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.

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.
Prime (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.

D
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.

1200 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.
1.0%
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)
Subsonic
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.

50 - 250 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
15 - 40 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/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.
Yes
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.
100A In-Line Fuse Required
Strappable
Some amplifiers can be "strapped" together in order to increase the output of a single audio channel. These amplifiers feature RCA preamp outputs, allowing you to pass the signal directly from one amp to the other to ensure consistency.
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.

Yes
Sonic Certified Amplifier
Sonic Certified amplifiers have been tested by the experts at Sonic Electronix to meet or exceed the wattage ratings provided by the manufacturer. If this is marked as Yes, then you can trust the wattage ratings. If marked as No, then we have tested the amplifier and it did not meet the advertised wattage ratings. If marked as Not Tested, then the Sonic Electronix experts have not yet been able to test the amp.

Amazing Amp

November 14, 2014

This amp is an absolute monster at putting out wattage! I was surprised with how small this thing is too especially since it puts out so much! The only problem I had with this amp was that the description says it fits 0 gauge although there is no way that it fits 0 gauge, I had to buy special adapters to compensate for this although not a big deal in the long run!

Excellent amp for the price

September 15, 2014

I have this amp pushing 2 Kenwood shallow mount 12-inch subs in my truck. The birth sheet on mine said 1300 watts even, and I have no doubt it puts out that much power. I also have a Prime 400-4D running my Kenwood components in the doors. Maybe they don't have some of the ultra-cool, competition-level amp features found on more expensive amps, but that's not what I bought them for. I like how this amp sounds, and I don't intend to enter any sound competitions anyway. I can't even turn the system all the way up and stay in the truck; that's how loud it is. And even in 95-degree Florida Panhandle weather, neither of my Prime amps get very warm. I would definitely recommend this unit for anyone wanting to add some serious power to their system without having to spend large sums of cash.

Works Amazingly

May 26, 2014

This amp blew me away. I replaced my POS kenwood kac-9105d amp with this and the difference was night and day. I've owned the amp for 6 months had have had no problems with it. It never overheats, even in the 90+ degree heat. My only complaint is hooking up the power and ground cables. 1. The power is on the right when it is traditionally on the left. I almost blew the fuses the first time I hooked it up and since the fuses are internal, I would've had a completely dead amp. My friend did this with his amp and he had to buy a whole new amp. And 2. Fosgate recommends 2-gauge power and ground cable for this amp but I can just BARELY fit my 4-gauge wire into it. It takes me forever to get the power cable in correctly. Not to mention i have the amp mounted on the back of my sub box out of sight, and the terminals are faced inward towards the box! How stupid is that? So not only is it nearly impossible to fit 4-guage wire into it, but you can't see what the hell you're doing either. And they made all their amps like this! Honestly, they could have done things better and made things a lot simpler.

lots of power for the price

February 2, 2014

My birth sheet said 1,313 watts at 1 ohm. Can't really beat that for the price. Small amp with a lot of power. I recommend upgrading your battery though. My lights dim a lot on my stock battery. It accepts 4 gauge wire but I would recommend running 1 gauge wire to the trunk then use a 1 gauge to 4 gauge distribution block so you will only have about 1 or 2 feet of 4 gauge for more juice to the amp. It does not have a built-in fuse so you need to buy a fuse holder.

This is a very powerful amp in a very small package. I paired it with two Rockford Fosgate P3's in a bandpass box. I would definitely recommend it for those wanting the most for their money.

I only have one complaint...the website states that this amp accepts a 0/1 gauge wire for power, but it doesn't. 4 AWG is the largest size that will fit.

Overall it is an excellent product at a very low price.

Rockford Fosgate R1200

May 9, 2013

I bought this amp to power two JL Audio 12w6's as a cheap alternative thinking that I would buy a bigger and better amp later when the money presented itself. After having this amp for a few months I think I'll just stick with it. This amp makes mucho power! I thought that my two 12's would only be at about half power but I'd have to say they're probably at about 75% power each which is way more than enough to make my face vibrate. For the money, you can't buy a better amp, props to Rockford Fosgate. Only downside is the tones aren't super super clear compared to the JL 1200HD amp that my friend had on the subs before I bought them from him. He also had a cleansweep on them too though which makes a noticeable difference so that probably has something to do with it but I definitely still give the amp a 4 out of 5.

Bought this amp to push two 12" P3 subs. I used the SMD DD1 to properly set the gains on the amp and it pounds the p3's wired at 1ohm. The amp is well worth the money. My only concern with this amp is the terminals face down, sometimes making it difficult to ensure the wires are in the amp properly; other than that this amp is beast.

Best amp in class

May 8, 2013

I LOVE this amp. I bought it almost two years ago, and have never had problems with it since -- and it still runs perfect and absolutely demolishes my 2 MTX 7500s. It's rated at 1377w as opposed to the labeled 1200w. Rockford DOES NOT overrate like other companies. When you buy from them, it may be a little pricey, but there's no doubt you get exactly what you pay for and even more.

Rockford is by far my favorite line of audio products. I'll be buying another one of these so I have two to push the two T2 15's I'm going to be buying.

After 6 months I'm happy with this every day. It can deliver without a problem, and the "remote punch" lets you adjust the level on the fly--couldn't live without that now. To make it happy, I upgraded my alternator and battery and added a capacitor, ran a two gauge cable to split into fours (for this and the P400), threw in ANL fuses, and now I'm happy. Real happy.

Great amp.

September 17, 2013

I run this amp at 1ohm on stock electrical in a Chevy sonic. It pushes my sub very well and never gets hot. With a combo of this amp and my sub in a 2.6 cubic foot box tuned to 36hz I was able to put up a Term lab score of 140.1db sealed on the dash at 38hz. Also when it comes to rock and country music it produces amazing sound quality.

Best amp I've had so far!

December 21, 2012

I would recommend this to anyone looking for these specs. I hooked this amp up to 2 12" Alpine type Rs wired at 1ohm and this amp pounds them. This amp will take abuse! I've had it running at full power for 1-2 hours at a time before. Amp only gets warm! U can put ur face on it,it never gets hot. You can't go wrong with this amp. Rockford has outdone themselves!

I would definitely recommed this amp. It's small cheap and very powerful. I'm running this on a pair of Rockford Fosgate T0 12s in a 2ohm load pushn them pretty good. Def not over pushing them but for the money you can't beat it!!

I will say that this is a strong amp that sounds really clean but, it doesn't pair with just any sub-woofer. I have an Alpine SWR 12D2 and it is not enough power. I thought that moving up to Fosgate would be a rewarding investment and instead it was an expensive experiment. I can run the amp at more than 4-5 gain or the protection shuts if off. I have a larger sub-brand amp that can do what this RF can do, all day, and never shut off.

So here is why this pairing doesn't work. (I really really wish that it was enough) Fosgate sub-woofers and most other sub-woofers are designed to function at half of the peak power is rms. (I.e. 250rms/500peak, 500rms/1,000peak. 1:2 ratio) The Alpine I use runs at 1,000rms/3,000peak (1:3 ratio). The rms is perfect matched but when the sub is finally pumping, as it is designed to, the amp isn't stable enough and immediately shuts down in protection.

I'm running an XS 3400D car battery with a Tsunami 2 farad capacitor. I have OFC 1 gauge wires and everything is perfect, until I tried to change my amp to RF. I use my old amp and I guess do not fix what isn't broken. Pair this with a lower power demanding peak sub-woofer and you will like it. It is a seriously strong amp just not with my pairing.

After shopping around, everybody recommended Sonic Electronics for price and quality. Never bought anything on line before. It went great! Don't go to Best Buy! They cost double! The whole delivery went smooth!
