Power 500 Watt Class-br Mono Element Ready™ Amplifier TM500X1br

The TM500X1br is a powerful compact 500 Watt mono amplifier.  The amplifier features our proprietary high efficiency Class-br "boosted rail" topology for maximum efficiency, power, and sound quality in low-frequency amplifier.  Top mounted controls feature our patented C.L.E.A.N. circuit to easily set your gains, integrated low-pass crossover, and our famous Punch EQ.

 

The amplifier also features high and low level inputs combined with our differential inputs to eliminate incoming noise.  It can also provide a remote-out trigger when using high level inputs. Dual fan cooling, real time thermal monitoring and dual extruded heat sinks maintain heat dissipation even at high outputs keep the amp cool.

 

In addition to the conformal coated pc boards, the Element Ready™ design ads protection against water, dust and UV rays, making it great for multiple applications where it could be exposed to harsh outdoor environment.

Overview

The Power TM500X1br 500 Watt mono ultra-compact amplifier is built on Rockford Fosgate’s patented Boosted Rail technology that sips current while retaining a storage reserve for extended bursts of power. Flexible vehicle integration enabled through low-level and high-level inputs with auto turn-on. Top mounted controls allow easy access to built-in crossover and C.L.E.A.N. input/output clip detection circuits. The 3-stage thermal lock extrusion with dual fan forced induction keeps everything cool while real-time thermal/protection schemes safeguard the amplifier.
