Damping Factor for amps


Lost Legacy
 Share

Recommended Posts

Have come across this term a few times now and finally looked into.

From what i have found it is about the control of a loudspeaker, so as to have accurate sound reproduction.

(i could go into more detail of what i found but wont do that unless needed)

Is anyone on here knowledgable in the area?

I'm eager to learn. Want to know how much of a role it plays in accurate sound reproduction. I love the very very quick double kickbass of metal music, but never can get each note seperated.

Use an A/B amp and dont wire low if you want great control.

Slew is the main thing to look at.

"they" say a dampning factor of 80 is all that is needed. Although i disagree with that statement.

Is it more about not wiring it low or just using coils with higher impedance?

So instead of a single amp at 2ohm id be better with 2 amps at 4ohm or something similar?

Is more about the "off time" than it is the actull kick.

Google slew rate
