DIN 41612 connectors are rated at 2A per pin. Is this the absolute maximum current or RMS? I want to use a DIN connector for power level audio. Music signal peaks commonly reach 24 dB (16x) above the RMS level. If the current rating is RMS, what is a safe peak maximum?

Like all ampacity ratings, this is based on the acceptable level of conductor -- or pin/socket for a connector, heating, and is thus a RMS rating.
