Summary: Great amp, mine arrived looking brand new, and completely impressed me. The only thing that wasn't included was a birth sheet so you know the exact output but saving the money buying refurbished was good enough. This amp is paired to (2) JL10's in a .75 sealed box in my extended cab sierra and it pounds hard. Its clean, clear, no distortion. I guess its doing between 250 to 300 watts each sub at 2 ohms and the amplifier gain is set about 5.
Pros: More than enough power for most 10 or 12 pairs, better than great price, arrived looking as new, another great Rockford rebuild.
Cons: None I have found, except it didn't include the birthsheet.
Summary: I've had this beautiful amp for about a year now and couldn't be happier. I was really hesitant shelling out all the money for an amp but my friend explained the importance of good clean and constant power to my 10 inch self contained JL sub. The sound is clean, and powerful. It's easy to crank up the bass and hear no distortion and have my friends say: "Dude, that's tight!". I just wish I had done this years ago!
Pros: power, build, looks beautiful, runs cool.
Cons: shame that it stays hidden because it looks so cool.
Summary: I bought this amp based on the company reputation and the fact that Rockford is the best top end product available here in South Africa. I did not make a mistake because this amp ROCKS. Its small but the weight compared to similar sized amplifiers suggest that this is a quality amp made with quality parts for the true power hungry system installers. It also looks good and i've got no problem turning up the base to my T1 15" subwoofer.
Summary: Had to replace an amp and bass set that got blown out!!! Rockford Fosgate was recommended and I'm definitely pleased... I'm pushing two 12's ( JL's) and these joints produce some rumbling bass you can literally FEEL THE BASS( inside and outside the car)!!!! Definitely would recommend this amp.. I now have to also change my door and rear deck speakers because the bass is drowning them out!!!! GO FOSGATE!!!! Whooo hooooo!!!!!

24 March 2010
Summary: As a new user of Rockford Fosgate products, I must say I was not let down at all. This amp which retails at my local store in Wilmington, Delaware for about 600$, was highly recommended by all of the professional installers and salesman around. I currently have it hooked up to 1 single Rockford Fosgate T112, which is a dual 2 ohm subwoofer.
Summary: this amp never looses power when its hot its still clean the best awsome amp i am a ols scool installer and rockford has never let me down unlike punch witch is now junk yaddaaaaaaaaaaa yadaaaaaa yaddddda yaddddddaaaaa
Summary: This amp is Rockford Fosgate at it's best. Small, compact and very powerful. My amp was rated at 755 watts @ 1 ohm and 489 watts @ 2 ohms. It does every bit of the power it's rated. For all of those who say Fosgate isn't what it used to be, give these amps a try. This amp is Rockford Fosgate at it's best.
