Power Specifications - Subwoofer Channel

RMS Power @ 4 ohms
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 4 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.

The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 2 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level.

Amplifier Specifications

Amplifier Series
This designates the series of the amplifier. Many amps are available in a litany of different wattage and channel configurations, but maintain consistent features throughout the product line.
Power (Rockford Fosgate)
Amplifier Class

An amplifier increases the power of the signal being fed to it by taking energy from its power supply and matching the signal but increasing its amplitude. Amplifiers use many different methods for converting these electrical signals and have been categorized into classes.

Class A/B: Greater than 50% of the input signal is amplified while the other percentage is “off”. These amplifiers have a small amount of current flowing through the output transistors all the time which almost eliminates crossover distortion. Class A/B has great sound quality but is not as efficient as class D. These amps are most commonly used to drive speakers.

Class D: Also known as switching amplifiers, class D amps have output transistors that are completely turned “on” or “off”. This means that when the transistors are on, there is almost no voltage across them but when they are off there is significant voltage but no current flowing through it which makes these amplifiers very efficient at the cost of sound quality. These amps are most commonly used to drive subwoofers.

Other Classes: You may see classes such as GH, bD, X, FD, etc. by some manufactures. These amplifiers tend to be either class A/B, D or a hybrid of the two but with improvements to their designs that can make them more efficient or offer better sound quality.

BD
Number of Channels
Each channel on an amplifier will power one speaker using a positive and negative cable. There are various types of amplifiers, each designed to power a certain number of speakers. Monoblock amplifiers, also known as single channel, are designed to power one or more subwoofers. These amplifiers often have very high power ratings. On the other hand, multi-channel amplifiers power multiple speakers, usually at lower power ratings. 2-Channel and 4-Channel amplifiers can power car speakers or low powered subwoofers. Occasionally you might see a 5 or 6-channel amplifier that can power speakers and subwoofers at the same time. The most common setup is a monoblock amp to run subwoofers and a 4-channel amp to run door speakers. Check out our Knowledge Base for more information.
1 - Mono
Total RMS Power Output
Total RMS power is measured by multiplying RMS power per channel by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

RMS power is the amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS figure, the louder and cleaner your music sounds.

The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.

1500 watts
Maximum Input Gauge Size
This is the largest gauge wire that will fit into the power and ground terminals of this device. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire is. For example, a 4 gauge wire is thicker than an 8 gauge wire and thus has higher current carrying capacity. Always do your best to get this size wire to reduce the risk of damage to your components.
4 AWG
Minimum Impedance Unbridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is not bridged.
1 ohms
Minimum Impedance Bridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is bridged.
Not Bridgeable
THD at Rated RMS Power
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
<0.8%
Speaker Level Inputs
Speaker level inputs are commonly referred to as high-level inputs and vice versa. This input type allows you to get your audio signal directly from the speaker wire in your vehicle, instead of using RCA cables. The advantage of this is factory integration, as most stock radios do not have RCA outputs to run amplifiers.
No
Preamp Outputs
Many amplifiers are equipped with RCA preamp outputs which pass the original music signal from the source to additional amplifiers. This is known as daisy chaining because the source connects to the first amp, and the first amp connects to the second amp, etc. The advantage to daisy chaining is you only need one 2-channel RCA cable to transfer the signal from the head-unit to the amplifier, and then one additional cable for each amp being daisy chained.
1 pair
Built-in Crossover

A crossover is a type of filtering system that permits only certain frequencies to play. A Low-Pass (LP) crossover allows only frequencies below its setting to get through which is good in the case of some subwoofers. A High-Pass(HP) filter allows frequencies above its setting to pass through, this is normally used on speakers.

When a crossover is set to FULL it means no filtering is added and the full frequency spectrum is allowed through the amplifier. Filtering is important because feeding a speaker frequencies it cannot reproduce effectively creates distortion.

Low-pass (LP)
Low-Pass Crossover Frequency
The low-pass crossover frequency is typically used for subwoofers. It can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable low-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies below the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies above the set point gently or harshly roll-off, depending on the steepness of the slope.

The steepness of the roll-off slope is measured in dB/octave and refers to the rate of attenuation (lowering of volume) outside their pass bands.

35 - 250 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
28 Hz
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
100 dB
Bass Boost
The objective of the bass boost is to get more kick out of your subwoofer. It is a circuit that emphasizes the lower frequencies at a given point. The bass boost should always be set first before setting the gain. This feature is known for destroying subwoofers and is commonly used incorrectly, so be cautious.
0 - 18 dB
Bass/Gain Remote
If the amp comes with a bass/gain remote you will be able to control the level of your bass from your dashboard. Typically bass remotes also include a 16-20 ft. wire for installation.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
Fan Cooled
A great feature to have if an amp generates a large amount of heat. Cooling fans can help regulate the temperature to prevent the amp from overheating (burning).
No
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
200A x 1 
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

Worth The Money..

July 22, 2011

Worth the money. It hits my new 2000watt 15in solo-baric L7 kicker hard no joke rattles my house windows and rear view mirror and my chest feels like some one is on top of it every time it hits that low note i just love it and thats nothing you can also hear my sub half a mile away. And the amp stays cool its asking for u to punish it hard so i do i crank the radio more and more, the amp just dont give up.. It say 1500watts on the box and amp but it gives you a whole lot more then what it says. Just be carefull with your ear drums you might go deaf. You have to buy it your self just to believe it. You can read my other review it has a whole lot more detail then this one just go to kicker products and go to the solo-baric L7 15in subs and see my review.. O and Sonic Electronix is the place to buy cheaper then every body else on the web just go and see to believe it.

This amp is amazing!!

March 4, 2011

I bought this amp to replace a used Hifonics amp and not one but two returned brand new Hifonics amps!! I got this amp and my birthsheet says 1900rms at 1 ohm. I have it running 2 15" Kicker L7's and it pounds the crap out of them. I'm looking to buy another so I have an amp for each sub and dont have to overwork the amp.. Overall a very good amp and worth every penny

BEST AMP I HAVE EVER BAUGHT!

August 26, 2010

I just bought this amp and when I put it in my 300C, the gain was all the way down and my back window was flexing. I have it hooked up to 2 Kicker L7 SoloBaric 15s and its made for those subs. It never gets hot, and have 1900 RMS power at 1 ohm on the birth sheet. This amp is amazing and if you have the money, GET IT

May 7, 2014

I used this amp on two T1 subs, and it performs without any flaws. The amp has plenty of control over the subs. I am running it at a one ohm load and it gets a little warm, but no need to worry the tech I spoke to at Rockford said "You can expect that if you run it at a one ohm load." The amp is in a Nissan Versa mounted to the rear passenger floor pan. If this is the amount of power you need I highly suggest you make a purchase and have the same smile on your face as I do right now just thinking about the next time I will be able to hear that low rumble. One last thing, please get the PEQ bass remote, it does come in handy.

January 13, 2014

I bought this amp a year ago and have been beating it like a red headed step child and it keeps on pumping bass! Never ever cut out once. I'm powering 2 '12' JLW7ae series and my dash wants to jump out the window. RF never has to make any sub amps again these are perfect internally, the 1500db and 2500db are boss! Better than any amp,gives you more power,decent price,great sound. My ONLY complaint is the crossover and gain controls aren't real easy to see. Get the bass knob it's very important. Don't ask or think anymore,just buy this amp. Your going to need a big current system,battery and alt cuz this puppy can pull some current. Feed this monster correctly and you will be deaf!

This is definitely the most powerful amp I have ever owned. This is money well-spent; it will push your subs harder than you would believe -- just be careful because they can blow with this amp..;) Don't be fooled by other "cheaper" amps, this amp is worth a little extra. Rockford Fosgate has always been one of my favorites, and they didn't let me down with this powerhouse.
