Pyle Home PCA2 80 Watt Mini Power Amplifier

The PCA2 mini stereo power amplifier from Pyle provides up to 40W of power on each channel at 4 Ohms. Connect your inputs using the RCA jacks, and output an amplified audio signal over standard speaker push jacks. Itís compatible with any audio or computer device--you can even hook up an iPod using a 3.5mm to RCA jack converter. A master volume control on the front lets you adjust the gain, and treble, bass, and volume controls on the front let you tweak your sound to exactly how you want it. The PCA2 runs on 110V or 220V with a voltage selector switch.

This amplifier gives you the power and versatility you need to create a professional sound system. Its wide frequency response makes it suitable for amplifying any type of audio, including music or vocals. It can be used in meeting halls, restaurants, schools, stores, and at home --the perfect solution for paging systems anywhere. Get the power you need with 2 x 40 Watt to handle all your audio needs.

Power Specifications - Full Range Channels

Peak Power @ 4 ohms
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison. However, some manufacture's do not provide an RMS figure and therefore one cannot be advertised.

Peak Power @ 2 ohms
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison. However, some manufacture's do not provide an RMS figure and therefore one cannot be advertised.

Peak Power @ 1 ohm
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison. However, some manufacture's do not provide an RMS figure and therefore one cannot be advertised.

Bridged Peak/Max Power

Bridging refers to combining two channels on an amplifier to create one channel with double the voltage and an increased power output. A 2-channel amplifier will bridge down to 1-channel and a 4-channel amplifier can bridge to create 2-channels. An amplifier is most commonly bridged to drive a subwoofer.

Remember, once you bridge two channels down to one its final impedance will be 4 ohms unless otherwise specified. This rating lists the Peak/Max power created once an amplifier is bridged.

Amplifier Specifications

Number of Channels
Each channel on an amplifier will power one speaker using a positive and negative cable. There are various types of amplifiers, each designed to power a certain number of speakers. Monoblock amplifiers, also known as single channel, are designed to power one or more subwoofers. These amplifiers often have very high power ratings. On the other hand, multi-channel amplifiers power multiple speakers, usually at lower power ratings. 2-Channel and 4-Channel amplifiers can power car speakers or low powered subwoofers. Occasionally you might see a 5 or 6-channel amplifier that can power speakers and subwoofers at the same time. The most common setup is a monoblock amp to run subwoofers and a 4-channel amp to run door speakers. Check out our Knowledge Base for more information.

Total Peak Power Output
The total peak power output is measured as the wattage per channel multiplied by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

It is measured during a brief musical burst, such as a sudden drum accent. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal.

The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

40 watts
Minimum Impedance Unbridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is not bridged.
4 ohms
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
75 dB
Sonic Certified Amplifier
Sonic Certified amplifiers have been tested by the experts at Sonic Electronix to meet or exceed the wattage ratings provided by the manufacturer. If this is marked as Yes, then you can trust the wattage ratings. If marked as No, then we have tested the amplifier and it did not meet the advertised wattage ratings. If marked as Not Tested, then the Sonic Electronix experts have not yet been able to test the amp.
Amp Bluetooth Connectivity
This feature will tell you if the amplifier has the capability to connect to a Bluetooth device.

Pyle Pro PCA2

July 24, 2014

The product is an inexpensive amplifier. Mine works as I expected it to work. One month, no problems. I'm not in love with the design but it does what it's supposed to do.

The Pyle Pro PCA2 works very well. I did not have any RCA out on my tv so this and a HDMI to RCA converter did the trick. Only negative is the volume control does not have the range on the low volume end that I would like to have. The lowest volume is still a little high.
