    Hello just a quick question.. so ive read 100ohm potentiometer for 1 driver
    And 50 ohm potentiometer for 2 drivers
    But what if Id like to put 3 drivers under the same potentiometer? Seems like it should be 33ohm.. but seems hard to find or very expensive. is there other option if I want to control intensity on 3 drivers at the same tine or should I really just put no more than 2 drivers/ potentiometer?
    Drivers will be hlg-240h-c2100 if that even matter

    Thanks

    Just makes more sense now .. FAIL
    I wish I can just delete this now :oops::oops::oops:

    So 33k ohm will work then :eyesmoke:

    Does it matter the W for the potentiometer ?

    Ive seen 2w, 3w, 5w?

    No, but the $2 ones usually fail if used much.
