Trouble connecting marine amp to stereo

Having trouble hooking up 4 channel 400w pyle amp to pyle stereo. When I connect the high output connectors to the speaker connections on the back of my pyle stereo, I do not get power to the amp. I have 2 RCA cables labeled 'rca rear' coming from the radio. If I connect that with a cable the power indicator lights up on my amp but with the speakers connected to the amp I get no sound. What am I doing wrong?

    I know I can only have one connected at a time. If I have the high input connected though and not the rca input I get no power going to the amp. The power light only comes on red when I have the rca cable hooked up but I don't get any sound coming from my speakers. I have connected the speakers originally directly to the radio and they work that way. Do I need to use a y connector since i only have a red and white rca cable coming from the radio? I bought some connectors today but they have 4 leads instead of 1 to connect to the rca from the radio and two going out to connect to the rca input on the amp.

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.

    Hello again lizskates814,



    It is possible that the amp is looking for an input for all 4 channels, and yes, you can use "Y" cables to split 2 channels into 4.

Accidently had peaker connect to A side while in bridge mode wud mixer be damaged


Hi, When an two channel (stereo) amplifier is connected in bridge mode the polarity of one channel is reversed, for this example say channel B. An identical (mono) signal is applied to both channel inputs.
The output is now connected between the two channel +ve outputs. As channel A's output goes +ve , channel B's output goes -ve, thus doubling the output voltage.
On this Behringer powered mixer, the bridge switch simply connects the power amp section inputs, the required way.
The bridged output is wired to the B output between pins 1+ and 2+ of the 4 pole Speakon connector. (Because usually pins 1+ and 1- are used, stereo operation is unaffected.)
So.... If you connect a speaker from the A output alone then I would expect it to work, BUT if there is already a speaker connected from the bridge output, then what happens will depend on the amplifier design.
At best the A channel will see too smaller impedance, and hopefully shutdown.
This is a Behringer, it has digital (class D) power amps, and it does Not claim any amplifier protection !!!
If the powered mixer works in normal stereo, then it is probably OK.
If it then does Not work in bridge mode it is likely to be the connector wiring.
All the best.

      Plug one end of a shielded input cable into the mixer's main output, and the other end into the crossover's input. The cable connectors will be dictated by your particular mixer and crossover, and will be either standard 1/4" or 3-pin XLR connectors. Consult the owner's manual of all components for specific details and recommendations.

    • 2
      Plug another shielded input cable into the crossover "high" frequency output, and the other into the crossover's "low" frequency output.

    • 3
      Plug the cable coming from the crossover "high" output into the channel one input on the stereo power amp, and the cable from the crossover "low" output into the channel two input of the power amplifier.

    • 4
      Plug one end of the unshielded speaker cable into the power amp channel one speaker output, and the other end into the horn tweeter.

    • 5
      Plug one end of the second unshielded speaker cable into the power amp channel two speaker output, and the other end into the woofer. The connections are now complete.

My pyle plmra 220 600 watt 4 channel amp blew out, pyler said it would be 50 dollars to send it in to them so i said to heck with that and oppened her up and found a capacitor blown, but when i replaced...


outputs also blown, go to ebay and buy a better amp form the same price you would have paid for pyle to fix that one, just keep playing with that one and you will get better at repairs, thats how i learned to fix amps.

I need to know step by step how to hook up my entired system using my macki board. I have a Mackie 1604 Vlz, a power amp for mains, a power amp for subs, a crossover, a vocal effects processor, and a 16...


ok, first thing will be the effects processor. look for the "aux sends" output jacks near the bottom center of the rear panel. run a 1/4 inch instrument cable from "aux send" 3 out into the input on the vocal processor, and run another from aux 4, if the effects processor has 2 inputs. then, from the vocal processors output, run 1/4 inch cables back into the "stereo returns" on the mixer, (located on the rear panel on the bottom, extreme left) 2 outputs per input, since its making stereo effects. so, if you ran just send 3 into the processor, you should have a left and right return instrument cables into the mixer for "stereo return" 3 (left and right). if your processor has 2 imputs, and you are using both "aux send" 3 and 4, then you will have to have a pair of cables going to each "stereo return" for 3 & 4. -to apply effects to a microphone(s), you would adjust the individual aux send levels for each channel you want to have effects, and you would have to ensure that the master aux sends and returns are also turned up..

ok, the snake is simple, each xlr (3 prong mic) connector on the snake is labeled, so, just plug each xlr jack into the corresponding channel on the board, and plug the first 2 1/4 inch ends of the snake into the "C/R out balanced" outputs on the board, located on the rear panel, up and to the left a bit.

at the stage end of the snake, ues a 1/4 inch instrument cable to copnnect the first 2 1/4 inch jacks on the snake to the left and right inputs of the crossover. then, from the crossover, connect the sub power amp to the "low" stereo outputs of the crossover with instrument cables, and connect the main speakers amp to the "high" stereo outputs of the crossover with instrument cables. if its an adjustable corssover, you will want to have it crossed over somewhere about 80-120 hz to allow only the lowest frequencies to the subs.

now, from the amps to the speakers, we ane going to have to use heavier 12-14 gague SPEAKER CABLES, instead of light gague instrument cables. hook the subs up to the stereo speaker outs of the sub amp with speaker cables, and do the same for the main speakers.

Hello, What is the proper way to connect an Ashly XR1000 Crossover and a Pyle Pro PTA1400 power amp to my Peavey XR8600 so I can use 2 subs? The subs are not powered, but do have a passive crossover...


Here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/00513220_7.pdf I didn't look at the manual for the crossover but this is probably the way I would do it. Look at page 13 in the manual : Come out of the Main out (31 in the diagram) into the main in of your crossover. Go out of your crossover Hi and Mid out setting back into Power amp In 1 (labelled 32 in the diagram). Hook your speakers that you normally use to the output jacks on the back of the Peavey. Make sure you match the output impedances. Go out of your crossover low output into the Pyle power amp and out of the Pyle into your subs. Make sure the impedance ratings of all your speakers match the output impedances of your amps. You will only be running in Mono mode as that is the signal output of the Peavey mixer. You can run faux stereo by using the Main monitor Out as 1/2 the pair and the Main Out as the other 1/2 to both channels of the crossover but you won't be getting a true stereo pan mode.

I am having trouble hookin a 4 channel amp up...im used to monoblocks....so how do i hook it up


the same thing as hooking up your monoblocks, the only difference is your having 4 outputs, that means you can drive up to 4 speakers with this one.

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...


Hi,

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,

Can the Pyle PLCD-42


Yes there is a couple possible ways.
1. Get 2 RCA Y adapters and split your Preamp Output you will not have any type of fader control this way because you are using a single output.

2. Run one amp from the radio with a set of RCA Cables.
Hook up amp #2 using a Line converter connected to the output of your stereo which will convert you to RCA the just run a cable to the amp..

3. If one of the amps has a High Level Input Run a set of speaker wires from the stereo outputs to the High level Input.
I personally prefer the above 2 methods I find Low Level input sounds better.

Hope this gives you some Ideas and helps

Hooking up speakers to amp


YES ! This is usually ok, the speaker cabinet should contain a high pass filter or crossover on the tweeter to decouple it from the low frequency signals. My Linn Index speakers are wired like this.
