Powertron FPR2-T218 30W Metal Foil Resistor

Powertron FPR2-T218 30W Metal Foil Resistor

New to Hificollective are these amazing bulk foil resistors in a TO-218 (TO-247) housing from Powertron. Rated at 3W in free air but with a maximum of 30W rating when fitted to a heatsink. These gems are ideal for use in crossover networks with a truely neutral sonic characteristic. Used throughout the industry they are available from 0.002R to 20R, we carry 0R47 to 18R to cover the popular values used in crossovers. They offer an incredibly stable resistance up to around 65 degrees so will provide a constant performance no matter how loud you play your music.

For those of you that require a higher power rating for the FPR2-T218 we now stock the Ohmite E2A-T247-38E heat sink that takes it's performance up to 5.4 watts, this is plenty for most domestic hi-fi speakers and also keeps overall size to useable dimensions.
