Question about Altec Lansing ATP 3W Computer Speakers
My 6 year old son pulled the right speaker (the one with the volume controls on it) and the wires pulled out. My husband tried to fix it but despite his efforts, not only does the right speaker not work, but neither the left speaker or subwoofer will work now. Any advice on hooking it up wothout the right speaker? Or maybe a diagram for rewiring the broken one? please help!
I just inherited a ATP3 subwoofer only!
Does anyone know if I can run a left and a right speaker from a different manufacturer with my Altec subwoofer???

The only way to fix,is to colour code them back together,or go spend some more $$$ on new ones....later

It is very difficult to rewire the right speaker( the one with the controls). The black cable contains an orange and black pair which drive the "big" speaker in the base. The white wire has the wires for the controls. That white wire is .090 in in dia. Peel back the white pvc insulation and you will find a layer of aluminum foil which is intended to shield the control wires.Then there is another layer of insulation. Peel that insulation back and you find SIX color coded lacquer insulated wires. Each wire is .010 in in dia. If you attempt to solder the severed wires together you will doubtlessly melt the lacquer and short the cable out. Twisting the wires together without removing the lacquer won't work. The satellite speakers were intended to be non-repairable, thats why the case is glued together.
The best bet is throw the right speaker in the trash and try to purchase a replacement from Altec or find a replacement in a flea market etc.
