ok Im still pot bound!!

As I understand:

terminal 1 = input
terminal 2 = output
terminal 3 = gnd

at the moment I have input & output wired but gnd goes strainght from the phono to the gnd on the board = full volume no control.

Would the gnd wired from phono to terminal 3 then to gnd on the board sort this?

here is the spec of my pot

im confused.......please halp (because even with only one ear working this is annoying ) There are so many different wiring 'options' espoused on the net...........

according to http://sound.westhost.com/pots.htm 3 is input, 2 is output and 1 is gnd AAARRRRGGGGHHHHHHH

Just use you mm to find different points of pot. If connected to 1 and 3, you should get total resistance of pot. If connected to 2 and 3, you should be able to vary resistance. Consider what a volume pot does and simply use mm to figure out what goes where.

okay, throwing cat out woke wife so I got banished too!!

All I can discern fro the above is that terminal 2 is output. I think........
O crap I dont know. How can build a NP KT and fail at sorting a pot of all things?

'sneaks back to bed as wife snoring' - no dear you don't snore (much) must be the cat.......

Depends on how wide a 'sweet spot' you need. Tractrix beams with increasing frequency much more than a multi-cell.

I'll be running 600/650 absolute lowest down a room 11' wide and prefer a wide sound spread as possible as possible. Sound stage is usually an illusion these days, mastered into a recording rather than carefully coaxed from the actual performance of years gone buy

chalk up 2 for multicells!!


Pano is a 'cell type guy (no I dont mean top bunk, keeps a pet cricket and steals your meds)

So thats 3 to the multicells!!!

And me makes

well 4 and I'm the dealer so house wins!!!
