Rockford Fosgate is known for bass and the P3D4-12 is one of the best subs out there. it also match up perfectly with the Rockford Prime 500RMS mono block amp which i have.

JBL MS-A5001
Best Answer: Hello,

Your answer is in the specs. =]

Two Rockford Fosgate P3D2/D4-12 will be asking for 1200w RMS. The MS-A5001 is only able to produce ~500~750w RMS @ 2ohms. So, although the MS-A5001 is a Fantastic amplifier, it is only able to put out enough power to drive One sub at its full potential. The best match for two drivers will be the Rockford Fosgate R1200 or NVX JAD120.1; of which, will need the Dual-4ohm version wired down to a 1ohm load. If you wish to go with the JBL amp, you will need Two amps and the Dual-4ohm drivers wired to 2ohms respectively.

could you run 500 watts to this sub and be alright?
Scott A on Jun 10, 2015
Best Answer: Yes. I'm using a AudioPipe 1000.1 Class D mono. But I used a pioneer 850x2 to break it in and one channel only pushed max like 450 and sounded pretty good. But for full potential more is better but you will be happy with 500 long as it's truly pushing500.

CAN I RUN 250 RMS TO POWER THIS SUB?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2014
Best Answer: Well you can if that's what you want to do, but the sub is rated 600 rms. So it will be under powered and needs a lot so it will put some station on your amp.

what kind of amp do you recommend for these subwoofers?
Alex E on Aug 20, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Alex,

With subwoofers, we always recommend CEA Compliant Monoblocks. They are typically the best kind of amp for this application. Two of these, or even One, will work great with amps like the following;

Rockford Fosgate R1200-1D

BRX1116.1D VS PPI P1000.1? Only powering 1 P3d4-12 in a sealed box. I like the idea of having headroom to not overwork the amp and for possibly going to two subs in the future (2 different subs rated to fit the output of the amp)

Best Answer: I would go for the PPI unless the BRX has a specific feature you need for your setup. The PPI is rated for more power and has a cleaner signal to noise ratio. My PPI 900.4 and 1000.1 have been going strong for a few years being played every day. Make sure you have a clean signal going in and let the amp do its job. My audio philosophy is to save money on amps and fancy speakers and put more into a good signal processor and installation materials.. Good luck!

Hifonics ZRX1800.1D
Best Answer: I can say those subs are awesome for the price but I have mine on the Rockford amp. If it's a true 1800 watt amp then yes that's plenty of power for 2 since you only want 600 watts per speaker continuos. That brings you to 1200 to keep the amp from over heating. On another note that needs to be 1800 at 1 ohm

What amp will I need to power 2 of these and will I need a separate battery to power them? I currently have a 2000 Honda Accord and I'm unsure if I would need one.

Best Answer: It would be a good idea to go with a extra battery, but it is possible to run these without a battery. Although it can be complicated and costly it is the best way to wire your system. Especially because Honda's batteries are not very large in comparison to my trucks dual battery configuration. I went with the Hifonics Brutus BRX 1100.1D Super D Class amplifier. It has provided high quality performance at a price point that cannot be beaten in my mind. I have owned Hifonics amps before and they are all still running fine, Although, It lacks the bells and whistles and name recognition of the more expensive amps for a mid level system build it is the right choice.

Best Answer: Hello Nicholas,

You will continue to receive varying answers and vague responses. This is because NO ONE has ANY idea how YOUR specific vehicle is going to react to the Draw of this system. For example, A Mini Cooper will react FAR differently than a Hummer. Unfortunately, your question is far too vague and does not have a "Right" answer. However, ~1200w RMS is a figure where SOME upgrades may be needed.

if I buy the 500x1 mono Rockford amp it does 500 watts rms at 2 ohms and If I wire this to 2 ohms will it be enough to power this sub? the Rockford amps birth sheets are around 600 watts rms
A shopper on Nov 15, 2014
Best Answer: Yes and no. Yes the speaker can handle it. No it is not enough power. I have 2 p3 new edition speakers w/a saz 1500 pushing them bridged at 2ohms. My amp was rated at 2100 rms peak on a meter. That's 1050 pure watts to each speaker. And my amp still clips. These speakers are beast!

Powering one P3d4-12 , how does this amp compare to the HFi1000.1d? Trying to decide which amp to get (for now while budget is tight). On paper the BRX and HFi are just 50W rms apart at 2 ohms with a $10 price difference. Help me out, pros and cons to choose one over the other please. thanks

Best Answer: At this point you are just looking at specifics. Looks, larger or smaller profile, that's really about it. I love my current setup (P3D4-12 as well). You'll never notice 50rms in real life situations. Maybe in a perfect lab situation. I needed smaller form factor to fit it under my drivers seat.

I thinking of pairing one of these subs with a JBO GTO-1001EZ in a 1.5 cu ft sealed enclosure, and wiring it at 4 ohm. Them amp is rated at 650W @ 4 ohm RMS. Would this be a good match?

Best Answer: Hey Mark,

The Rockford Fosgate P3D4-12 is a dual 4 ohm voice coil so what that means is you can only wire it to 2ohm or 8 ohm load. If you wanted to wire it to 4 ohm load then you need to get the version with the dual 2 ohm voice coil. That way you can wire it to 1 ohm or 4 ohm load. I hope this makes sense and I did not confuse you. Please understand with any dual ohm voice coil sub regardless of brand the ohm rating on it can be doubled or cut in half depending on if you wire it in parallel or series.

Best Answer: Hello, well I know nothing of the NVX outside of it's spec which I just looked up. However I can vouch for the P3D4's. I'm not sure 500 watts will be enough for either speaker. I myself have Saz-1500 which actually puts out 2100 watts rms. At last check I'm putting 800w rms consistently in my speakers and they handle it like a champ. I would go with the P3D4's myself.

Best Answer: Hello,

We wouldn't suggest it . The Power Acoustik RZ1-1500D is likely doing about Half its rated figures, which means it would be UNDERPOWERING the P3D4-12 . We suggest seeking a CEA-Compliant amp, providing the figures needed, to insure you get the performance that matches that of the P3. [It is unwise to match an entry level brand with a performance brand like.]

No. The amp is far too much power (1000w RMS @ 2ohms) . The better match would be the Rockford Fosgate P3D2-12 wired up to 4ohms, but then you would be underpowering the driver. We don't suggest the pair.
