Pyle PT3300 3000 Watt Power Amplifier
I have a 600w rms subwoofer I want to power, wired for a 2 ohm load, will I be able to fully power it on one channel?
One of the answers on here has confused me a bit it was by 'hifiralph' talking about how this was a switching amp? Will this amp give me 100% of its power on one channel? I'm thinking it won't. If not is there a way to hook my sub up to get more juice. Also I have an odd sub that i might use in place of the 600w one, it would present a 1.54ohm load. I know that this amp is rated for 2ohm and you wouldn't recommend hooking it up to this amp but my question is would this amp go into protect or would it allow it? Any recommendations on other amps that are close in price that would fully power my 600w sub at 2ohm would be very welcome!
A 1.54 ohm load will likely cause this amplifier to heat up quite a bit and shut off. Is your subwoofer single or dual voice coil?

does this have a 3.5mm imput for mp3 players
No, there is no mini headphone input for personal devices, however, one could use a cable such as I've referenced below to facilitate the connection.

can i use this to power subs?
i have an onkyo reciever that has a pre-out for the subs can i hook it into this then to my two kenwood 12" subs,the reason i ask is because i need a powered sub but would rather use something like this with my car subs instead.
This amplifier will power two subwoofers as long as their impedance is not lower than two ohms. You will have to split the subwoofer output from the receiver and use the Pyle amplifier in stereo mode.

Is my wiring setup for my subwoofers correct? or can it get more power?
okay i have two KDC-W3011 12" subs setup in a rear fire box hooked up to the amp with one positive and one negative going to separate channels on the pyle amplifier, and i'm running it in A+B mode,My question is what kind of load is it getting ? the subs are rated for a 4ohm impedance but i was wondering how i would go about getting them to run at 2ohm and how i would wire it up to do this?Also what are the risks involved with doing this? since i noticed the amp can handle a 2ohm load.I just need to know what wiring diagram i would use to hook my subs together and how i would wire it to the pyle amp and what settings i need to use on the amp itself.
As you currently have it wired, the amplifier is presented with a 4 ohm load on each channel. This is perfectly acceptable, and will be easier on the amplifier than wiring for a 2 ohm load. If you'd like to experiment for yourself, you can simply wire the two subwoofers together in parallel to present a 2 ohm load to one channel of the amplifier. You'd wire the two subwoofers together positive to positive, negative to negative, and then connect one sub or the other (not both) to the "A" channel of the amplifier. This will present the "A" channel with a 2 ohm load, and you would not want to use the "B" channel for anything at all, as it would most likely overload the amplifier.

If this is 550 watts at 4 ohms,where does the 3000 watts come from,how do you achieve that 3000 watt peak?
Peak power all channels driven. This is a switching amp., class D. They work differently than liner A/ B amps. The switching amp uses a switch mode power supply in most cases that turn the transistor on or off. The problem with switching amp is the area of swing between plus waveform and when it must switch to negative waveform. This requires very fast switching circuits. Imagine trying to turn on two light bulbs one at a time so that you could not tell that they were being switched. Now imagine that you are doing it for multiple frequencies an many many bulbs. That a good description for how a switching amp works. Because close to 100 percent of the power is available and not being converted to heat you get great peak. Note a switching amp need this peak power because it runs into a brick wall of distortion if pushed too hard. Hope this helps Ralph

can you connect 2 front bi-amp speakers to pyle pro pt3300? like a polk monitor 40 bookshelf speakers
Yes, you can use the speakers with this amp, but not in a bi-amp configuration. To achieve bi-amping you need two channels of amplification per speaker (Assuming 2-way) and an active crossover matching your speaker. Ideally too, you would also do away with all crossover components for the LF drivers and have only a first-order high-pass on your tweeter. You would still get pretty good results simply bi-wiring the speaker. I don't know where to get an appropriate active crossover for the typical crossover points I would be interested in, and running four amps for two channels is a bit much too unless you REALLY need amazing results.
