Question about Rockford Fosgate Power 1500.1BD Car Audio Amplifier
Amp was working fine but had drained the battery over a weekend and a burnt smell. the amp has a burnt mosfet and no other visible damage. I am unsure if this is the only problem and how to check for other faulty components. Any advise would be appreciated. I run the amp at 2ohm but plan to go 1ohm when repaired
The cap will help but If you can take the alternator off and take it to a rebuilder they can build you an alternator that puts out more amps which is a great for multiple amps to charge the battery faster and will give you more sound! More power to amp more watts and clearer sound!

Fosgate's get very hot.My first amp was a fosgate and I freaked out because it got really really hot. And smelled bad. So I moved it so where it could get more air That should help you out a lot and the smell went away on its own. As for your battery dying. Basically your stressing out your battery and your alternator is having a hard time keeping the battery changed. I'm sure you see your light dim when a low bass note hits. Invest in a cap. This will help save your battery your alternator and should even sound better.
