Causes of speaker damage

Causes of speaker damage
The cause of this speaker damage is relative, not only because of too many watts of "power amplifier" supplied to the speakers.
But, according to James Bullough Lansing (JBL), a small power amplifier is actually more dangerous.
The speakers can become damaged by a small power amplifier forced, by turning the volume at almost full until the sound becomes defective or hoarse.
The defect caused by a small power amplifier is a defective sine wave (it will appear when viewed through an oscilloscope) and this will result in heat on the speaker's spool inside.
In addition to hoarse, spool movements become irregular, so the coils become hot and will cause burns and damage.
So, the most practical solution for the speaker is not quickly broken is we do not need to impose the ability of the amplifier that we have.

Listen to the sound it produces, and use enough power between the amplifier and the speakers, usually marked without a hoarse or defective sound.
If the amplifier we have is really small, we do not have to force it by turning the volume up to the full position in the hope that we get a louder sound.

Logically is like this..
For example, we have an amplifier with a power of approx. 10W RMS.
And it feels more than enough to make noise with volume at 9 o'clock position..
But, the sound starts sounding defective when the volume is rotated in the 12 o'clock direction.
And then we move the audio device in a larger room.
In order to sound louder, we turn the volume up to the 3 o'clock direction, because in this position the sound produced by the device is enough to make a noisy scene of the place.
In fact, the amplifier has exceeded the limit of the defect (at 12 o'clock position).
Well, that's what Mr James Bullough Lansing means.
