Mono Input Connection - RCA Type

Select Elite Series Amps may easily be bridged for mono operation by feeding the same signal to both LEF T and RIGHT Input terminals. The simplest way to achieve this is by using a Y-adaptor to connecting your car stereo output.

Speaker Connection - Stereo Amp System

Connect the output terminals to the corresponding LEFT and RIGHT Speakers.

(Fig. 1 below shows a pair of speakers connected in stereo)

Speaker Connection - Mono Amp System

Select Elite Series Amps may be bridgeable from a 2 channel amplifier to a one channel amplifier. The ideal speaker impedance for optimum operation is 4 ohms. The amplifier will provide stable operation when operated between 2 and 8 ohms loads. The minimum recommended speaker load is 2 ohms for each channel in normal operation. When operating in the bridged mode the minimum recommended speaker load is 4 ohms for each bridged channel. Operation of the amplifier below this impedance load can damage both the amplifier and your speaker and will void your warranty.

Elite Series Waterproof Amplifiers

Speaker negative terminals on the amplifier are not used in the bridged mode.

Bridging is done by using multiple channels of an amplifier to drive a common load. Bridging means that you will use more than one source of power to drive a load (speaker). The sources of power are the independent channels of the amplifier.

Some users may automatically set the gain to maximum because they want their music loud, by doing so, they are also increasing the chance of burning out their amplifiers. Please follow the instructions found in this manual to help match the signals correctly. Your system can also become extremely sensitive to noise conditions when you have a high signal level coming Into the amplifier, from your connected source, which should be adjusted accordingly. Avoid problems and match your system levels correctly!

Elite Series Bluetooth Connection

When searching for the amp via your smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled device, the Bluetooth amp network name will appear as '

Pyle Amp

' in your device list. The amp will not require a password to connect. Once successfully paired with your compatible Bluetooth-enabled device, you will be able to control music streaming ability into the Pyle amp. Choose from streaming audio to adjusting volume controls -- all from your device.

Your amp comes with all required mounting hardware. When determining a suitable location in your vehicle for the amp, please

Mounting

remember that this is a high-power electronic device that is capable of generating high temperatures

Mounting

Always choose a mounting location which will be susceptible to the least amount of vibration, provides adequate ventilation, free of dust and moisture. Be sure to mount the amp in such a manner as to allow reasonable airflow around the unit.

Mark the location for the mounting screw holes by positioning the amp in the desired location. Located on the outer edges of the amps, you will find notches in the heatsink that allow for the amp to be fastened. Mark the location for the mounting screw holes by positioning the amp where you wish to install it. Use a scribe (or one of the mounting screws) inserted in each of the mounting holes to mark the mounting surface. If the mounting surface is carpeted, measure the hole centers and mark with a felt tip pen.

Before attempting to drill the mounting holes and securing your amp, take note of any wires, lines or other devices within your vehicle which may be located behind the mounting surface. Be sure as to not interfere with any of your vehicle's safety features, wiring or other electrical systems. Then, drill the pilot holes in the mounting surface for the mounting screws. Tighten screws securely.

Elite Series Waterproof Amplifiers

Mounting...

When making electrical connections with your amplifier and vehicle battery, please take precaution and have a professional, or install under the supervision of a professional.

Use the proper gauge wire for power and ground connections.

Wire the amplifier directly to the car battery.

For ground connection, use the shortest possible wire to a secure chassis ground.

Wire the remote connection to the auto start lead of your head unit, equalizer, or power antenna.

Circuitry Protection

Built-in fuse systems and circuitry protection protect both the amplifiers and your vehicle's electrical systems. If you ever need to replace the fuse, or feel your system has become faulty, please contact Pyle technical support, or consult the assistance of a trained professional. When replacing fuses, be sure to use ONLY a fuse of the exact same type and rating, otherwise may result in damage or fire.

The built-in protection circuitry in the amplifiers will disable the amplifier if it senses an input overload. a speaker short circuit, or extreme temperature conditions. When the protection circuit is activated by any of these conditions, the

Protection LED will be illuminated. If this occurs, carefully inspect the system to determine the source of the problem.

• If the shutdown was a result of a thermal overload condition, allow the amplifier to cool down before attempting to restart.

• If the shutdown was a result of an input overload. or speaker short circuit, be sure to correct the condition before restarting. The amplifier can be restarted by turning the remote power OFF and then ON again.

Troubleshooting

No output.

Confirm that all terminal strip connections are secure and tight.

Check both In-line and built-in fuses. Both the + 12V am the Remote terminals must have + 12V referenced to chassis ground. Confirm that the audio signal source (car radio, equalizer, etc.) is connected and is supplying output signal. To check if the amp is supplying signal, unplug the cables from the signal source (but leave them plugged into the amp). Briefly tap the center pin of each of the disconnected RCA plugs with your finger. This should produce a noise (feedback) in your speakers.

Only one channel works.

Confirm that all terminal strip connections are secure and tight.

Check the Balance control on the head unit (or other source) to verify that it is set to its midpoint

If you are using the Low Level RCA input, reverse the input plugs at the amplifier

(ie., switch the L with the R). If the channels which is silent switches to the other side, the problem is either in the signal source (head unit) or the other connecting cables.

Weak output.

Readjust the Input Level Control(s) to better suit the Input signal.

Noise in the audio.

If the noise is a "whine" whose pitch follows the engine speed, confirm that the amplifier and any other signal sources (head unit, etc.) are properly grounded. If the noise is a ''clicking'' or

''popping'' noise whose rate follows the engine speed, this usually means that the vehicle is equipped with resistor spark plugs and wires, or that the ignition is in need of service. Check the routing of the speaker and input wires to make sure they are not adjacent to wires which interconnect lights and other accessories. If the above steps fall to Improve or clear noise

Precautions

Do not operate the amplifier when it is un-mounted. Attach all audio system components securely within the vehicle to prevent damage, especially in an accident.

Do not mount this amplifier so that the wire connections are unprotected, or in a pinched condition, or likely to be damaged by nearby objects.

Before making or breaking power connections in your system, disconnect the vehicle battery.

Confirm that your head unit or other equipment is turned off while connecting the input jacks and speaker terminals.

If you need to replace the power fuse, do so with a fuse identical to that supplied with the amplifier.

Using a fuse of a different type or rating may result in damage that isn't covered in the manufacturer's warranty.
