Default Load resistors

Is there a source out there for high power load resistors, non-inductive for checking out power amps? (1000 Watts)+

You'll probably need to parallel some of the big Dale resistors or get creative and build your own out of light bulbs or dryer heater elements or...

Default Try Digi-Key

Digi-Key has Ohmite TAP600 and TAP1000 series resistors rated at 600 W and 1 KW respectively @ 70 degrees C heat sink temp.

They're not cheap, at $103 and $115 each (plus heat sink, of course!). But they are claimed to have low inductance and capacitance.

See www.digikey.com for specs and purchase info. See www.ohmite.com for detailed spec sheet.

Thanks Chucko for the source.

Looks good except the price.
