High-frequency sounds are made from rapidly moving sound waves that can complete a cycle in a short distance, while low frequency sounds are made from slowly moving sound waves… View this post

    What is impedance? Impedance is the AC (alternating current) version of the DC (direct current) term resistance, which is the opposition to electron current flow in a circuit and is expressed in ohms. Impedance (often abbreviated as “Z”) includes capactive reactance and inductive reactance in addition to simple DC resistance. Reactance depends upon the frequency of the signal flowing in the circuit. Capactive reactance increases as frequency decreases: inductive reactance increases as frequency increases. Because of this frequency dependence, impedance… View this post
