Question about Rockford Fosgate P6001BD Car Audio Amplifier
I recently acquired a Rockford Fosgate P6001BD in a trade for a couple subs with a guy. He, of course, took off before I had it hooked up (doh!). When I did get it connected to my 2004 model Alpint Type-R subwoofers, the RF logo/power light lit up just fine, but there was no power going to the subs. I have hooked the subs up to a previous amp with the same wiring (6awg kit) before and they worked fine so I know that isn't the problem. I even took one out of the enclosure, and connected it wired to 4ohm and 2ohm to no avail. I have taken apart the amp to check the guts for soot, burns, etc and found nothing. I will be the speaker outputs with a voltage meter tomorrow, but, for now, does anyone have any suggestions of what to try?

Is the amp being fed directly from the head unit's RCA preamp outputs or is it being fed by another amp's preamp outputs? Try temporarily wiring up a speaker you know is good in place of the sub and see if anything changes.

Ok.. Bridge the two sub into 4ohm than bridge to amp.
So. this how it goes.
sub1 + -
to | |
sub2 - +
amp (L) - + (R)- +
This will use the full potiental of RF 800a2 amp. I believe it like 1153 watts max out.

Send me your email account and i will draw you a diagram and send it to you there. I will need to know if the ohms of each sub as well as the amp. I'll also need to know if the subs come with one or two voice coils.

If your alternator and battery are in good condition, you probably don't need a capacitor. At maximum output, the 801S will need to draw a little over 30 amps at 12.8V. The specifications call for 8-gauge power and ground wiring and a 40A primary fuse. The Vibe's electrical system should be able to handle it OK.
Hope this helps.

Hi my names Josh. I see you want put your rockford amp in. Assuming you have your factory radio you have some wiring to do. But first you need and amp kit it wil have the necessary wiring you will need in it to wire your amp to your car. You will also need a line level converter they you can pick on up at best buy other wise known as a pac converter. This will alow you to transfer the high level frenquency your radio puts out to a low level frenquency to go strait to your amp through a pair of RCA's thus giving you sound to your amp and then to the sub. Your wiring will consist of the ground which you will have to ground off the vehicles chasis no more than a foot from your amps designated location. Then you have you power 12v which is about a 4 gauge wire and will be fuzed and ran strait to the positive side of your battery and last will be your remote wire. Your amp will have a place marked remote on it that is strickly for you to wire to your radio/ignition source for powering the amp up when radio is on and powering it down when it is off. YOU MUST ISOLATE THAT WIRE with a 12 volt tester it will be the wire that is tied in to your radio to power only when your igniton is on and when you turn your key it should tell you if you know how to properly check for this wire. wants you istolate this wire you will want to tie into to it and then of coarse run it and tie it into your amps remote power again it will be marked remote on your amp. From there all you have left is tying in your line level convererter.. This takes some patience as you must make sure that you do isolate your sound left and right postive and negetive front and rear channels the line level converter will tie into either your front or rear channel but caution you dont get them mixed or you will not have a signal at all. Again my names Josh and i hope you are able to get it hooked up okay.
