There is an elite group of car audio enthusiasts that pride themselves on power and hard-hitting bass. Legendary Car Audio manufacturer Rockford Fosgate refers to this club as the “1K & Over” Club. That means the members of that exclusive “club” proudly boast a car audio system with over 1,000 watts of power. For those that are experienced with this 12-volt industry will recognize 1,000 watts as a lot of power! With that amount of wattage, you can build a system that is powerful, loud, and produces deep bass. Members of this high output society look to higher end components to meet their needs of high-end audio. Because of this demand, Rockford Fosgate has become recognized as a trustworthy and reliable company that is known for high output.
Consider the Rockford Fosgate Power T1500-1bd car amplifier. This amp will instantly gain you access to the “1K & Over” club. At 2 ohm, this amp will produce 1000 watts to a single channel and at 1 ohm the amp will produce 1500 watts. Keep in mind that those ratings are CEA-2006 certified RMS ratings and not inflated max ratings. Like many of Rockford’s other amps, the T1500-1bd is packed full of advanced audio technology. The Class-bd design increases the amp efficiency to 75-80%, which is much better than the 20-60% ratings of traditional class A/B amplifiers. Differential inputs will assist in better sound quality by eliminating noise picked up by signal cables. Even more advanced are the Discrete Surface Mount (DCM) components that decrease the amps operating temperature, while decreasing cross talk from other components. Combine this with the MEHSA3 and TO-247 MOSFETS and the amplifier achieves lower distortion, increased durability, improved heat dissipation, and greater power output. Putting all the technical language aside, the Rockford T1500-1bd is a powerful and reliable amplifier that is designed to power high-end subwoofers. And to add a bit of character, Rockford’s engineers add their own customer avatar to each amp as a personal signature to their commitment to being designed and engineered in the United States of America!
