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.
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.
You don't list the brand, but you can buy replacement knobs for many brands from http://www.pacparts.com/. Note that while the parts are very reasonably priced, you may end up paying $12 shipping for a $1 knob. If it doesn't have to be a matching knob, you may be able to find one that will fit on a radio at a yard sale or junk yard. Another possibility is to try Radio Shack. http://www.radioshack.com/search/index.jsp?kwCatId=&kw=knob&origkw=knob&sr=1
Most of the remote bass control knobs & connectors are the same, regardless of manufacturer. Granted there are different styles & connectors used, but just find one that's compatible with the amplifier you have. You don't state what amp you have (at least I don't see it in desc.) Send me some info & I'll get back to you tonight. Bruce McGowan firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
