The Rockford Fosgate PM500X1bd Mono Amplifier offers high dynamic power using Class-BD technology and a conformal coated PC board designed for motorsport and marine applications.

With its super-efficient Class-BD circuit topology, the PM500X1bd will drop some serious BASS! Due to its dedicated low-frequency response, this amplifier is optimised 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.

Main Features:

  • High-level input capable with Auto Turn-On circuit
  • Optional remote Punch Level Control (PLC2) ready (w/ input clip indicator)
  • RCA pass-thru outputs
  • 12dB/octave Butterworth crossover
  • Features C.L.E.A.N. Set-up
  • On-board Punch EQ with +18dB boost @ 45Hz
  • Muted turn on
  • Cast aluminum heatsink
  • Stealth top-mounted control panel
  • Short circuit protection
  • Over current protection
  • Infrasonic filter
  • Marine grade two part epoxy coating on circuit boards
  • Marine grade stainless steel hardware
