Bump..!

I have a GS 3-2-1 system (series III, I think) and I am without the interconnect (acoustimass) link cable.

I'm not paying Bose ~$180AUD for the replacement...

kucor88 's post seems to confirm that this is possible, although his uses a different input? The one mine uses is the square, 15(?)-pin connection.

I'm just wondering if anyone is able to clarify his work, or provide a better (translated) explanation.

Thanks in advance
I use a 15-wire cable to connect the music module unit and the subwoofer. The key point is using needles of 0.6mm for the 11 small holes and 0.8mm for the two larger holes. Remember every color wire on every hole must be matched on both sides. Every needle must by broken to about 1 cm length and after the copper wire is attached to the needle hole, fixing it by soldering. When all the wires are well inserted, use a plastic glue gun to freeze the insertion in position, then the link is well established, then you saved 180AUD.

I have made a link cable with a 15-wire cable and needles. Use 0.8mm for the two large holes and 0.6mm for the rest 11 holes. Solder every wire to the needle holes. After inert all needles into the socket holes on both sides of the music module and subwoofer in the corresponding positions. After insertion, fix the needles with a plastic gun.

Ingenious, but Bose gear is just not worth that much trouble.

Wow never seen such a complex cable or repair job .. was the sound worth all that work ?
A working used one is probably cheap
321 system is only $899 new ?
