Reliable? Should I buy or not?

I'm looking at the Pyle PLDBT30U or Pyle PLD3MU, both single din with built in touchscreen.

Thanks.

Okay, general consensus: Pyle *****.

WHY?

Because it is a very low quality product, ie: 'pyle of ****' just like Sony HU's and subwoofers.

Now we're getting somewhere.. A semi-helpful post.

Anyone actually have any experience with a Pyle HU?

I have not.
But as far as Pyle products go, they're generally poorly crafted/manufactured/designed and either provide poor quality or don't last long... or both.

Um, Sony's higher end headunits are pretty ****** and very affordable. I picked one up with time alignment, huge equalizer, DSO 3d or some ****, had absolutely everything . Had it not get stolen out of my car I would probably still be using it.

Sort of like Lanzar's stuff is crap, but when you step up to the higher end opti series, its a whole 'nother ball park.

You are gonna buy that thing, not like it, and be stuck with it. Resale value on Pyle stuff is low. Just fall in line and get a Pioneer/Alpine/Kenwood/Eclipse.


I don't like Pyle because it just doesn't look like it will last a week.

DVD, VCD, CD, MP3 Player with Built-In Bluetooth and Remote for under $200 is a good deal, but its that cheap for a reason.

Be the guinea pig and be the 1st on this forum to try it out.

I don't "really want one", I'm just trying to find out exactly why everyone thinks they're so ******. I don't want answers like "because they are", I want hands on experience of why they aren't any good.

I don't understand how something can be ****** if you just use it correctly and take care of it. What makes it ******? That's all I'm trying to find out.

thaey are just poorly made..
they use the cheapest parts available and they dont work well

like i said, ytou will find no one on here that runs them becasue everyone has more sence..

I've never tried a Pyle hu but I did have a Pyle amp back before the days of the internet when I didn't know any better. It was all show and no go. I'll never own a Pyle product again.

09-28-2008, 11:37 PM
Overrated.
Low quality.

But that's an amp. I would never buy a Pyle amp or sub, but this is just an HU.

its like cheap for a reason. u get what u pay for and for car audio that is true. ok it will work good then it will stop and u will be out of what ever u spend for it thats what i think. i would say about 2 years ago i got a amp from them a 4 channel 400 watt amp i said to my self its only a 400 watt amp it cant be that bad. it was so bad i could not even use it at all. so to each is his own i guess u like the price. I say buy right the first time so u might have to save up a little longer but it will be worth it.

Just like nearly every hobby, people know what junk to stay away from just from experience.

If you really want to try it, then go ahead and get one, then post reviews, who knows, it may become the next forum boner.;)

You sound like you have one already. You read how people feel about them, and you are trying to justify buying one. Dude, you can go to any flea market in the world, and if you even look like you know what you doing the people won't try and sell you no Pyle ****.

this thread is growing faster than i can read it, and every post is the same and it is all coming from people who are experienced...catch the drift?
you can get a low end kenwood or alpine for less than 100 bucks, put a 40 dollar dvd playr under your seat from walmart and put a 7 lcd screen in your car for another 60. and you will still be better off apparently.
no one is trying to steer you wrong here

bl0ckd
09-28-2008, 11:49 PM
Yup, right on. I bought one and I'm pretending like I didn't.

Good call.

ok I am sorry OP about all the guys on here, none of them have dealt with Pyle and going on here say.

Now for myself I have installed numorous Pyle h/u's and very impressed with different controls enabling you to control the freq to your perfection, and the prevolts these put out are underrated.. with this said they are great decks and never had a problem out of any of them and think they are second to none.

I give you the go ahead to buy one, you wont be sorry

the last time i tried Pyle was way back in the late 80s early 90s and it was the Pyle Pro subs and mids series now for the cost they sounded pretty good. but lately from what i've seen Pyle has went down hill like alot of companies.

I think I remember a thread a while back that the Pyle square subs were better than the Kicker solo square subs....Pyle has some pretty sharp looking products....the Chopper series amps are pretty sweet....

09-29-2008, 12:06 AM
Ok, well, thanks to the few of you who actually posted semi-helpful posts. I'm not as experienced as most of you, and was just looking for a few wise, flame-free responses, but I guess that's too much to ask.

I'm done now. :)

I'd love to try the 4000 watt Pyle Chopper Series amp...its only $150.00 that has to be one of the best bargins ever ......only like .04 cents a watt...even if its a little over rated...it still has to be the best bargain ever...right :confused:

Just a head unit???
:wow:
What kind of system are you trying to build? Swapmart competitor show car?
Most peeps dont have $ coming out the hole, we save or bargin. Get something nice to build on.

Back in the days, I had Pyle drivers, 12, which was fine for a kid in school back then, they pounded. But I never seen anything else made by Pyle that was worth a dam.

when I was 16 and didn't have a job my mom agreed to buy me a pyramid cd player for 40 dollars. it worked but within 6 months it was having problems ejecting cd's. I also used a pyramid 1600 watt amp to power a pair of type r 12's. it made decent power for 80 dollars and I used it for a year running it on a none recommended ohm load. but would not suggest buying those now. you can see in my signature that i have upgraded my equipment quite a bit since then. pyle stuff will probably be just like pyramid. it will work for a while maybe even a couple years but will not have the quality or the durability that a premier, alpine, elcipse or sony cd player would have. (sony does make some decent head units).

Don't forget these with your new headunit
