Pyramid prides itself on solid car audio without the huge price tag. The PB717X is no exception, featuring two MOSFET-powered channels of 50 watts RMS (75 watts at 2 ohms), bridgeable for subwoofers, and selectable high- and low-pass crossover modes for different applications.

Delivers two channels or bridge mono for subwoofers. The PB171X cranks out 2 x 50 watts RMS at 4 ohms and is 2-ohm stereo stable for 75 watts x 2.
Selectable Crossover Modes
The built-in crossover can be set to full for normal full-range systems, or low-pass/high-pass for delivering specific frequencies to components or subwoofers. Low-pass and high-pass frequency controls are provided for setting the crossover frequencies.
The PB717X includes both high-level and low-level inputs, so you're covered with the various types of car stereos. The high-level inputs take direct speaker wire leads, while the low-level use RCA plugs.
To further match the amplifier to your receiver/head unit, a variable input level control is provided to dial in the perfect setting without distortion.
Subwoofer fans rejoice: The PB717X features a bass boost of up to 18 dB, for added rumble.
The MOSFET pulse width modulated power supply helps provide excellent sound quality, minimal distortion, and efficient power handling.
High-performance audio requires a lot of power, and things can get hot quickly. Like any solid car amplifier, the PB717X features protective circuits. Overload and thermal indicators let you know they've activated and shut off the amp. In the event of a short circuit, power protection is provided in the form of easily replaceable fuses.
