Question about Rockford Fosgate Power 1001BD Car Audio Amplifier

Old rockford fosgate power 1001bd

I recently had a car audio place tell me that the RF Power 1001BD only pours out 1-200 watts RMS.

i have 2 JL 12w3v4 running at 2 ohms 300 rms per sub. i didnt believe him because i think he was trying to make a sell so i could get a JL 500/1v2, but i did notice that the gain on my RF Power 1001BD is probably 3/4 of the way up...and suggestions?

Rockford fosgate 800 a2 amp power?

Hello desperate2le,

Watts delivered is a function of the voltage times the current. If the amp was 100 percent efficient, it would need 33 amps at 12V for 400 watts. At 14.4V, it would only need 28 amps. Of course, amplifiers are NOT 100 percent efficient, only about 50-60 percent in many cases, but somewhat higher for monoblocks, maybe 80-90 percent. So you're looking at a fuse in the 60-80A range. In the absense of a specific fuse size from the manufacturer, I'd start the primary fuse at a 60A and if the amp blows it on power up/immediately/frequently, move up to an 80A.

All of the Rockford-Fosgate 2-channel bridgeables I've ever seen show using the left positive (+) and the right negative (-) for bridging. But if it's not shown right on the amp, I'd call or email RF for the correct connection. The new amps do show it.

Hope this helps.

Rockford 1001bd blowing fuses...

It sounds like you've got a short to ground in either your power line or internally in your amp. Either that or the fuse on your amp (usually right on the side) might be blown. Check your power line and make sure that your amp isn't screwed directly to any metal parts of your car, as some amps will short like this. If there's nothing wrong with the power line, send it in for warranty or bring it to your local audio store to have them check it. If you feel comfortable with trying to fix it yourself, then take it apart but be advised that internal screws usually have a glued spot so they can tell if you've disassembled it.
