Designed to withstand the elements, the M2-500X1 Element Ready™ amplifier is a 500 watt, class-D model, capable of operating at 4Ω or 2Ω mono. This amplifier is extremely efficient because of its class D technology which reduces demand on the electrical system. The amp also features C.L.E.A.N. circuitry to help you adjust your gain settings, a P.O.W.E.R. Supply that generates more power as voltage increases, and integrated Punch EQ that corrects for acoustic deficiencies while delivering up to 3X the bass. For subwoofers, a variable infrasonic filter and remote level control allows you to tune the bass for the desired level for the music.
Serious marine sound, made simple. The M5 amplifiers feature the next level of Element Ready™ design from Rockford Fosgate that’s built as rugged as the outdoor environment it’s used in.
Features & Benefits:
Element Ready™: Purpose Built for the Marine Environment, Rockford’s Element Ready™ products are built to stand up to Water, Salt, and UV, making sure your amplifiers stand the test of time.
C.L.E.A.N.: Our Patented circuit with input and output clip indicators help match the source unit to the amplifier, which makes for easy set-up and optimizes musical output.
P.O.W.E.R. Supply: The unique P.O.W.E.R. supply continues to generate more than rated power as the voltage increases, giving you the output, you demand.
