  • For a mixing console, you’d probably want audio taper. I believe these are linear taper?

  • As someone who worked as a radio technician, I agree with DeanMurray’s approach. When you had a $2,000 mobile radio (in 1980’s money) you didn’t want it blown up by somebody not being able to tell the difference between the red and black wires. So all radios had a big diode reverse biased near the connector. If the power was reversed, the diode would short and blow the fuse. I guess it was job security, but I sure replaced a lot of those diodes.

No public wish lists :(
