Question about Altec Lansing ATP 3W Computer Speakers
I have an altec lansing atp3 Speaker and the right satellite subwoofer jack (orange connector) broke. What I did was strip the covers and tried connecting and fixing and soldering it back. The problem is, I am not familiar with the setup of the wires and screwed it up. HELP!
Dell (Altec Lansing) A425 Subwoofer Pinouts
This is a standard female DB-9 serial port.
Here are the pinouts.
Pin 1 = Left Speaker Out +
Pin 2 = Left Speaker Out - (Common Ground)
Pin 3 = Left Line In +
Pin 4 = Right Line In +
Pin 5 = Left/Right line In - (Common Ground)
Pin 6 = Right Speaker Out +
Pin 7 = Right Speaker Out - (Common Ground)
Pin 8 = Power A
Pin 9 = Power B
Jumper (short) Power A to B to turn on.
If you want a volume control you need to put one on the inputs. You will buy buy a stereo volume control or potentiometer.
Here is some info on how to do this.

Speaker is bad or the cable may have come loose. Has it been knocked around? If so it may have pulled the cable loose inside the speaker, try playing a song and wiggle the wire and push the wire in gently to see if it starts to play if it does you have found your problem. If not then the speaker is bad and I don't remember if you can pull it apart and buy a new speaker to install in it. Thanks for using Fix-ya and if this helps please rate this free question.

SOURCE: sliced control cord
Not quite sure how many cores you sliced then soldered. Did you repair a figure-of-eight (two co-axial cables stuck together) or was it two inner wires with a braid over both (round)? Can you give more info or a picture? Just want to help. Regards
