I found that the higher I went with resistors the deader the sound on my 3.7i. All the top end was missing once I got past 1 ohm.
Everybody's ears, room and system is different but I'm in the no resistor camp.I tried them and they cut off too much of the highs for me but I also have high frequency hearing loss due to one stupid day being trapped next to a Sears air compressor.
Tried just the 0.75 ohm 5 watt Duelund an they seem fine. Seem not enough capacity just 5 watts.(theoretically) But the Duelund are not even getting a little warm. I am erring on the side of caution though and ordered 6 more. So I can make a 20 watt 0.75 ohm resistor. four in a 2 in series/those pairs in parallel making a 20 watt 0.75 ohm resistor set. Then it will have enough current capability!!!I have listened to the 0.75 ohm and like it petty much. With those inside, I can adjust LOWER (only... with adding resistance in parallel) than 0.75 with other bits (using the external midrange ports to find the perfect resistance level.Easy to keep at 0.75, or lower it to 0.65 0.6 0.5 0.4.. anything.. with added single 10 watt Duelund on outside port.Nice too I can just put in the OEM shunt and zero out the resistance to compare, anytime.
All of those additional soldered connections don't alter the sound?
