I purchased the Rockford Fosgate PBR500X1 in november of 2013. It functioned properly with the Rockford Fosgate P3S-1X12 subwoofer for about 1 month, then it began to mysteriously shut off. Now, this amp was recommended by SonicElectronix on the bio of the subwoofer, but come to find out that the subwoofer was not correctly cooling itself or letting the amp cool down either. All wiring was done in recommended 10 gauge with 35A fuse with the Kicker amp kit I purchased as well. I am now in the market for the Rockford Fosgate R500X1D amplifier to not run at 1 ohms but at 4 ohms to help cooling with it not only being D class but at a lower wattage for the subwoofer to still kick but to stay cool. Overall, good amp, just I don't believe that class BR is good for any sub over 8-10".

This amp is an amazing performer. Birth sheet says it puts out almost 600watts rms at 1ohm. It definitely pulls current. Pushes my kicker L7 at 1ohm and does not drop out. It does run hot at 1ohm, so you might need cooling. Because of the heat, I question it's durability.
