Reviews around size (5.00 of 5)

  • nice size, fits well in fairing, however, the power output wasn't that great
  • Doesn't seem to have as much power out put as I expected but the easy installation, compact size and water proof design are perfect for my sidexside
  • The small size works perfect in the limited room I have on my side by side and the output powers my two Kicker pods well
  • Too bad because the size of the amp would have been easy to hide in the limited space in our RZR.

Reviews around amplifier (5.00 of 5)

  • I installed an AVIC Z120bt that has an internal amplifier sufficient for the stock speaker setup in my 2005 Scion Xb.
  • that's for sure does not push my 6x9s as good as I would like but slightly better then headunit
  • Anyway, we like to have the game amped up through the back of the truck, and with this neat amplifier, we can hook the audio out of the Portable TV right into the amp and really make it sound like we are inside the stadium AND get all the play-by-plays from the commentators
  • I have never heard many good things about Pyle products in general, but I wanted an affordable small amplifier to use in my camping / river radio project

Reviews around work (5.00 of 5)

  • Amp worked great for a few weeks but has gotten weaker over time due to using the knob that comes with it as a volume knob like the ad says you can.
  • The small size works perfect in the limited room I have on my side by side and the output powers my two Kicker pods well
  • After installing this amp, it worked fine, all speakers worked, after adjusting the gain, I was actually impressed with the amount of sound coming from my speakers out of this little guy.
  • I use one on my teryx works great for the money I can hear and so can anyone around my cart so many people think this little amp is going to blow your ear drums wrong its just enought to hear for a cruise while mudding or on a jet ski works great if your wakeboarding go bigger than this small

Reviews around install (5.00 of 5)

  • that's for sure does not push my 6x9s as good as I would like but slightly better then headunit
  • but, the bluetooth worked fine before the amp was installed
  • Install is easy, and all the hardware is rust resistant, only thing I'd change is the size of the aux jack

Reviews around problem (5.00 of 5)

  • I believe the fault is more with the Garmin Zumo than the amp, but to remedy the problem I bought a 20 dollar preamp and installed it in front of the amp to boost the signal from the GPS to the amp and then it rocked as usual
  • Works great but don't expect 800 watts for this price, does run a little hot but no problems.

Reviews around quality (4.56 of 5)

  • You don't have to spend 200 to 350 dollars for a good quality sound, I know because I have done that, and this amp has saved me a lot of dough over the last 5 years
  • I should have spend a little more and got a better quality amp.. wouldn't buy again
  • Changed it out with a better quality and was worth the extra money
  • They have great sound quality and ear fit is very good.
  • I think these are a great overall quality product for the price, not the best but very very good.

Reviews around sound (4.19 of 5)

  • Okay if your just looking to extend your current stereo but if your looking to boost your sound, KEEP LOOKING!
  • Sound is so bad!
  • I purchased this amp to help boost and clean up the sound on my motorcycle
  • I know good sound when I hear it, and this is by far, the best money I have spent, and best of all, it wasn't a lot of money
  • Still, it did help clean up the maximum sound from my motorcycle fairing mounted system

Reviews around product (4.14 of 5)

  • I think these are a great overall quality product for the price, not the best but very very good.
  • Awesome product for my boat, I've gone through many marine stereos, but this amp is just right for being around a salt water environment
  • However, yet again Pyle lies about what the product actually is (shame on you Pyle, do you really not know that this is why you have such a bad reputation?).As most of the other reviewers state, this amp is no where near spec (i.e. it's about 20 watts RMS per channel at the most)
  • Thanks pyle for a great product, but stop lying to people about the wattage and improve your reputation!
  • Comes with a lot of extras, great product for the price.

Reviews around price (4.03 of 5)

  • PRO's - Great price, crisp, clear, distortion free (with good speakers), small, light weight, external gain adjustment, completely waterproof
  • Definitely didn't sound like a 800 watt amp but it was easy to install and right price for those who need a little more juice to UTV/ATV/Marine applications.
  • For the price and sound it puts out, not bad.
  • So when I saw this with a decent price tag I thought it to be perfect for my boat

Reviews around unit (4.03 of 5)

  • The Pyle PLMRMP3B is a fantastic unit for this for right around $100.
  • Although I am not sure why you would need an amp if you already had a high gain high output head unit
  • Will more then likely replace with a more powerful unit.
  • performs so badly that i wonder if i have a defective unit

Reviews around power (3.83 of 5)

  • The small size works perfect in the limited room I have on my side by side and the output powers my two Kicker pods well
  • but I would recommend the 1200 same amp just more power
  • It also makes some static (humming) noise when powered on
  • The infinity radio works; using same power source and ground

Reviews around speaker (3.81 of 5)

  • PRO's - Great price, crisp, clear, distortion free (with good speakers), small, light weight, external gain adjustment, completely waterproof
  • Had to run 2 speakers pure line & was still low on power
  • The speakers are awesome but amp not worth it and dont know
  • However, if you use a good speaker, (I used polk 6.5" marine speakers), this amp sounds absolutely amazing
  • My question is do you need to hook up 4 speakers to work properly

Reviews around amp (3.65 of 5)

  • but I would recommend the 1200 same amp just more power
  • Lastly, for anyone saying it just didn't work at all, It's possible you got a faulty amp, but I believe it's probably user error in most cases.
  • The setup was not bad, so I defiantly recommend this Amp.
  • More like a booster than a amp did not meet my expectations
  • Worse amp I have ever had the stereo sounds better with out
