Will a Pyle PT530A 350watt receiver work with a pair of 4ohm 200wattRMS per speaker


Yes they will, but alway be careful with audio gear.
There are 30 watt speakers that can handle peaks of 500 watts for a short time. There are also 500 watt speakers I can "kill" with a peak less than 500 watt.
Most amplifier manufactures like to boost about the power an amplifier can deliver and their speakers can handle. But as long as they don't tell how long the speaker can handle the power and at what frequencies the value does not say anything.
Whit high power amplifiers, never switch over while the volume if at maximum.
You know what I mean. I can't hear my CD player. first turn the volume to the max and then press the CD button, and the speakers will explode. Always when you preaa any button on the pre amp juts lower de volume first and you won't destroy your speakers.
My old Kef Concerto's are almost 40 years of age. 30 watt and are running on a 500 watt Yamaha amplifier for years now. And believe me my chidden know how to punish a speaker. Never any problem, nr with the speakers, nor with the amplifiers.

Can i hook this amp to my home sound system


Technically, yes, but there are some challenges. First, the input voltage to the amp is 12VDC, not 120VAC. You would need to find a power supply large enough to supply 12VDC at 30-40 amps (plus has proper currently limiting or fuses to protect against overloading). Second, most home speakers are 8 ohm impedance. While the amp can power an 8 ohm speaker, the output power is cut in half (compared to a 4 ohm speaker).

I have a Boss 4x50watt in-dash stereo, 2 Pioneer 270-watt max/ 40 watt nominal rear speakers, and 2 Pioneer 500 watt peak/ 80 watt rms front speakers. Do I need to buy an amplifier? Or is does the head...


You do not need to buy an amp, the only reason to buy one is if you do not think it is loud enough when you turn up the volume to max. The speakers you have can take more power than your stereo can provide, but you only need to add an amp to get more power if you want it to play louder than it does now.

Will i be able to swap the original speakers of the J520 with a pair of Sony SS-B1000, without causing damage to the new speakers? the Sony SS-B1000 has an Impedance of 8 ohms, and peak power of 120 watts.


Hi, As long as you like the way the speakers sound there is really no reason you cant use whatever speakers you want. To find out the approximate wattage of the stereo you are using look on the rear of the unit and you will find a tag that has " SPECIFICATIONS " on it. There you will see perhaps the a.m. and f.m. frequencies it's capable of receiving also there should be numbers saying something like" 100-240vac or 100-240v~ 50-60hz 1.2amp or 120watts.( if power is listed in amps only-1 amp's equivalent to about a hundred watts)Dividing the wattage by 3 will give you an approximate power out put. Example if your stereo draws 120 watts worth of 110 from the wall it will put out approximately 40 watts to each speaker. Changing from OEM speakers is all right as long as you don't try to hook up some 150 watt peak speaker to a stereo capable of just, say, 10 watts per channel. Doing this will eventually cause damage to the amplifier, not to mention causing about 30 percent total harmonic distortion-which take my word for you will know if you ever hear it! So long story short-use what you wish, just be careful not to overload the receiver-if the speakers are a bit to powerful for receiver you can lessen distortion by turning down the " BASS" as that takes the most power in a speaker. Thanks for choosing FixYa, I hope this helped-good luck, Prodzilla

My DDX616 takes about 30 seconds before its completely booted up and ready to play music. Is this normal operation? It seems like all previous stereos I've had were pretty instant on.. I've also noticed...


Boot up time is correct, these are computer driven with a processor and such. The cut out is not. this is usually caused by over heating. if you notice the back of the unit should have a cooling fan and fins. You must have good air flow to the fins and the cooling fan must not be blocked, even a little will cause it to fail and get hot. If unit is getting cool air and nothing is blocking the fan/fins then it could be a impedance/resistance problem in the speakers. If your running unit with no amp/s then check 1st. polarity of speakers (+ to + and - to -) It really matters to have these correct! 2nd. Make sure they are all the same wattage aka 4o watts each or 60 Watts each max do not mix a 10 watt factory speaker with a 60 watt High end speaker period. A 40 Watt speaker is recommended by manufacturer due to demand on the internal amp demand. If your speakers are not the same wattage the internal tries to compensate for the problem but it cannot do so. Eventually the unit will go in to protection mode and will stop working till you fix the problem and reset the unit. If you are pushing the speakers hard at on vol 25 then you have the wrong size speakers on it. I recommend taking it to a shop spend a few bucks on it and get the correct speakers for the unit. Money may be tight but Walmart sales a good set of Sony polymer speakers that work very well with this unit I believe they are Sony Explode Series. Make sure that the wattage is no higher than 50 Watts! 40 Watts is best 30 Watts or less is HORRIBLE. 4 speakers should cost around $80.00, just make sure of the size speakers you need before you go! If your using amps or eqs or boosters of some sort there's a simple cheap fix for that.

What kind of amp do i need for 2 kicker ds6930 140 watts peak and 2 ks6930 6x9 watts peak 150 and 3 Kicker KS350 3-1/2 40 watts each peak


600 Watt to 1000 Watt 4 CHANNEL AMP for the four 6X9's and a less powerfull 4 Channel amp thats at least 200Watts to 400Watts peak for the 3 3-1/2 kicker speakers. Because if you try to connect the 3 3-1/2 speakers to only 1 4 channel amp that the 6X9 speakers are on you risk of overheating the amp and blowing the speakers too!!!

I need speakers for my Onkyo A-911M integrated amp


A+B speakers = 4 channels 2 right 2 left

100 watts/4 = 25 watts per channel

RMS watts / channel = 25 x .707 = 18 watts/channel which is your average consumer stereo system

I would use 8 or 16 ohm speakers (not 4 ohm) -- almost any set of stereo speakers will "work" -- these will be 8 ohm and about 5 watt minimum / 40 watt max thereabouts

40 watt just not bright enough?


60 watts could be fine and you may never have a problem, but it says 40 watts for a reason. So you don't burn your house down. See "To reduce the risk of fire....". The better option here would be to buy 23watt compact fluorescent light bulbs. They give off less heat than a 40 watt incandescent and the same light output of a 100watt incandescent. I'm guessing that you don't currently have the light on a dimmer, but if you wanted to, make sure you get cfl's that are made to be used on a dimmer.
