Pyle PT260A Stereo Receiver & Pyle PLMR24B Box Speakers Review :
Sound Quality :
The Pyle PLMR24B speakers are box speakers with a 3-way configuration. Each speaker is fitted with a 1 inch super dome tweeter, a 1.75 inch mid-range driver with wide dispersion cone, a 3.5 inch aluminum injection cone woofer and a 24 Oz magnet structure. Together they generate realistic sound with soaring highs, snappy midrange and rumbling bass. The speakers have extra bass impact thanks to their vented bass reflex enclosures. They have a capacitor crossover network too. The Pyle PT260A receiver sends an amplified signal to the four speakers and they reproduce it beautifully keeping all the details intact. Peak power output of the speakers is 200 watts and RMS power is 100 watts. So you can be assured of at least 100 watts of continuous output from this set. For small outdoor spaces like gazebos and cozy backyards, this is a great weatherproof stereo system. It gives you quality stereo music with plenty of depth and clarity, and has a rugged build to survive tough weather conditions.
