Question about Sharp HTDP2500 System
I have a sharp HT DP 2500 system. It has proprietary speaker connection bus plastic connectors that I cannot figure out the proper connections for. (I don't have the factory wiring harness to plug in. I bought a schematic, but it is for an HT DP2500W.Sharp customer support has been no help at all. Any idea where I can get a diagram for the proper hook ups?Thank you
Hi..have you gotten an answer for this question...I just googled this model number..and about the second one down is the factory service manual...for the model you and I have...there is a way to go inside and solder wire to each speaker leg to make it work that way without the special plastic connector that was the original..

Do you have speaker wire if not you will need some, the wire is cheap about $5 bucks a roll your local department store will have it. You see a red and black tabs on the back of the unit and on the back of each speakers you push down and stick one wire in the hole. red will be your + and black will be - The two surround go on the back wall behind your seat.The center will sit on top of TV and the sattalite speakes go beside the left and right side of TV. and the sub sits on the floor in hidding behind something or under a table. (P.S, Make sure the wire is shaved about 1/4 of inch before you stick in the wire DO NOT plug the power cord in, intill you hook up all the speakers this could damage the unit. You do not need a sub woofer, if you have one great If not don't worry that will not damage the unit it has a internal switch to turn on/off the sub woofer The sub woofer offers extra deep bass that you can't get from the sattalite speakers.)

The source of your program will determine how you hook things up, and if you want to (if it's possible) route the video through the Sharp as well. Some systems have video switching, so you can run all sources through the system, and have a single video cable running to the TV.
If you are using a DVD player, typical Pro-Logic requires a red/white RCA cable from the DVD player to the amplifier unit. The video cable, either a 4-pin S-Video or a yellow composite cable, will run to the amplifier unit for switching purposes, or ditect to an input on the TV.
You can also run red/white RCAs fron the HDTV to an input on the Sharp. You likely have to set the TVs audio output to "fixed" or "external", which will disable the TVs speakers, while putting out sound to the Sharp.

SOURCE: looking for owners manual free
Sharp support from their website is very poor and I don't think you'll get a free one from anywhere.
This is the closest to free I could find.

You should be able to connect these but you'll need some extra adapters/converters/cables. The Sharp HT-SB400 has analog audio inputs (http://www.sharp.co.uk/cps/rde/xchg/gb/hs.xsl/-/html/product-details.htm?product=HTSB400&cat=10500 ). The Samsung UE40C6000 LED TV has a digital (optical) output and a headphone jack (http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/tv-audio-video/television/led-tv/UE40C6000RKXXU-spec ).
With a RCA (F/F) to 3.5 mm (M) adapter, you may be able to connect the headphone audio out to your sound bar directly. This is an example: http://www.cyberguys.com/product-details/?productid=4730 . I'm not sure if this will automatically disable the TV speakers.
The other option is to get a digital audio to analog audio converter. One of these is http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Audio-Analog-Converter/dp/B0013LWK3A . You'll also need the optical digital cable in addition to the RCA audio cable that you have. With this you'll have to follow the manual for turning on the digital audio output on the TV (under the Sound menu) and turn off the TV speakers.
I hope this helps.
