Amp fuses blowing and amp overheat

I've had this rockford fosgate amp p5002 hooked up about two weeks and it would work for about 5 minutes then cut off and go into thermal mode. then the other day i turned on my car and there was no beat. found out the fuses on the back of the amp blew. now i tried hooking up a bigger ground wire, which i thought would help, and both fuses on the back of the amp blew again within like 2 minutes. what's happening here?

    haven't tried that but i've noticed that the more i turn up the bass the quicker it overheats, so i'm thinking that has something to do with it.

First, check all electric your car audio system... may be it has a short connection.
If that's ok... You must check the power amp wiring.... follow the manual...
Then Check the impedance load between the amp and speaker or subs....
If this not help... you must consult the profesional car audio installer....

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

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.

Where to take my amp for repair


Contact Rockford for factory service.

If you don't want to send it to Rockford, ask the local audio shops who they use for amp repairs. If several use the same repair shop, it's probably a good place to send your amp.

Rockford amp cut out


Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect the RCAs. Replace the 30 amp fuse with a 15 amp fuse. If you turn it on and it blows the fuse, it's likely that it has shorted output transistors. If that's the case, you need to have the amp repaired.

P5002 Problem


The schematic is available from Rockford.

It's possible that the outputs have blown. They generally short from the center leg to the third leg when they fail.

Unless you have experience working with the MEHSA insulators, you may want to buy the entire MEHSA strip from Rockford. You can replace the transistors on the insulators but you have to use a torch to heat the strips.
