I have the amp hooked up with 2 12'' DVC T2 or T4 Eclipse Subwoofers, sorry not specific. I am runnig the system with a pioneer DEH-P80MP. I don't know how to trouble shoot and not familiar enough with the area to send it to someone yet. Please help!!!

Hello jason_dil,
Having 1 channel go out is a common problem with audio systems. Unfortunately, since it can be caused by faults in the wiring, head unit, amp, or the speakers themselves, it is tedious to troubleshoot. Being tedious doesn't mean that it is difficult. You can do it with a little planning and organization.
Here's a link to which has pages and pages of step-by-step troubleshooting. I recommend that you read up just a little and print out any of the guides you need.

What you want to do is eliminate what ISN'T causing the problem and isolate what is.

1) First, do a physical check of all the wiring. Make sure all connections are secure and tight and that there are no obvious cuts, tears, or breaks in the insulation. Check all fuses. Either replace them with known good fuses or remove and check with a meter. Check RCA's plugs on both ends. Remove and reseat each plug. Make sure the pin is not broken off inside.
2) Move on to the defective sub and it's wiring: See if it works on the other channel.
3) Check the head unit output: Reverse the channels of the RCA's and see if the problem switches to the other sub.
4) If everything checks out in 1-3 above, you've isolated the problem to the amp itself. It probably has a faulty component and will need to be repaired or replaced.
Hope this helps. If it does, please rate as "FixYa". Thanks!

I have a old 2001 rockford fosgate 2 channel p5002 model in great condition just need to know how many watts is it and which subwoofers are compatible to this amp? thanks

Your amp is rated at 500 watts. Here is the break down of your wattage.

125x2 at 4 ohms
250x2 at 2 ohms
500x1 at bridged 4 ohms

When hooking up the amp make sure to use 4 gauge power and ground wire.

How do I hook up one sub to my rockford fosgate p3001 amp

Hey i have looked over many rockford manuals,(i own a 300.1 my buddy owns a 325.1) and for there mono(.1) amps there hooked together on the inside so channel A+ and B + are cencted on the inside the amp. So you ither hook one 2ohm sub to channel A or you can hook 1 4ohm subs to channel A and 1 4ohm sub to channel B. There 2ohm stable so any lower will eventualy burn the amp out.

Amp fuses blowing and amp overheat

Does the amp heat up if you power it up with no speaker wires connected to the amplifier's speaker terminals?

I have a rockford fosgate p250.2 amp hooked up to two 12' subs but the amp is not powering on... instead the protect light is on and im not sure if its because its so cold outside... please help and thank...

Remove the load from the amplifier (subs) and the RCAs
If the light stays on, there are internal problems with the amplifier, and it needs to be serviced.
If the amplifier works normally, attach the RCA's and power on again.
If it remains on, connect one sub, and then the other.
Your amplifier is a 2 channel amplifier rated at
60 Watt - 4 Ohm - 2 channel(s)
125 Watt - 2 Ohm - 2 channel(s)
250 Watt - 4 Ohm - 1 channel(s)
Your amplifier is not rated for a 2 ohm mono load.
If you have Single voicecoil subs wired in parallel, you have a 2 ohm mono load - your amplifier will eventually fail.

Quick question, amp problem

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