An Investigation into How Amplifier Clipping is Said to Burn-Out Loudspeakers, and How Limiters Can Save Them

Document Thumbnail

The use of audio limiters to prevent power amplifier clipping is quite common. This paper investigates the clipping phenomenon said to damage loudspeakers. It is shown that clipping is not what causes the damage, but, rather compression of the audio spectrum. Proper use of limiters protects any loudspeaker system by reducing compression of the musical source.
