC.....even if you connect to the sound jack of PC using some adaptor it may not give out the required sound.....i mean it will need amplifyer, the job of the amplifyer is normaly done by the big box that comes along with the speakers (called subwoofer).....
I had the same problem and found the root cause to be the RF speaker connector at the back of the subwoofer. The male and female connectors are OK. It is the 5 male pins inside the connector and the way they connect to the female holes that is the problem. Wiggle the RF speker connector as you move it in and out until you get 100% of audio voilume back. Once you get it back, do not move the connector. Have not found a permanent solution to date beyond this.
Hi janros123 - I don't know if this will help - I have a subwoofer ACS48 that needs satellite speakers (they are blown). Want to buy my subwoofer or sell your satellites? I will buy your broken subwoofer, too...thanks, and good luck!

Ironically enough, I went on here because I have the satellites but no subwoofer! LOL, what are the odds. Anyways, if you happen to receive this information, can you please email me at email@example.com?
Like I said, I'm searching for the same exact information for a similar problem and this would REALLY help as I can't power the speakers without this.
Yes, it is fixeable, but you can carefully check this,
1) open the SUB, and see if any cable is broke or loose in the negative and positive poles.
2) check if there a loose cable on the terminals point of attach speakers.
3) other than this is a defective AMP inside and mus be change.
The problem is that you need the satallite speakers , they have the volume control on them which thats why you only hear the subwoofer.. yes , i tried other speakers to it and no sound either.So you will need the satellite speakers it come with..
The stereo -jackbus is broken if your speakers won't work and your headphones are fine. The stereo jackplug holds a little switch at the back, which moves sideways if you connect headphones. Solution is very carefully opening back end of stereo connector bus and reassembling the switch
