The Lefson resistor review has just gone live at Positive Feedback!

You can read the review here.

As always, thanks for stopping by, and may the tone be with you!

  1. Question for you Jeff. I need expert resistor advice.

    I just purchased a pair of Wilson Duette speakers. The Duettes come with an external crossover (that’s sealed) but the tweeter resistor is user replaceable. Wilson supplies the speakers with both 4.2 and 5.3 ohm resistors from an unknown manufacturer. When I called Wilson they wouldn’t tell me who manufactured them but said that even though it’s a 12YO old resistor Wilson feels it’s still state-of-the-art.

    Being the tinkerer that I am, I ordered some Duelunds that I have been playing around with. Can’t tell much about them yet as I just put them in today. Is there anything else you could recommend I try? I would have loved to test the Audio Note silvers but the resistor needs to be rated for 10W and the Audio Notes don’t go above 2W. Is it worth trying the Lefson? I think the Mundorf and Mills are probably lower quality than what Wilson uses. The probably is that most of the higher end ones aren’t rated for 10W.

    Thanks!

    • Hi Ian,

      There’s a couple different resistors you could experiment with in addition to the Duelund resistors, that have varying tonal qualities that would allow you to experiment with various voicing.

      The first would be the classic Ohmite Brown Devil wirewound resistors, another would be the Path Audio resistors, and of course the Lefson Ultra resistor would be an excellent choice. That would give you a range of different voicing options to experiment with.

      Let me know how it works out!

      All the best,

      Jeff
