. Remove means exactly that; excise those parts, for being the "cancer" that they are. C3/R2 and C4/R3 are frequency shaping networks that boost HF info. Those parts are "cancer" too and need to be removed. The less the I/P signal is "massaged", the better. That's HIFI.
Forget what I said about additional fixed resistance in series with the controls. Just use a pair of 1 MOhm mono pots. and connect them directly to the I/P signal wires.
Mouser stocks low cost Alpha Taiwan controls. Look here
. You want audio, AKA log., taper parts.
Your local "Rat Shack" may be a source too.
Thanks for the info,,, seems there is a lot more parts in here then need be,,,I think I got it now,,, remove the original tone pots and VC pots, and replace w/2 one meg audio pots, which will act as VC/Balance.... also remove the C & R associated with them...
I have to order some caps for the Motorola this morning, I'll get the pots also...
I appreciate all the time you've spent, tutoring me, as I'm sure all the other forum members you consistently help do also....
