CEA-2006
Power ratings on Rockford Fosgate amplifiers conform to CEA-2006 industry standards. These guidelines mean your amplifier's output power ratings are REAL POWER numbers, not inflated marketing ratings.

Differential Inputs
Differential input circuitry measures the voltage of both the (+) and (-) input signal. The circuitry subtracts the voltage common to both conductors (noise) resulting in only the clean signal. This allows only clean signal to enter the amplifier.

Discrete Surface Mount
DSM--An industry-leading manufacturing process, DSM utilizes high-speed robotics, high-quality 1% tight-tolerance parts and large board traces. The discrete components are laser etched to meet a particular value and a very low tolerance. This lower tolerance improves the efficiency of the circuit, decreases cross-talk from other discrete components and lowers operating temperature. These superior components are used by aerospace, automotive, and cellular manufacturers.

Dynamic Thermal Management
Heat is often inefficiently dissipated across a heatsink causing "hot spots". This impacts important design goals which are:

  • Keeping internal components cool.
  • Maximizing potential of all components.
  • Reducing distortion for better sound quality.
  • Increasing efficiency to produce more power.

Rockford Fosgate engineers have developed an award winning cooling design called DTM. This patent pending design seamlessly manages the output of power supply temperatures, while evenly distributing the excess heat across the entire amplifier.

MEHSA3
MEHSA3 (Maximum Efficiency Heat Sink Application - gen. 3) is a proprietary process that yields up to five times better heat transfer than traditional FET mounting techniques, using the exact same components. A multi-layer insulated metal substrate operating with minimal thermal resistance spreads heat both downward & outward to quickly dissipate heat from each device across the heatsink. This process combined with our optimized heatsink designs, DSM (Discrete Surface Mount) technology and MOSFET devices, allows Rockford Fosgate to squeeze more watts per cubic inch from every output device as well as provide consistent thermal stability. The 3rd generation creates a dielectric layer between the ceramic topside and the aluminum base that retains all of the electrical isolation and capacitive coupling of the original MEHSA material increasing it's thermal conductivity. The higher power handling results in a 20% reduction in thermal impedance.

NOMAD
NOMAD is a "real time" analog computer that protects your amplifier from shorting speaker wires and dangerously low speaker impedances.

Punch EQ2
In the early 70's, Jim Fosgate studied the acoustical properties of automobiles. Utilizing a real-time analyzer and pink noise, he would graph out the acoustical characteristics of each car he tested. Jim discovered three problems that were common to all cars:

  • A midbass hump between 100-275Hz
  • A steep roll-off of high frequencies from 2kHz up to 20kHz
  • Reduced bass response below 50Hz

The Punch EQ on-board equalization circuit helps correct for these acoustical deficiencies in the listening environment. When set to Low-Pass(LP) operation, it becomes a variable Bass Boost. When set to High-Pass (HP) operation, it acts as a variable Mid-Bass and Treble Boost. When set to All Pass (AP) operation, both Bass and Treble frequencies are boosted.

TO-247 MOSFETs
Rockford Fosgate amps use custom TO-247 MOSFETs. These have 60% more metal tab area for more power capacity, lower impedance and improved heat dissipation over traditional TO-220 MOSFETs found in competitor amps.

TRANS•ana
An award winning studio quality circuit borrowed from the pro audio company Hafler. TRANS-ana is a sound quality circuit that is a standard in the recording industry that simplifies the signal path of the amplifier, allowing the signal to travel through the amplifier at a low voltage. The result: Greater reliability, cleaner performance and exceptional musicality, speed, and durability.

I have my Punch 300.1 running at 2ohms on an Alpine Type-R 1242D in a sealed box. The amp is installed underneath my front passenger seat with plenty of room to spare. It hasn't gotten all that hot yet, and it sounds GREAT (especially at extremely high volume...)

The amp itself looks sharp, is well contstructed (all of the inputs, wiring, and adjustment knobs are at one end, which helps to keep things clean & organized when installing), it's very compact, and way more powerful than you might think. These amps come out of the box with a test sheet that is often 100+ watts HIGHER than the rms numbers that are on the stock spec sheet. This is a nice surprise for anybody buying one of these new.

Installation is a bit more advanced than other entry level priced amps. There is no on-board fuse for protection, so you'll also have to pick up some kind of inline fuse or fuse block. There are compression wiring terminals that can accept up to 4ga power/ground connections. The large size power/ground wiring terminals are obviously needed, because this little amp is also a power hog. It's probably a good idea to add a stiffening cap to your system if you're going to crank it up, because Rockford amps don't tend to be overly efficient. That being said, I've been pounding away on my system and my headlights haven't dimmed out yet... but I do have a Tundra with a V-8 that can handle more demanding power draws on the stock alternator than a smaller engine.

However, I would like if the adjustment knobs were more accessible because the downside to the amp design is that it can be difficult to reach the recessed dials depending on your installation.

had this amp over a year now and blew 2 8" subs(friend turned it louder than i said he could!, they were a snack for it pretty much with gain only 1/4 of the way up! just got 2 12" mtx jackhammers (500rms) and the guy down the street with his 3 12" cant believe the clarity and loudness this small amp puts out! Rockford WAY underrated this thing, mine birth sheet shows mine rated at 431rms @2ohms which is 131watts OVER what its supposed to put out! ive run this thing hours and rest assured... i give up far before it does. i need to buy stock in ibuprofen! so unless you want to blow your eardrums out or be heard in china then this is the one... it'll still let ppl know at all 4 corners of the intersection what good taste you have in music :P

I have this amp powering two 10" Kicker Comp subwoofers in a dual subwoofer enclosure. I'm serious, forget any amp that's more powerful or more expensive. This one provides so much pounding bass that you can't turn the gain up past 70%. I've had many audio systems in various vehicles in the past 15 years, and right now I couldn't be happier with the budget system currently in my vehicle. And I'm not exactly a newbie, I've had some pricey systems in the past and yet I can attest to the quality of this reasonably priced amp.
I'll just list off what's in my car right now, for those of you out there that are shopping for a complete system on a budget. The car is a Honda Accord coupe; I have a pair of 6.5" Alpine Type R (SPR-17C) door speakers, a pair of 6X9 Alpine Type R's (SPR-69C) in the rear deck, and powering those is a 300W Rockford Fosgate Prime four channel amp, model R300-4. I bought all these from Amazon at good, low prices.
Total costs: the door speakers were $120, the rears were around $120, the Prime amp was $130, the kicker subs were $120 for the PAIR, and the Punch mono amp I'm reviewing was $130. That's $620 (plus around $50 for wiring and I bought the enclosure off craigslist for 20 bucks!) for a system that is a 8/10 -- a whole system for the same price as one high-end, expensive amp. Not bad.
You'd be making a good choice getting this amp, just make sure you get decent subs and the right size enclosure. If it's too small you'll only get a fraction of your subs' capabilities.

I must say I was sleep on this amp. I previously owned 1400w alpine and 1200w brutus. I bought one of these amps off the streets for 30 bucks thought it was cute. I hooked it up to 2 rf punch power hx2s at 2ohm and WOW! deep bass that the brutus nor alpine could match. I looked up the specs and wow punch in a small package = I decided to purchase another one from here. 2 p300's = over 800 true rms and over 2400watts peak my friend has a bd1000 and im smashing him on power. *Remember to purchase a 60 amp external fuse block.

Do not hesitate to purchase this amp. I have the rockford P-300 amp hooked up to a sealed bass slammer box with 12" competition kicker CVR. Such Clean Crisp slappin base. You absolutely have to have the Bass Knob to control from song to song how much punch u want to amp to throw. Paperwork shows this amp has total watt power of 1248. Seriously, inside of 4 minutes I can feel my hair moving.
