    You know the type... it works but if you so much as touch the wire the sound goes.
    The main speakers work 24/7 but the subwoofer has no sound depending on the cable D:

    Just remove the jack, inspect it and make sure the solder points are good, clean it up with a qtip and alcohol and you should be good. If you notice a solder point is cracked, get the soldering iron out and throw a small drop on there. It's a very easy soldering job, even if you haven't done it before, you can do it. :)
