Preamplifier Output Channel Quantity:4
Maximum Output Power:3000-watt
The Pyle Academy series is an affordable option to provide high-power, high-quality sound to your vehicle’s speakers. Academy amplifiers are sturdy with amp heatsinks and accept both low level RCA inputs as well as high-level, low-impedance MOLEX inputs. So you can rock your tunes no matter what kind of head unit you have. The PLAM3000 is a four-channel, 3000-watt bridgeable amplifier. It’s equipped with variable gain control, a built-in variable subwoofer crossover, and a three-way configuration. The MOSFET pulse width modulation power supply allows for a clean, distortion-free signal to your speakers. To keep both your car and the amplifier safe, this model is equipped with thermal, overload, and short circuit protection. Welcome to the academy – the Pyle Academy.
Smart Sound and Style
Versatile Hybrid Amplifiers
The Pyle Academy Series Amplifiers will provide your audio setup with sophisticated new sound and serious power. Add performance and quality enhancement to your music when you upgrade your audio system with these rugged and high-efficiency amps. Enjoy tomorrow’s advanced sound technology that outperforms all other amps in its class.
This lineup of Pyle Academy amps will educate your audience with the knowledge of true sound quality. These amps will give you that sound you’ve been looking for with crisp music reproduction in the mobile environment.
These high-efficiency class-D amplifiers host an impressive power output and are where form and function meet. Configurable for Bridgeable and Tri-Way applications, built-in Variable Subwoofer Crossovers, MOSFET Pulse Width Modulated Power Supply, High Level Low Impedance MOLEX Input Connector, strong frequency response rates along with plenty of more features that make the Pyle Academy Series Amplifiers smarter than the competition.
Safety features include power and protection LED indicators; soft turn-on/off, thermal, overload and speaker-short protection. The built-in air-induction fan cooling system acts as another line of safety keeping you and your equipment safe. Status LED Diagnostic Condition indicators show when the amplifier is powered up normally and when your system is experiencing a protection fault.
Intelligent Sound – Intelligent Style
The smooth-edged and rounded design leaves a blue-pearl gloss finish on the fortified aluminum heat-sink. The stream-lined and high-tech appearance will definitely add some attention to your audio.
Total Audio Control
Once you are connected, customize and adjust your listening experience to your liking with the amplifier’s control center. You can personalize and fine-tune settings like:
- High-Pass Filter – When Crossover Mode is in High-Pass Mode, this control limits the frequencies which will be distributed to the speakers Crossover Switch – Routes output of the Low Pass (LP), or the output of the High Pass (HP) filters, or ‘FULL’ to the internal power amplifier.
- Low-Pass Filter - When Crossover Mode Selector is in Low-Pass Mode, this control limits the frequencies which will be distributed to the speakers.
- Line Input – Accepts line level (RCA) inputs from 0.2 to 5-Volt.
- High-in - Accepts speaker level inputs from radios that do not line level (RCA) outputs.
*Please refer to table below for amplifier specific information and adjustment options.
Turn the volume control on the amplifier to minimum initially. Once the initial power sequence has been performed, set the volume control to roughly 80% of full power. Play some audio and slowly turn up the amplifier volume control until you hear some distortion, and then back it off for the sharpest sound setting. This amplifier has RCA connections for Low Level inputs. Low Level signal is carried through RCA cables. It is preferred to use Low Level inputs to the amplifier if the headunit is equipped with matching outputs.
Speaker Output Connections
Connect right and left speaker wire to corresponding speaker output terminals of the terminals. Be sure to have the positive wire from the speaker to the positive speaker terminal of the amplifier and the negative wire from the speaker must connect with the speaker terminal of the amplifier. Reversing any of these connections will result in the speaker cones moving out of phase which causes bass cancellation.
