It looks like you have posted this before. Unfortunately, I don't know what you have tried so I may be repeating some of your earlier troubleshooting.

The subwoofer needs its own power supply to function properly. if it isn't getting enough power, the sub will not work at all.

On the back of the unit, you should see a green LED when the power is turned on. Is this light on all of the time of does it fade / flicker? This would indicate the power supply is going bad and you need to replace it.;jsessionid=9B7C9D2D939336148A9036D7E7D18A12

Hello everyone. I need a cable for bose system CineMate GS. I want to connect speakers of another brand, but I need the configuration of serial cable to do it myself, someone can assist with the...

"CAUTION: Make no modifications to the system or accessories. Unauthorized alterations may compromise safety, regulatory compliance, and system performance."

That warning is not in the manual to just protect their market share. Even if you succeed in making the desired electrical connections the results may be less than stellar.

I'm not saying this IS the case but here is some Food for thought.

Bose's main claim to fame, the 901, was always based on achieving flat audio response from full-range speakers (NO WOOFERS or TWEETERS in the case of 901's) through the use of large amounts of prioprietary equalization applied to the audio signal. Another evolutionary step way in Bose amp/speaker systems was to deviate, sometimes drastically, from the 8-ohm speaker driver standard and design the mated amp to work with the selected load. THAT is just two reasons why no specs are published for the sub-parts of any BOSE SYSTEM. It's a system.

In the mix n match world of COMPONENTS specs are published so one can choose a given speaker for use with a given amp and expect electrical compatibility, frequency response and power handling.

Except for standalone passive speaker systems, mixing and matching Bose speakers with third party electronics (or vice versa) is discouraged as being potentially dangerous and at the least sonically unwise. For example, if you've ever heard how a Bose 901 Active Equalizer sounds with non-Bose 901 speakers you'd understand.

Maybe someone else can fill in the pin-outs of the cable and chime in on whether or not Brand X speakers will work with the Cinemate amps. Not knowing what other brand/model you're contemplating, it would be impossible for anyone to offer a qualified judment on that score.

I have an old Philips Amplifier which I bought 18 years ago. The Amp actually can handle 5 speakers but I only connect 2 speakers (L & R). When I play certain DVD, although the background music sounds...

If you identified the specific products involved we (and you) might be able to look at the documentation and verify the obvious answer. Voice is generally concentrated on the center channel, so, yes, a speaker there would be a good idea.

If you don't have a multi-channel rig you shouldn't feed multichannel audio to it. Maybe use the unidentified DVD player's analog output and make sure it's set to mix the channels down to stereo.

What is the low frequency driver

Usually the "low frequency driver"is the speaker that is responsible for playing the lower frequencies of the audio. Otherwise is the speaker that is in the subwoofer, or the woofer at the 2-way speakers. Do you came up with a problem with your own subwoofer or you are just asking a question?

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

We have a Denon AVR Surround Sound receiver, a Samsung HDTV, an XBox 360, an ASD-3W Denon Ipod Dock and Klipswitch speakers with a subwoofer, center channel and too bookshelf speakers. We need help...

HDMI input connect as follows:

1. Connect an HDMI cable from the Cable box to the TV/CBL HDMI input on the Denon.
2. Connect an HDMI cable from the Xbox to the DVD/HDP input on the Denon.
3. Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI out-put on the Denon to an input on the Samsung.
You don’t have to use the optical output from these to devices since the HDMI cable allows for the transfer of both audio and video, if you have them extra use them in addition to the HDMI cable and last,

4. On front of denon after you setup and assign your optical connections, if you use them, once you select TV/CBL or DVD/HDP as a source, press the input mode button to select auto
