    Product details

    Dayton Audio SA1000 Subwoofer Amplifier Rack Mountable


    The Dayton Audio SA1000 is a freestanding, high-power subwoofer amplifier designed for the DIYer, installer, and systems integrator. This unique monaural audio device delivers the raw power of a pro-sound amp, but with the features and flexibility of a dedicated subwoofer amplifier. It can be configured for stacking with other audio components, and includes removable ears for mounting in standard audio racks (2RU). The SA1000's patented tracking down-converter power supply ensures headroom for instantaneous power needs and the amp stays cool, thanks to its high-efficiency design.


    A Class-AB amplifier configuration provides the SA1000 with clean and controlled output. From an application standpoint, the SA1000's low frequency parametric EQ enables you to boost or cut to custom-tailor the sound to suit the listening environment. Sophisticated soft clip circuitry provides cleaner transient peaks while protecting your driver from over-excursion. The amp's switchable subsonic filter removes subsonic information from the signal, which tightens the low end response of some subwoofer systems. On-board bass boost filters enhance LF performance while leaving the parametric EQ function available to address room modes, like cutting an excessively loud room resonance. The high-pass outputs provide a user the option to feed the signal back into their other audio components or a distributed audio system.


    Manual, automatic on/off or triggered 12V input modes allow easy integration into automated systems. The stealthy pop-out knobs on the front panel make adjustments easy, while minimizing the risk of accidental disturbance. The SA1000's subdued brushed black aluminum faceplate allows the amp to blend cosmetically with any type of audio gear. Accommodates RCA line-level inputs, includes insulated binding posts for the speaker outputs, and accepts a 12V trigger via a 3.5 mm mini-jack.

    Very good amp! For those that come from a subwoofer Plate amplifier that has died, this item has a very clean and powerful sound. My Hypex DS4.0 died a few weeks back and I couldn't find a worthy substitute. The plate amps I found seemed cheap and after weeks of trying to find a good substitute, I found this amp. After using this, I will never build an active subwoofer again, only passive ones!

    Pros: High Power with a stereo line in and LFE for those that want to use it for movies and music; Low Distortion; Low generation of heat; high weight; An overkill to my 60kg sealed 15" Dayton RSSA390HF-4 subwoofer, but it drives it very very smoothly.

    CONS: Shipped fuse (T5AL) was blown on first use, had to change it and all worked fine from that point on; On LED is very very bright, have to cover it as this AMP and my AVR sit in front of the room and on cinema nights it is too bright and distractes you from the media content;

    Highly recommended purchase.
