Dayton Audio SPA1000 1000W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier
Need a 4m power cable to reach my power conditioner. Any issue with this length with this amp?
As long as the cord is at least 18 awg but preferably 16 gauge or larger you will be ok. This amp can draw up to 8 amps and an 18 gauge power cord is rated at 10 amps max.

Have this hooked up to dayton 12" 2 ohm dvc in series. Using stereo pre-outs from integrated amp. Integrated is on power conditioner. Plate amp is not. Am getting some ground hum. Thoughts on how to resolve?
Tech Help:Remove the input signal first, If hum goes away then its coming from your pre-amp. If not, then try making the grounds common ( same outlet or strip) or try a ground lift on either component.

I have two DVC subwoofers with each voice coil of 4 ohms. In order to generate a load of 4ohms, I an either wire speaker coils in parallel(2ohms each) and both the speakers in series(4ohms) or vice versa. Which way is better ?
It makes no difference, the end result will be exactly the same either way.

Is this amp 2 ohm stable? I would like to drive two titanic 12" subs that are 4 ohms each. I would be driving them in parallel which would make it a 2 ohm load. This is the reason I would need a amp that is capable of a 2 ohm load safely. Thanks, Max
The SPA1000 is stable down to 4 ohms.

What size drill bit should I use to drill the holes and what size screw should I use? Do you have a set of screws that you sell for this particular amp?
This amplifier includes mounting screws. Generally you will want to use a drill bit that is about the diameter of the shaft of the screw, minus threads. This will probably end up being something close to 1/16" or 3/32", but you can verify by comparing the screw to the bit used.

Assuming an enclosure made of 1" thick MDF, how far into the enclosure will the amp protrude? The specs say that it is 5" deep. Mounted on the outside of the enclosure, will it actually stick into the enclosure a full 5"?
Yes, the actual mounting depth for this amplifier is 5", but you will want to allow about 1/2" for the wire lead as well. If the amplifier is surface mounted, I would recommend a total depth of 5-1/2" measured from the mounting surface to the back of the amplifier enclosure.
