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.
Answer ID #199 in our Knowledge Base .">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.
IPX6 Water Intrusion Rating
A series of proprietary Rockford Fosgate technologies designed to deliver all the PUNCH, while consuming less juice.
Patented BTL powered "FreeLoad" technology is a small amplifier that does not require a B+/GND connection to produce power.
The PM100X1 is a 100 Watt dynamic power mono amp using DC and AC voltages present on existing radio speaker outputs. This design allows connection to a speaker wire without running a B+ cable. It also presents a safe load to the radio amp circuit to eliminate excessive wear and tear on the radio, making it ideal for OEM and aftermarket radio integration. The conformal coated PCB allows for mobile, motorsport and marine applications. PM100X1K "KIT" ships with 2 pcs.
The PM100X1 amplifier uses our patent pending BTL technology to provide you a very unique amplifier solution. This single channel amplifier utilizes the speaker output of the radio to not only provide the audio signal it needs, but also the power that runs the unit. This is done through a combination of the DC offset voltage commonly present and the audio AC signal itself. Initially, it uses the DC offset voltage for its turn on power as well as primary amplification power. As volume is increased and the output power demand rises, the amplifier begins sharing the power load between the DC and AC signals. Once high volume is reached, the majority of the amplifier's power is provided from the AC signal only and is supplemented by its intenal storage bank. This design allows it to actually charge its capacitive bank on the downside of the AC signal wave which is essentially unused power anyway. It also presents no more load to the radio than a standard 2 or 4 ohm speaker would thus keeping the radio amplifier circuit safe from low impedance conditions. This design allows the amplifier to be connected to a radio with a rated 20 watt output and produce up to 100 watts dynamically. The unit also features a 2/ 4 ohm input switch to match the amplifier to the output impedance rating of the radio circuit. For speaker protection, we incorporate and selectable high pass crossover with setting at 60, 80 and 100Hz. In rare cases there is not enough DC voltage present to power the amp at turn on so an add on B+ wire is included and can be tied to other lower current circuits in its proximity. This design makes the amplifier ideal for OEM or aftermarket upgrades without having to use physically larger amplifiers as they can be hidden in the dash or doors of the vehicle. It is also IPX6 rated for those installs where moisture may be present.
