Question about Pyle PLA2480 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

PLEASE HELP!!! I have a Pyle PLA2480 car amp and a friend installed it for me, for awhile it worked fine and then one cold night in upstate NY one of the RCA cables broke inside the amp. After removing the broken piece from the inside out I plugged it back in and for starters (because I have to do this everytime I get in my car) to get it to work I have to plug the ground to the amp. then attach half of the hot to REM the other half into the 120batt it won't work on just one then the radio to either one of thoughs now it works great sounds beutiful but the bass-control that I convieniently installed under my steeringwheel does nothing the light comes on but no bass-control. Now that its on and working (except the bass-control) ITS ON and it stays on draining my capasitor and my battery when I shut off my car the only way I can get it to got off is to unplug all three wires. I am pretty handy and would love to fix this problem myself even if I have to go inside and replace parts, I love the sound when it is working propoly but don't want to fork-up for a new one. If anyone has any ideas that could help please let me know I would really love to keep my current amp. PLEASE HELP!!!

The Amp stays on because you have a constant 12V to the Remote.
If your stereo remote is no longer working then run a wire from a 12 volt source that turns on and off with your ignition something like your radio fuse in the vehicle fuse box.
As far as the Bass Knob if it is connected properly and still not working check the line for wire kinks or cuts that may have happened during installation if you cant find any problems you can get a universal bass knob that plugs via your RCA cables for under 20 bucks.
Hope this gives u some ideas.

Do The Pyle PLG6C need an amp? or can i just connect em straight to my stereo

It depends on your stereo you have installed. Some come with a good amp attached and others do not. I have a factory AC delco and it pushes them just fine. so the answer to that would be based on what stereo you have installed.

Hope that helps.

Pyle PLTAB8 Car Component System, Lights will not turn off. Help

Sounds like he did not wire a remote line from your radio to the amplifier, if he put a 12v from the battery to the amp and the remote spot on the amp then it will not turn off, you will need to either wore a toggle switch to the remote so you can turn it off manually or check the back of your radio for a remote line or splice a remote line from the accessory power supply on your radio so the amp will turn on when the radio is on

Hooked the damn thing up power my subs wonderfully for that evening, and all day today, got in this evening and nothing, checked the amp and red light, ok, fine, checked the manual, says the light protects...

probably something corssed in your speaker wiring. be sure that you did not exceed the ohmage capabilities of the amp, and that no speaker wires are crossed, or shorting out on the frame. if you have too many speakers hooked up, that can reduce the ohmage, and your not supposed to go below 2 ohms -per channel, or 4 ohms bridged mono.
