Yes temp will be an issue. these are for the parasitic things in the 
tops of 3-500Z's in a SB-220 amp.

The datasheet says they start to derate at 25°C and derate to zero at 155°C. Caddock and others produce similar power resistors.  Kanthal/Globar produces suitable single units but, I've not heard of a source for small quantities.  However, a coupla 100Ω/2W carbon composition resistors can be used in parallel. Ebay seller 'bigsmythe74' has new old stock Allen-Bradley but, he wants $4/each. Sorting by price, I see he has 91Ω/2W available for $1.25 each (http://www.ebay.com/itm/400003772794). Add $3.50/order shipping to USA.
