I have a track of audio (speech) that has some instances of clipping. For example, the software program Audacity can be configured to mark clipped regions in red:
I understand that clipped audio is distrorted -- it is "chopped off" with loss of information, hence the term clipping -- and will not sound "good."
But, in general, will playing back this audio damage a typical device speaker, such as a built-in laptop speaker or a built-in tablet speaker?
The audio at the positions marked in red sound fine (or at least acceptable) to my ears, so as far as audio quality is concerned, I'm not going to worry about the clipping. But, in general, do I need to worry that I could damage speakers if I play back this audio on my laptop or tablet?
