I was AMP'd Up! best in home theater

This little AMP amplifier is small and powerful. Not a full 800 watt muffler, but more of a 300-400 watt muffler. The tone controls aren't great, but for the money it's worth it. Waterproof and easy to install. Would I buy again for a golf cart project.

Pros
  • Free for educational purposes
Cons
  • empty

If you are looking for Bluetooth without power then this is for you.

I'm pretty sure this amp will perform as well as the Jensen main unit. I bought it in 1996? It works as described and works great to power a barbie jeep speaker set. obviously I returned it.

Pros
  • Good product for the price
Cons
  • A few minor things

Small, affordable and powerful

Great amp for marine and space constrained applications. Yes, this little pup is so small and has so much power. 100W RMS x 4 channels. That's impressive for its size. I have used these amps in many applications from subwoofers to cooler stereos to car speakers etc. Very efficient. especially for the price ($72.99). Half the size of a typical aftermarket car audio amplifier.

Pros
  • Weight
Cons
  • I'll write later

The power specification is VERY high

Okay this is a decent amp for the money. However, the power rating is not even close. I used this for a patio sound project and it works well in that setting. Decent sound (again for the money), I doubt it will work well on a boat as it struggles with background noise. I gave it a 3 out of 5 based on its power rating, but for small applications (projects) with little (or no) background noise, the value increases.

Pros
  • GOLS certificate
Cons
  • I won't say anything

Exceeded my expectations

I've never heard good things about Pyle products in general, but I need an affordable little amplifier for my camping/river radio project. This amp met all the requirements. When I hooked it up to my two 7" Alpine Marine speakers, I was very impressed with the volume and sound quality of the little amp. I was even happier when I realized I could run this amp for over 10 hours straight on a 14 amp quad. (I gave up the torture after 10 hours in 90 deg+ heat!) It exceeded my expectations to say…

Pros
  • Satisfied so far
Cons
  • Vulgarity

useless .avoid . - Receiver and amplifier

I can't confirm what sound is playing as it arrived 3 days after I ordered and stop for a day spent by the heat. spent another 2 hours the next morning before throwing in the towel. There is no way of knowing if it is on (LED off). I've never had sound, so I'm assuming it just wasn't working since it was properly plugged in. also noted that it was a return because 1) the box was only sealed with tape, no shrink wrap 2) a waterproof bag was missing 3) some cables were missing zip ties. an empty…

Pros
  • Always liked
Cons
  • Everything is fine

Low power output / generator whine noise.

Good. I was sucked in by a 100-watt RMS X4. With just two speakers in a tower case. but mostly even real 50 watts per channel. like my truck has power over you not impressed yet. The main unit drives another set of wired speakers at the same level as my floorstanding speakers, connected to the amp via an RCA input. I expected a lot more power from 6" floorstanding speakers. Hmm, even when the boat is running you can hear a very loud howling noise from the generator. I connected ground and…

Pros
  • Worth the money
Cons
  • Negative is available
