Element Ready™ - Amps

Dust - We make sure that displays and motor structures are sealed up tight so they look as clear as possible and perform day in and day out no matter how many times you hit the trails. UV Inhibitor Materials - Centrex and ASA plastic materials are used for their UV radiation resistance and components are tested in accordance with ASTM D4329 testing and certification procedures. Corrosion Protection (Electronics) - Two part epoxy coated PCB boards prevent corrosion of critical components due to exposure in moisture rich environments. Stainless Hardware - Stainless hardware is used due to its natural resistance to corrosion and rusting. This ensures that electrical connections will not degrade over time due to exposure to the elements. ">These amplifiers are protected against Dust, UV, Corrosion, and feature Stainless hardware.

MEHSA 4 (Maximum Efficiency Heat Sink Application)

4 (Maximum Efficiency Heat Sink Application - gen. 4) is a proprietary process that yields a better heat transfer than traditional FET mounting techniques, using the exact same components. An 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 4th generation is a ceramic isolator and provides improved EMI and advanced thermal coupling. The higher power handling results in a high reduction in thermal impedance.">MEHSA 4 reduces MOSFET temperatures, lowers distortion, increases durability and prolongs the output device life span.

NOMAD

The NOMAD circuit accomplishes just that. It's a totally new and very high tech method of dealing with device current and voltage parameters, without being affected by other factors such as heat. Our approach to "real time" protection is one that uses a mathematical transformation which eliminates the problems encountered with trying to do real time multiplication of instantaneous device voltage and current. Essentially an analog computer calculates at each instant, the maximum allowable level of safe current for each output device, based on their instantaneous voltage drop. This allows the protection to be much more precise than ever before, and ensures reliability.">NOMAD is a "real time" analog computer that protects your amplifier from shorting speaker wires and dangerously low speaker impedances.

CE Compliant

It proves to the authorities, but also to the buyer -or user- that this product fulfills all essential safety and environmental requirements as they are defined in the so-called European Directives. The ce marking directive (93/68/EEC) was adopted on 07-22-1993 and updated as 768/2008 EC on 13-8-2008. The directive gives a detailed description of the initials CE and any other marks specific to a particular directive and the many ways conformity may be acquired. In return for fulfilling the CE marking requirements, the manufacturer or its agent gets the permission to cover the entire European market using only one approval procedure for the topics covered in the applicable directives. No member state of the European Community can refuse trade of any (electronic or electrical) product that has been CE marked (unless fraud suspected). For some products however, national regulations exist, as long as the requirements covered in these national regulations are not covered by a pan-European Directive. ">This product fulfills all essential safety and environmental requirements as defined in the European Directives (768/2008 EC).

Designed to withstand the elements, the M2-300X4 Element Ready™ amplifier is a 300 watt, full-range class-D model, capable of operating at 4 or 2 stereo, and 4 bridged/mono. This amplifier is extremely efficient because of its class D technology which reduces demand on the electrical system. The amp also features C.L.E.A.N. circuitry to help you adjust your gain settings, a P.O.W.E.R. Supply that generates more power as voltage increases.
The M2 Series were developed for marine audio environments that feature UV resistant protection and special internal conformal coating that protect the electronics from water. It's designed for those who want a reliable amplifier - with all the power and performance you've come to expect from Rockford Fosgate - at an economical price. Rockford Fosgate amplifiers are renowned world-wide for being "under rated," easily surpassing all specifications, and most importantly, generating more power than their ratings. The latest generation of M2 Series amplifiers are also designed to be easy to setup and configure, making them perfect for use in any application.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
