Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R600-4D

by Buck Pomerantz
Rockford Fosgate

My system has plenty of power. Who needs an amp?

You might think you don't need an amp because you have a 400-watt system in your car, or because your new stereo puts out 50 watts a channel. But those are peak wattage ratings, which may boil down to 15 or 20 watts per channel, using the more realistic RMS rating. An amp sends your speakers the power they need to deliver your music with clarity and impact, whether you're using factory speakers or high-performance components. And low-frequency reproduction requires lots of power, so an amp is an absolute must if you're adding a sub to your system.

Rockford Fosgate packs more power per square inch into their Prime Class D amps than almost any other amplifier made, so you can put more music power in your vehicle's limited space. Your music will play loud and clear with one of these reliable and cool-running amps. The R600-4D 4-channel amp puts out 100 watts RMS per channel to each of your full-range speakers or components, giving them plenty of juice to rock. Or, you can use the front channels of the R600-4D for your front speakers while using the rear channels bridged to run a sub with up to 300 watts RMS, which ought to really get your ride rolling.

Clean power, extensive controls
Rockford Fosgate designed Prime amps to deliver Power Output Without Excessive Regulation (POWER), which means they'll respond quickly to the peak demands that you may throw at your system. High- and low-pass filters, along with Rockford Fosgate's famous Punch bass boost, let you tune your speakers for maximum performance, so your driver's seat will become your favorite place for listening .

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Prime R600-4D is a 4-channel full-range Class D amplifier. It is optimized to power a full-range front/rear speaker system. You can also bridge the front and/or rear channels to run a subwoofer or two. The Class D design is very efficient with a cast aluminum heatsink to keep it in a small footprint.

CEA 2006 Compliant: The R600-4D's power ratings are measured according to the strict standards dictated by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards allow you to accurately compare the rated power output of all CEA 2006-compliant amplifiers, even different brands. Manufacturers who adhere to the standards can display the CEA 2006 logo on their products and packaging. The RMS power output is as follows (measured with a 14.4 volt input, <1% THD+N, 20 Hz-20 kHz):

  • 4-Ohm: 100 watts x 4
  • 2-Ohm: 150 watts x 4
  • Bridged (4-Ohm): 300 watts x 2

LED Indicator: The amplifier is equipped with a top-mounted LED indicator which illuminates blue when the unit is turned on. The LED illuminates red when a protection circuit engages (short circuit or too low an impedance is detected at the speaker connections). The amplifier automatically turns off if this occurs.

Mounting: The amplifier can be mounted vertically, horizontally, or inverted using the supplied mounting screws; horizontal mounting (right side up) will provide the best cooling.

Controls

Independent Controls: The R600-4D has independent, top-mounted controls for the front and rear channels. The controls include:

  • Gain Control: The amplifier has rotary gain controls (0 to 11) for front and rear channels.
  • Crossovers: The amplifier features independent Butterworth crossovers for the front and rear channels. Each crossover can be set for low-pass, high pass, or all-pass (full range). The crossover frequency is continuously variable from 50-250 Hz with a slope of 12 dB per octave.

Punch EQ: The rear channel has an independent Punch EQ (bass boost) control that works with the crossover switch. When the rear channel crossover is set to low-pass, the Punch EQ can add a bass boost, centered at 45 Hz, from 0 dB to +18 dB.

2/4 CH Switch: When the 2/4 CH switch is set to the 2 CH position, the inputs are switched to a 2-channel mode. The signal on the front input feeds all four output channels, however, you lose front to rear fading capability. In the 4 CH position, the amp uses both front and rear inputs and fading capability is restored.

Connections

Power Terminals: The power and ground terminals are nickel-plated set-screw terminals, and will accommodate up to 4-gauge wire. The set screws can be tightened/loosened with the supplied 3mm hex key.

Fuses: The amplifier does not have on-board fuses. A 60A fuse should be placed on the power wire within 18" of the battery.

Remote Turn-On Terminal: The remote turn-on terminal is a nickel-plated set-screw terminal that will accommodate up to 8-gauge wire. The set screws can be tightened/loosened with the supplied 3mm hex key.

Speaker Terminals: The speaker terminals are nickel-plated set-screw terminals that will accommodate up to 8-gauge wire. The set screws can be tightened/loosened with the supplied 3mm hex key.

RCA Input Jacks: There are two pairs of RCA input jacks for the front and rear channels. They are nickel-plated to resist signal degradation caused by corrosion.

RCA Pass-Thru Jacks: The nickel-plated RCA pass-thru jack provides a convenient source for daisy-chaining an additional amplifier without running an extra set of RCA cables from the front of the vehicle to the amplifier location.
