Re: need tool for amp

Some of the amps used tamper-resistant socket head cap screws. You can buy the nex bits from Try page 2753.

There are no fuses in it. Are you going to try to repair it yourself?

Can a rf 201s amp push 4-6x9s and 4-104s door speakers

Hello jon_jonmay,

Wiring 4 speakers to each of 2 channels, you will need to wire them series-parallel and run them at 4 ohms. If you wire all 4 parallel, the load will be 1 ohm and the amp is only stable down to 2 ohms.

According to your manual, the 201s will deliver 50 watts into each channel at 4 ohms . So it will be supplying about 12.5 watts per speaker which is about what you get with the average factory radio. They will work OK, but they're not going to be very loud.

Hope this helps.

Punch 40dsm wont power up

There is no reset button, if you've confirmed that you have a good ground and sufficient voltage on the B+ and remote terminals, the ampifier is in need of repair.

If you're interested in troubleshooting/repairing it yourself, read through the following page to familiarize yourself with the inner workings of an amplifier.

Basic Amplifier Repair Tutorial

A common problem on these amps is broken connections on the remote turn-on connector lug. If it's loose in the board, that would be the first thing you'd need to repair.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

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
