Question about Rockford Fosgate Punch P5002 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Bass level is the same @ all volume levels

I have a rockford Fosgate p5002 (500watt, 2 channel amp) hooked to a 10" infinity perfect sub. With the volume @ 1 the bass is just as loud as if the volume was at 20. Also the amp does not turn of when the stareo is turned off. I am thinking it is something with the wiring but I don;t know what. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance for your time and response,
John T.

Your problem is the wiring... but it is really hard for me to see where the problem is..

is there a way for you to send a picture of what you have done?

    i
    doubt you have to buy anything else for that..
    i also doubt that the problems are the built in amps (unless you have the stereo connected to the built in amps and then to the sub) which in there might be the miss connection..

    what i mainly suggest you is make a bridge from the out of the amp to the sub.. i hope this lil diagram i did in mspaint gives you a clearer idea..the circles are the channels.. you have to connect it from the fardest sides.. in the amp you could see the diagram that gives you the hint for the bridging..

    also, be sure that you have that amp only for your sub, because if you are connecting anything else to the amp, you arent going to get a good sound and could damage the amp in not-so-long term

I have a Kenwood KAC-9105D amp with 2 Rockford fosgate 10 inch subs in a sealed box. When i turn the volume up loud the bass fades out for a few secs and then comes back to being loud again, this keeps...


It's the battery, not enough juice to supply your amp at loud volumes so the bass will drop out especially on long bass notes. Replace your battery!

How do I hook up one sub to my rockford fosgate p3001 amp


Hey i have looked over many rockford manuals,(i own a 300.1 my buddy owns a 325.1) and for there mono(.1) amps there hooked together on the inside so channel A+ and B + are cencted on the inside the amp. So you ither hook one 2ohm sub to channel A or you can hook 1 4ohm subs to channel A and 1 4ohm sub to channel B. There 2ohm stable so any lower will eventualy burn the amp out.

2 12 p3d212 2 ohm hooking up to a rockford fosgate p325 .1 mono amplifier can it work? and how?


Hello a_brake11,

The P325.1 is relatively small to power a pair of P3's. You'll only get 325 watts RMS at 2 ohms (162.5 watts per sub). The P3's power range is from 100-500 watts, so they will work, but don't expect them to be really loud.

For best power, your subs should be wired with the voice coils in series and then the 2 subs paralleled to the amp resulting in a 2 ohm load.

Hope this helps.

I was given a kenwood kac742, what do i have to do to hook up 2 subs to it tom


You need:
1) 2 4-ohm subs
2) Appropriate enclosure
3) Amp wiring kit with RCA's

Connect each sub to a separate channel and set both mode switches to "MONO" (center position). In 2-channel mode, this amp is only rated at 80 Watts RMS, so you need relatively small and efficient subs. I'd say nothing bigger than 8" or perhaps 10". Rockford-Fosgate P1S48 (8") and R1S410 (10") will work OK with 50-150 watts RMS. Some others will also.

SPL 1920 watt amp


for 1 never turn the gain all the way up. it is not there to control volume it is there to match gain impedance between other amps and components. 2 i dont know what amp you have so i cant say much about that. 3 test the rca inputs by using a dif set and test the speaker wires as well

Quick question, amp problem


make sure you ground wires arent shared, meaning run each ground wire from each amp to its own grounding point

Sub woofer wiring


If you have a 500a2 and two 4 ohm single voice coil speakers, you have only one option. Connect one speaker to each channel.
