Dayton Audio SA230 230W Subwoofer Amplifier
Dayton Audio SA230 230W Subwoofer Amplifier is rated 4.4839 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a very nice productThe amplifier is housed in a nice basic metal cabinet, large bolt on the bottom which holds it's large transformer. The amplifier is completely quiet, I was worried about 60 cycle hum, no hum from this amplifier. Lots of good adjustments, it was a real upgrade to my Definitive Technology PF 1500 power plate, no comparison. I can see no downsides to this product, would purchase again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good subwoofer Amplifier.I bough this Amplifier two weeks ago I must say I love the sound you talking about shaking the walls very good power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features & sound qualityI purchased this Subwoofer Amplifier a few weeks ago and I'm totally satisfied with its performance. I connected this amplifier to my surround sound receiver by running a cable between the subwoofer output on my receiver to the LFE input on the Dayton Subwoofer Amplifier. I then connected (in parallel) two 15 inch 8 ohm air suspension speakers to this amp and turned it on. I then made a couple adjustment to fine tune this amp to my speakers and then listened with amazement. I have never heard my speakers sound this good. The bass response was well defined and undistorted even at high volume levels. And it sounds just as good at low levels of volume as well. It's a Great Amp !!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from replace plate ampsI have two klipsch 10inch subs both of the plate amps went out and it was way to expensive to replace them both so i thought I would give the Dayton sa230 a try .boy was I impressed they came alive with such force that they will nock pictures of the wall .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement amp for my subwoofer plate amp!I bought this amp to replace my plate amp (which wasn't working) for my M & K subwoofer. It is much more flexible as far as adjustments are concerned, and really sounds great!I covered the hole in my subwoofer box with piece of wood that I painted black to match.I ended up using the 12 volt trigger to turn on the Dayton amp because it works so much better than the "auto on" that receives the trigger from the subwoofer output of my Rotel amp. My Rotel amp has numerous 12 volt trigger outputs. Luckily the Dayton amp has one too!

Will the speaker terminals accept banana plugs? Spade lugs? Bare wire?

Asked by: Todd H
These are standard binding posts so they will accept bare wire, bananas, speaker pins or spades.

Are rack ears available or ship with the SA230 model?

Asked by: 1trusted1
Unfortunately this amplifier does not include rack ears or have any available separately. It will have to be placed on a shelf if used in a rack system.

I've plugged in a sub cable between my Yamaha receiver's sub out into the LFE on this amp, then wired the sub out ports from the amp to the sub.  I'm just getting a cyclical hum out of the amp itself and no sound from the sub.  Any ideas?

Asked by: DaveWantsBass
If the amplifier itself is humming there is a problem. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, tech@parts-express.com or 800-338-0531 x1.

I just bought the Dayton SA230/2VS8 Dual Subwoofer System Amplifier Package and would like to know how to wire the two subs to the amplifier since the amplifier has only one sub-out.   Please advise.

Asked by: JJMcD
On the second page of the manual below, you will want to wire each subwoofer using the 8 ohm single channel illustration, then wire both subwoofers to the amplifier in parallel.

I have a 1999 Polk Audio PSW-150 plate amp that went out...do you think this amp would be a good replacement for it...of course after sealing the back off on the box and installing a square speaker terminal cup (4" Gold Banana Binding Post)?

Asked by: JAM475
As long as the woofer is 4 ohms this will work very well as a replacement with the modifications mentioned.

Will this work with the MTX HTS28W Dual 8" In-Wall Subwoofer?  Dual 8 ohms impedence, 200 watts RMS/400watts max.

Asked by: Gusano
Yes this will work with that subwoofer. Wire both woofers to 4 ohms and you will get the most from the amplifier.
