Question about Rockford Fosgate Punch P8002 Car Audio Amplifier
I previously had this problem and i just had to move my RCA's and it fixed the problem for a while. But now nothing helps it. I tested the sub on a different amp and it worked fine. and tested the amp in another car with a different CD deck and it still dont work. I believe it is the RCA jacks on the amp itself. but i am not sure. Any ideas on what it is and how to fix it?

Ok.. Bridge the two sub into 4ohm than bridge to amp.
So. this how it goes.
sub1 + -
to | |
sub2 - +
amp (L) - + (R)- +
This will use the full potiental of RF 800a2 amp. I believe it like 1153 watts max out.

The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.

Watts delivered is a function of the voltage times the current. If the amp was 100 percent efficient, it would need 33 amps at 12V for 400 watts. At 14.4V, it would only need 28 amps. Of course, amplifiers are NOT 100 percent efficient, only about 50-60 percent in many cases, but somewhat higher for monoblocks, maybe 80-90 percent. So you're looking at a fuse in the 60-80A range. In the absense of a specific fuse size from the manufacturer, I'd start the primary fuse at a 60A and if the amp blows it on power up/immediately/frequently, move up to an 80A.
All of the Rockford-Fosgate 2-channel bridgeables I've ever seen show using the left positive (+) and the right negative (-) for bridging. But if it's not shown right on the amp, I'd call or email RF for the correct connection. The new amps do show it.
Hope this helps.
