I got an amp pulled from an RCA console. It had a pre/tuner chassis and power amp chassis. it has 2 umbilicals 1 for power and 1 for signal from the pre/tuner to the power amp. I thought this is great, looked simple enough. I have a few questions.

1. I was able to change the power switch and the power amp does power on - lights on the 2 el84s and the 6FQ7. My question is so that I am not using the pre/tuner how to I terminated the power wires to the pre/tuner. Do I just leave them not connected?

2. I connected the power amp to an iphone headphone out (I dont have a stand alone pre) and with the volume turned all the way full very low output is coming out. The speakers are old philips around 90 db sensitivity. What am I missing here?

3. Also, can somebody comment on what circuitry I have? power output? I dont think it could possibly be any simpler that this, Theres not much in the chassis.

I am attaching schematics.
