Default Kicker replacement pots?

Any place to get replacement top-side pots for the kicker amplifiers? I have noticed that more and more of these guys are starting to develop opens and shorts in the pots.

Where to obtain replacements? They have 6 legs so i have no idea.

Have you tried buying directly from Kicker?

No, unsure how to do that. These are the KX series I need pots for. Old.

I sent them an email, but I doubt i will get anywhere with it. You cant even buy kicker products from dealers right now because they are restructuring their entire product line, and you have to purchase in bulk now like rockford/JL to get anything new.

so we will see.

In other words, there are no generic part replacements for the pots?

Mouser has some that may be suitable but there are a LOT of variables when looking for replacements.

value
pin configuration
frame type
shaft type
shaft length
taper (log, reverse log, linear)

Buying from the manufacturer makes it much easier.
