Question about Pyle PT-2000 Amplifier

How are you connecting both speakers to the one speaker output - parallel or series? If parallel, the load is only 2 ohms. Big surprise there if it craps on you, huh?

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,

Gerard

What load is the amplifier designed to drive? It will only deliver maximum power into the optimum load. The loudspeakers are probably 4 Ohms, but the amplifier may well be able to drive 2 Ohms per channel. This means that you need to fit two more loudspeakers This is probably not possible. Alternatively, if the amplifier can be bridged AND can safely drive 2 Ohms bridged or 1 Ohm per channel, you should connect the two loudspeakers together (+ to + and - to -) and connect them to the amplifier output terminals indicated for bridge (often Left + and Right + but sometimes Left + and Right -). If the amplifier can't drive 2 Ohms bridged, do not connect the loudspeakers together, buy another amplifier and connect one loudspeaker to each, with both amps in bridge mode.

Remember that loudspeaker and amplifier power ratings are always massively inflated in the manufacturers' data, often by a factor of 4 and sometimes by 10 or more. You speakers may not be able to cope with a whole amplifier each, so proceed with caution.

You can't bridge that amp onto a load lower than 4 ohms. So you can't bridge that amp onto two 4 ohm subs. To get the most power out of your subs is easy. Run one channel to one sub and the other channel to the other sub. 165 watts RMS is plenty for most subs.

Pace posted on Saturday, March 05, 2005 - 01:08 GMT Your subs are dual 4 ohm voice coils so if you want to bridge your 2 channel amplifier to your two subs then wire them parallel, meaning the + to + and - to - ( Do this to both subwoofers), Then run a wire from one positive and one negative on each sub and bring the two positives together and the two negatives together and hook both positives to the far positive connection on your amp and connect both negatives to the other negative on your amp,

This will create a 4 ohm load on your amp.

Although if it's a two channel and you have two subs it's usually pointless to bridge them because if you use one channel per subwoofer its going to be the same as if both subs were bridged. example) 800 watts x 1 bridged power of your amplifie (4 ohms) is the same power as 400 watts x 2 at 2 ohms.

you shouldnt run it at 8 ohm it shows what ohms it can handle . to run it at 1 ohm you would need 2 subs to do this. and no i wouldnt run an 8 ohm sub on the amp.

The KAC-624 is a 40 watt x2 @ 4 ohm RMS amp. 55 watt x2 @ 2ohm. 110 watt x 1 Bridged I assume at 4 ohm. Manual does not specify. It can run 2 ohm in stereo mode but is unclear on mono impedance requirement. It can run 4 ohm mono at 110 watt but at 2 ohm?

2 4 ohm speakers wired in series is 8 ohms and then is dropped back down to 4 ohms when you bridge it.

2 4 ohm speakers wired in parallel is 2 ohms then dropped down to 1 ohm when bridged

(most amplifiers will not handle loads below 2 ohms)

hope this info helps

well first of all you cant bridge subs... you can bridge an amp... and for 2 they are probablly not 1000 watts, make sure you understand RMS and what the sub can ACTUALLY HANDLE properly... i would get a 1000 to 1500 watt RMS that is RMS RMS RMS RMS amp not one that says 2000 watts MAX POWER cuz thats cheap ****... get a kicker JL hifonic alpine or something in that category that actually tells you the TRUE power output of the amp... then run those 4 subs in a parallel circuit so its like really only having 2 subs. make sure then these subs do not run less then 2 ohms at the terminals while in a parallel, then bridge these subs acting as 2 subs not 4 to your TRUE 1000 watt amp and you should have a good powerful system

Hello freshman_fox,

63 watts X 2 @ 4-ohms.

125 watts X 2 @ 2-ohms

250 watts X 1 @ 4-ohms bridged

Since no power rating is given @ 2-ohms in bridged mode, it means that the amp is only stable to 4-ohms.

The manual does not specify a peak power, but since RMS is about 70.7 of peak, that makes it 353.5 watts.

You can download the manual from here. Hope this helps.

hey" i got 2 behringer 2500 amps and i have 2 peavey speaker that are 4 ohms 2000 watts eachand want to mono the amp separte,and i want to run 1 amp to each speaker so can you help me?

Nov 26, 2008 | Behringer EUROPOWER EP2500 Amplifier

400 watts delivered to 300 watt speakers the only way to do this would be to wire two subwoofers in series so that the power needed to drive them will be 600 watts to max, however this will increase your impedance on the speaker (8 ohms) load so what you can do to compensate is get an 8 ohm 600 watt resistor and put it in parallel with the speakers you will then have 4 ohms of impedance at a total capacity of 600 watts of power
In other words the amplifier won't blow these out now.
