Technics REQ0207 100W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier
What would be a good choice in plate amps to drive a Team Solid (B&W) subwoofer? Has two 8ohm drivers (100w max)
I would not recommend this amplifier for two 8 ohm woofers. Even with them wired in parallel for a 4 ohm load, the amplifier will only produce about 25 watts or total output. You would be better off using something like our SA100 plate amplifier.

Can I use this plate amp to run 2 aura bass shakers? If so, how would I wire them?
Yes this will power two bass shakers, you will want to wire them in parallel.

Would this work well as a replacement amp for a 100w 8" home theater sub? This will be a secondary sub, not the primary sub. Thx.
This amplifier is designed for a 1 ohm load, so anything higher than that will greatly reduce the amount of output you get. If your woofer is 4 ohms, you will get roughly 25 watts. You will probably be farther ahead getting something like the Dayton SA70 or SA100 models.

Hey, I have a couple old 12" subs laying around and was thinking of hooking them up for a little extra bass in my hometheater. How would this amp fair for such a purpose (2 ohm load)?
Yes this amplifier will work for that application.

can this amp be used with 2,4,8 ohm speaker(s) or is it limmitted to 1 ohm spkrs?(s)
This will work with higher impedance drivers although the power output will drop significantly with anything higher than 1 ohm.

Where can I find the power cord for this plate amp? Does PE not carry it? Any other suggestions?
I am planning to build a tower speaker using the Bravox 10" closeout speaker and a plate amp for the lows and a closed portion of the tower for the midbass and tweeter. I'd like to make the sub powered and the mid and tweet passive. Will use BassBox Pro and Filter Design software to do crossover. However I was hoping to find a plate amp that I could use which would have low and high pass filters, so all I would have to do would be design a 2 way crossover...using a Bravox and plate amp in EACH tower makes this a little funky because the plate amps have inputs and outputs for both left and right speakers. Anyone foresee any problems trying this? Do you think this little plate amp has enough power to drive the 10" Bravox or do I need more amp?
This "D Type" power cable [round + D] can be purchased at your local electronic shack or hardware store. Lumber/electrical supply stores as well. If I need one in a hurry [oops--forgot my cord] that's what I do. I can't find one on PE's site either. I will leave a note about it. This amp has enough power to drive your tower woofers. You really should use another amp for the mids/highs though--or a more powerful amp. A traditional rack amp using passive crossovers will give you the cleanest sound. You can use this amp to drive the whole thing, but you need a 3 way passive 12db per octave crossover to keep the cost down. I will list suggestions.
