Box from Mouser at the front door today....


I am reviewing the parts I ordered and everything looks okay. Except that for some reason I ordered 1/8W for everything except R1, which turned out to be 1/4W. (not sure how I did that...) Will that cause any problems, or will it turn out okay? I know it forms part of the voltage divider in the design, so maybe it's ok???

Thanks!

That is only the power rating of the resistor in how much heat it can handle

Logic should show you the answer straight away

Depending on the resistor type they might not easily fit.

I guess I was mostly interested in whether they would change the overall sound of the mint. The size looks ok. They are the CCF55 series, not the RN55s.
