Most of the transistors in this speaker protector function as switches. Normally, Q4, Q5, and K1 are on and the speakers are connected to the amplifier. However, if a large dc voltage appears at an amplifier output, either Q3, or Q1 and Q2 turn on; biasing Q4 off. That action turns Q5 off, de-ener-gizes the relay, and disconnects the speakers from the amplifier. Components D1, D2, and Q6 form the overdrive-protection circuit.
