Dayton SA1000 subwoofer amp

For Sale is my trusty Dayton SA1000 amp.

It was used to drive a ported sub for the past year or so. Gain level never exceeded 1/2 on the dial, and I take GOOD CARE of my gear. I've never been able to get the 12v trigger to work, its likely just something easy I'm missing, but I wanted to mention that up front.

Honestly its not that big a deal as I just left the amp on 24/7 and the LED isnt that distracting compared to say the display on a iNuke or Crown or QSC.

I am ONLY selling because I bought a different amp, so this one is being sold to buy more drivers and boxes.

This amp is capable of driving 2 subs total (it has 2 binding post connections), but only if the total ohm load combined is not LESS than 4 ohms, and it treats them as a single sub so you cant EQ them independently.

I have the original box and inserts so shipping is possible but not included in the listed price. I ONLY ship insured with signature required, so make sure you factor that in to your cost.

Asking price is 300 + shipping. These go NEW for 400 all day long, and even on eBay they are going for 330 give or take . I am willing to entertain offers, please send those via Private Message (PM).

Payment Methods: I prefer cash or Paypal, but am open to other payment options such as check or money order if I know you.

Below are pictures of the actual item and then the manufacture specs

Product Description

The SA1000 is a freestanding, high-power subwoofer amplifier designed for the DIYer, installer, and systems integrator. This unique monaural subwoofer amplifier 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).

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.
