"bundle" of resistors?

I am considering constructing a bundle of 22 or so 1/2 watt resistors to use in my speaker xover. I like the sound of Vishay CMF metal film resistors compared to other types, but power handling is limited. Twenty plus paralleled gives me 10 watts capacity. Cost is comparable to boutique wirewounds, which I don't really like. Duelund also left me unimpressed, especially for their cost and awkward size. I see this xover resistor topic discussed here, but I've never seen this suggested.

Anyone ever tried it?
