On teh back there's a mode switch, you can put this one on stereo. Then you have a normal stereo amp.

    You can take line-out or rec. out of your receiver and connect them to the amplifier. You can connect the left chan. to input 1 and the right channel to input 2 of the Inter-M. Then you can connect your speakers to the binding post outputs. So output 1 will be your left. chan. and output 2 your left channel.

    Please watch the inputs on the Inter-M, those are XLR connector's.

    If you are using them, then you have to have to solder the inner cable to point 2 and the shield on point 1. Then you have to make a link from point 1 to 3. That's the right way to connect a unbalanced pre-amplifier to a balanced amplifier.

    Maybe you can also use the jack inputs (if there are some on the amp).

    I hope my story is clear, if not, please let me know.

PYLE PT2001X 3300 Watt Professional DJ Power.just had question about running this amp in bridged mode 4 ohms, here's some amp info 3300 watts total power bridged in 1 ch only.1650 each ch in stereo mode...


In bridge mode the minimum load will be 8 Ohm.
If you are using 4 Ohm speakers, it will mean you will give each side of the amplifier a 2 Ohm load.
Thats to much for this model.

Kind regards,

Stereo wont stay on and only couple speakers work

on the back of the stereo you should have an rca inputs in the back, it should say either rear, subwoofer, or non-fade. all of these are acceptable, run rca's to the amp from the deck.
also on the deck in the wire harness is a blue wire with a white stripe.
hook a wire up to this and run it to the REM. terminal of your amp. this wire tells the amp to turn on when you turn on your key.
these are the only two wires you hook up the back of the stereo.
hope this helps

Legend Amp hook up manual.

Pretty Straight Forward get a 8 or 4 gauge amp wiring kit.

Run your hot wire to the +12V from the battery make sure to install the supplied inline fuse near the battery don't connect to the battery until installation is complete.

Run the REM to your stereo power ant. Wire. if available.

Run the GND to Metal Chassis Ground keep it as short as possible.

Run the RCA Cable from the back of the Stereo to the RCA Inputs or Low Level on the amp.

This amp is 2 Ohm Stereo Stable which means you can connect 2 (4 ohm) speakers in parallel to each channel or 1 (4 ohm) speaker on each channel or you can connect 1 (4 ohm) Speaker in bridged mode.

There are other speaker configurations you could use but you cannot drop the load below 2 Ohm in stereo mode and no lower than 4 ohm in bridged mode.

Hope this helps
