Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (660) 263-3367 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability.

Constant Power

Constant Power is a patented circuit topology that provides instantaneous delivery of output power over varying impedance loads.

CTA-2006 Compliant

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.

MEHSA 3

3 (Maximum Efficiency Heat Sink Application - gen. 3) is a proprietary process that yields up to five times better heat transfer than traditional FET mounting techniques, using the exact same components. A multi-layer 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 3rd generation creates a dielectric layer between the ceramic topside and the aluminum base that retains all of the electrical isolation and capacitive coupling of the original MEHSA material increasing it's thermal conductivity. The higher power handling results in a 20% reduction in thermal impedance. ">MEHSA 3 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.

Punch EQ2

A midbass hump between 100-275Hz A steep roll-off of high frequencies from 2kHz up to 20kHz Reduced bass response below 50Hz The Punch EQ on-board equalization circuit helps correct for these acoustical deficiencies in the listening environment. When set to Low-Pass(LP) operation, it becomes a variable Bass Boost. When set to High-Pass (HP) operation, it acts as a variable Mid-Bass and Treble Boost. When set to All Pass (AP) operation, both Bass and Treble frequencies are boosted.">Onboard equalizer with up to +18dB @ 45Hz and/or up to +12dB boost at 12kHz.

4Ω/2Ω/1Ω Capable

Allows the amplifier to produce the same power into either a 4-ohm, 2-ohm or 1-ohm speaker load. Works with Constant Power to optimize power output at varying impedances.

The Power T1000-4ad is a 4-channel amplifier that combines the sound quality characteristics of a Class-A design with the efficiency of a Class-D in one remarkable package, offering high fidelity in a full-range configuration.
The T1000-4ad combines sound quality characteristics of Class-A designs with efficiency of a Class-D in one remarkable package. Superior sound quality is possible through the implementation dynamic switching frequency control. The addition of Constant Power circuitry produces optimized output at a range of impedances. Rockford Fosgate created Class-bd for brute power to run low frequency subwoofers, and now Class-ad offers high fidelity in a full-range configuration.

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.
