    Ok Im not sure if this is the right place for this but I have an amp that blew 2 resistors and I cant find these type anywhere. The specs of it are:

    0.18 R18 Brown, gray, silver, gold 0.171Ω - 0.189Ω

    Here is a pic(sorry cam kinda sux lol)

    The colors are burned so the pic dont show them right, they have been darkened due to heat. Thanks in advance!

    Well I looked the board over and didnt see anything else blown or burned. But it smelled BAD of burning electronics. I'm not even sure it can be repaired but I can give it try with new resistors. I think they mixed up the power and ground:rolleyes:

    EDIT: I put the color rings in and still came up with 0.18 Ohms

    That equal sign is only for the two values you've typed into the R1 and R2 boxes, nothing to do with the color tree on the right side of the page. The color code you wrote (brown, gray, silver, gold) does equate to a .18 Ohm resistor.
     
    Namslas90 and Taz100420 say thanks.
