SOURCE: no digital SoundTouch control center Logitech Z-5500

The very same problem I ran into when I received my new ones today...

But from the get-go, I figured that I could either use the speakers in conjunction with the new set to create more sound...or use the speakers with other systems.

Keep in mind however that speakers from one system may not act or sound the same on another system.  The difference being that one set of speakers could be your standard 8-ohm speakers where another set could be...say...  4-ohm.  Typically, the less resistance a speaker has, the better quality it is and the more sound it can put out without taking damage from the higher current.  (Lower number = better.)  You can mix speakers of variable resistances if you like.  It shouldn't be a problem - UNLESS you are going to be using them at higher volumes. If that is the case then you are going to be pushing out more current through the speakers.  The lower-resistance speakers may handle it just fine...but those with higher resistance have a higher resistance for a reason.  (Normally that is because they can not take the higher wattage.)  Otherwise you may simply experience different results in sound quality.

Be aware, however....  Depending on the quality of the speakers and their manufacturer; this may not always be the case.  It is simply a general principle of electronics and a good one to work by.

Me?  Given that I now have EIGHT satellites and TWO center channels now...  I'm going to attempt putting two speakers to each channel and elevate the second one.  This should turn my office into a veritable ocean of sound!  :)

As for a cabling or pinout schematic...  You'd have to specify for what exactly.  An educated guess would tell one that you want to possibly create your own box of sorts to control the sound system.

It's probably not worth your time.  If you really wanted to, however...  You might consider creating your own very basic inbput/output system for it that would include an amp system to drive the sub and use crossovers for the satellites.  If one could figure out the internal systems of the sub-woofer, you would most likely be able to use the amp and any I/O system that is built into the sub.  That would require a bit of electronics background, a soldering iron and most likely a LOT of patience.  There is more involved in that process than I could explain here.  (I haven't even opened up my old sub yet.  Should be fun...  Looks like it just takes a hex key to the front of the sub to open.)

Whatever you do.... PLEASE be careful!  There are going to be plenty of amplifier circuits in there...and I can tell you from experience that they can give you QUITE a shock.  (Or even explode; as in one situation I experienced.)

Any more questions?  Let me know.  But that's just about it.

Speakers All Cut out Including Sub When Music is Played Loud


UNPLUG THE GREEN WIRE FROM THE COMPUTER AND PLUG IT INTO A CD PLAYER IF IT WORKS BETTER ON A CD PLAYER THAN THE COMPUTER IT SELF THERE MAYBE A PROBLEM WITH THE SOUND CARD AND ALSO TRY THESE STEPS I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU I AM SURE ONE OF THEM WILL WORK.

1. Please ensure that the all the connections between the satellite speakers and the subwoofer are firmly connected.
2. Next, please connect the green colored 3.5mm audio jack to another audio device such as an iPod or an MP3 player.
3. Ensure that the SoundTouch remote control is firmly connected to the back of the subwoofer.
4. Connect the power cord from the subwoofer and connect it to another single power outlet in your house. If you have an automated voltage regulator (AVR), please connect the power cord through the AVR instead of connecting it directly to a power outlet in your house.
5. Power up the speaker system and check whether the power button on the SoundTouch remote control will light up.
6. Turn on the Matrix Mode ON. This option is on the SoundTouch remote control. This is to ensure all speakers from the speaker system will produce audio that will be played from the audio device.
7. Play audio from the audio device. Check and see whether the all the speakers will produce audio being played from the audio device.

IF NONE WORK TRY THESE STEPS:
