I'm sorry - I did mean to specify that the intended application for this would probably be compact x-overs... or maybe just nicer looking ones.

What I'm reading so far is that metal oxide surface mount resistors are basically trash for audio signals... which really sucks.

besides the power (heat dissipation) constraints, passive loudspeaker crossovers must survive a high vibration environment with occasional drops. Even thru hole components often get extra mechanical stress relief.
