Replacement part or schematic for Cambridge Soundworks computer speakers

Hi, I need to replace the bass level control, but can't be sure which potentiometer will work best. CSW was no help at all. The part is labeled "TB50K Y", but form my research the naming convention may have changes since 1995 when this was manufactured. Actually I think any 50kOhm potentiometer might work, though the same type (linear or audio taper), and it must handle enough power. Thanks/Paul

    My biggest concerns are power rating and physical fit. I am assuming that .25W would be enough, but will go larger if I can. From my investigations I think that the "B" in the name means it's a linear taper pot, though I don't know how much difference it would make if one used an audio taper. I am trying to find a place where I can actually see this widget, or at least see a list of its dimensions. As to bending the pins, I suppose this would work unless you break them or leave one in a "stressed" position there is might break later. So a little bend, OK, big bend, dicey.

    Hmm, that's good to know about the taper issue, I was wondering about that too. On the page I posted the link to, there is a link to the "Datasheet" which has the dimensions of the item. 1/2" square like the original, though the pins seem slightly short and the shaft is smaller in diameter. Would you say that the original is "cermet" or "conductive plastic" material?

I'm in the same predicament! I found this - it seems close, though the pins seem to be spaced closer together, but it looks like they might be bent to fit the wider PC board spacing. The rotating shaft also seems smaller - the original is larger than 1/4".
What do you think?

    OK, it worked! There are a few things to be careful of: a) the threaded shaft which the strain relief nut screws onto is larger than the original part. I therefore needed to enlarge the external hole so that it would fit. b) You need to spread the connector legs to fit the PC board hole spacing, but I was able to do so without breaking them. c) There is a metal plate that fits over the aforementioned threaded shaft - its hole must be modified to fit over the larger shaft. I think it may be for static drainage or grounding. I simply left it off - the system works fine. Good luck!

It's possible they've died, have you checked that your sound card and drivers are working by using another set of speakers or headphones.

I have used the sound test to check my CS 5.1 system. When I test the subwoofers, there is no sound. I have played CDs with deep bass, no sound is emitted from the subwoofers. I have T-500...

One step at a time. Get the subwoofer to work, THEN play music through it.

You don't describe the electronics, IF you have a sub defined, whatever other steps it probably needs to pass LFE to the sub.
