Hey Everyone,

I would like to replace an aux cable for my Harman/Kardon Soundsticks 2 (2009). The sound is only coming from one speaker and only comes back to the other when I move the cable around. So I figured there is probably something wrong with the cable/aux output.

I saw the cable is simply connected with some sort of plug to the motherboard (its probably not called like that :D). Could any one tell me if it is possible to buy such a cable, and which one I would need to buy?

I no nothing of electronics, but just plugging it in and out looks pretty straight forward. Assuming its possible to open up the subwoofer.

HI Mesuke. I did a google for the ver. HK II's which resulted in basically one review. (and a pic, cool) In it, the only negative remark was about the spkr cable. Maybe the techs where dreaming about the ver BT III even then.
My advice is unplug it from the wall. Safety First. Find a good matching screwdriver, and go for it. Be gentile with the plastic. You may get in, or, you may find yourself with a sub-woofer, 4 screws on the floor, and no luck with a seamlessly glued cover. (to stop rattles, vibration, and breathing at the seam, etc.). Either way, you are taking your first steps to DIY. That system and the name (not a cheep knockoff) makes the attempt worthwhile. Let us know how you made out.
The plug shown in your pic is a very common for use on PCB's. There are more than one physical size of that type though, [for, from hand-held battery interface to large amounts of power], so check that.
Most electronic stores and many on line would have the most popular sizes and the pins for them. I am in Canada which is not a quick hop from Germany so i couldn't help with local suppliers but i am sure that is info many others could, and, there is much on line.
I would look first at two areas. One is the wire at the entrance to the cabinet. Wire breaking internally due to ware from movement, and, secondly at the plug right on the board. If the cable got a good tug at some point it may have broken the solder joint between the socket pin and the board but even that is fixable. Luck and welcome.
