The wirewound resistor (4 sections - 205, 95, 2400, 1200 ohms) part number 6071. The question is: For this application, are 10 watt wirewound resistors sufficient to replace this?

It is not a simple answer because each resistor actually dissipated a different amount of power. It was one big resistor because it was all in the same assembly, but if you replace it you are probably putting in 4 separate resistors and they do not all need to be the same rating.

So, let me ask a question. Is the radio now running with the original resistor in place? If so make voltage readings across the terminals for each specific resistor and determine exactly what is required for each one.

The equation for power = (V x V)/R then you multiply by 2 for a safety margin.

So for example if there was 10 volts across the 95 Ohm resistor this becomes...

(10 x 10)/95 = 1 Watt, then double this to 2W and that's what you buy.
