b. Explain the reasoning behind how THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) works, its
properties, and ways to reduce it.
c. Ditto
d. The possible audience for this work would be people like myself. People who want to
build amplifiers or speakers or anything involving an audio signal.
e. The information is relevant in ways that some is far out of my knowledge before going
into this project. But as the research kept coming, I knew more and more and understood
what the numbers and equations meant. Its a very viable source for a project like this.
f.

Special features include the numerous equations and the explanations.

g. None.

b. To give readers the correct information on the right wattage for loudspeakers.
c. Ditto

d. The audience for this work is people like myself, building an amplifier from scratch. Its
also just for the average Joe needing information to how much wattage his speakers need
and which amplifier to buy.
e. The information is relevant as it gives insight on, in my situation how much power I
should be able to put out in the headphone amplifier for adequate volume.
f.

There are no special features.

g. None.

b. To give readers a better explanation of Class D amplifiers and how they work.
c. Ditto
d. The audience for this work can vary in this field. It can be people like myself,
building an amplifier, but it also can sway a reader which class of amplification is
best for their needs in their Home Theater.
e. The information given is very useful and gives many visual examples to aid
people like myself who learn visually instead of reading only text.
f. Special features include many visual examples to aid the reader.
g. None.

b. Giving insight on the common buzzwords by audio companies that makes their
products seem better than they are. They also give the real definition on the
buzzwords like RMS power and the difference between RMS power and peak
power.
c. Ditto
d. The audience for this work is mostly for people in need of definitions along with
the comparisons between RMS power and Peak Power. It also helps people like
myself with how much power to put out regarding the speakers/headphones I
have.
e. The information is relevant in which it gives reason behind the marketing
gimmicks as well as helping newcomers in the world of audio what all of this
means.
f. No special features.

b. Give insight on the Total Harmonic Distortion and the effects it can have on
electrical power systems.

c. Ditto
d. Mostly to audio guys, but can also help A/V people and ones who design the
audio paths for motherboards.
e. The information is very helpful for people like myself who design the power
supply as well as the amplifier itself, needing to know the effects of total
harmonic distortion.
