replacing 20kbx2 potentiometer with fixed resistors for max output at all times? Answered

someone gave me an amp, potentiometer is busted. im not in a position to order a new one, and i really dont care to. id like to wire this up with resistors instead so that it reads full open all the time. the pot is for a car amp im just going to use my input source to control the volume anyways. schematic or detailed instructions would be lovely. thanks guys.

Just connect your input to the center wire of the pot and a 20 K ohm resistor from that to ground.

Something like this.
