    Icon14 The Rockford Fosgate Power 1000 25 to life!

    Finally!!!! The Rock has come back to Baltimore!!!! Or better yet, finally my amp has come to my door step via UPS. I just hooked that monster up and i must say i have never heard such clean power. This 5 channel amp is a true beast. If there is a better amp please someone stand up tell me. but if you are looking for a good looking amp that performs better than the baltimore raven's (lol just joking) this amp is it.

    I'm trying to decide between this amp or a combo of JL 300/4 & 500/1; does anyone have any thoughts or experience with either/both? I'll be powering a set of CDT classic comps (active) & 3 ED 9kv2 subs.

    Re: The Rockford Fosgate Power 1000 25 to life!

    I too have been contemplating this amp for a couple of reasons.

    1) A single amp to run my entire system for simplicity reasons
    2) Increased efficiency due to a newer design and newer parts

    I am an old school guy and worry that the sound quality from the RF amp won't be on par with the HiFonics Series VIII's that I am running now.

    Anyone been running one of these for awhile care to comment on it's performance overall? Any issues from a quality standpoint?

    How does the Class D subwoofer portion on the amp perform, good clean solid distortion free bass response?

    Inquiring minds want to know if it is worth the jump to a new product. I have not purchased a brand new amp since the mid-90's.



    1995 Oriental Blue BMW 525i 5 Speed
    Stock Alpine System Actively Crossed Over & Amped w/CD 6-Disc Changer System with a/d/s 235is comps in front (3-Ways front, 2-Ways rear) sounds really good. All functions are displayed on the dash's check control display module.

    I too am an old school guy, I havent done much since the 90s maybe early 2000s.
    I decided to do a system and got a New Rockford Power 1000 and Im not impressed. I just dont think it compares to good old amps.
    Im actually considering going to Hifonics Series VIII.
    The birthsheet on this amp shows over 100/ch @ 4 ohm I bet you dollars to donuts that an old Hifonics rated anywhere close kills it.
    Sub channel is good enough for me but compared to a VIII Zues I dont thinkn it compares.

    I am running a cream of the Series VIII crop Isis on the fronts and another on the subwoofers. The SQ is awesome that is what I was afraid of losing with a changeover to the newer amp. I suppose if they were all that there would not be that many of them for sale. There were only 2500 made and if they were that good I would think they would all be gone by now.

    I am sticking with the old school stuff for now I suppose.
