Depending on how bad the current plug is what you can do is cut the plug down the middle (about 1/2" from the the tips of the pins) and what that will do is put you inside the plug just behind the solder points on the pins and from there ou should be able to indentify which colored wire went where and then make a diagram on paper. If the plug is not too bad off right now i would cut the cable behind the plug and trace whatever wires are still good to the tips of the pins and write their locations down before cutting the plug. Try to cut the plug as clean as possible using something like a dremel rotary tool works well, you may have to pause in cutting if the plastic starts melting too much do to heat from friction.

Try contacting Sanyo for a cord. You are describing a standard 9-pin mini DIN connector, which is available from a number of sources and could be used to make a cord.

I CANT FIND A SP PWM505 CABLE


  • Here is a list of cables for your unit from Crutchfield's.


  • If your looking for the s pin DIN cable from the sub you can get that anywhere. The 8 pin DIN is a standard cord the same across the board. Here are a couple to choose from.



  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.

No sound


To answer this one, we'll need a lot more information. The following

1. Verify your cable. There's no way to post a picture so we'll try this in text. Looking at the 5-pin DIN (called P1) with the pins to the top, number them 1 through 5 from left to right (regardless of how they may be numbered on a connector as it is unmarked on the cable). Looking at the 8-pin mini DIN (called P2) with the key at the top, number the top row 1 through 3 (left to right in all cases), the middle row 4 through 6 (pin 6 will be the one separated by a gap from the other two), number the bottom row 7 and 8.

Now, make sure that continuity exists. This is how my cable was wired as follows: P1-1 to P2-7, P1-2 to P2-8, P1-3 and P1-4 to P2-6, P1-5 to P2-1. If you do not show that each wire is good, then you either have a damaged cable or audio is not being output by the Bose control unit or your system uses a different cable wiring, which means that you will need to verify that your cable connects each 5 pin DIN to some on the 8 pin mini DIN

2. Make sure that a headphone is not inserted in the headphone jack on the side. If it is, then sound in not connected to the rear ports. It may sound silly, but someone may have connected headphones and nobody realized that they're still connected.

3. Do you have an oscilloscope? If so, then you'll need to insert wires into the 8-pin mini DIN connector for the zone you're using. Using the pinouts from step one for the cable connector will create a mirror at the Bose jack as follows, left to right, top to bottom 3, 2, 1 - 6, (gap) 5, 4 - 8, 7.

Audio comes out at pins 7 and 8. So connect your scope at those points and ground the probe by clipping it to one the RCA shields. Turn the unit on and make sure that you have a source producing signal, such as a disc or a radio station and see if you see signal. The output at these pins appears rather low, so you set your scope sensitive enough.

My Bose produced audio, but also clicking at an increasing frequency and amplitude as the unit heated up, that results in a lot of noise. I verified the wiring and output with this method.

Digital Optical port to 8-pin din


Optical digital cables can't be magically wired to copper inputs. NO digital signal can be magically connected to an analog interface and work.

Even if you could do what you propose, how would you control volume?

Why don't you just connect the BluRay to the JVC system and let IT handle the audio to the sub and satellites?

Run an optical cable to the JVC TH-C60's Optical In port. Make sure there are no tight bends in the optical cable as that will degrade its ability to transmit a signal.

The AM6 or 10 are high level input connected direct to any output of any AMP from those signal they convert down to low frequency for sub woofer

Harman kardon Audio Viseo Receiver shut down- no longer providing sound


as I understand it, these systems use a DIN plug and sometimes these DIN plugs can get damaged seperating connections inside of the plug itself, try testing these connection from the tips of each pin to the other end of the cable and see if you can find a connection for each pin. if so then you have eliminated that as the issue, also, if they are all good and you can get me a diagram of where each color goes, that would be great so I can help others with this issue in the future.
