To achieve higher efficiency with lower distortion, Rockford's BR topology combines, Cycle-by-Cycle, an indirectly coupled high/low voltage rail linear topology with a switched high/low voltage linear rail topology. This combination yields an unsurpassed power density (watts per cubic inch). In addition, this patented technology allows the chassis design to be much smaller than traditional sized amplifier - 1.53" x 4.25" x 8.2" - making this amp a great solution for smaller stealth installations, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. In fact, now, with the introduction of the Rockford Fosgate RFKHD9813, installing the PBR500X1 into select 1998 - 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycles has never been easier. With unparalleled technology, flexible installation options, and big power from such a small footprint Rockford Fosgate has ensured that everyone can put a little Punch in any system.
The Punch EQ on-board equalization circuit helps correct the acoustical deficiencies often found in car audio systems. These deficiencies were researched and graphed out by none other than Jim Fosgate himself. From that forward thinking approach, we now have the Punch EQ2. When accompanied by the Optional Remote Punch EQ, the user has full control of a variable bass boost centered at 45 Hz.
MEHSA3 is a proprietary process that yields up to five times better heat transfer than traditional FET mounting techniques, using the exact same components. A multi-layer insulated metal substrate operating with minimal thermal resistance spreads heat both downward & outward to quickly dissipate heat from each device across the heatsink. This process allows Rockford Fosgate to squeeze more watts per cubic inch from every output device as well as provide consistent thermal stability. The higher power handling results in a 20% reduction in thermal impedance.
An industry-leading manufacturing process, DSM utilizes high-speed robotics, high-quality 1% tight-tolerance parts and large board traces. The discrete components are laser etched to meet a particular value and a very low tolerance. This lower tolerance improves the efficiency of the circuit, decreases cross-talk from other discrete components and lowers operating temperature. These superior components are used by aerospace, automotive, and cellular manufacturers.

Good amp, bad experience
I purchased the Rockford Fosgate PBR500X1 in november of 2013. It functioned properly with the Rockford Fosgate P3S-1X12 subwoofer for about 1 month, then it began to mysteriously shut off. Now, this amp was recommended by SonicElectronix on the bio of the subwoofer, but come to find out that the subwoofer was not correctly cooling itself or letting the amp cool down either. All wiring was done in recommended 10 gauge with 35A fuse with the Kicker amp kit I purchased as well. I am now in the market for the Rockford Fosgate R500X1D amplifier to not run at 1 ohms but at 4 ohms to help cooling with it not only being D class but at a lower wattage for the subwoofer to still kick but to stay cool. Overall, good amp, just I don't believe that class BR is good for any sub over 8-10".
Killer amp, super small form factor
This amp is an amazing performer. Birth sheet says it puts out almost 600watts rms at 1ohm. It definitely pulls current. Pushes my kicker L7 at 1ohm and does not drop out. It does run hot at 1ohm, so you might need cooling. Because of the heat, I question it's durability.
This Amp Really makes my subs knock! (2-12's) Amazing for its size. been running it in my truck for @ two years and not one single issue! does feel hot to the touch after running for a while on hot days. But I'm absolutely positive Fosgate would have put a fan on it if it needed it.
you will not be disappointed!
