Default Need help idetifying this 50k pot!!!

I have this 50k pot salvaged from an old PC speaker set. I need to know if it is stereo or mono. It is switched. I'm thinking of using this for a SURE 4x100 amp.

It looks to have 5 pins for connection- 3 pins for the pot and 2 pins for the SPST switch.
So it is a 'mono' pot. For stereo you need a double-gang pot with two sets of 3 pins for the pots.

Forgive my NOOB-ness, but how did the manufacturer of the pc speakers it came out of, get it to run stereo? I mean...the channels were correct and it also turned the set on and off. I am just confused.

Well, it puzzled me as well!
You are sure there are only 5 pins on your pot, as in the spec sheet you posted?

If it has 5 pins, then it's mono with a switch. If 6 pins, then stereo, no switch.
