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.

150 watts x 1 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.

300 watts x 1 channels
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.

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 (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.

500 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.
Optional (Requires Accessory Adapter)
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.
Switchable Off/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.
80A Fuse Recommended, Not Included
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.

P500-1bd

September 23, 2013

I put this amp in my daughters 2003 Mustang and paired it with a P3 12 inch sub in a ported box. The two work great together. Set-up was no problem on the amp. She has had no problem with it at all, but remember she also gave everything time to break-in. Birth sheet read 286 watts @ 4 ohms, 471 watts @ 2 ohms, and 745 watts @ 1 ohm. I wired the sub at a 2 ohm load by-the-way. So the amp is running at a comfortable ohm load. I would suggest anyone get the PLC 2 remote control for the amp. My daughter loves the remote, but so do I.

awesome amp

November 21, 2014

Everyone says Rockford isn't any good since the started manufacturing overseas, but the thing is, so did everyone else pretty much. I bought this amp to run one 2 0hm dvc ten because it was pretty close to ideal rms at 1 0hm..... just a little under. But the amp was actually about 300 watts more than the 500 it was suppised to be at 798 watts @ 1 ohm. The setup was super easy. Their clipping indicator light was spot on against an oscilloscope. Rockford makes good stuff and always has. This amp sounds great runs cool and makes a lot of power for its rating. How can you talk trash about that? It does more than it says and that says it all!

Rockford - Nuff Said

November 20, 2015

Wow.. Words can not express how great this amp is. With a birth sheet of 787 watts RMS, it complements the Rockford P3D2. I have mine wired to 1ohm and it blows my doors off! A must have, I do recommend the PLC2 to adjust the madness

This amp fits a Rockford fosgate P3 12 Woofer. This is also the amp Rockford fosgate told me to get that would match.
Ryan K on Feb 27, 2016
I got this amp hooked up to one 12 inch P3 at 1 ohm and its a perfect match. I've had a JL W6 setup in the past but this is better hands down! the birth certificate on this was 734 watts rms!! way above 500 and now I can upgrade to the T0 if i wanted to Rockford Fosgate just won a new customer long term.

Best Answer: Hello,

Unfortunately, the answers provided thus far are a bit inaccurate. One P2D2-8 will be wired up to 4ohms or down to 1ohm. Which means the amplifier you choose much provide ~250w RMS @4ohms or @1ohm. The Rockford Fosgate Punch P500X1BD, however, provides too much power at @1ohm and not enough @4ohms. The intended match is the Rockford Fosgate Punch P400X1. http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_67772_Rockford-Fosgate-Punch-P400X1.html

Is this amp stable at 1 ohm load and is it good for Fosgate's P3-1X12 loaded enclosure?

Best Answer: Hi Greg,

Yes, the amplifier is 1ohm stable - this is implied by the fact that it has a 1ohm power rating (in the description). And yes, it is a "good" amp for the P3-1X12, this is why it is recommended in the description of the P3-1X12.

is this amp good choice for my P2D4-10 sub?
Kirk T on Oct 4, 2015
Best Answer: I had this amp on 2 12" versions of the sub you have and they both got every bit of power they could handle. These amps are highly underrated so be careful if your only running 1 10" P2. I sudgest going down one step in amp size or at least getting anotger matching P2

Is this amplifier enough for 4- TS-W3003D4 subwoofers?

Best Answer: Hi Chad,

Absolutely not.

http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_74610_Pioneer-TS-W3003D4.html

Four Pioneer TS-W3003D4 have a recommended power range of 1200 - 2400 watts RMS, probably at 2ohms, as that load is the most feasible. Obviously the Rockford Fosgate P500X1BD is only providing ~300w RMS @ 2ohms, no where close to what you require. Two P500X1BD - one for each pair of subs - would do a decent job of driving the subs, but would still not be close to the potential of the drivers.

With that said, you seek an amplifier providing ~1200 - 2400 watts RMS @ 2ohms. (This is all assuming you seek ONE amplifier to drive all four subwoofers.)
