    Click here to view/download a printable pdf of this article. I’ve done enough theorizing and musing about power and power ratings in part 1 and part 2 of this series. Let’s convert some utility power into audio power. First, some details about the testing. The Source, The Load “Source” and “load” are usually associated with amplifier and loudspeaker. I had to zoom out another level and consider the AC source to the amplifier (these amplifiers need a lot of juice).… View this post
