Dayton Audio SA70 70W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier
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.

Im curious why this amp has left and right channel rca low level inputs when there is only one set of leads to the subwoofer. How can it separate right and left channel information to a dvc sub or two subs with one set of input leads
This amplifier combines left and right signals for the output to the subwoofer. If you are using a DVC woofer, you will have to wire the coils together in series or parallel as long as the load does not drop below 4 ohms.

Is ther a parts express project box that will fit this amp?
I am sorry, we do not currently have a box that will cover our subwoofer amps. It is a good suggestion though so I will pass it along to our new products guys.

I bought two of these amps to power stereo PUCK bass transducers for my racing simulator project. Two questions actually. Do the line level and speaker inputs function at the same time? Also, does the speaker level pass-through affect impedance? Thanks!
I'm not sure why it made me anonymous, but it wasn't intentional. My name is Tony. Any help is appreciated!
