I was given the powered subwoofer from a 3 pc computer speaker system, origially sold by DELL. I don't have the two small speakers which contain the power switch. I want to use the subwoofer as part of my stereo system. I need the wiring diagram of the subwoofer to figure out how to power it. The input cable is similar to S Video with many incoming wires. Any idea how I can find the power leads and rewire the subwoofer?? Thanks.

6 Part1 Ok, I got some e-mails about this so, that make me get back to work with this. I just tried something else and I made it work. As I said, from the black wire or #1, this is power from the power supply, 17volts c.c.. We need this just in case wont start for first time just touching the wire # 4.

5 Part4 For the 10,11 and 12 this are the input from the computer. You just need a cable with a stereo plug on each side to connect the green connector to your audio out on your PC. Only left to do is how to turn it off. If you need more help just let me know. Please if this is useful for somebody just email me. Dell and Harman Kardon can blame on me, I don't care, their customer service is useless. jobrum@inbox.com J.W

5 Part3 8 will be the outcome left signal and 9 could be the right. Between 6-8 and 7-9 you can just connect togheter each pair to test it or if you want to control the volume, you need a double potentiometer or two singles.. Could be any kind. The value could be any between 50 to 100kohm. Those potentiometer have 3 pins or connectors. Just connect it 6 at center and 8 in one side for one channel. 7 at center and 9 on one side for the other channel.

4 Thanks to jobrum for the jumper wiring. I opened the woofer, soldered jumpers between the following pairs and the woofer works great: Pin 1 to Pin 4 Pin 6 to Pin 8 Pin 7 to Pin 9 I just use the woofer along with a pair of cheap computer speakers. Both are connected by 1/8th inch jacks to the PC using a Y connector.

4 Part2 After I did that, I just plug in it or unplug it. I didn't know how to turn it off yet. # 2 and 3 are the "+" to each satellite speaker, you just need to send the "-" of each speaker to the #5 (ground or negative, any way you want to call it). You can use any kind of speaker. Now the mysterious 6,7,8 and 9. From 6 & 7 the signal is going to the 8 & 9, so maybe 6 is left channel income signal, and 7 could be the right.

4 I also was given an HK395 Subwoofer WITH the speakers but missing the Stereo Input cord. I am about to list this on EBAY. I am assuming the cord is standard and easily purchased.

4 I'm working on it. I got the IC diagram and trying to figure how works. for now I just got the black wire( I numbered as #1) is +17 volts coming from the power supply( maybe to feed the LED and to send power to the other 2 IC, through the speaker switch, # 2 and 3 are the + to each satellite speaker. #4 is related with standby pin on the amplifier IC. , #5 is the ground. # 6,7,8,9 I'm working on it, # 10,11 and 12 are the line in from the computer. Any comments my e_mail is jobrum@inbox.com

3 I think we need to find the pin out diagram and rig a device that can funtion as an on-of swith. I took off the back very easily and see the incoming wires. I am curious about all wires being white and one being black. With so many wires I think the electronics are some sort of cross over to divide the tones up. Let me know what you find out.

3 Thanks for the feedback. You're right, all the white wires and one black (chassis ground?) are confusing. We do need a wiring diagram. The printed circuit board has the markings "WAN NIEN 04V0" and "MP 1.0- 2001.4.3" as well as "Model HK395(P)". I've searched for these without luck. If you can search something out, let me know! Thanks.

3 Hi all, I have the subwoofer AND the satellites. The problem is that one of the pins on the orange 9-pin plug broke off. The rows have 3/4/2 pins -- the broken one is last row, left side, so if you count them starting from top left, it's 8. Any advice? At this point I might just look for compatible satellites rather than rewire everything. Thanks much.

2 Hello. All I need is the 9-pin orange connecter to this HK395. Does anyone know where I can order this part? Can someone please help? Thank you.

2 One thought is to take a photo of the circuit board and post it on a audio electronics forum asking for assistance. I would suppose people who build / fix stereo speakers for a hobby or occupation would be able to look at it and understand how the device operates and and give solid information just from their visual inspection. Thanks for anyone's input in this.
