SOURCE: Bose Acoustimass 15 woofer, Replacement of RCA female connector

On the end opposite of the jacks (top of the sub opposite connectors) in the exact middle, there is a ratchet looking device (flashlight and magnifying glass reveal the little culprit) with a very small flat screw driver rotate the piece CCW until a small tab is protruding from the middle. Pu the palm of your hand on the plastic case and give it a small whack (in the direction of the jacks) it will move about a 1.2 inch. Lift straight up and the case will come off and reveal the connectors. Trust me, get a flashlight and magnifying glass and peer through the small crack between the cover and the box, you will see the little notch (encoder looking) rotating wheel

I have the same question. I just called Bose at 1-877-210-3782 (prompt 6) and they have two solutions:

1. 20 foot Input extension - $25
2. Input adaptor - $12 (you can run your own speaker cable to the input adaptor)

You can buy it on ebay but it's cheaper just to make one. If you can solder, all you need is a female 15-pin d-type connector and a bunch of speaker wire. Here is a diagram of the connections.

SOURCE: Hi. I got a Bose Acoustimass

Do you have any plan to use the Bose Acoustimass 20 sub/amp in it original form?
Please double check the pins count.
Popular Bose unit has 8,9 or 13 pins.
=====

A Bose third party vendor does sell a direct cable from the Bose Acoustimass 20 to two RCA and 1/8" stereo jack.
You can open the link HERE
Full site HERE
I'm sure you can find other cable vendor at a lower price.
======
I do not recommend you to open the Bose Acoustimass 20 and get the two set of wires out of the box.
It may cause damage to the casing.
======
On the DIN plug.
With notch / dimple facing the ground.
From let to right
1 = RED negative
2 = White negative
3 = RED positive
4 = White positive
5 center = un-use.

Please use an ohm meter to verify the resistance between1 to 4 and 2 to 4 before you start hooking up to the amp.

Please keep my posted on the project via email.
