Rockford fosgate t1500-1bdcp rated power?

Recommended Posts

Ok so trying to get an idea of the t1500bdcp power at 2ohm . I've tested with a dmm and used a -5db track 40hz and got 63.3 volts and that's around 2k cant be correct.  Anyone know a ballpark way with a dmm .

use a -0dB track if you want to be sure they wont get any clipping ever. you have more headroom but slightly less wattage on quieter bass hits. but its safer on your subwoofers. less chance of cooking them if you accidentally play one of those bad "bass boosted" songs.

and thats weird. take a look at this chart to get the wattage you want. and adjust the gain and voltage accordingly.741313448_ampchartRMSchart-nodirections.jpg.deba0c92db461eaa1feb91ef6d1938b3.jpg

Well if you are doing the DMM method using the calculations of 2ohm x 1500 = 3000. Then the square root of that is around 54 volts AC. Keep in mind though that rockford's amps are underrated so it is probably putting out around 1800 - over 2K watts. There a video of one being tested that put out 2235 watts.

2k is well withing reach if the t1500.1

 

These Rockford amps ain't no joke.

 

Big D did a 1200 prime that shit took .8 ohm and did around 1900 ifrc 

It did 1534 dynamic @ 1ohm

This is thier budget amp @ $270.00
