Question about Rockford Fosgate Power 1000BD Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Amp overheating My Rockford Fosgate amp overheats all the time. If my car sits in the sun for any period of time, it will not work until it cools down. I had my amp mounted to the back of my sub box, but now it is to the side of the box. I thought this may give it more air; however, it did not work. It will even overheat during winter if I turn my stereo up. Does this sound like it is only overheating, or is there another problem? Should I mount the amp somewhere else?

Re: Amp overheating

You could just have a simple idling bias or dc balance alighnment thats needs attention. Always take care of the smaller problems before they grow as this problem could grow to where it pops your outputs , your speakers or the drivers. Try this before sending it in. 480-967-3565 Good Luck

I have a rockford fosgate punch P325.1 subwoofer mono amp that blows a fuse every time i start the car. I have a second pioneer amp but that works with no problems. How can i fix this?

Is it the correct size fuse ? Is it the power fuse or remote ? Either way check your connections going into the amp . Try this hook your other amp to the set of wires for the rockford if that amp has a problem its a wireing problem if not chances are its an interal problem on the rockford . Hope this helps !

I need parts for an amp

Its a shame that you dont have the covers for this awesome amp. You can run amps without the covers but if metal crosses any conductors your screwed. If you try emailing Rockford they might be able to help( I am cheap and would either buy one that doesn't work and use covers or make a box to bolt amp into. If you build a little box make sure to vent it so the amp can cool.

P3001 problem

if amp is mounted to back of the box try and move to in front of box near subs or port. the air movement of the sub will help keep the amp cooled. or you can orer some 12v cooling fans and take back plate of the amp and cool it that way. or you can buy higher quality audio, your choice

I have a rockford fosgate x7 amp and the fan stop working and a little while after playing it shut off what do you think

replace the fan in the amp, sounds like the amp is overheating and the cut off is kicking in... you can try the amp while not driving and the car parked, put a fan, like a desk fan where the amp is so it flows over the amp fins, and run the amp turn it up and let it work, see if it still shuts off after that, if so then it could be something internal nut sounds like it is the fan to me... and i have worked with many an amp and system in cars and trucks... hope this helps you

Rockford fosgate punch 700s gets very hot

Disconnect the speaker wires from speaker terminals on the amp and turn the amp on (turn the head unit on). Set the volume to zero on the head unit.

Does the amp get hot?

If it does, either the bias is set to high or the amp has other problems. If it does not, you may have the speakers wired to the wrong ohm load.

Quick question, amp problem

make sure you ground wires arent shared, meaning run each ground wire from each amp to its own grounding point
