Awesome! I think you are reading the Ohms right. I think the X2 does refer to a 6-pin pot, and if the amp is stereo, then I suspect the pots are dual-ganged--the kind that contains two pots which turn together with the shaft, not the kind with two shafts like this one: 25K and 50K ohm Dual Ganged Potentiometer CTS 1377852: In Stock Buy Now | West Florida Components .OK thanks very much. I got the amp with the pots already gone, only the pins from them are left. However, I think you are correct in that all of the information I need is printed on the amps PCB. Underneath where the "gain" pot would be is printed "B50KX2", and underneath the "bass boost" pot is printed "C2K5X2".
I cant figure out what the first letter means, but I think I know what the rest means. So I believe the first pot would be a 50k ohm pot, and the second would be a 2500 ohm pot. I believe X2 means that it is a 6 pin pot as opposed to a 3 pin.
You're not likely to find much useful at Radio Shack, and what you do buy will be hideously overpriced.OK well now maybe you can help me choose the pots? Id like to get these from Radio Shack, but they dont have any 6 pin pots. Could I use a 3 pin pot or might this result in some sort of loss of sound quality? Also, if I did use a 3 pin pot, would I get the same ohm rating?
