Dayton Audio SA100 100W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier
hi I have a cerwin vega ve28s subwoofer with dual 8" subs. The plate amplifier is bad and is rated for 125rms/250 peak. the Dayton audio sa100 is rated at 100watts rms. what is the peak watts? do you think this amp will work for me?
As long as both woofers combined have an impedance of 4 ohms or higher this amp will work. Unfortunately there is no peak power rating for this amplifier.

I am really new to all of this, and now I know what a plate amp is. With that said, I am using it to drive a pair of bass shakers and I am wondering if there is an enclosure I can buy to make the unit a stand-alone near the shakers?
We do not have an enclosure specific for the amplifier although we have a few small knock down subwoofer enclosures that will work. Something like below will be a good option.http://www.parts-express.com/knock-down-mdf-067-cu-ft-subwoofer-speaker-cabinet--300-7068

i have a sa100 amp powering 2 pioneer (ts-w80c)8 inch woofers (400w,4ohm) . when I crank the juice from the receiver very high, the amp cuts out , why. what do I need to do.
This depends on how the subs are wired. If they are in parallel the amp is likely shutting off in thermal protection mode due to the 2 ohm load. They will need to be wired in series for a safe load on the amplifier.

I am interested in buildging a sub with this amp and the epic 10 driver. Is there a 230VAC version of this amp for use in europe? Thanks in advance
Unfortunately we do not have this amplifier in 220V. I would recommend a bit more power for that woofer anyway. You might want to consider the SPA250 which does have a switchable input.

I'm looking to retrofit this into an existing enclosure. The only depth dimension given is 4-3/4" for the unit, but I need to know the depth this needs inside the box measured from the plate flange (to avoid interference with the driver itself). Thx.
The actual mounting depth of this amplifier is 3-1/4" from the back of the flange.

Which outputs should I attach my Bass Shakers to?
The bass shakers are wired to the red and black wire leads coming from the back side of the amplifier. Depending on how many shakers you use, they may have to be wired in series/parallel to maintain a safe load to the amp.
