Unit includes: Car Amplifier, Mounting hardware, and Instruction manual
Rockford Fosgate P500X2 500 Watt 2-Channel Class AB Car Amplifier:
500 Watt Punch Series 2-Channel Class AB Car Amplifier
TRANS•ana topology - simplifies the signal path of the amplifier that results in greater reliability and sound quality
MOSFET power supply for incredible power
LED indicators: Power, Protect, and Thermal
Balanced Differential inputs - filters and eliminates noise picked up from the RCA signal cables as they are run through the vehicle
C.L.E.A.N circuit that allows you to properly optimize input signal to output capability for proper signal to noise ratio and prevent damaging distortion
MEHSA3 utilizes a proprietary process that yields up to five times better heat transfer than traditional FET mounting techniques that lowers distortion, increases durability and prolongs the output device life span
DSM - An industry-leading manufacturing process, DSM utilizes high-speed robotics, high-quality 1% tight-tolerance parts and large board traces which improves efficiency of the circuit, decreases cross-talk from other discrete components and lowers operating temperature
NOMAD is a "real time" analog computer that protects your amplifier from shorting speaker wires and dangerously low speaker impedances
DTM - Dynamic Thermal Management evenly distributes heat across entire amplifier cast aluminum heat-sink without noisy fans utilizing convection cooling
Provides three way protection circuitry, which includes thermal, overload and speaker short protection

Review by Jerry
Install (5 star for easy)
I used three of these amps in a BMW audiophile sound system. I used one for the door speakers, one for the underseat subwoofers, and one for a free air subwoofer. There is plenty of power to spare and every note feels effortless. I wanted excellent dynamic range and needed an amp that would keep up with my speakers and I am very happy.(Posted on 1/9/2016)

Amplifiers are power hungry devices that are the heart of every car audio system. A power line fuse on your amp is essential because without one you could have a fire if the power wire is accidentally shorted. We show you how to properly wire a fuse at the battery of your vehicle.
Rockford Fosgate punch amplifiers are compatible with the PLC2 level control knob. The knob has a built in clip LED that detects source unit clipping and prevents damage to your amplifier and speakers.
We show you how to set the gains on your amplifiers correctly using an inexpensive oscilloscope. Using the DSO Nano V3, we demonstrate what amplifier clipping looks and sounds like. We then demonstrate how to set your system up the right way and prevent these damaging issues.
