As for lands yes not intended for us. And they are a transformer as i said . The purpose of it is to keep the same load on the amp and allow for controlling the volume they are rated as well about 80 watts for a good one . And you can smoke them too . Lol I have. As I amusing the resister network you people were so kind to design , I have an issue.
I have an amp solid state rated at about 100 watts at 8 ohms . And using the HE6 headphones .
So I have a 8 ohm and 2 ohm in series with tap in the middle of them. As shown in this thread . Well the attenuation was fine but the 8 got hot , too hot. They are 10 wire wound in ceramic . So after this I just left the two resisters connected to the speaker terminal and connected the headphones directly to the speakers terminals so they all are in parallel .
The sound level seems to be the same and all is well . So does someone here know what I did that was wrong ?
All resistors have inductance.
You can't get rid of it.
Even a piece of wire has inductance.
I assume you meant Low Inductance?
But In practice, if it's small enough, you can ignore it, especially at audio frequencies.
BTW, I've seen very hot ceramic resistors in the field. As a few posters have pointed out, some types do run extremely hot at full power, so may seem pretty damn hot at say 25% of their power rating.
