Best bet would be to just strip the wire with a wire stripper or utility knife and twist the bare ends together to fix the connection. A little electrical tape around those wires and you should be almost good as new. Of course you might notice some difference in quality but I'm pretty sure the only way round that would be replacing the cable.
Try it out and let me know how it works out for you. If you know how to solder it might be a good idea to solder the connection as well.

I did the same! Thanks for suggesting a call to Customer Support (800)258+3288. The guy didn't seem overly pleased to help, but he did promise to send me a new power supply. Also, he said that they don't make the iM7 anymore, but I had already found out that the iM9 uses the same power supply. I, too, will wait and see.

Your adapter is Part No. AVX300-A6859, Model No. 9701-00748-IUND.
Or You could get a universal that is rated for output of 18volt DC, 650ma, Center Positive.
I have used a 15volt DC, 900 ma with no problem, but I never run the volume high.

Unfortunately the subwoofer supplies the power to the amp on the speakers, Once again I have the solution,
These speakers are factory molded so that the only way to open them is to break the factory seal
this can be done by sharply rapping the seam at the bottom of the speaker with a heavy screwdriver handle or something similar.
Now you need to supply power to the amp...If you do not have the subwoofer you will need a 4.5volt power supply, after removing the board from the casing find the red white and black wires connecting
the orange plug wire to it, Personally I removed the entire cord from the unit, shough you can splice in at this point if you desire.
Connect the white lead to your posative on your power supply by either splicing or soldering, connect the ground to the heat sink using the screw that is already there holding the chip to the sink. reassemble the speaker.....super glue... and you are now in business.

Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.
Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.
OK now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom tool-bar.
Click Open Volume Control.
A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.
If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.
Put a normal music CD in your CD/DVD player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.
Double check again and make sure it all works.
If you still have any problems check your hardware list and make sure thee are no exclamation marks by any sound hardware (excl. speakers)
These need to be sorted out first. for that you need to know what your sound card is and download the drivers (or update them)
