    Any idea on the specs? Frequency centers, cut/boost dB, etc? I did a quick Google, but didn't find anything...

    The module is comprised of two small circuit boards, each one containing two pots - one for the master volume + blend, the other for the stacked bass/treble + stacked midrange/sweep.

    On each board, the spacing of the control shafts is about 1 5/8 inches.
