Default Small value resistor question

There is a 0.68R resistor in my Kef's high-pass crossover. It was deployed after a 10uf cap + 15R resistor. What is the use of such a small value resistor? I am trying to replace these existing 5% resistors with 1% and I can't find a 1% .68R. Thanks in advance for the help.

You are sure it is not an inductor?

A schematic would help.

Thanks for the quick response. It is not an inductor and is a typical 5%power resistor. I do not have a schematic, I just follow the trace on the xover board. It is my understanding that Kef tend to employ complex xover.

Parallel a 2 ohms resistor with a 1 ohm resistor, you'll get 0,67R.
