Back in the old school days, not every amplifier design was bridgeable.

SOURCE: "low impedance"

it is really hard on an amp to run it below recommendation or specs and most audio companies won't warranty if they catch wind. but i have not seen an amp last long or operate without cutting out when you do this.

SOURCE: kenwood kac9152d bridge mono wiring diagram

I have owned this amp for 2 years and i have it up to my kicker L5 sub, in a 3.1 cubic foot ported and chambered box that is tuned to 33hz. the amp can be wiried for eitherrunning one sub or several subs, rms power is 500 watt @ 4ohm, 900 watt @ 2ohm, and 1600 @ 1ohm. it is a strong amp, and it puts out large and powerfull amounts of energy, the bass remote is an added touch, i had it set to 100hz on the amp at +1 on the input sensativity, i ran my sub hard producing 138.40 db on a term lab. and i only had the remote at +9/+11 for level and set to 43hz on frequency boost, if you have only one sub with single 4ohm voice coil run it on the outer sides of the speaker outputs on the amp, if you have a dual or quad voice coil, you can either lower the ohms wiring the sub in a paralelle circuit, or up the ohms by wiring the sub in a series circuit. if you have 2 or more subs, wire them left and right channel, the amp has 2 out puts because it is a dual monular amplifier, meaning you can link 2 or more amps together to wire one or multiple subs, witch makes this amp perfect if you have a 180db, @ 18hz **** , than this amp is for you!!!!!! if you need more advise on the amp or how much power it needs to run it or when the amp loads into protection mode feel free to email me @ zekk68@hotmail.com

How do u bridge the rockford fosgate p325.1?


Hello... sorry you are having a problem. If you are running the 325.1, that amplifier is strictly a mono-block amplifier (1 channel) so it is not possible to bridge it. There are 2 speaker connections on the amp but both positives and negatives are connected on the circuit board in the amp. Hope this helps. Good luck with your venture.

Amp shut off has power and grond and remot but only my p550 shut off fuses are ok and all other amps are wourking


how many subs are you running on this amp, and how many ohms are they. if the are bridged, try hooking up stereo and see if the problem still occurs. make sure your scrape off all the paint where the amp is grounded to the frame which should be less than a few feet. i'd also recommend running at least a 4ga wire for both your power and ground.

I have a rockford fosgate 550 that the fuse blows


Short inside one of the transistors. This requires very good soldring skills and electrical know-how, and some thermal paste to go between the heat-sink and the transistor. Unfortunatly this is not a cheap repair, probably cost around 100 dollars.

Cheers,

Kevin

What amp do i need to power a Polk Audio db1040DVCin brigded connection, i only plan to run one sub, i want to bridge the sub for better sound quality, and i'm buying straight polk, what do i need


Hello oran1891,

OK, you don't bridge subs. You bridge amps, if they are capable of being bridged (not all are).

Bridging is a method of connecting the channels of a multi-channel amp in such a way that the amp delivers the output of 2 stereo channels into a single mono load.

The Polk DB1040DVC is a sub with dual 4ohm voice coils. You can wire the voice coils to present a final 2ohm load (parallel) or a final 8ohm load (series). The rated power range is 50-270 watts RMS. Since you can parallel the voice coils and have them present a 2ohm load to the amp, you are looking for an amp that provides a minimum of 50 and a maximum of 270 (round it up to 300) watts into a 2ohm load. The Rockford-Fosgate Punch 300.1 shown here for $170 seems tailor made for your Sub. If you can make do with less power and want to spend a little less money, the Orion Cobalt CO500.1 will deliver 250 watts RMS at 2ohms and you can buy it for $140. The punch is a better deal. If you decide to add another sub later, it will power them both with 150 watts each, a little low, but still decent. If you want a 2-channel bridgeable amp, I'd recommend the Kicker 08DX3002 shown here for $200. Note that in bridged mode, it is not stable at 2ohms, only down to 4ohms.

Hope this helps.

Rockford fostgate p500-2 amp overheating pls help!


Your Amplifier:
125W x 2 @ 4-Ohms RMS
250W x 2 @ 2-Ohms RMS
500W x 1 @ 4-Ohms bridged RMS

Your Subwoofers = Dual 4 ohm
Possible wiring configurations of (2) Dual 4 ohm voicecoil subwoofers are:

2 ohm Stereo
1 ohm mono
4 ohm mono


That amplifier is not 1 ohm mono stable.

You need to put a 4 ohm load on the "bridged" terminals of the amplifier

Your best wiring configuration is going to be Series-parallel.

CLICK HERE to see the pic Larger

4721108.jpg You can also get the same result (power) by having the subs wired in parallel independently. Put both + on one sub to one + on the amplifier and both - on one sub to the - of the same channel of the amplifier.
Repeat for channel 2.
This will be a 2 ohm stereo load.
You should only use this method if the subwoofers are in seperate enclosures... not one big cavity.

How to bridge a punch 3001 car amp


You can't bridge this amp as it is a mono single channel amp. 2 ohms is the lowest load that can be applied for 300WRMS.

Rockford Punch HE2 wiring question.


if your sub will handle it, bridging it will give you more power. The best thing to do is to find out how much power the amp puts out ( RMS ) and if it is in your power handling range bridge it. It sounds better and gives you a harder punch because of more power.

No power


hi, some car amps need a high current remote supply to turn on. first make sure that you are using the proper gauge b+ and gnd cable for this particular rockford amp. then try switching the remtote turn on to this amp thru a simple Relay.(use the remote supply from your headunit as a trigger for the relay). do these connections without connecting any spks or rca line inputs. once amp is switching on then connect all other cables. OR lastly check the main fuse on the RF amp?? cheers
