      I use this device as an additional power amp to run two 12 inch instrument speakers--each is loaded with 15 watts in this way. This tough and compact little amp does a great job of giving me additional volume boost via these two speakers without adding any tonal coloration (i.e. there is value in it having no EQ controls on it). Great deal--so inexpensive. You won't find a better price out there in my opinion.

      2x 15w stereo more like 1.5 watt

      It could be the speakers but other amp (smaller)works better.

                Powers 2 medium size speakers on my deck.
                Mounted the unit in basement with a (chrismas light type)remote control to turn it off and on.
                Amp never gets hot and I leave the volume on full.
                Ran a long cord into waterproof box that I got at a big chain store /camping dept. This way any device with the mini headphone jack out can be used.
                Sure its no mega power house but for my use it's perfect.

                The power light is much brighter than it needs to be.

                    Needed a small amp to power two 3 ohm back speakers in a 7.1 surround setup and the PCA1 was perfect for the job. Puts out comparable volume that the side surrounds do, which are larger speakers. Some people have commented the male RCA plugs are awkward, but they were exactly what my Onkyo receiver required for its pre-out connection. Compact and unobtrusive, this is a great product for someone not looking to break the bank on an over-the-top amp.

                      For those of you who, like me needed to power a couple outside patio speakers, this baby is the right one. You need to purchase an adaptor if you want to power your iPod / MP3, but.....I happen to have had one 1/8" phone jack to RCA "FEMALE" and this thing works GREAT!

                      Comments about Pyle Pro PCA1 Mini 2 x 15W Stereo Power Amplifier:

                      A few weeks back, I sat in my office, sad and forlorn. "Oh," I sighed, "If only someone made a small, simple stereo amplifier for small, simple needs." (I'm easily depressed...)
                      Lo and behold, some magic genie heard my plea and a quick search on the B&H website revealed the perfect solution - The Pyle Pro PCA1 Stereo Power Amp.
                      Why is it perfect? It's small (the size of a nice deli sandwich.) It's capable (Fifteen clean watts a side into 4 ohms.) It's affordable (Close to 50% off MSRP from B&H online.) It's simple (Stereo RCA male plugs for line in, one ganged volume control, and L & R push-type outputs for speaker cables.)
                      I hooked the PCA1 into my trusty (and a bit rusty) Minimus 7's, brought a stereo mini out from my Mac (using a separate audio adapter) and Voila! Music to my ears (literally...)Even when I pushed the tunes to 75%, the amp added nothing but gain (any more juice, and the missus would have me continuing the aural excitement in the garage.)
                      No question - The Pyle Pro PCA1 amp is a great value at a low price.
                      Let's face it - There are times when you don't need to use a bazooka on a housefly. And the Pyle Pro PCA1 is the perfect flyswatter for your audio houseflies.

                        This device is perfect for a 'small job' amplifier.
                        My use is to interface the pre amp audio output of TVs
                        with a wireless headset using.
                        It's small in size, easily portable and has a very low noise, distortion output.

                        The only fault I have with the unit is there are no RCA jack outputs.
                        I was able to overcome this 'deficiency' by installing RCA in the rear plate.

                              I have a studio with wonderful monitor speakers, but I wanted something a bit more low-fi, so I use this amp with some not so great speakers to flatten my mixes. Funny thing is though, it sounds pretty good! I was going to buy a cheap electronic kit to build-your-own stereo amp, but by the time I bought the kit and the other hardware, this amp was cheaper and all put together... go figure! What ever you want for this kind of money, this is it and certainly a bit more... !!!

                                I use this little jewel to power my outdoor speakers on our deck and it works fine.

                                  I've got a user with an interactive whiteboard. The DVD player was too soft to hear in her classroom. After installing this box (and buying the appropriate RCA-BareWire cables), the kids can hear the DVDs superbly! Excellent device!
