Re: Rockford Fosgate 800.2 no power

This one is a real twister. Some questions of you might help to correct this problem.
1) Did you in some way hook the CB Radio up to the amplifier?
2) Did you use the same power lead from the amp to install the CB Radio?
3) In some way, did you unhook the ground from the amp?

These questions will help in solving your problem

Rockford Fosgate P3002 stopped working

push down and up on your subs and see if they make a starching noise, if they do then they are blown. take a test light to the amp, on the power and the remote and see if it lights up. if it does then turn the amp down and with a small speaker plug it in to the speaker outs on the amp and see if it plays if not then your amp is bad.

Where is the power input cable on my x6 rockford fosgate amp

RF uses some pretty funky cases in order to hide the wiring.

usually a screw or 2 on the top will allow its removal and expose the wiring terminals

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.

Quick question, amp problem

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

No power

hi, some car amps need a high current remote supply to turn on. first make sure that you are using the proper gauge b+ and gnd cable for this particular rockford amp. then try switching the remtote turn on to this amp thru a simple Relay.(use the remote supply from your headunit as a trigger for the relay). do these connections without connecting any spks or rca line inputs. once amp is switching on then connect all other cables. OR lastly check the main fuse on the RF amp?? cheers
