Question about Rockford Fosgate Power 1000BD Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Amp overheating My Rockford Fosgate amp overheats all the time. If my car sits in the sun for any period of time, it will not work until it cools down. I had my amp mounted to the back of my sub box, but now it is to the side of the box. I thought this may give it more air; however, it did not work. It will even overheat during winter if I turn my stereo up. Does this sound like it is only overheating, or is there another problem? Should I mount the amp somewhere else?

You could just have a simple idling bias or dc balance alighnment thats needs attention. Always take care of the smaller problems before they grow as this problem could grow to where it pops your outputs , your speakers or the drivers. Try this before sending it in. 480-967-3565 Good Luck

P3001 problem


if amp is mounted to back of the box try and move to in front of box near subs or port. the air movement of the sub will help keep the amp cooled. or you can orer some 12v cooling fans and take back plate of the amp and cool it that way. or you can buy higher quality audio, your choice

Quick question, amp problem


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