Not replacing any wiring, this is a two story house and realigning planets would be easier than rewiring it.
Goals are to replace bad pots and keep it as is- one broke, and one was not fixed with deoxidation spray.
This is genuine 1973.
Now, for entertainment, I've attached where all the speakers come together. There are 13 speakers coming into this. This is either genius, or the work of a madman. Or both.
I do not question what is going on here. I'm just going to 'go with it'. Trying to figure this mess out would be a waste of time (currently.) It works, so, I'm going to keep it patched up and not worry about it.
I'm running the house speakers on a zone 2 of an onkyo. This is just for gentle music throughout the house- quality/volume is not really an issue. (speakers are 1973 too!)
If these old volume switches are a thing of the past, I'll just patch up what I have and redo it one day when I'm really bored. Crown's VCAP switches look pretty specific for their system, I think- I need to take out one of my volume switches and run an ohm meter on it to see what's happening.
Kind of worried about taking one out- that might throw off the load to the amp!
Thanks guys- if you have bumped into one of these switches, give me a shout!
