The PM1000X5 is a 1000 Watt 5-channel amplifier with high dynamic power using Class-a/b technology on the front/rear channels, Class-bd for the subwoofer channel, and a conformal coated pc board designed for motorsport and marine applications.
The PM1000X5 1,000 Watt full-range 5-channel is the one-and-only amplifier you will need to run your entire system. Run dash speakers off the front channels, run back speakers off the rear channels and run subwoofer(s) off the 5th channel! Known world-wide for brute power, this amplifier offers a higher level of efficiency along with a tri-stage protection that covers thermal, over-current and short circuits.

Class BD amplifiers have 75-80% efficiency ratings vs. 20-60% efficiency ratings of traditional class A/B amplifiers.
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.
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.
Element Ready™ - Amps
These amplifiers are protected against Dust, UV, Corrosion, and feature Stainless hardware.
Dynamic Thermal Management evenly distributes excess heat across entire amplifier heatsink.
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.
C.L.E.A.N. (Calibrated Level Eliminates Audible Noise) is a patented circuit with in/out clip LEDs to help match a source to amp and optimize output.
