Dayton Audio SA70 70W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier
i just recently purchased this amp to power 1 aura bass shaker. i have the gain half way. it runs amazing. but after 30 mins of use, the plate was hot. is this normal? and how long can i run this amp if i play a continuous 75Hz test tone
These amplifiers will get quite warm or hot if they are fed continuous sign waves.

I have this exact amp. It suddenly stopped working. Is it possible to purchase replacement parts (circuit boards, capacitors, etc.)??
Unfortunately we do not offer replacement parts for these and they are not practical to repair. If the unit is within the 1 year warranty please contact tech support so we can see about getting it exchanged.

I have a 12" sub from a car. Can I hook this up to the sub, plug it into my Sony receiver with a A/V cable and have a powered sub to fill out my home theater? I got the sub for free and want a powered sub for the HT system.
Yes this is the type of amplifier you would want to use for that. You will need to make sure the subwoofer is 4 ohms or above so the load on the amp will be safe.

Are any of the dayton sub plate amps 2 ohm stable ? have a 8" DVC 4x4 Ohm sub id like to power
Unfortunately none of our subwoofer amps are 2 ohm stable.

how can i wire 3 tang band W5-1138SMF's to this
The only way you can safely wire three 4 ohm subwoofers to this amp would be to wire them all in series, which will only provide about 23 watts of total output power from the amplifier. You would be better off using 4 subwoofers wired in series/parallel and a slightly larger amplifier.

Can this amplifier be modified to boost the eq curve? Is there a published table with resistor values for given frequency and boost levels? Thanks.
Unfortunately this amplifier cannot be modified in any way.
