    I will find the exact part for you sometime today, but there is an expandable pot. it uses a bunch of individual pots on a long hex keyed shaft.

      Michael Percy sells the multi-channel passive attenuators. They are not cheap however.

        Now this thought was triggered (the "devil" is in the details, right?) by the fact that a pair of my mids (SS 8640) is on sale on swedish Ebay and i think that the sidefiring systems should be as alike as possible as the main systems. Hopefully, I could generate the mid/tweet-combo quite easilly,

          I'm still trying to find a source for the pot I was telling you about.

            There's one option for you, uses a 2mm sided hex shaft

            I'll keep looking for a more precision option.

              Not perfect as-is, but the TwistedPear Joshua Tree may well provide you a solid direction... they only have the power to drive 4 attenuator boards (that's 8 channels) officially, but I don't know what would be required to add one more board to the mix. Reach out to them, perhaps it is the answer.
