I see there are no solder pads for the add-in leads. Should i just run wire in a loop and twist or what?

Any thoughts on using these CADDOCK resistors in place of the hard to find NOBLE resistors (R43-R48)? The wattage handling specifics are way overkill but without a heat sink may be worth a try.

On Rinnav's note, what about a wirewound? Why is the NOBLE resistor recommended?

Probably just because that's what the PCB was designed for. A typical axial 5W ceramic wirewound will work, but will have to be stood on end.

I noticed the diodes being stood on end as well... I can only imagine this is for heat dissipation. Is it completely necessary? I imagine the diodes get hotter on one end but the resistors?

Any ideas on the previous post for the leads?

My 5w ceramics weren't stood on their ends.

Just use whatever 5w ones you can get. 5w ceramics are ok. I found the main thing to change the Sonics in this amp was to try different types/brands of input cap.
