Rockford Fosgate TM500X1br

Power TM500X1br - 500 Watt Class-BR Ultra-compact Mono Amplifier

The Power TM500X1br 500 Watt mono ultra-compact amplifier is built on Rockford Fosgate’s successful launch of the Mobile audio version of the Power Series amplifiers. Due to their flexibility, small footprint and high-end performance they were being used for motorcycles, UTVs and boat systems. Because of this, Rockford Fosgate engineers set out to create a version that was geared more toward a life in the elements - in comes the Element Ready series of Power amplifiers. The TM500X1br is loaded with Rockford Fosgate's patented Boosted Rail technology that sips current while retaining a storage reserve for extended bursts of power. The amplifier features very flexible vehicle integration through low-level and high-level inputs with auto turn-on. Top mounted controls allow easy access to built-in crossover and C.L.E.A.N. input/output clip detection circuits. The 3-stage thermal lock extrusion with dual fan forced induction keeps everything cool while real-time thermal/protection schemes safeguard the amplifier. In addition, a brushed aluminum chassis with UV inhibitors added to the finish and a Marine grade two-part epoxy coating on the circuit boards ensures that you will continue enjoying your system while enduring even the most extreme of elements.




2-part Epoxy Coating

Beat the Elements

Extruded aluminum with UV inhibitors and 4 layer 2oz copper circuit board with 2-part epoxy coating are used for their UV radiation resistance and moisture protection. Rockford Fosgate moto-marine amplifiers not only have the capabilities you expect a Rockford amp to have, but they have been designed to stand up to the environmental conditions you are likely to subject them to. Whether out on the water, on the mud or in the back roads these amplifiers are designed to perform through Dust, UV, Corrosion and whatever beating you plan to subject them to.


CLEAN (Calibrated Level Eliminates Audible Noise)

C.L.E.A.N. Set-Up

Take the headache out of tuning and dialing in your system. Rockford Fosgate’s integrated level setting technology called CLEAN (Calibrated Level Eliminates Audible Noise), utilize simple LED indicators to identify both signal clipping from the audio source and the output level clipping to the speakers. This precise level set-up eliminates speaker damaging distortion by making sure that the system is passing through a safe clean signal. No more fumbling with meters, formulas and crunching numbers, dial in your system to the proper calibrations with ease.

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.
175 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 speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) 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. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.

Amplifier Specifications

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.
1 - Mono
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.
8 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.
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)
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
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).
Yes
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
60A X 1 In-Line Fuse Recommended
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.

Super small size

May 14, 2016

I actually purchased the T500x1br, but the whole concept is the same. This amp is amazingly small. My shoe (size 10.5) is larger than the amp. As such it can be installed absolutely anywhere. However in order to have access to all the gains and settings I have installed it into my trunk next to the sub (12inch P3) where I custom designed a small platform-type box and displayed in on the top, and hide all the wires in the box. A must to have with it is a remote bass control, where you can adjust the bass settings from the drivers seat. Being so small also has it's disadvantages; the ground, remote and power slots are super tiny, and very close to each other. I had a 2 Gauge power wire running from the battery and it was impossible to fit it in. I had to cut it to make it size 8 in order to fit in the mounts. But other than that, so far it has been behaving good. And one more thing, this thing has a large price tag...
