Question about Pyle PTA1000 Car Audio Amplifier

Open Question

Pyle amplifier won't play in stereo.

I just bought a Pyle PTA 1000 amplifier. I tried it out with my iPod by connecting it to some small speakers I use with a CD changer (each speaker impedes 6 ohms). These are not the speakers I'll be using the amp with most of the time - those are large box speakers at school right now, so I can't look to see how much they impede. The speakers used in the test and the soon-to-be-used speakers have bare wire connections, so I attached them to the binding posts. The iPod was connected to the amp via a stereo TRS audio cord I got at Radio Shack.The ''ground lift switch'' was set to ''ground'' and the ''mode switch'' was set to ''stereo'' (instead of ''bridge''). When I turned the amp on and started the iPod, music played from only one speaker. When I switched the mode to ''bridge,'' the music played from both speakers, but played in mono. I noticed the two different inputs were labeled channel 1 and channel 2 and that one pair of binding posts is channel A and the other is channel B. Is this ''channel A'' and ''channel B'' nomenclature the same as ''left'' and ''right''? I'd like to play from both speakers, in stereo.I'm feeling I'm doing something wrong here. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I should point out that the amp is a Pyle Pro PTA 1000, but doesn't seem to be a car amplifier - it runs on 110 V wall power.

Hello lizskates814,

You can use either the high level (speaker) or the low-level (RCA's) inputs to the amp, but not both. Choose whichever one sounds the best or is more convenient to install and leave the other disconnected.

Hope this helps.

How come chanel a does not work on the pyle pro pta 1000 is it the way i hooked it up


Without seeing what you have... It comes down to this. Bad amp. Bad input. Switch your RCA cable, if the side is still out.. Unhook speaker, test it with a meter, small batt. Like a 9 volt. If if pops speaker is OK. No pop you have bad speaker, disconnected or bad wire.

PYLE PTA 3000 cut off and will not come on


Will it no longer come on anymore, or does it take multiple tries before it comes on? If it has stopped coming on all together, you may have blown a component on the unit.

Trying to hook up speakers to Pyle Pro PD1000 stereo receiver w/built-in DVD/CD player. I believe that I have speaker wires hooked up correctly but when I play CD no sound. I can actually hearing sounds...


Hi,
I went thru user manual..there is no special way of wiring speakers..
pls check carefully the speaker connections again and the "speaker selector" too..
what about "MUTE" button ? it should be "OFF" ...
and try to test it on FM radio first ..
just in case ,if you need the soft USER MANUAL pls visit the URL below..

Connecting a car stereo to an amplifier


you have to connect your 4 speakers to 4 speakers output direct to your car stereo no need of amplifier to 4 speaker but speakers should be small not like a woofer, and you have to connect your sub woofer by using amplifier don't connect direct. connect the output of your car stereo (using 2 RCA) to the 2 RCA inputs of amplifier. If u connect your 4 speakers to your amplifier then your car stereo does not support Left Right channel.
You can also connect your laptop or iPod direct to your amplifier.
Good Luck
enjoy music

Connecting an iPod to Yamaha YSP-1000


The best way to get quality sound would be to go through the USB connection of the phone.

It will be hard and a bit costly to get a cable to link the Ipod and projector.

Easiet and economical way is to go to apple and purchase a cable for the jaudio jack at the top of the Ipod that will also have an audio jack connector for the projector

Right channel won't play on stereo amplifier


In old stereos the first things I look at are output transistors, solder joints and electrolytic capacitors. If you know how to solder, bad solder joints are pretty obvious. If you need a tutorial on how to spot bad solder joints, look here.

As for bad caps, look here. The info is aimed at computer motherboards but still helpful.

Panasonic stereo help


It sounds to me like there is a dirty connection or a failing component in your stereo. Being intermittent like you've described, is hard problem to figure out. It could be just the connection you are getting at the speaker terminal. But, If you aren't shy about opening up your stereo to see the guts, try getting some denaturated alcohol and clean the connectors inside. Then if you are familiar with soldering you could check the connections in the driver circuts and see if you can re-flow some of the connections. I had that problem with my receiver. The video output was be flaky so I flowed some new solder on some terminals and it works perfectly.
I hope things work out.
