Hello, I was wondering if the wired bass control knobs are universal. I mean if you did'nt have a bass control knob, could you use any ole one that you can buy from ebay, or some other source. I am not sure about this. all the wired bass control knobs that I have seen all seam to have the same telephone type wireing.

And here is a note from Kicker on how to make a control yourself for strapping multiple amps together: I have two or more Kicker SX or KX subwoofer amplifiers. I don' t want to use all those separate bass level controls. Is there a way to make them all work with a single Kicker control knob? Yes. You can visit your local Radio Shack or home improvement store and purchase an RJ-11 modular adapter. You then plug the sub level cables from the individual amplifiers into the adapter. Then run a cable from the adapter to a single Kicker remote knob. All amps will now work with a single knob.
It is NOT clear what you are trying to do... HOWEVER if you are attempting to extend a bass potentiometer remotely, you CANNOT use the four wire flat telephone line as it is unshielded and you will pick up hum.
that depends if the knobs or the shafts are broken.the knobs are easily replaced as they just pull off. the controls is a different problem as they are soldered into the pc board.the input selector switch will have alot of pins and the bass and treble 6 pins each.the front panel has to be removed,the lock nuts taken out and sometimes the input selector has a small pc board that is wired to the main pc on a connector,and the replacement comes with the pc board.the parts can be got from sony parts or an authorized repair depot.unless you are really good with electronics,it is best left to a pro to fix,the power supply in that unit runs on over 100 volts dc
the bass nob must have worn out, that's why it cannot stay firm when you press it in.
Get something tiny like a pin, press the bass knob in, and at the same time fix in the tiny object by the side of the knob, to hold the bass knob firm, so that it will not pop out when you let go off it.
on rockford amps, the bass control knob needs to be connected to get the maximum output (+18 db gain i believe). If you did this to the power wires, then yes, you may have at least damaged the bass control knob. Try replacing this to see if you get all of your gain back. If not, then you have damaged something inside the amp...maybe a capacitor or power supply inside. If that's the case, you'll need to get the amp looked at by an electronics repair technician or local stereo shop.
I'm wanting to know the same thing... But be careful on the pin out of the control you get.
I have an audiobahn 2300HCQ amp... Before I had the 1800. The 1800 came with a remote with 6pin remote cord. I got the 2300 used and did not get a control for it. The plug on the 2300 is a 4 pin plug... I can't figure out how to cross it over correctly to get the 1800 remote to work on the 2300.
I have tools to crimp an end... Just can't figure out the color pin out.
