Hey,,. Looking to finding out how to hook up properly this amp with the high level imputs. Any special way or device i need to run this amp correctly ?? Right now i have a just the subwoofer output of a home receiver for power going to it. I find its probaly not enough voltage for the amp to run at its  best.. If anyone would wanna buy this amp off of me let me know. I know there might be some vintage guys here that would love this monster amp.

Dear Charles,
I think the best usage you can do with this amp is operate it yourself, although it does have some value as a vintage amp, you will have to add a bit of $$$ to get another unit that has similar functionality. If you still want to sell the beast, eBay is always a good option.
To adjust the voltage levels, you need a small format yet high quality mixer, the good ones start at $80 such as the Mackie 402-VLZ3, very small and will do exactly what you need, get you the voltage level you need plus convert these unbalanced RCAs to balanced XLRs. Connect it all and be happy smile.gif

This amp is indeed a beast but its a high quality beast. You only have three screws cause it's a mono amp and the three connections are for a single balanced input, for subs you don't need more than that. With a few minutes of your time, you can install the more modern Neutrik XLR Chassis Mount connector instead of these three screws.

I don't know how to evaluate this amp either sad.gif
