There is nothing to reset on this amp, it has no microprocessor.

Resets for electronic equipments are for clearing any software glitches that the microprocessor uses to do complex functions. I have only seen microprocessors in a couple of Kenwood amplifiers, and I have fixed many Fosgate amplifiers including this model. If you are not gettng any sound from it, you may have a blown channel. It is the most common failure I have seen in these. If that is the problem with yours, you need to take it to a service center that works on Rockford Fosgate amps, they have output transistors that are mounted on what is called a "mesha rail" and you can not change out just the 1 or 2 that are shorted, you must replace the entire rail because the transistors can not be removed from the rail and there are no generic parts for them as well.

I hope this helps you with your problem, deciding what you can do with it. It is a very good amplifier and in most cases it is worth the repair cost. You can not get a different amplifier of the same quality for less than the repair cost which usually runs about $125 at my shop.

Let me know if I can be any more help to you.

    You have a blown channel, I have seen this many times. it needs to be serviced by someplace that works on Fosgates. You may need to call around to find one. Not many shops fix them. You could always send it to my shop in the metro Detroit area.

Where to take my amp for repair


Contact Rockford for factory service.

If you don't want to send it to Rockford, ask the local audio shops who they use for amp repairs. If several use the same repair shop, it's probably a good place to send your amp.

There is no reset button. If you disconnect all of the speaker wires from the amplifier's speaker terminals and unplug the RCA cables, does the protect light still come on (I assume that you've already replaced the fuse)?
