Not too sure of the specifics myself. The articles I linked to expound
in great detail - and can likely be better understood by minds greater
than mine :-)

What I understood is that the fixed filter is pretty much set to DC,
and multiplying by the carrier frequency makes the carrier frequency
from the audio input fall on 0Hz after mixing, therefore within the
pass band of the filter.

There's no multiplying after that - the low-pass filter already
recovered the amplitude modulator.
