Dayton Audio SPA500 500W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier
Can I get a copy of the schematic for the input and output, I have a few bad resistors and can not make the color codes to find the tolerance or values. I have a SPA500 500watt amp same as above just a little older the version is rev:1.
I am sorry, we do not have schematics available for Dayton amplifiers.

I have a single 12 inch Kenwood Subwoofer with a peak of 1000w that I have been trying to use to the fullest of its capabilities with no success thus far. Will this plate amp be enough power to get the most from my sub?
This amp should be an excellent choice for that type of driver.

I recently built a pr. of subs each using a SPA500 amp. Preamp has two sub outs. Intention is to have one sub play the right and the other play the left channel. Question - should I use the Left and Right inputs on the amp with a splitter, or the LFE?
Chances are the outputs on the receiver are mono anyway, not left and right. I would use the LFE regardless and use the crossover on the receiver.

I have an older MTX SW 115 sub w/remote, I think the amp is blown, would you have a replacement amp for this older sub?
We do not have a direct drop in replacement for this, but if the amp's mounting dimensions are the same, then this will certainly drive it.

I made 2 of the DIY 3.0 cubic foot boxes each with the Dayton 15" HF 4ohm and each with this plate amp mounted. With the gain set at 1/4 of the way the house feels like it is going to explode. Too much amp? It also goes to red quickly on serious bass.
The level will really depend on the amount of signal coming in. It sounds like you have a very strong LFE signal. It may help to lower the subwoofer level coming from the processor in this case.

can the spa500 run 2 eminence lab 12'' pro subwoofer or is the yung sd500-6 better or do i need more power?
More power is generally going to be better when driving subs. THe main thing you would want to consider when driving two is the impedance load, If you are using the 6 ohm version of the LAB sub then you can only get a 12 ohm or 3 ohm load. 3 ohms would be too low for this amp to drive safely.
