Overview

The T500-1bdCP is based on the legendary T500-1bd amplifier design with a proprietary "Constant Power" configuration delivering up to 25% more power (Watts) across all impedance loads. The listening experience is cleaner, louder and more impressive than ever before. With the T500-1bdCP, you can now use an "under-the-seat" dedicated subwoofer amplifier to drive two 4-Ohm DVC subwoofers. This amp will provide enough bass to separate you from those envious car audio geeks.

INSANE!

I got this beautiful piece of equipment right when it came out some years ago. (Btw still got it) I got it paired with 2-12" dual ported infinity slipstream box and 2- 5 1/4 " and two 6×9s also by infinity If your looking for the most ridiculously loud awesome and clear sound that will guaranteed put every person(s) you come across speechless.. the way of describe the power of this thing is other worldly.. I would get out of my ride still feeling the full weight of its strength hands down best Ive ever heard/felt. Peace, and thanks Rockford keep it up!

T500-1bdcp amp

I've had the T500x1 for a little over a year and have it paired with a P3 12inch sub at 1 ohm. I love the amount of power and sound that I get with these two and also if you have a EQ knob attached as well It comes in handy for those songs that need a little more punch. I definitely would recommend getting this amp. It never has failed or even cut out once for me.
