    Hi, So to get this straight, you have power to it, RCA's hooked up, and the amp turns on when the stereo is on, correct?

Is the p3001 bridageable?

The Punch P3001 is a 2 ohm stable monoblock amplifier. It therefore has only 1 channel. Not bridgeable.

Below are the specs off the rockford site.

  • Punch P3001 - 300 watt mono amplifier

    150x1 @ 4 ohms, 300x1 @ 2 ohms, 12dB/oct HP/AP/LP crossover variable 40-400Hz, RCA inputs, RCA pass thrus, cast aluminum heatsink, military spec PCB, and remote Punch Bass EQ with 0-18dB @ 45Hz. H 2.4" x W 11" x L 11.7"

  • If you are using your amplifier at a 4 ohm impedance then you will only have 150 Watt delivered to your woofer or woofers. If you are running your amplifier at a 2 Ohm load you will be recieving 300 Watt to them. This however will also draw more current to deliver this power.

    If you are certain that you can deliver the correct current to the amplifier and you are running a 4 Ohm configuartion. Then consult a Rockford delaer for a sub upgrade.

    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

    Rockford P3001 amp not working

    peel the cover completely off the amp and give it some power- if the amp is blown there will be a tiny light lit up on the circiut board that quite simply says "SHORT"-If its blown then theres nothing you can do unless you are a badass of course- but if the amp is dear to you and you want to spend a little money on it to get it up and running again- go to rockfords website and get into the forums and ask the question-where do i get my fosgate fixed and it will pull up some mumbo jumbo but it tells you about a place called LANDIS TECHNICAL that bought up all the parts to their amps and is in the business of restoring the amplifiers to their factory specs and even sends you a new power certificate to go with your new and improved amp.hope that helps you-

    My amp only powers the subwoofer when the radio is on but wont when the cd player is on

    The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.
