I have just tried The Mundorf Supreme in my 4P1L preamp in fillament

they play just like Zuhl write,,not pleasent to listen to,,but with a super clear treble

if you want a resistor there are more polite to ears you can try Ohmite audio gold

i use them now ,,overall pleasant to listen to

and if someone not can hear different on resistor in speaker,,something in the link must be bad... best resistor i have tried in a speaker is Duelund

I would definitely be checking for mis-wiring and also that the resistors replaced have the same value as the ones removed. A few hundred millioms difference on a tweeter pad could well make an audible difference.

Interesting. I love the Supremes. Way better than white coffins or oxide. The carbon Duelund have not worked for me nearly as well.

At the same time, synergy is perhaps even more important than the quality of individual parts. Very willing to believe that upgrading parts in a crossover with a particular sound signature might not necessarily improve it.

Break in of parts, leads and solder joints should also not be underestimated.

That only counts if she was in the kitchen at the time.

+1

Actually I use Mundorf Supreme, another very good & not expensive resistor for xover Mills 12W the old black body.
