Re: vol control for monitor?
Unfortunately the rheostat rating is for the whole thing. If you have it dialed way down, watch out for the dissipation in only a part of the winding.  
WHy doesn't the amp volume control do the job?  
ANd can you find high power L-pads to handle it? Or is that what the Parts Express link was for?
