This is correct, and what I believed I had learned long ago was wrong...Thanks for setting me straight!
But I guess I proved those Dale RH-50 are tough!?

Afair, an RH-50 handles 250W short term.

Doesn't imply that i disagree with EUVL, Patrick is really knowledgeable.

Everything else is dissipated inside the chassis ...
And what about the power dissipated on the speaker coil?

I have managed to push 150W on a 25W resistor for a long-term period keeping it at 50-60º. I am using one of these heatsinks placed next to a 14cm industrial high CFM (and noise!) fan.
