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 to daisy-chain my Pyle amplifier with my KLH amplifier

as u do not state models here goes:
one or both amplifiers could have a stereo rca output, connect the output of the amplifier that gets signal from the head unit to the input of the other amplifier.
DO NOT share ground cables or power from one to the other (these cables should both run separate from a distribution block AND not from one amp to the other, not connect both amplifiers to only one driver.........
hope this helps, let me know if you need more assistance.

I need to know how to hook up my pyle pla4278 4 ch 2000watt bridgeable mosfet amplifier

Hi, I assume you are powering regular speakers in the car, right?
The amp needs a power cable from the fuse box or battery.
This cable should be about 6 gage and should have a fuse of about 150 amps.
You will need a ground cable, also 6 gage and connect it tightly to the chassis under the dash.
Disconnect all speaker wires from the head unit, and use a pair of RCA cables to connect the head unit preamp outputs to the amplifier.
Also from the head unit, connect the blue wire to the "turn on" terminal of the amplifier.
Finally, connect your speaker wires to the amplifier.
Your speakers should be rated for at least 500 Watts, or you will blow them with this amp.

Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Amplifier trip while cruising

is it hot when it shuts off? from what you just described sounds like amp could have the "ohms" too low on a channel. Check you speakers with a meter. They should be no lower than 4 ohms.

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.

you mean a series connection, I'm assuming that you are connecting two speakers to one channnel (the right or left ) of the stereo. you take the positive and the negative leads and you put one on one speaker and the ohter on ther other speaker, positive (+) to positive (+) and negative (-) to negative(-). then you simply connect the 2 leftover connection of the speakers together with a wire. Be carefull though becaus if you do it wrong, it could short out your stereo or it will sound really bad...
