PC connections would have 2 black wires in the middle. those leads are +12V Ground and the yellow is most likely remote turn on!

NOT pc connections.
And why not? 12v is main voltage, GND, and 5v for remote...everything seems ok to me

Hi

1v would be enough, you don't drive IC with this voltage, just few transistors that bring 12v to IC and other components...you need only base voltage of transistor so even less then 1v

Well it all depends on what you need, if this amp was made for PC then no, but if for car then it has bigger base resistor or even zener added inside for remote

The amplifier pictured is a USA model by Sparkomatic. The company no longer makes car audio equipment, but when it did - it did so for Altec Lansing. Sparkomatic is considered a budget brand. The amplifier shown is not designed for a PC, but a vehicle. I thought it looked like PC connections, but have been corrected - it is simply the input wiring connections.
