I apologize for not giving enough info the first time. I should've known better but I think my mind was worn out by then. I contacted Boston Acoustics and they want me to send it to them for repairs which I'm sure will have a ridiculous price tag. They wouldn't give me the part number or any info at all. I live in Point Pleasant, WV but as for parts dealers I'm most likely better off shopping online. As for the specs on the potentiometer all I can give you is what I've figured out... 50k -- the total shaft is 15cm in length, the first 5cm of that is threaded for attachment -- diameter of shaft looks to be 1/8" -- most length of the shaft is flattened a bit down one side, looks like a "C" -- the pot is a bit rectangular with 3 main pins and 2 board attachment pins -- measures about 3/8"W x 3/16"thick x 7/16L -- there is also a "B" near the 50k marking and a number along the side of the pot 9924. Hopefully this info is more helpful!! I guess my internet skills are not so good since I've had no luck finging this thing. Thanks again!!

Re: more info for you
The pot is a 50k ohm audio taper pot with an integrated switch. The shaft is called a "D" shaft and is used with knobs that have a set screw. The 3 pins are the for the resistance with the center pin being the wiper. The other two pins are for the on & off switch.
It's going to be hard to find the exact replacement without knowing the manufacturer of the pot. It looks like the one you have is soldered to a PC board and the pins have to be in the right spot on the new pot order to match up with the PC board.
What you can do is buy one with solder terminals. Rotate the pot so that the terminals are facing up and just solder wires from the terminals to the PC board. If the shaft is to long, you can cut it down with a hacksaw.
I am looking for sites for you to call. here's a few I found thus far:
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.

1998 model; I think maybe it is too old... time for a new one... when it gets old, the rings become worn and gas can leak from them. This causes a loss in compression. To fix the problem you need new rings or even a rebore...this will be expensive and more than the car is worth.... probably
take it to the garage and ask how much they will charge you... they should give you a free quote
Make sure that you've fully pushed in the jack to the sound card.....maybe you've not connected the jack into the correct socket on your soundcard as there are usually 3 identical sockets...but only 1 is the correct one. Sometimes colour-coded green. Try it in each one in turn. If you have headphones, try plugging them in as you will hear sound in them when you've got the correct socket!
The connection you made is wrong. You have to connect the phones form the IPod to any available line in of your amplifier - audio system using a cable like this
This cable is common known as 3.5mm male jack to 2 male RCA.
In case you'd like a link to buy on line this cable or if a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer. If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Another thing to keep in mind is suppost is working on what info they have. The speakers you have were manufactured over 3 years ago and are not being producted now. So if you have had them less than 6 months i would let support know this so they can get you an RMA. The big thing you will need is proof of purchase like the receipt or a credit card statement with the purchase on it.
The reason you got the reply that you got is since these speakers are out of production then most of the people that would be contacting them that have the speaker would be out of warranty. So in this case they missed the part about when you purchased them, if you included it.
So I would get back with support to see what they can do for you about getting your speakers fixed.
Let me know if you have any other problems orr questions
so like you mention your problem that you have problem with speaker sound problem so i tell you sir that you better search for a good sound card that could match your cheapset there are now day's different sort's of sound card available in the market depend on your use & need requirement most of them do complain this issue b'cause the sound card which come on the chip set does not support 5.1 channel surround system so better consult to a well known hardware engineer for this computer issue untill then have happy computing & see you soon sir...!
If you mean that your Windows desktop does not fill your screen, use the monitor screens menu to adjust the settings and make it fit the screen.
If you mean the windows you view within your desktop do not expand to the edge of the screen, click the middle icon in the top right corner - between the _ and the x this should maximise the windows.
For further info you will need to post more information about what equipment makes and models you are using. May also be better if you posted your problem in the correct section. This issue has little to do with speakers me thinks.
Let us know how you get on.
