Question about Altec Lansing MX5021 System
If the cable still works fine, consider yourself lucky I suppose.
Here's my cable refurbishment advice:
Quickest cheapest fix - wrap the damaged cable in plain old PVC tape (black electricians tape).
Level 2 fix - replace the metallic shielding by purchasing a roll of adhesive aluminum heater duct tape for a place like Home Depot, then wrap with PVC tape.
Level 3 fix - protect your refurbished cable from future guinea pig damage with a length of flexible plastic conduit, a product sold at places like The Source for 'tiding' or bundling several cables together.
I hope that helps.

As it is PC connected system, you can change the wires. Wires of good quality [Monster is preferable] must be used. The input connection to the subwoofer box, from PC oly should be connected with two core shield wire. There is good quality shield wire can be purchased from most of the standard electronic spare parts shop. Never use more than enough lengh of sheld wire to connect between PC and subwoofer. As lengh increses, there is a possibility that some stray HUM noise also enter, and can be heard through the sub. So use enough lenght to connect. Extra speakers, whatever type it may be, can connected with Monster Cable. Care should be taken when you solder the speaker cable, that speakers has both positive and negative terminals marked on it. All the positive terminals of all speakers must be connected to positive speaker rail only. Otherwise, sound effect will decrease. If you have any more doubts, and need anymore assistance, feel free to get me by Fixya. OK.
