yes. what are the losses?

if the input stage op amp blows from over-voltage on the input, would
the power amp chip still be protected?

that much i figured out.

6,000, not 60,000

def a DC motor, but not seeing a rectified sine on the scope. Seeing two
super-imposed sines on the scope, which seems impossible. But if the
motor is outputting ten's of volts, then maybe i'm overdriving the
scope, and it's readings are inaccurate.
