What potentiometer to use as audio control in car stereo?
I am working on installing a tablet into my car instead of the original head unit. But since the tablet will be permanently mounted inside the dash, I have no way of turning the volume up or down on the tablet, therefore I need to install a potentiometer into the audio cable that goes into my amplifier.
I have tried with a dual LIN 100kOhm potentiometer, which worked to an extend, but not as well as I had hoped.
It did turn the volume up and down, but it couldn't turn the volume all the way down as I had hoped it would be able to.
I just want it to be able to turn up quite loud, but also turn all the way down, so I don't have to pause the music everytime I want it to be quiet.
