Rockford P5002 not getting enough power

I have a Rockford P5002 that was in a different vehicle and am now putting in a 95 Subaru Impreza. All connections are new (bought a kit from Crutchfield) but when it powers on, the "thermal" light comes on. It was just turned on, so doubt it's overheating. I followed another post and checked the wiring coming in with a multimeter. I got about 7 volts for both the B+ and the remote turn on. I checked my battery straight and it's 12 when not on and up to 13ish when engine is running, but even then, just over 7 on the amp. That's a big difference. No matter what I check, can't seem to get amp off thermal. Any ideas? Thanks!

7 volts will not be sufficient for the amp either for power or remote. Also check to make sure you speakers wires are not crossed. If its goin it to protect mode immediately the amp is detecting a fault and is not turning on.

Your amp is rated at 500 watts. Here is the break down of your wattage.

When hooking up the amp make sure to use 4 gauge power and ground wire.

Rockford P5002 amp problem with thermal light and low voltage


Hello rbenwalker,

The voltage drop may not be in the actual power wire itself. The same reading on both the B+ and remote terminal probably points to a bad or high resistance ground. Try a different ground point or make sure there isn't any corrosion, paint or anything else preventing metal to metal contact.

Hope this helps.

I need to find output transistors for a Rockford amp


Call rockfor fosgate and ask if they sell component parts to public, if not, ask who the their component manufacturer is, maybe you can get it directly from them.

as long as you use the entire assembly, I have run across this with my brothers car, the trans axle was bad, he tied to use just the parts he needed, they were different design, so he ended up changing out the whole unit.

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.
