  • Set the volume control on your radio to 2/3 position.
  • Adjust the gain control for an average listening level.
  • Turn the radio volume down and listen for background noise.
  • Start your vehicle and listen for electrical noise.
  • Making fine adjustments to the sensitivity can reduce background noise and some engine noise.
  • CAUTION: Never turn the sensitivity up further than you need to get clear sound at 2/ 3 volume.
  • This adjustment only needs to be made once.

NOTE
CARE MUST BE TAKEN AGAINST BATTERY OVER-DISCHARGE CAUSED BY THE LONG OPERATION OF THE SET AT A HIGH SOUND LEVEL WHEN THE ENGINE IS NOT RUNNING OR IDLING.

Mono Input Connection
RCA Type Terminals Bridge-Ability

Pyle PLMRA430BT Marine Amplifier Receiver 8

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 connect 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 channel. Operation of the amplifier below this impedance load can damage both the amplifier and your speaker and will void your warranty.

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.

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.

Mounting

Pyle PLMRA430BT Marine Amplifier Receiver 47


Always choose a mounting location that 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 them 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 that may be located behind the mounting surface. Be sure 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.

When making electrical connections with your amplifier and vehicle battery, please take precautions and have a professional, install it 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 get in touch with Pyle technical support, or consult the assistance of a trained professional. When replacing fuses, be sure to use ONLY a fuse of the same type and rating, otherwise may result in damage or fire.

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 the output signal. To check if the amp is supplying a 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 another 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 that are silent switch to the other side, the problem is either in the signal source (the 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 needs service. Check the routing of the speaker and input wires to make sure they are not adjacent to wires that interconnect lights and other accessories. If the above steps fail to Improve or clear noise.

Precautions

Do not operate the amplifier when it is unmounted. 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.
