this is the power it expects. the little 3 tipped wire is usually connected to the soundcard if you wish to use the "normal cdplayer" function. so I guess sound goes through it.

I guess you need to hook it up to an amplifier and you're set.

I would meter the wire colors first. I coulda swore that yellow was 5V and red was 12V..... (wish i had a power suply around to check..)

Hiroshimator is correct. Yellow is 12V, Red is 5V.
