I’m looking to install linux onto my Asus C302 Chromebook and was looking at the “Supported Devices” chart on the chrultrabook github page to see what’s what. Underneath the “linux notes” section, I noticed a curious descriptor that went like this:
“max98357a doesn’t have a volume limiter so speakers could get fried.”
My question is what does it actually mean when it says “could get fried”. Like if I play music on my chrultrabook would it randomly fry out the speakers? Or is this more of a risk if I have the device set at max volume? And is there something I should do/install to mitigate this risk?
