You can just tune a small trimpot to 18Ω, This also saves more space that combined resistors.

Failing all else, you could rig up a close equivalent from a pair of 10 ohms in series, or a pair of 39 ohms in paralell. Or other combinations, of course, depending on what you have on hand --Purduecer

I don't know what a 18 ohm resistor looks like but I might have one tell me what they look like and I will check.
