you could try  this -at your own risk :)-  :

                               10MOhm resistor
piezocable(- connection)_______/\/\/\______________I-Cube ground

                               R
piezocable(+ connection)_______/\/\/\______________I-Cube input pin

                                               N/C I_Cube Vcc pin

i used this with circular piezo  transducers in september it works nice
with I-Cube.

you should we avare of voltage level. piezo transducers can reach very high
voltage level. It should always be less than 5 V. You must adjust R (it
could be 0) to be enough to limit voltage to 5 V when response of
piezocable is highger.

excuse my english. anyway, i think you can understand the idea.  if you
want more details, e-mail me please.

thank you, thank you, thank you !!!!
