    Is this amp the real deal?

    Rockford Fosgate P500-2 amp. Thinking about running this with my 12 in Alpine Type R. All opinions are welcome. Thanks

    Depends on the Rs coil. Does the amp do 4 ohm bridged or 2?

    Then you need a dual 2 R. Wire to 4 and let it eat.

    Then it won't work. It will but only from one channel on the amp. So no bridge and no 1000 watts.

    @audiobahn told me that if the sub was a DVC 4 ohm it would be fine to run it bridged at 2 ohm

    Not on that amp. It will protect or just go up in smoke. Unless it can be bridged at 2ohm. I haven't looked it up

    Re: Is this amp the real deal?

    Ok it only does 500x1 at 4 ohms. So off one channel you would only get 250 watts. It will work but not full potential.

    Unless what could be bridged at 2 ohm? The sub? Or the amp? He showed me a diagram that had everything laid out
