PEAK CLIPPING

the ridding of high-amplitude parts of speech waves by way of electronics, resulting in some loss of quality but minimal, if any, loss of intellect. Peak clipping makes it possible to lessen high-intensity sound and enable a public address system or hearing aid to make the best use of its accessible and potential power.
