With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.


If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up without the thermal LED being lit, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still indicates that it's in thermal protection, it needs to be serviced. A local repair shop will be the quickest. Rockford will email you the schematics.

    I had the same problem with the same amp. Stuck in thermal mode. The problem was where the ground cable connects to the car chassis, mine was completely disconnected. My subs still had faint power since the ground cable was still touching the metal. But once I fixed the connector is was good as new!! No more Thermal light.

Why does my 6x9 amp drop or not let the sound play at all when my subs are on? it just started to happen? they worked together fine before. i turn the subs off and the 6x9 work? but when i turn the subs on...


You probably have too much hooked up for the size of your power supply which is presumably a small car battery. You either need to get:

A) New, better bigger battery.
B) Capacitor in series with battery.
C) Both of the above.

I have one 12inch 1000 watt mtx sub what size amp should i buy


Hello taona80,

If the 1,000 watts is RMS, I'd recommend an amp in the 750-1,000 watt RMS range, perhaps like the Alpine MRP-M1000 or Rockford-Fosgate T1000bd. If the 1,000 watts is peak power, the subs continuous (RMS) power handling is much lower, probably 300-400 watts. In that case, I'd recommend the Alpine MRP-M500 or Rockford-Fosgate T500-1bd.

Same exact problem


Hello phatjay_31,

It's likely that the sub has been damaged by too much power. The Type R's in both 10" and 12" versions can only handle up to 500 watts RMS. The 15" version can handle up to 750 watts. The Rockford-Fosgate T3000bd1 amp puts out 3000 watts RMS into a 1 ohm load.

I'd check the voice coils. They are probably melted.

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
