“When you’re happy, you enjoy the music, but when you’re sad, you understand the lyrics.” – Frank Ocean
This quote is said to be one of the favorites of all the music lovers out there.
My belief is music helps us to relax our mind as well as enjoy our lives according to the different scenarios. However, a common misconception which goes about music lovers is that they only enjoy the music and are not at all keen on knowing the intricate details of the music instruments or speakers.
When it comes to researching the musical instruments or speakers, one of the most important things is the wattage. Often it is observed that there are two values for power handling rating –
RMS(Root Mean Square) – This power handling value means how much continuous power the music instruments/speakers can handle or how much continuous power the speaker can tolerate.
Peak Power – This power handling value refers to the maximal power level which the music instruments/speakers are capable of utilizing in short bursts, or the maximum voltage the speaker or musical instruments can put out without fail.
To understand this concept in a more practical manner, let us know this with an example.
For instance, a speaker with a 15W RMS rating but a peak power rating of 30W means that the speaker can easily be used with 15 watts of continuous power, with momentary bursts of up to 30W.
Well, well, a mere example of a speaker with its RMS and Peak Power value is not enough.
Let’s have a quick look at a more meaningful example.
I am sure all of you music lovers out there, must have heard about one of the best Logitech Z623 Speaker System. These 2.1 speakers are THX certified and come with a Subwoofer. With 400W Peak Power and 200W RMS, these 2.1 speakers give you the amped audio. It delivers the crisp sound and thundering bass, which implies that whether you are watching a movie or listening to music, you can always enjoy the powerful sound which you hear and feel.
