The Punch P500X2 is a 2-channel stereo amplifier capable of producing 250 Watts into each channel at 2-Ohms. The P500X2 amplifier is great with full-range or component systems or can be bridged for use with several subwoofers.
The P500X2 is an excellent way to PUNCH up your sound system without monopolizing your entire trunk - that way you have more room for subs! With its massive output stage, this amplifier is best suited for driving a pair of 8-ohm SVC subwoofers or four 2-ohm DVC subwoofers. Remember to utilize the recommended power and speaker cables to optimize power delivery.

Power ratings on Rockford Fosgate amplifiers conform to CEA-2006 industry standards. These guidelines mean your amplifier's output power ratings are REAL POWER numbers, not inflated marketing ratings.
Trans•ana is a Class A/B topology that simplifies the signal path of the amplifier allowing the signal to travel through the amplifier at a lower voltage. The result is greater reliability and exceptional sound quality.
Dynamic Thermal Management evenly distributes excess heat across entire amplifier heatsink.
This product fulfills all essential safety and environmental requirements as defined in the European Directives (768/2008 EC).
Balanced Differential Inputs
Differential inputs eliminate noise picked up by signal cables.
DSM utilize 1% tight-tolerances improving efficiency of the circuit, decreases cross-talk from other discrete components and lowers operating temperature.
MEHSA3 reduces MOSFET temperatures, lowers distortion, increases durability and prolongs the output device life span.
NOMAD is a "real time" analog computer that protects your amplifier from shorting speaker wires and dangerously low speaker impedances.
