False advertising - 300 whats??? definately not watts.
on September 27, 2013
I purchased the PIP711 to replace an Ik501 that had been dropped and broken.
The items look similar, but thats where everything ends.
The Pyle claims to have 300 watts power and 150 watts rms.
Yet when compared to my Ik501 Kicker (which advertises 20 watts per channel- 40 watts rms)it is only slighty louder, maybe 10 watts total more sound or should I say noise(the way a screaming baby is slightly louder than an adult hollaring, and just as anoying.)
It performs "ok" until about mid-volume, (the ik501 still has a much deeper rich sound even at these levels)then the Pyle just gets bad, it gets increasingly tinny and to the point of almost crackeling as you top out the volume.
Pyle should be fined for such a blatent misrepresentation of its product. I have used their speakers and amps over the years for things, but I never will again. I just can't trust their word.
By the way, I emailed Kicker, and they responded within one day and are willing to completely fix and guarentee my broken, dropped, out of warranty system for $55.00.
I emailed Pyle about this product over two weeks ago, and have not heard a single thing.
SO... this Pyle of sh.... er... junk, goes back to Amazon, and my i501k goes off to Kicker for some much needed repairs.
Do youself a favor and spend the extra $20-$30 for the ik501. It has better bass, lower lows, deeper, richer sound, and a higher accetable listening volume than this so called 300 watt system.
THANK YOU AMAZON for always standing behind what you sell.
