Abstract: This paper considers $ {C^2}$ solutions $ u = u(t,x)$ of the differential inequality $ \vert Lu\vert \leqq {k_1}(t,x)\vert u\vert + {k_2}(t,x)\vert\vert\nabla u\vert\vert$. The coefficients of the hyperbolic operator $ L$ depend on both $ t$ and $ x$. Explicit lower bounds are given for the energy of $ u$ in a region of $ x$-space expanding at least as fast as wave-fronts for $ L$. These bounds depend on the asymptotic behavior of $ {k_1},{k_2}$, and the coefficients of $ L$. They do not require boundary conditions on $ u$.
