    same problem what is wrong with this amp? Thermal light comes on all the time and if I ever think about turning up my music it cuts off all the way. I know for a fact that the amp is installed correctly I jus tdont think that it was build very well and cant handle the power that its supposed to.

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.

Make sure the amp is well ventilated, it needs to cool down or else it will shut itself off, then when it has cooled off enough it will turn on again. Also, check your wires especially your power wires. Make sure that they are the correct gauge. If everything looks ok then there may be a fault in the amp.

I have a rockford fosgate 550 that the fuse blows


Short inside one of the transistors. This requires very good soldring skills and electrical know-how, and some thermal paste to go between the heat-sink and the transistor. Unfortunatly this is not a cheap repair, probably cost around 100 dollars.

Cheers,

Check you inputs to verify you have a signal coming in, if signal then check outputs try a speaker that you know is working and plug it in if that speaker plays then the subs/ or speaker wiring is bad, if it doens't play then you probably have a blown output transistor on the amp or possibly a terminal ground/positive has come loose on the inside..

I have a Rockford Fosgate Puch 1000 watt amp "thermal" problem


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.

Rockford Fosgate Punch 360.2


If the wires were touching then the amp overworked itself into a early grave..What happends when they touch is the amp goes from seeing a 4 ohm load to seeing a 0 ohm load. You can imagine why this would be bad for a amp...usually the amp should shut off to protect from damage and I would assume that Rockford would. Right now im having a similar problem..I suggest your call rockford and ask to talk to a technical advisor ( the name escapes me) and ask him what he thinks.
