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.
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.

The ButtKicker is not just for special effects
Because it was designed for music, you can now have a full, concert hall audio experience without excessive volume.
Now everyone can enjoy conversations while watching movies. And, because the low end is effectively isolated to a chair, or a couch, or a suspended wood floor, there is much greater control of sound pressure throughout the entire house. Combined, these attributes make the ButtKicker extremely spouse and neighbor friendly. It virtually eliminates low end sound “bleeding” into adjoining rooms or connected housing.
The ButtKicker allows you to feel the low end without making the room loud. You can decrease the sound pressure level from the subwoofer, and still feel all the low end you want.
One ButtKicker can easily replace 3, 4, 5 or even 6 voice coil shakers.
Designed by musicians and studio engineers, the ButtKicker is musically accurate, with a tight, “on-the-beat” transient response and is used by some of the most demanding musicians in the world.
Now only 5.375″ tall and 5.5″ wide the ButtKicker can satisfy more critical space limitations and fit within a 2″ x 6″ joist.
Virtually Indestructable and Maintenance-Free
With only one magnetically suspended moving part, and a thermal switch for heat protection, the ButtKicker is the last shaker you’ll ever need to buy.
The ButtKicker uses a patented magnetically suspended piston system, unlike anything else on the market. It provides tremendous power, musical accuracy, frequency response and longevity.
