Using computer speakers with the panasonic sa-he70
I have Logitch z5300e speakers that i would like to use for home theater.Since they are amped --i'm having a problem finding pre amped outs. The only one i see is a preamped subwoofer.I have 6 channels for what appears to be exclusive to dvd ----Is this rear receiver section only for enhanced dvd and any hook up will result in using the inferior chipset of the cheap dvd player? I would like to use the strong points of the receiver (dolby prolgic2 ) I have 3 stereo plugs from my Logitech control box Y into RCAs but can't figure out the best or perhaps only jacks.Wht is the best thing to do here?
Re: using computer speakers with the panasonic sa-he70
I had a similar problem. In order not to mess up the jacks from the speakers I bought some mini jack to stereo rca adapters. I cut off the rca jacks from the end and then is just a matter of figuring out witch ones are left and right channels. For the subwoofer it's best to figure out which one is the sub channel so you don't have to cut off the rca plug from that one.

Hi, The sub woofer does have a level control, is this indicating that the level is moving?
Woofers are a power device and usually active, i.e. needing a power amplifier to feed them. If this is a stand alone speaker though try using an AA battery on the wires. you should here a click when you touch a battery on it. If you can see the cone move out then the wire that goes to the + of the battery is the red or positive wire, if not turn the battery around. do not use anything higher that AA i.e.1.5V If you hear a click the speaker is ok and the amplifier is either faulty or not turned up.

Not knowing anything about your 'external' amp or how you want it to function the only thing you could do is feed it the analog stereo output of the SA-HE70 from one of its OUTs (Tape or VCR). It won't be volumed-controlled by the SA-HE70.
That aside, these types of systems are designed as a package to be used as a unit. Otherwise they might have standard connectors. Another closely-related Panasonic SA-HT system might work for you but I doubt anyone manufactures anyhting to adapt non-standard speakers to standard electronics.
They actually say on page 9 of the manual:
"Use only supplied speakers
Using other speakers can damage the unit, and sound quality will
be negatively affected.
I would interpret that to mean 'use these speakers only with similar Panasonic electronics'.
