I have a 500 mono. it al of a sudden is shutting off when the bass hits. the green light will flikker and go out but then come back on untill the bass hits again. thoughts?


Yes. It sounds like overmodulation, but you did not specify the volume at which the issue appears. usually loud. Check the speaker for correct ohms resistance, if not correct yoru amp will overload and thermally break the circuit, then reset...

I can think of ten things, nine of them are a bad amp.

My amp turns on but once you turn the volume up it shuts off


What is happening is an overload situation. If you can use either left or right (white or red) RCA inputs but not both, then the amp is overloading and getting hot internally and probably getting ready to die. You'll need someone to fix the final drivers in the amp.
Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!

Rockford Fosgate 501bd question


that amp should work fine with those speakers,just make sure that they(speakers)are wired for 2 ohms.at 500-600watts coming from amp, you should be getting 250-300 watts per speaker,just dont crank your gain too high on the amp.
