    RF 1000bd

    I found a used Rockford 1000-bd pretty cheap. It's rated for 1k @ 2 ohms... Would it be able to handle being ran at 1 ohm?

    post a picture of it, the newer ones are 1 ohm stable but that sounds like an older one and by older I mean pre 2005-6ish

    If its the model I am thinking it is it would probably handle a 1 ohm load but why not just buy an amp rated for that instead of chancing it?

    Missing the end caps. I'm fairly sure it's only rated to do 2 ohms

    I'm not interested in a new model. I'm looking for a decently priced amp for my friend in the 1500-2kw range, preferably under $200

    No. It should do around 1100 @ 2 ohm though.
