English term or phrase: miniature public
hearing aids for veterinary patients are similar to a miniature public adress system...
M. Eugenia Summa
Portuguese translation:Sistema Miniaturizada de Audio Amplificado
Explanation:
Your question is a little funny, actually, because the compound noun here is "Public Address System" (which is being miniturized).

A Public Address System is an electronic system for amplifying cound outdoors. It can be mounted on a truck or installed in a park, etc.

The point is, IT'S BIG!

What they are saying here is that a hearing aid is just a (very) miniturized public address system.
