Dayton Audio SA230 230W Subwoofer Amplifier
Hi, I bought this amplifier to drive my outdoor subwoofer, the Polk atrium 10 (http://www.polkaudio.com/atrium-sub10/d/1072C2901) which amp settings should I use for phase and frequency? (I understand that gain is kinda like volume)
Phase and frequency need to be set according to personal taste. Phase will change the blend between the subwoofer and full range speakers. Generally this is either set to 0 or 180 degrees, but you can play with the different settings until it sounds right. Frequency determines how high the subwoofer will play. If your full range speakers play down to 100 Hz for example, you will probably want the crossover frequency somewhere around 100 Hz.

I don't have a 12v trigger out on my receiver so I'll need to use a 12v wall adapter instead. How many amps should the 12v wall adapter be?
The trigger input on this amplifier requires no more than 50mA for it to work properly.

What cable do you need to hook up the 12v trigger from the receiver to this amp? The sub is constantly shutting off during movies and then coming back on when bass is present. The trigger output on my receiver is a 3.5mm jack, trigger input is different?
This amplifier has a small two conductor phoenix connector for the trigger input, so you will have to use a 3.5mm cable and cut one end off in order to use the trigger. This will allow the amplifier to be powered on or off whenever the receiver is on or off.

Am purchasing this amp to drive a single 10 in. Dayton RSS265HO-44 dual voice coil subwoofer. Is it better to use just a single coil (4 ohm), or use both coils in series (8 ohm); or no difference ?
You will want to use both coils if you don't want the woofer parameters to change. Wiring them in series would be the best option in this case.

hey i just wanted to know i wanted to buy 4 auro pro bass shakers and need an amplifier for them would this hold all 4 or do you have one that will and also do i need a normal subwoofer to make them all work or not hope to here from you soon thanks
Yes. If you wire the bass shakers in series/parallel and maintain the 4 ohm load this amp will be fine.

I recently purchased two Dayton Audio SUB-1200's and I'm going to be purchasing two Dayton Audio Sub 1500's. Would you recommend using this to preamp the plate amplifier, for longevity purposes, or would I be wasting money doing so?
This is an amplifier, not a preamp. It will only work with passive subwoofers, or subwoofers that don't already have built in amplifiers, so it will not be beneficial to you in any way.
