It is connected to my Yamaha RX-V471 by rca cable from the 'subwoofer' out to the line 2 right rca input of the Pyle amp. From there the speaker wires connect to the speaker A Right + and Left - indicated in the manual for use in bridge mode. I set up my 5.1 system using the Yamaha auto set-up. Before I began I turned the Pyle volume for the sub to half (indicated in the Yamaha manual for subwoofer set up). Then I ran the auto-set up. The Yamaha set the level of the subwoofer to +10db. If I find the bass is too much or too little, I turn the Pyle volume for the sub up or down. I've found a little more than half-way is just about perfect.
Auto-on is also working as expected for this amp. When I turn on the TV, the Yamaha turns on then the Pyle turns on a few seconds later and then the bass kicks in. When I power off the TV, the Yamaha turns off and it takes the Pyle about 5 minutes to power down.
This amp was more expensive than a plate amp I was also considering, but this unit fits right in my av cabinet and I can make adjustments easy. I would have put a plate amp in the basement or closet and making adjustments would have been an ordeal. It was worth it to pay more for that convenience. The $84.99 price of this unit seems right on.
For operation, convenience, and price, I give it 5 stars. I wanted this review to provide the information I was looking for when considering this unit as a subwoofer amp.
The nobs and buttons are not the highest quality... but I have never had a problem with them... they just feel cheap
As an added bonus, it's underpowered, and the output switching buttons feel like they came off of a Fischer Price toy.
With an iPod attached to the "Line 2" input, (which is the "primary" input (but why not call it "Line 1"?)), and the TV connected to the "Line 1" input, I thought it would be possible for the TV to activate its input whenever it supplied a sound signal. As warned, it did not work well. The amplifier only switched to the TV input when it was louder than a certain level. This meant that the sound of the TV would switch off whenever the program got too quiet, or had a momentary pause in its sound. Then there would be a delay in switching back on, leading to missing words at the start of people's sentences. I had the same problem with the inputs reversed. The reviews warned all about this, so I took it philosophically and bought a simple 4-line multiplexter to switch between the two inputs. So now the TV sound and the iPod sound lines are both connected to the Pyle amplifier "Line 2" through the multiplexer. Of course you need to select the sound source you want by pushing a button.
The multiplexer I used: see Amazon Cables To Go 28750 4 x 2 S-Video/Composite/Stereo Audio Selector Switch (~$17)
The actual performance of the amplifier is great. The sound is sweet. It sounds to me like an admirably flat frequency response. The amplifier drives my old Bose 301's about as loud as they reasonably can go. It is not earsplitting, but powerful enough for me. The amplifier is relatively light in weight and sits safely on a high shelf.
I would recommend to the manufacturer that they try to improve the sound source auto-switching function. And even more important, they should provide a manual line 1-or-2 selector switch for situations where auto-switching just won't work. But I do recommend this amplifier.
