wirewounds are no big fuss - most of them are anyway made as low/non inductive

for second part of your question - dunno - never using BOMs , always looking at schmtc

From what i know, the main reason for mulitple resistors is simple. Parallel values give a lower total R(less voltage drop) and greater dissipation. If you are using 10W reistors, you do not need to parallerl as many simply because of power rating. Just figure max current you think they will see, mulitply times R value, take resulting V drop and multiply times Max I and you get power dissipation needed. Make sure you have triple that amount in capability to be super safe, less if you are sure.

well inductive wirewounds give you a free inductor in your power supply- in this case a good thing, no? After all, people are sticking inductors in their Pi supplies all the time instead of the resistors..

burlesque(bər-lĕsk')
A variety show characterized by broad ribald comedy, dancing, and striptease.


yes, and if 'good ol' cement', you can strip them too, with a hammer
I once thought they sounded better that way
maybe they do, maybe they don't
now I don't care, it either works, or it don't
