Product Description

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.

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.

Sound Specialization

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.

Intelligent Design

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.

Input Connections

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.

I have this amp pushing my 6X9's in the back and my 6 1/2" up front and they sound amazing with no problem whatsoever! I have a 1600 watt Pyle 2-channel pushing my sub. I personally think these are excellent amp's for the money! I dont push it real hard like some people might do but I have no concerns if I should ever decide to.
Pyle makes quality amp's with a budget in mind!! -----Give Pyle a try!!-----

Maximum Output Power: 1600-wattPreamplifier Output Channel Quantity: 4 Verified Purchase
So its a well known fact that most amp makers "fib" about the amount of wattage that is produced by their products. In this, Pyle is no different. This 4 channel amplifier supposedly has 400 watts per channel peak. After reading their own manuals technical specs, I had to put on some waders, because the BS was getting very thick. Their RMS for 4 channels at 4 Ohms is 35w per channel, and 55w per channel at 2 Ohms. I'm willing to bet, that at this amps peak performance, that it would fall well short of 1600 watts. You truly do get what you pay for.

Maximum Output Power: 1000-wattPreamplifier Output Channel Quantity: 2 Verified Purchase
This is a nice little amp with a lot of adjustability. I'm using it bridged to run 1 10" and it works very well. The built in crossover works well. Very Clean sound. You need to do some research before purchasing this amp though. The 1000 watt advertised would only be hit if lightning struck your car on a bass note. The owners manuals that are available on the PYLE web site will tell you the truth. 35 W x 2 RMS or 110W RMS Bridged at 4OHM. The only thing I don't like about the amp is the mounting points are plastic. That would not be ideal for an off road vehicle. I don't know about the longevity of the amps but if this one holds up I would definately buy another one.

Maximum Output Power: 1600-wattPreamplifier Output Channel Quantity: 4 Verified Purchase
bought this amp to see what pyle was about. At first it sounded good but after 5 minutes it shut off. I cut the power off and it worked for another 5 min. Amazon sent me a replacement but this one was defective in a different way. One channel sounded great but another barely pushed any sound out. Amazon sent me UPS labels I shipped them both back and got a full refund(thanks Amazon).

I have been using Pyle speakers since the early '80's, even though there now made in china I still think they are a good value. this amplifier was what I needed for a small sub-woofer but it is not 1000W (that is it's power usage) it is rated at 55W/ch/110W bridged @ 4ohms, always check the manufacturers specs.
