Dayton Audio SA70 70W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier
Hi, I currently have a KLM 200 watt sub woofer that this plate will replace. It only has one wire to connect to. Which on of the wires on the back of the new plate do I use? Also, can I run a passive woofer off this plate in addition?
For a mono single RCA connection use the Right or the RED input.

The specs say "45 watts RMS into 8 ohms • 70 watts RMS into 4 ohms". How do you tell this amp which ohms you want to use, or does it switch automatically between 8 and 4 based on the speaker you have hooked up?
The speaker that is hooked up provides the load to the amplifier. If you want the full 70 watts you will have to use a 4 ohm speaker, if you have an 8 ohm it will only produce about 45 watts.

I have a Pioneer VSX-823 receiver which has a Preout Subwoofer port. I want to connect it to my old passive Polkaudio RM1000W subwoofer which only has hardwired LR channel connections. How can I connect the Preout Subwoofer cable to this amp?
The preout on the receiver will be plugged into the right line level input on this amp. The subwoofer will connect to the red and black wire on the back of the amp. If each input on the subwoofer is 8 ohms, they can be wired together in parallel for a 4 ohm load.

I have a passive subwoofer (8 ohm, 10-100 watts) and two speakers (6 ohm, 50 watts) powered by a 2 channel 90 watt amplifier. From my audio understanding, this is missing major power. How would I connect all those to a plate amplifier or another option?
You will have to use the speaker level inputs and outputs on the subwoofer amp in order to get it wired properly. The speaker outputs on the stereo amp you have now will be wired to the "From Amplifier" terminals on the subwoofer amp, and the satellite speakers will be wired to the "To Speakers" terminals. The subwoofer will be connected to the red and black wires on the back of the subwoofer amp.

With this amplifier, would I need line level subwoofer pre-outs from my receiver?
This amplifier will accept line level or speaker level inputs, so line level outputs are not specifically required in order to use it.
