About the Rockford Fosgate Power T15002

Massive, thundering Rockford Fosgate Power series amps — with their fine-tuned audio controls, extreme durability, and proprietary technologies (like TRANS-ana circuitry for ultra-clean signal transfer and MEHSA for cool-running power) — are capable of stronger, more reliable performance than most other amplifiers on the market.

Massive, thundering Rockford Fosgate Power series amps — with their fine-tuned audio controls, extreme durability, and proprietary technologies (like TRANS-ana circuitry for ultra-clean signal transfer and MEHSA for cool-running power) — are capable of stronger, more reliable performance than most other amplifiers on the market.

The Power T15002 will drive your component speakers with two channels of 250 watts RMS; switch it to mono operation, and your subs will thrive on 1000 watts RMS. If you're into multiple woofer setups, the T15002 will operate safely at 1-ohm impedance in stereo, cranking out an impressive 750 watts per channel. And, thanks to its efficient design, this powerhouse will maintain steady power flow and safe operating temperature under heavy loads, saving your music from clipping and distortion.

Rockford Fosgate gives you the tools to harness this awesome power. Variable high- and low-pass filters (with selectable 12- or 24 dB per octave slopes) let you decide exactly which frequencies to send to your speakers. Para-Punch tunes the bass to perfection with up to 18 dB of bass boost (variable from 35-70 Hz), controlled by the dash-mountable remote. The subsonic filter (at 28 Hz) can be activated to clean out ultra-low bass for improved performance.

Features

1-Ohm Stable: The Rockford Fosgate Power Series T15002 amplifier is capable of accepting a speaker load down to 1-ohm in stereo or 2-ohms bridged mono. This allows you to obtain maximum power for bridging or multiple speaker configurations.

3-Stage Convection Cooling: The amp is cooled by a 3-stage thermal design that consists of a 3-speed variable fan, an integrated PCB plenum, and focused mass heat distribution utilizing a highly efficient cast aluminum heatsink. This superior design keeps the amp's internal components cool, maximizes the amp's potential, reduces distortion, and increases efficiency.

TOPAZ: TOPAZ, an acronym for Tracking Operation Pre-Amplifier Zone, is a patented circuit that eliminates ground loops by referencing signal ground from the first component in the chain (usually the source unit). About 80% of noise problems are created by ground loops. Eliminating ground loops results in a 30-40dB improvement of the isolation between input ground and chassis ground.

NOMAD: The amplifier utilizes an intelligent protection circuit called NOMAD (NOn-Multiplying Advanced Decision), which uses an analog computer to make real-time decisions regarding temperature, voltage, current, and impedance. The result is an amplifier with "intelligent" protection that will protect itself, but will not limit the performance of the amp.

DSM (Discrete Surface Mount): In the manufacturing process high speed robotics are used to place 0% tolerance resistors and large board traces providing greater reliability and efficiency.

Stealth Controls/Connections: All of the amplifier's connections and controls are located on the front panel. The cover conceals the wires for an ultra-clean installation, and is easily removable to give you access to the controls.

Built-in ANL Fuse: A 250-amp ANL fuse comes installed in the top panel of the amp under the removable cover. The fuse is easily accessible in case of failure.

Internal Crossover: The amp features a built-in variable crossover with selectable frequency ranges, slopes and operating modes. A frequency multiplier lets you select one of two frequency ranges: 40Hz to 400Hz in the x1 position and 400Hz to 4000Hz in the x10 position. You can choose a Butterworth crossover with a 12dB/octave slope or a Linkwitz-Riley crossover with a slope of 24dB/octave. A 3-way switch lets you set the crossover for low-pass, high-pass, or all-pass (full range) operation.

Infrasonic Filter: The infrasonic (or subsonic) filter is a 12dB/octave high-pass filter designed to prevent frequencies below 28 Hz from being applied to the speaker from the amplifier. When activated, the infrasonic filter eliminates super-low frequencies that are potentially damaging to the speaker and require tremendous amplifier power to reproduce. Consequently, the filter improves performance and power handling, especially with vented subwoofer enclosures.

Para-Punch Remote Bass Module: The Para-Punch Remote Bass dual-control module helps overcome road noise and correct for acoustical deficiencies in the listening environment. The Para-Punch Bass control has a narrow band adjustment, variable from 0dB to +18dB with a Gyrator-based Punch EQ that eliminates frequency shift with boost. The other control is used for adjusting the center frequency, variable from 35Hz to 70Hz. Using the supplied mounting bracket, the module can be mounted in any convenient location under your vehicle's dash. You can also remove the cover and flush-mount the module in a 2" wide x 7/8" high cutout in the dash. With the cover, the remote bass module is 2.285" wide, 1.211" tall and 1.507" deep (1.99" including knobs).

LED Indicators: Three LEDs are located on the top panel of the amplifier to indicate the following:

  • Power: glows blue when the unit is turned on
  • Thermal: glows red if the amplifier reaches the third stage of thermal protection; the amp will shut down to cool when this occurs
  • Protect: glows yellow if a short circuit or too low of an impedance is detected at the speaker connections; the amp will automatically shut down if this occurs

Inputs and Outputs Notes

Power/Ground Terminals: The Power T15002 features heavy-duty, platinum-plated power and ground set-screw connectors that will accommodate up to 1/0-gauge bare wire. The connectors are angled downward to make it easier to conceal the wires under the removable cover. Wire reducers are supplied to allow you to securely install 4-gauge wire if necessary. A Phillips-head screwdriver (not supplied) is required to tighten/loosen the set screws.

Remote Turn-On Terminal: The amp provides a platinum-plated remote turn-on set-screw terminal for up to 12-gauge bare wire. A small Phillips-head screwdriver is required to tighten/loosen the set screw.

Speaker Terminals: The heavy-duty, nickel-plated Captive C-clamp wire connectors can accept bare wire sizes from 8-gauge to 18-gauge. A Phillips-head or slotted screwdriver is required to tighten/loosen the terminals.

RCA Pass-Thru Jacks: The pass-thru jacks provide 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. The pass-thru jacks can be independently set for low-pass, high-pass, or all-pass (full range) at the same frequency selected for the main crossover.

Remote Bass: A female RJ-45 phone jack is provided for connecting the cable for the supplied Para-Punch Remote Bass module.

Specifications Notes

CEA-2006 Compliant: The specifications given by Rockford Fosgate for the Power T15002 amplifier comply with the new CEA-2006 Amplifier Power Standard from the CEA (Consumer Electronics Association). All manufacturers who comply with the standard can display the CEA-2006 logo on their product.

Performance Verification Certificate: Each amplifier comes with a Performance Verification Certificate which lists the results of a 10-point performance inspection and lists the amplifier's measured power output. The measured power output typically exceeds the amp's rated power.

Rated Power Specifications (at 14.4 volts):

  • 4 ohm load per channel: 250 watts x 2
  • 2 ohm load per channel: 500 watts x 2
  • 1 ohm load per channel: 750 watts x 2
  • 4 ohm load bridged (mono): 1000 watts x 1
  • 2 ohm load bridged (mono): 1500 watts x 1

Wiring Recommendations

Fuse Recommendations: The T15002 amplifier is equipped with a 250-amp ANL fuse installed in the chassis. The recommended Streetwires 1/0-gauge amplifier wiring kit (item # 211PS00R) contains a 200-amp ANL fuse. In order to meet the fuse requirements of the amplifier, it is recommended that you replace the 200-amp fuse in the wiring kit with a fuse of equal or higher amp rating. Note: Streetwires does not manufacture a 250-amp ANL fuse, so you will need to use a 300-amp fuse.

Battery/Alternator: Because of the high current draw of the amplifier, you should check your alternator and battery condition to ensure that the electrical system has enough capacity to handle the increased load of your stereo system. For optimum performance, use of a heavy-duty battery and energy storage capacitor are recommended.
