Summary: I have the 1500 and the power 400.4 and my amps don't rattle. The 1500 bdcp is amazing. I have it on 2 l7s and its a mobile earthquake. My birthsheet stated that mine puts out 1956 rms @ 1 ohm. You get way more than you pay for with rockford. I will never buy anything else again. Worth every penny.
Summary: I bought this amp about 7 years ago and have run several different systems with it. I currently run a JL Audio 12W7 with it and could easily run another. The amp has been in 6 different cars and has not failed me once. I run a single 4ga power cable as the manual suggests and it powers it easily.
Pros: Plenty of power, small package, no overheating, multiple mounting options, classy appearance.
Cons: Price could be a couple hundred less, but for the reliability, it's hard to beat.
Summary: Havent upgraded my alt yet but even now this thing has beaten a sundown audio SA-12 to pieces literally. Anyone familiar with those subs knows it takes a lot to blow them but this amp can definitely do it. Sound quality and power output of this amp are exceptional.
Cons: Heatsink does its job but this will get hot to touch after a while. It's part of the design though and might get better once I upgrade my electrical a bit. Just don't sit this on plastic and you'll be fine. Never gone into thermal protect.
Summary: I just put the Power T600-4 and T1500-1bd in my car. For shear power these amps are awesome! My one and only complaint is the shiny plastic cover they put on the amplifer. At high volume they rattle soooo loud I cant even listen to them.
Pros: Tons of power Run cool and smooth
Cons: Audio Equipment that rattles. Doesn't get much worse than that.
Summary: I use this amp to run two 15 inch T1's. The amp has plenty of control over the subs running it at a one ohm load. It's performance is flawless. I have it mounted on the rear floor pan in a Nissan Versa hatchback.
Pros: Power, Performance, Flawless, and Plenty of control over my subs. Crutchfield tech was correct this thing is wicked strong.
Summary: If you are looking for top of the line power and world class SQ look no further. I love the bd-class, it matches great SQ with the power efficiency of a class D amplifier. The new heatsink design disperses heat evenly so no part of them amp overheats.
Cons: Plastic control knobs(they work fine, just use the proper tweaking tool)
Summary: I had a different amp rated at 1500 watts before getting this one the difference is unbelievable. Rockford still brings it. My soundqubed 10 has come to life and is slamming my truck. Songs that were lacking punch earlier now sound as they should.
Pros: Tons of power across all impedance loads. Never shuts off as long as I feed it what it needs. Sound quality is great.
Cons: I wish Rockford still made these in the USA.
Summary: Holy moly Batman! I still hear bells ringing in my head. Talk about some thump! Hooked this badboy up to two Alpine SWR-10D2's subs in parallel in a 2-Ohm load and made all my initial amp gain settings and so forth with my head unit and x-over and Blam!
Pros: Plenty of power and built in infrasonic filter with X-over and pass through RCA outputs.
Cons: Sucks some juice from your system when it's really hitting hard. Top plastic plate rattles a little bit. (There's a simple solution though.)
Summary: Being 32 yrs old, I have had a lot of amps but now I've come to appreciate better quality such as this Rockford 1,500 watt + powerhouse. Before I bought this amp for my little commuter car I had a JL J2-1000 amp but it couldnt keep the power up like this Fosgate beauty does.
