Since my resent tweeter projects went through so successfully and since I would like to stay with ability to adjust the tweeters output:
I wonder who makes good L-pads. Currently I use regular Philmore L-Pads for $5each. They are low plain-vanilla, low power wirewound attenuators that maintain a fixed impedance. I have no problems with them sonically. Still, I would like to have stepped attenuators made from approved by me fixed resistors but I do not know pope who makes the L-Pads stepped attenuators. Do you know of any?
An alternative version would be to order a custom L-Pads rotary switch form Shallco or Alma for instance and put in there own resistors. However, when I looks at the microscopic values of individual precision resistors and to the opportunity of burning fingerers and soldering all of it I really would like to pay off money to somebody and do not be invalid into this project.
I remember there was Taiwanese guy who made custom attenuators with RN60 resistors and Alps switches. They were small, accurate, very nicely soldered and very reasonably priced. I do not remember he made L-pads but perhaps for premiums pay he, or someone else would do it….. Perhaps to use 4 attenuators would be a solution to maintain impedance but I still hope to find a company of an individual who can do exactly what I looking for – 8Ohm stepped attenuator for >24 positions…. Any leads?The Cat
