I have an older pair of speakers--with the book--which was written before the RMS spec was common place. They are, therefore, simply 50 Watt speakers. In today's terms, is that most likely the RMS equivalent, or the max watts input?

Thanks.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Far more speakers are blown by too little power than too much power. However, 50 watts, with is probably the "continuous" power rating of the speakers, is fairly low. Don't expect them to be able to play very loud for long periods of time.
