    It means you can run 15W of audio into it continuously (when part of a
    circuit, obviously). That 15W should be RMS, I expect

    Some of the audio will get absorbed by the device, the rest will go to
    the speaker.

    Cheers

    It means the rheostat can dissapate 15 watts. You can get into an
    argument about whether this is RMS volts across a pure resistance, or
    average power, or 'music power' or 'peak power' or several other
    confusing ways of making an amplifier have more power.

    Thanks...

    Another unrelated question to this one, so in the same spec, Insulation
    Resistance means the resistance of the insulation?

    It does indeed.
