Rotary speaker switch in master stateroom

Postby Luckyskiff » July 12th, 2013, 7:00 pm

Hi everyone, I've recently purchased a 1997 355 AC and am starting to work on the fix list. In the master stateroom and bridge there is a rotary switch that I think controls stereo speakers. Neither of these switches work. Can anyone tell me what these switches are supposed to do and where I can get replacements? The switch has 6 wires connected to it; 2 green and 4 brown.

Thanks for any help.

They are supposed to control the volume of the speakers in the area. Mine don't work either. So i installed a separate remote control pioneer stereo, cd changer, and xm radio interface on the bridge. And i have no need to control speaker volume in the stateroom, so i left it alone.
I considered removing the switches and cleaning with :captain: contract cleaner, but decided the fader was useless.
I would guess you could find new units at allied electronics.
You have the left and right channels from the radio, and the left and right channels out to the speakers.
