    In reference to power amplifiers, the damping specification is the ability of the amplifier to control speaker motion once signal has stopped. The effects of damping are most apparent at low frequencies - an amplifier with a high damping factor will make a speaker sound "tighter" in the low end, while low damping factors result in indistinct bass.
