Pyle PTA1000 1000W Power Amplifier
Pyle PTA1000 1000W Power Amplifier is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good ampI'm using it to power a second bass cabinet. On the good side, it has balanced XLR and balanced or unbalanced TRS/TS inputs. Plus a ground lift. A separate speakon for bridged mode is cool. The sound quality is surprisingly above average. The level pots are detented. On the bad side, the fans are very loud. I'll probably replace them with some quiet computer case fans and speed and temperature control. If you're not using a rack, you could drill or punch vents in the top and bottom and not use fans at all. The signal and level LEDs are set way too high. As for the wattage, it's around 100 watts RMS bridged at 8 ohms and matches my 100 watt bass combo perfectly. Unfortunately, the limiter isn't part of the line out on my combo, so one will have to be added. It also works good with bass or guitar software or pedal simulators.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent amp for the moneyI purchased this amp to drive two pyle 1000 watt 15 inch subs. Using the XLR inputs and speakon outputs I am able to get the full output of the amp. I ran a low frequency sweep from 20 to 400Hz and nearly shattered the windows. One, maybe 2 leds lit. Using the trs or 1/4" inputs results in very low output where the volume control is set at about 3/4 and the leds max and clip and you could have a normal conversation over the speaker volume. Something must be wrong with the 1/4 wiring. As long as you use the xlr inputs you should be ok.Rock on

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quite Possibly The Worst Amplifier I've Ever ExperiencedLet me give you a little bit of backstory here, for the past 4 years I have been DJing elementary school dances in my area, using a Technics SA-600 home audio receiver, manufactured in 1979, rated at 70 watts RMS per channel, into 4 channels. This was driving a pair of Sansui SP-x8000 and a pair of Advent Legacy's. All of the dances were outside, and let me tell you, it was so incredibly loud that I had many parents ask me to turn down the volume at every dance, and I could've pushed the receiver much farther than I was. The receiver was *easily* putting out 250 watts per channels RMS. This is what frightened me and encouraged me to transition to current equipment designed for such heavy usage, I was worried that any number of things would happen during the dance with either the receiver or the speakers: output transistors blow in the receiver, heat sinks cannot move the heat away fast enough and something catches on fire, speakers blow because I am overpowering them, etc...So I researched into DJ power amplifiers and the PTA1000 caught my eye because of its low price and supposedly high wattage. I figured with my new DJ speakers, wired in parallel (4 ohm load with parallel wiring), into the PTA1000 in bridged mono would be plenty of power. I was so dead wrong, it was pathetic. I set up my gear at the dance and turned on the first song and it sounded absolutely positively horrible!!! The amp was clipping whenever the bass hit, and I had the amp running at probably 60% capacity. It behaved almost like a 150 watt amp. I have never in my entire life been so disappointed with one piece of electronic equipment in my entire life.Please please please do not even consider purchasing this amplifier. I wholeheartedly guarantee you will be disappointed. Please spend the extra money to buy an amplifier that will provide the power you need, and to save yourself the frustration and humiliation you will garner if using this amplifier for anything other than backyard usage.Pros:-Does actually amplify sound-Seems somewhat well builtCons:-Extraordinarily bright power LED, I have electrical tape over it and it shines through the electrical tape-Behaves like a 150 watt and clips at every possible opportunity-Cannot outpower a 1979 Technics SA-600 that runs at 70wpc, while this is rated at 230wpc-Apparently manufactured too wide and will not fit in a standard equipment rack, and the holes don't line up-Mine arrived with many QC issues, that for the life of me don't even need to be listed, because if you aren't dissuaded from purchasing this product yet, you are insane.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't meet all.The PTA1000 seems to be a great deal for the money, but this amp:-pushes less power to the speaker than a reference-series 100 watt Alesis amplifier-only actually pushes 1000 watts when bridged, and even then feels and operates like a 250 watt amp-helps one to understand that you really do get what you pay for. These amps were a huge disappointment, even in a light-duty theatre setting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lightweight and powerful, bad chassis designThe is the lightest amp I have ever seen for the given power output. It should be noted that the 1000W figure is peak power into bridged mono, and stereo RMS is much lower. It would be nice if P/E had detailed specs. For the price, the output quality and power is excellent. The ears are about 2mm too wide, so you can only rack it if your rack will bulge out a little. The worst thing is the erroneously formed mounting holes. Not just a little out of line, but at least 3/8". If the rack ears were stronger 2 screws would be OK, but as is the ears bend.

Pyle PTA1000 1000W Power Amplifier

Is this amp 2 Ohm stable? Can I use this to power Dayton Audio 8" Reference Series HO (300-7090) sub-woofer/cabinet package? I see no RCA jacks, is there some kind of adapter I can use with this?

Asked by: Big_Louis_1971
Unfortunately this amplifier is not 2 ohm stable. You will have to use something like a Rolls ProMatch in order to use the inputs properly. You may want to consider the Behringer A500 instead with already has RCA inputs.

In the bridge mode is the amp running @ 4 ohms or 8 ohms? Is max power then obtained? On this amp it's rated @ 1000 watts I'm sure that would be peak. So true RMS power at 8 ohms bridged would be what??? Maybe 500 RMS???

Asked by: Joey5
This amp is only rated to 8 ohms in bridged mode. Assuming Pyle is rating the output at peak, than 500 RMS would be a safe bet at 8 ohms bridged.

in bridged mode does it have 2 outputs or one? i need it to have a single output like my other pyle 100 amp

Asked by: chefkeith
Yes,any 2 channel amplifier becomes mono,or single output, when bridged.Very simply it takes a mono signal,applies it to one channel,flips the phase and applies it to the other channel.Now the hot for channel 1 is the + side and the hot for the other channel is now 180 out of phase and becomes - side,the ground goes away.This is why you don't use the usual + and - ,or depending on the brand, the red and black terminals.When bridged you use the two + or as above red terminals.Depending on the brand channel 1 is the hot side.Do not bridge an amp unless it says it can be, not all designs can be bridged, also do not use the - or black terminal as this could damage the amp.
