    First of all, what speakers are you driving that need that much power?

    Second, if the Receiver has Pre Outs, then you can send that to the external amp, but from looking at your unit pics, no can do.

    If you believe that Pyle amplifier actually produces 4500 Watts There are several bridges you might be interested in.

    The rating of 230 Watts x 2 is probably close to what that Pyle amp actually produces albeit at a high distortion rating. In actuality it's probably closer to 100 Watts x 2 with any sort of reasonable distortion figures.

    Given that, there isn't all that much difference between the Sherwood and the Pyle power wise.

    The 4500 Watt rating is what I call a ISBL (if struck by lightening) rating.

    The owner's manual for that Pyle amp states what appears to be the true output as 170W x 2 at 8 ohms, 20Hz - 20KHz, 01.% THD.
