    Default SDA 1.2tl's with Dueland Resistors

    I ordered some Dueland Resistors some time ago and they finally made it to the USA.. I ordered short tubes as they are about 5" LONG these are about 3" LONG and still a pain to fit even with a custom board.

    I think they look pretty good considering what I have to work with, I am looking forward to finishing and putting them to work..:tongue:

    Just finished putting the crossovers back in with a little SADE paving the way for a few hours..

    Thanks Trey..

    What was it you didn't like about them Mark?? For me it's just their length that makes it hard to use.. I love what I'm hearing in my CRS+'s, and hope to like them just as much in the 1.2's.. I will be able to tell this afternoon..

    I was wondering the same thing. I have all mills in my SRS 2 p/b crossovers, but after seeing you can get the deulunds a little shorter, I am very tempted to swap them out! Do they have a price list for the shorter versions?

    I had to email them what I wanted and they let me know what I was looking at. I also told them I wanted longer leads as well.

    They look like cinnamon (or walking) sticks glued to the xover. Interested to hear how they sound vs Mills...

    Duelund are far more sterile sounding than Mills but in a way that you hear more details and it stages better.

    In my experiences synergy has far more to do with resistors than quality - I have used 1.50 resistors that I liked better than Mills and Duelund.

    Quick update I am loving the detail that the Duelands give the sound stage so much better then the Mills, Funny thing is when I first was listening I was hearing so much more detail I would hear these little clicks and snaps and it took me a few to realize that I was hearing the drum sticks hitting with so much better clarity at first I thought something was wrong LOL!!

    All the little details are so much cleaner it's insane, and with them settling in after a few days it's that much better. The only down side to them is the cost they are not cheap when you need as many as I did for the 1.2tl's, and when you order them custom with a shorter tube and longer leads so they will fit the boards better that is an extra cost as well..

    Thanks to Mike (Face) for pushing me over the edge..

    Ohhhh let me add that the Piano Keys are off the hook as well with the new resistors not that they were bad before but man oh man are they clean when they hit..

    What about the Dueland (physically) makes them sound better than the Mills?

    Not sure what it is physically, to be honest I would still like to know why it has to be a long tube.

    Face might know more..

    Uhm, carbon resistor element instead of wirewound?

    I see - so carbon inherently sounds better than wire-wound - interesting.

    I wouldn't say "inherently". I'm pretty sure they do a bit more than just stuff a piece of graphite into a case with a couple of leads. But to get to real specifics of construction, well, I doubt they'd tell you, me, or anyone else exactly how they're made.

    That is fascinating, and I believe explains why they are so long. Thanks!

    Larry, did you just leave a mills resistor in the polyswitch spot? Or, just a jumper? It's a little too dark for me to tell. I wouldn't think you would need to go so far as to use a duelund resistor here, would you? Or, maybe it would be better? Thanks again.

    I am just using the .5 mills and it is mounted under the board..



    Edit in that pic I was using a jumper.

    OK, that's what I figured. That'll save me about $100.00. Thanks Larry.

    For the record I prefer the Duelands over the mills the detail and clarity are by far better IMO..

    very nice Larry. I bet they're some very sweet sounds coming out of those 1.2tl's
