English term or phrase: emulsifier
Definition from ukhairdressers.com:
A thickening agent and/or binding agent added to products to change their physical composition (joins two or more ingredients together). For example, it can turn a lotion into a cream.

Example sentence(s):
  • Creams are made by pre-mixing all the materials forming the fat-phase, that is, the emulsifier, consistency agent (Cocoa or Shea butter) and vegetable oils. Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy
  • Any personal care product that contains both water based and oil based ingredients must also contain an emulsifier. It is the emulsifier that enables these two normally repellent ingredients to mix together to form a cream or lotion. Green People
  • The reason the fat does not float to the top immediately is due to the presence of emulsifiers; in this case, a milk protein called sodium caseinate as well as several phopholipids. Cosmetic Chemistry

Notes to answerer
Rasa Didžiulienė Ar šis terminas reiškia, kad garsiakalbis turi integruotą stiprintuvą? Daugmaž palyginimui: Passive subwoofers are called "passive" because they need to be powered by an external amplifier, in the same fashion as traditional loudspeakers. Meanwhile, powered subwoofer is a self-contained speaker/amplifier configuration in which the characteristics of the amplifier and subwoofer are optimally matched and are both encased in the same enclosure.

O čia nieko bendro neturi iš mano pateikto konteksto su stiprintuvais? Nes tas "maitinimas" nelabai aiškiai nusako pirkėjui ką tai konkrečiau reiškia.

O tai nieko bendro neturi su mano tekste pateiktais stiprintuvais? Nes tas "savaiminis maitinimas" nelabai ką klientui sako, turiu konkrečiau paaiškinti.

Rasa Didžiulienė Žiūrėkit, ar čia tikrai nieko bendro jie neturi su integruotais stiprintuvais? Man regis čia nieko bendro su maitinimu neturi: https://www.lifewire.com/passive-vs-powered-subwoofers-1847584

Mano verčiamame tekste yra tekstas apie "self-powered subwoofers", prie kurių galima jungti aukštų dažnių garsiakalbius, tai manau, kad garsiakalbiai jungiami prie integruoto stiprintuvo?

Ona Stankevičiūtė Gal galėtumėte įdėti sakinį, kuriame būtų šis visas terminas "self-powered subwoofers", nes dabartiniame pavyzdyje buvo tik "powered subwoofer"?

Rasa Didžiulienė Sakinys toks: X is a dual self-powered subwoofer capable of powering high frequency enclosures.

Rita Vaicekonyte Tai tame sakinyje ir tinka tiek mano, tiek Onos pasiūlyti variantai, t.y. savaiminį/autonominį maitinimą turintis žemų dažnių generatorius.

Rasa Didžiulienė Radau informaciją: powered speakers, also known as self-powered speakers and active speakers, are loudspeakers that have built-in amplifiers. Šalia pateikta garsiakalbio schema su kolonėlės viduje integruotu stiprintuvu (amplifier), o ne papildomu išorėje. Taigi buvau teisi. Beje, mano produkto aprašyme nurodyta, kad elektros šaltini yra AC adapter, vadinasi jis jungiasi į elektros srovę. Čia nekalbama apie kažkokį nano modernų dalykėlį, kuris savaime veiktų. Kalbama tik apie integruotą stiprintuvą.
