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.
