8 Ohm 200W Non-Inductive Dummy Load Resistor
Are these rated at 200W PEAK or RMS?
Can I install this in parallel with a 200 watt 8 ohm speaker to prevent damage from a 440 watt 8ohm amp ?
I have some vintage Utah 12" woofers I plan on building into a speaker. Speakers and crossover are 8 ohm, was planning on wiring the speakers in parallel with a resister in series with each speaker. Are these dummy load resisters a good choice for this?

can 3 of these 8 Ohm 200W Non-Inductive Dummy Load Resistor be wired with one 500 RMS 8 ohm woofer in parallel for a 2 ohm load to use with a 2 ohm car amp?
There is no reason to use dummy loads to drop impedance loads on amplifiers. It will technically drop the load, but any added power you will get as a result will simply be dissipated as heat through the resistor.

This may be elementary, but do I just connect 1 end to the hot and 1 to the ground on a 1/4 input jack for the quiet recording?
What exactly are you trying to use this for?

To be specific, I have a 100 watt solid state head and want to use the resistor as a dummy load with a di box for quiet recording, is this possible?
That is indeed one of the applications this part is used for.
