So yesterday I picked up a Dunlop Heil Talkbox, which is amazing. I was reading the little booklet it comes with, and it says that the speaker it uses has 100 Watts max power or 50 Watts RMS. I'm not sure what RMS is... Will my 75Watt Spider, cranked all the way, overload the speaker or not?

Most likely, as your spider is 75w RMS. That thing is 50w RMS.

Alright, thank you. I couldn't find where it said if my amp was RMS or not.

What does RMS mean, anyways?

I read somewhere that you must run the Heil into a seperate speaker, not into the Spider III.

I'm using the Spider III as a preamp, which goes to the heil, and from the heil I have it going to my Fender De Ville, until I can afford to buy a cabinet.

I've got another question about this... the Heil is supposed to have a light that goes on when it's being overloaded. Mine came with this red plastic thing that screws in where the light is. Is the plastic thing gonna magically light up, due to a light that's inside the talkbox, or do I need to screw a bulb in there?
