Power Specifications - Full Range Channels

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 speakers or subwoofers 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.

75 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power @ 2 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 speakers or subwoofers equals 2 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.

Not Specified by Manufacturer
RMS Power @ 1 ohm

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 speakers or subwoofers equals 1 ohm, 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.

Not Stable
Bridged RMS Power

Bridging refers to combining two channels on an amplifier to create one channel with double the voltage and an increased power output. A 2-channel amplifier will bridge down to 1-channel and a 4-channel amplifier can bridge to create 2-channels. An amplifier is most commonly bridged to drive a subwoofer.

Remember, once you bridge two channels down to one its final impedance will be 4 ohms unless otherwise specified. This rating lists the RMS power created once an amplifier is bridged.

Not Bridgebale
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

1000 watts x 1 channels

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.
Punch BR (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.

BR
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.
4
Total Peak Power Output
The total peak power output is measured as the wattage per channel multiplied by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

It is measured during a brief musical burst, such as a sudden drum accent. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal.

The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

1000 watts
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.

300 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.
10 AWG
Minimum Impedance Unbridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is not bridged.
4 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.
0.50%
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.
Yes
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.
No
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)
High-pass (HP)
Full (AP)
High-Pass Crossover Frequency
The high-pass crossover frequency can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable high-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies above the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies below 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.

80 Hz
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.

80 Hz
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.
No
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
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.

The PERFECT amp for your bike !!

April 28, 2014

I recently installed the RF PBR 300X4 amp, along with pair of RF M262 speakers, in the Dead Center fairing of my'02 Harley Road King. So far, the combination is exactly what I was looking for - loud and clear. Other reviews commented on the amp getting hot enough to shut down, but so far it has not been an issue. Hopefully it won't be an issue when it heats up later this summer. I made my own bracket out of aluminum flat stock to mount the amp. The PBR 300X4 was easy to hook up and the volume/tone combinations are endless. I visited several different websites and Sonic Electronix was a no brainer to buy from. Lowest prices and great technical help. A definite piece of advise is to direct wire to your source instead of using the RCA cables. The sound and volume are MUCH better. I have graded Overall and Durability at 4 only because I have only been using them for a couple weeks. Ride safe !!!!

Good strong power

March 26, 2014

Good amp for bikes just can't turn it up all the way hurts my ears. High distortion but that it due to the Harley deck that has .5thd where I'm used to like .001 THD. I am sure if Harley made a radio with low inputs it would be cleaner sound. All that said I would buy this amp again for any bike hi or low inputs as I always been fond of Fosgate

This lil rocker realy pumps!!

January 27, 2014

I AM SIMPLY AMAZED!! This lil dynamo can really pump up the volume!! So I installed this in a 2012 Pathfinder and it fits neatly under the passenger seat with lots of air space around it. I hooked it up after the stock radio out to Rockford 6x9 T1-Power in the front doors and 6.5 in the rear doors. It really drives these speakers well. I am sold on these lil buggers. I read that adequate air flow is crucial. So keep that in mind. I'll probably put a set in my 2012 Sonata soon. (Bi-amped and pumped too by Rockford.) Oh and the ability to go straight in on hi-level speaker inputs really sold me too.

Satisfied

November 14, 2013

As of now I am very satisfied with this amplifier. I placed it in the fairing of my motorcycle(Victory Cross Country) and gained a large amount of crystal clear sound. Definitely worth the money, IMO. Before I used the amp, it was hard to hear or understand the music at 60mph, not though.... I can hear perfect at 90+ with little distortion(wind will always be there). Love the 2 and 4 channel option, but even though its in my fairing wish it was a marine amp just in case.

Mixed feelings

September 17, 2013

This is hands down a superb amp for the cost. I run four 6.5 kicker speakers on it. Never distorts, gets real loud. The only thing I hate is the inputs. They are inconvenient and it's easy to pull out. Keep this in mind when you purchase this amp. Also it tends to hog all the power from my sub when I turn it up. Might need a cap to fix this. Very satisfied with the output and functionality.

Great Amp!

September 11, 2013

I just finished installing one of these amps in an '89 Porshe Carrera...wow! I still am in disbelief how this tiny amp pushed 2 sets of JBL components.. This car screamed and my customer was extremely happy with his purchase. I have been installing for over 14 years professionally and still can't believe this little amp did what it did..10 gauge wire is recommended but I managed to install it with 8 gauge... I could see the amp running hot if the wire run is long using 10 gauge. For future purchasers, buy 8 gauge wire if your run is longer than 10 ft.

Never worked

August 15, 2013

I had originally purchased this amp to have a matching system for my car. I had the amp installed into my car and about two weeks later it went into protect mode and would not come out of it. So I had sent it back and got it replaced with my warranty. After receiving my new one in the mail I had immediately installed it into my car and I got no sound what so ever. It never worked right out of the box and it felt like it was on fire. I would not recommend this amp for anything. If you need a small amp for your bike or car system I would recommend you look somewhere else rather than this product.
