Dayton Audio SA230 230W Subwoofer Amplifier
I purchased a Dayton SA230. I can't get the 12V trigger to work. My receiver has a 3.5mm jack. Some posts say to use a mono cable and cut off the end. I have tried this with a single and a double ended mono cable. Neither works. Help?

I purchased a home with 7 NHT speakers built into the walls/ceiling, which I power with a Yamaha RX A730. There are also two 10 inch passive subs built into the side walls I need to power. Will the SA230 power both? If not I will just power 1 for now.
This depends on the impedance of the subwoofers. If they are each 4 ohm the amp will only provide full power output to one subwoofer safely. If they are 8 ohm each, they can be wired in parallel and powered with one amplifier safely.

Hi, I bought this amplifier to drive my outdoor subwoofer, the Polk atrium 10 (http://www.polkaudio.com/atrium-sub10/d/1072C2901) which amp settings should I use for phase and frequency? (I understand that gain is kinda like volume)
Phase and frequency need to be set according to personal taste. Phase will change the blend between the subwoofer and full range speakers. Generally this is either set to 0 or 180 degrees, but you can play with the different settings until it sounds right. Frequency determines how high the subwoofer will play. If your full range speakers play down to 100 Hz for example, you will probably want the crossover frequency somewhere around 100 Hz.

I don't have a 12v trigger out on my receiver so I'll need to use a 12v wall adapter instead. How many amps should the 12v wall adapter be?
The trigger input on this amplifier requires no more than 50mA for it to work properly.

What cable do you need to hook up the 12v trigger from the receiver to this amp? The sub is constantly shutting off during movies and then coming back on when bass is present. The trigger output on my receiver is a 3.5mm jack, trigger input is different?
This amplifier has a small two conductor phoenix connector for the trigger input, so you will have to use a 3.5mm cable and cut one end off in order to use the trigger. This will allow the amplifier to be powered on or off whenever the receiver is on or off.
