I have a simple question.
I'm making an audio amplifier using the circuit given in the LM386 datasheet. According to the sheet, my IC can supply max 1W of output power and recommend load is 4 ohm.
The problem is I have a 4 ohm 10W speaker.
Does the 10W rating of speaker mean that it can take maximum 10W (meaning it will work fine with lower power as well) or that it will try to extract full 10W from the IC and in doing so damage it?
