Question about Pyle PTA1000 Car Audio Amplifier
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.
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.
