# Newbie Question Re Resistors in Tweeter path for Magnepan 20.7

I've tried Mills resistors in values 0.5 and 1.0 in the tweeter path for my new Magnepan 20.7s but I think something in between those values would be better.  I have looked for a Mills resistor in this same series between a value of 0.5 and 1.0 but I don't seem to finding them.  Suggestions?

But I am tired running math when the info is right there for the taking on the interweb.
