    Default Good article on amplifier basics

    I found a decent article on the basics of amplifier operation, I'd say an intermediate level explanation...just thought I'd share...

    For those of you like me, who need a more basic explanation before jumping too far into the above link, here is a very simple and graphical explanation of amplification basics:

    www.howstuffworks.com is a great site on learning new things. Its how I started to learn about car engines, and other cool stuff. Check it out.

    That site is where I found this link...I also dig the HSW site, it's cool, how I learned how speakers work...

    I actually didn't like the article on HSW as much and went search and foudn the other...but yeah it assumes a basic knowledge of amps...
