I was using an old pair of Altec Lansing speakers (ACS295), but they suddenly died on me. The connector from the subwoofer to the satellite speakers seems to be bad; is there any way to repair it? It uses an unusual connector (not the standard jack)

If it can't be repaired, could you suggest an inexpensive and good speaker set? I'd like it to be 2.1 and be less than $50 USD.

Thanks for your help.

EDIT: The speakers are still working, my old desktop just had a random fit of stupidity. However, the connector between the satellites and subwoofer still needs to be messed with quite a bit before it works right, so I still think the connector is going bad.

What kind of a connector does it have? And how're your soldering skills?

repair of consumer electronics is a thing of the past. there once was a tiome where people would get their tv replaced, now they just buy a new one because its cheaper than getting it fixed, and most companies do not make spair parts for their products, nor do they make repair manuals.

The only exception is if you have good solder like C38368 mentions...

I've never soldered anything at all, so I guess repairing it is out of the question. I'd post pics of the connector, but the batteries in my camera just died so it'll take awhile to charge.

Since I most likely can't repair it, could anyone suggest a good set of inexpensive speakers and subwoofer to replace them?

Logitech's Z4 range is quite good.
