He all, new to the forums here, I initially joined to get info on an old Punch amp i bought, but im finding some great info on here...Im trying to build me a nice audio setup for my 03 Durango, and with previous audio setups i have done, I have never been satisfied with their sound, so I am hoping to find some information on here, search around, pick some brains, and see what I am doing wrong. Bare with me, I know the basics, but thats it.

Anyone know anything about old Rockford Fosgate amps? Bought a Punch 75 off someone for $10.00, don't know much about what i can do with it though, i have a post with pictures in the amps section. Someone please check it out so i know if i should sell it, use it, or trade it for something else.

Punch 75? Heres all there is too know :) Rockford Fosgate® - Punch75 (http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/products/product_details.asp?item_id=100037&locale=en_US)

actually depends on what punch 75,if its the older model you can use it for woofers,but still depends,there was 3 different models over the years i think.the original punch 75 square amp,the ix oval shaped amp , and the 25 to life amp

Ya.. you can sell it... to me..Lol.Sounds like thats the legend of the Punch series that surprised /took the market late 80s.If its one I m thinking about,it is a good amp,and pretty much put RF on the board,..A punch 30 back then did not have an issue pushing a pair of 200 rms svc 10s..Welcome by the way.I had a 100 on 4 Still Water Kicker SVC10s in a single cab 87 toyota.I would utilize it in your set up/or sell it for what you can,and buy the things needed.The 45 could push a pair of 300 rms 12s,that 75, ive seen push 4-12s all original RF punch amps.I had the 75,on 4-jbl 6x9 3ways firing up at the indiv in seats, the 45 on a pair of 5.25 jbl,and the tear drop style mids/highs,and the 30 on 4 jbl titanium tweets,with the sony xec-1000 x-over,with a sony hu.Sounded pretty good...back then lol!!1989

thats ok everyone starts somewhere.welcome

I started with 300 watts, Kicker comps, in prefabs... Now Im running 3 batts, 4000 watts, custom built subs and boxes, and active front stage lol

Yeah I started with just a sony explode set up about 6 years ago. Since then I have had all sorts of things, from entry level subs to high end mainstream subs and the best of the underground custom subs.

Currently sitting on quite a bit of gear and the set up in my car changes often. Gosh I'm doing a little over 3krms right now in my grand prix coupe. sounds pretty nice. And a little over a year ago I said i didn't need more power than the 300 watt Alpine type S I had in my Ford Focus then... everyone says it, the car audio fanatics never settle down!
