Open Question

I want to hook up a Yamaha YST-MS50 subwoofer to my stereo system however I do not see any input jack. There are 2 speaker jacks on back, 1 RCA left speaker and a multi pin jack for right speaker. Can I ad a RCA female jack for input and how do I do about doing that. I just want to use this subwoofer, no satelites.

SOURCE: Yamaha YST-MSW10 subwoofer quits after about 10 minutes

This speaker has a feature that shuts it down automatically when there is no audio signal present for a period of time. Unfortunately, the threshold is set a bit too high so, if you're listening at low volume the speaker will turn off even if there is signal present.

I found this posting because I was looking for a circuit diagram so I could bypass the auto-off feature on my MSW10.

You can connect the Yamaha YST MS50 speakers to any audio source that relies on a 3.5mm jack. The YST MS50 should have two audio inputs, so you can use one of them to connect the speakers to your computer. If you don't have a 3.5mm male to male cable, then you can buy that at any electronics store or online.

I obtained a pair of Yamaha YST MS50 speakers with no subwoofer. Can they be adapted to use a different sub, such as the inexpensive Yamaha YST MSW5? The clear problem is in different cabling.

Hooking up a dual line in from a single line out


I would recommend a run to Radio Shack and buy a RCA splitter, I have one that does 1 rca to 2 rca's. Just check what type of ends you'll want for both sides as in male or female. God bless, hope this helps.

How do i make this woofer work with my polroid tv


OK, it looks from what I can tell you need a 1/4" stereo plug for the input to your speaker system. The output from the TV is either RCA jacks or maybe a 1/8" sub mini stereo jack. You can likely go to Radio Shack or an audio store and purchase a cable that has the 1/4" stereo plug on one end and a 1/8" sub mini stereo plug on the other. That cable would mute the TV internal speaker or if you do not want to mute the TV speakers you can get a cable with the 1/4" stereo plug on one end and the L and R audio, RCA (phono) plugs on the other. That would give you both. RCA plug and 1/4" plugs are pretty easy to install if can not find the correct cables. Good Luck. The Yamaha unit looks to be self powered so impedance matching or load on the TV audio amps should not be a problem.

Yamaha YST-MS50...how does it work ??


I have a YST-MS30 myself. Judging by Yamaha's site, the MS50 looks like it's built pretty much the same way. The subwoofer by itself is pretty useless. The power switch and volume controls are built into the right satellite speaker. There is a level control for the subwoofer, but overall system volume is controlled by the satellite speaker. You also need the power supply (15 volts, 1.2 amps for the MS30, but probably different ratings for the MS50 with its higher power).

Actually, it would be possible to open the subwoofer and puzzle out which pins in the connector you would need to jumper together to turn it on, and you might be able to find a suitable power supply. But it seems like more trouble than it's worth. Complete new system with comparable specs are around $100 from online vendors.

Lost the wire that goes from the control speaker cube of my yst-ms50 to the computer audio output. Were can I get a replacement wire? What should I ask for?


you should be able to get a replacement at any computer or electronics store (best buy, radio shack etc.) -

just tell them what you told us - one end (the one going to the speaker) is probably an rca jack while the other (going to the computer) is a standard audio input (3.5mm plug)

Connect powered subwoofer


  • If your receiver has a dedicated subwoofer line level output, we recommend connecting your subwoofer to this jack. Most receivers will have just one (mono) subwoofer output, while quite a few subs require two inputs. You can use an RCA "Y" adapter cord , which is a cable with one female RCA jack at one end, and two male RCA plugs at the other. Some receivers require menu settings (such as "sub-on" or "front speakers-small") that must be made before the sub output will be active.
