The article focuses on do-it-yourself installation or upgrading of guitar amplifiers. Inserting a series resistor lowers the damping factor and can be combined with a treble-taming step. This will reduce power dissipated by the speaker by a little more than half an acceptable loss. The total cost of the choke and the resistor is less than $10 per channel. INSET: Biased Opinions.
