High quality resistors are hard to find. High power resistors are used in crossover networks to adjust the levels of individual speaker units and they are also used in oscillator circuits and equalisers. Their basic job is to convert surplus or unwanted electrical power into heat. One of the most important specifications of a resistor is thus its power handling capacity, which is expressed in watts.
Mundorf M-Resist Supreme Resistors
The Mundorf M-Resist Supreme series is specifically designed for high-end loudspeaker and amplifiers applications. With their superior audio quality these 'acoustically no longer perceivable' resistors now match the premium quality standard which distinguishes Mundorf capacitors and conductors!
Metal Oxide Crossover Resistors
MOX Resistors (metal oxide layered resistors) are most suitable for use in high-end speaker crossovers. High power handling, high temperature resistance, low inductance and small tolerances. These resistors are well constructed, reliable and are suitable for many crossover designs, resulting in excellent performance. These metal oxide types are particularly suitable for higher-grade equipment or upgrades to existing crossovers.
Ceramic Crossover Resistors
For budget projects, these ceramic resistors are perfect. Certainly not as good as the MOX or Supreme resistors described above, these are the perfect cost saving solution for speaker projects or repairs.
L-Pads are used for adjusting speaker levels. Used especially for high and mid frequency drivers, they can also be used for complete speakers if the power handling is suitable.
