With its super efficient Class-BD circuit topology, the P500-1bd will drop some serious BASS! Due to its dedicated low frequency response, this amplifier is optimized for mid-bass speakers or subwoofers only. No need to worry because its 1-ohm capability will drive a pair of 4-ohm DVC subwoofers or quad-configuration of 2-ohm DVC subwoofers with ease.

Rockford Fosgate Punch Series Amplification

For over 25 years, Punch amplifiers have set the standard in the car audio amplifier industry and they continue to do so today. It's the reason that they have become the most popular amplifiers in the world. Each of the Punch family amplifiers reproduce sonic perfection along with impressive power in a compact chassis.

Optimized for mid-bass speakers or subwoofers. Click to enlarge.

All connections are recessed into the amplifier's chassis and located on the bottom edge of the P500-1bd, for a clean, uncluttered install that looks great in any car. Click to enlarge.

P500-1bd Features

  • 12dB/octave crossover
  • 4 Gauge power/ground terminals
  • Audiophile grade speaker connections
  • Infrasonic filter
  • MOSFET output stage
  • MOSFET power supply
  • RCA pass-thru
  • Top Mounted LED Indicators

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.

Class bd
Rockford Fosgate bd topology is a revolutionary patented design, integrating a technology that is more efficient than typical class AB and has lower distortion than class D designs. POWER bd amplifiers are 75-80% efficient vs. 20-60% efficient class ab amplifiers. What does that mean? More power from your amplifier with less drain on your vehicles electrical and charging system.

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.

DSM
DSM utilize 1% tight-tolerances improving efficiency of the circuit, decreases cross-talk from other discrete components and lowers operating temperature.

Dynamic Thermal Management
Heat is often inefficiently dissipated across a heatsink causing "hot spots". 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) reduces MOSFET temperatures, lowers distortion, increases durability and prolongs the output device life span.

NOMAD
NOMAD (Non Multiplying Advanced Decision) 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, and 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.

Rockford Fosgate Avatar
These Avatars are a personal signature from the Rockford Fosgate team member who designed and engineered this fanatic product. This statement illustrates Rockford's commitment to being Designed and Engineered in the U.S.A.

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.

I checked in many forums on mono amp before i decided on this. Does its job perfectly. Its driving a 12" JBL but planning to move to RF or Kicker sub woofer. Its stays cool and no heating issues. Note that, buy a good wiring set to power this and also would recommend the remote control. If you listen to lots of mp3 in your car, based on the conversion ratio, the bass may not be reproduced well and the remote helps.

Purchased from Amazon, professionally installed in a 2004 GMC Yukon. Driving a Rockford Fosgate Punch P3 P3L-1X12 Single 12-Inch Pre-Loaded Enclosure, also purchased from Amazon.

Plenty of power, clean/clear/accurate sound. It even looks good. Happy customer here. I was concerned about it being powerful enough; my concerns evaporated when I first heard it.
