47K Stereo Volume Knob $3
The box the kits come in.
Optional: 2 LEDS
Optional: 2 resistors (2k Ohm)
Optional: Molex KK Connectors
Step 2: Kits
Follow the instructions to build the two kits. But instead of soldering the terminals on, just solder on wires.
Step 3: Its Dremeling Time.
You want to drill some holes in the box.
First drill your holes for the stand offs so you can mount the two boards. I just used two for each.
And drill a hole for your volume knob.
Step 4: More Holes...
Now its time for the rear hookups to be drilled.
Make your two 1/4" holes for the RCA connectors, two holes for power. 1 for the on/off
Now the radioshack stereo speaker hookup thing fits nicely, just line it up and mark with a marker.
I used molex KK connectors and 22awg solid wire to make everything modular, but you could solder everything together and save a buck
