How do I convert spade terminal volume control to something else?? Answered
I removed this circuit board from an old ipod dock I was about to trash but wanted to keep the innards for something. I'm connecting this to some other speakers but don't know how to convert the volume control. Right now there are two silver, plastic caps with a screw in the bottom of them. The screw runs through a spade terminal which is soldered onto the circuit board. When you tap one of the caps it raises/lowers the volume until you stop tapping it. I want to convert this to something different, preferably a volume knob of some sort. I'm not very versed in electronics, just been messing around for a couple years making simple stuff like lamps, etc so please help a noob. Any suggestions are welcome. I'm not even sure this can be converted but thought I'd ask because I'm fresh out of ideas. Thanks a lot.
