About the Rockford Fosgate 300-Watt Bass Package
All your bass in one place
All your bass in one place
Which sub do I buy? Which amp do I get? Putting a bass system together for your vehicle can be confusing, so we've eliminated the guesswork. This Crutchfield-approved bass package features Rockford Fosgate's R500X1D amplifier and their R1-1X10 sealed enclosure, a great combination that will get you and your car rockin'. Just add wiring and you've got a recipe for deep, satisfying bass.
The rugged sealed R1-1X10 box features 5/8"-thick medium-density fiberboard construction covered with a protective layer of heavy-duty black carpeting. And you can rely on Rockford Fosgate to create an enclosure that'll draw every ounce of bass out of its Prime R1S4-10 10" sub. This 4-ohm sub handles up to 200 watts RMS and features a fiber-reinforced paper-pulp cone and compressed foam surround for big, booming bass.
The Prime Series R500X1D mono amp sends 300 watts RMS to the Prime sub (a little extra power is a good thing), so you can really feel your bass rockin'. You can use the low-pass filter and Rockford Fosgate's famous Punch boost to get the best possible bass from this system in your vehicle. A phase switch gets your subs firing along with your other speakers for maximum impact, while the speaker-level inputs let you hook this amp up to almost any system, even a factory stereo. The included wired remote lets you control the amp's volume level from the front seat.

Rockford Fosgate 300-Watt Bass Package reviews
Absolutely fantastic system. Needed to adjust the gain on the amp a bit to my personal taste, but otherwise it is amazing. Had it installed to a stock radio and previously upgraded Infinity speakers. Bass is thunderous, but it could be more crisp. Overall a wonderful system

Great system. Got for my 04 Jeep Wrangler and sounds amazing. Can't ask for anything more.
Pros: Great system
Cons: None that I can find

This bass package is simply awesome! I recently installed a complete system with Pioneer FH720BT deck, Infinity Kappa component speakers, and Sound Ordinance BP-8 powered subwoofer. The system sounded OK but the bass wasn't crisp and clear enough since the BP-8 was only 80 watts and used an 8" sub with ported enclosure. Been looking for an upgrade for awhile and saw th Rockford Fosgate R500x1d with R1-1x10 bass package for this price. I read the reviews on the individual components and all were positive. When I first installed it and turned it on it immediately fryed the 30 amp fuse used on the Sound Ordinance installation. Once i changed the fuse to 50 amp, this sub woofer turned on simply blew the windows off my 1998 Toyota Camry. This bass package is clean and crisp with power to spare. I'm totally convinced of Rockford Fosgate's commitment to quality. Totally love this set up. I purchased the extra cage protection to protect my subwoofer speaker from being dented since it comes fully exposed with not protection. Finally, I'm totally satisfied with the super clean and crisp bass of this sealed enclosure. I'll never go back to ported if there is enough power to drive a sealed enclosure!
Pros: Super crisp clear bass with no distortion. I still have pleanty of power to spare. I have the gain set at 1/2 and it totally blows the windows off the car.
Cons: The blue led light on the remote dial is really bright. I mounted the dial in a small closable coin compartment to eleminate the glare. It actually made for a nice clean mount. One review said to use a sharpie pen to eliminate the glare but I didn't want to. No cons on the sound or the power. Only bragging rights!!!

More details on the Rockford Fosgate 300-Watt Bass Package
Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Prime R500X1D Class D mono amplifier is designed to power subwoofers. The Class D design and extruded aluminum heatsink allows the amplifier to run cool and efficiently, and results in a small footprint.
CEA 2006 Compliant: The R500X1D's power ratings are measured according to the uniform standards advocated by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards allow you to accurately compare the rated power output and signal to noise ratio of all CEA 2006-compliant amplifiers, even from different brands. Manufacturers who adhere to these standards can display the CEA 2006 logo on their products and packaging. CEA2006 Specifications for this amplifier are:
- 4 Ohms: 300 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms, 14.4 volts, and less than 1% THD+N
- 2 Ohms: 500 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms, 14.4 volts, and less than 1% THD+N
- S/N: 80 dB, measured at 1 watt output (100 dB measured at rated power)
LED Indicator: The amplifier is equipped with an LED power/protect indicator. The LED illuminates blue when the unit is turned on. It illuminates red if the thermal or short circuit protection circuit is engaged, and the amplifier will automatically turn off.
Mounting: The amplifier can be mounted vertically or horizontally using the supplied mounting screws. The amplifier should never be mounted in an engine compartment as this will void the warranty.
- Gain Control: Use the amplifier's gain control to match the output of the source unit. The rotary gain control is labeled 1 to 11 and has a sensitivity range of 150mV to 4V when using a preamp level signal, 450mV to 12V when using a speaker level signal.
- Remote Punch Level Control: The R500X1D includes a wired Remote Punch Level Control, linked to the gain control of the amplifier. The module allows you to remotely control the output level of the amplifier from the dash or center console. The Remote Punch Level Control features a rotary dial, and comes with mounting hardware and an 18' cable.
Note: The Remote Punch Level Control measures approximately 1-3/4" wide (2-5/8" including the mounting flange) x 3/4" high x 1-5/8" deep (2-1/8" deep including the knob and wiring).
- Crossover: The amplifier is equipped with a 12dB/octave Butterworth low-pass crossover. The crossover point is continuously variable from 50 to 250 Hz. This being a subwoofer amp, the crossover is always engaged.
- Phase: The 2-position phase switch allows you to easily reverse the output phase of the amplifier, choose 0° or 180° to match the rest of your vehicle's speaker system.
- Punch EQ: The Punch EQ bass boost circuit is adjustable from 0 (min) to +12dB (max) and centered at 45Hz.
- Power Terminals: The power and ground terminals are nickel-plated set screw terminals and will accommodate up to 4 AWG power and ground wires. (Rockford Fosgate recommends 8 AWG minimum.)
Fuse: An external 50-amp fuse (not included) must be installed on the power wire at the battery. If a wiring kit is used which includes a fuse with a value other than 50-amps, the original should be replaced with a 50-amp fuse. When not using a wiring kit, the v6-MANL fuse holder (item number 120MANL, sold separately) and MANL50 50-amp fuse (item number 120MANL50, sold separately) can be used.
- Remote Turn-On Terminal: The remote turn-on terminal is a nickel-plated set screw terminal that will accommodate up to an 8 AWG wire. It's used to remotely turn the amplifier on and off.
- Speaker Terminals: The one pair of speaker outputs is nickel-plated set screw terminals what will accommodate up to 8 AWG speaker wire.
- RCA Input Jacks: The industry standard RCA jacks provide an easy connection for preamp level input. They are nickel-plated to resist signal degradation caused by corrosion.
- Speaker Level Input: A speaker level input harness is included, making it easier to add the amplifier to a factory radio or to a receiver with no preamp outputs.
- RCA Output Jacks: A pair of RCA pass-thru jacks provides a convenient source for daisy-chaining an additional amplifier without running an extra set of RCA cables from the front of your vehicle to the amplifier location.
- Wired Remote: An RJ-25 jack is used with the included Remote Punch Level Control.
- Width: 8-1/2"
- Height: 2"
- Depth: 7-3/8"
Enclosure: The Rockford Fosgate Prime R1-1X10 is a sealed enclosure constructed of 5/8" MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard). The enclosure is covered with high density black carpeting. The sealed enclosure features high current compression terminals on the left side of the box (when facing the woofer). The terminals will accommodate up to 12 AWG speaker wire and present a 4-ohm load to your amplifier.
- Width: 16"
- Height: 12-1/8"
- Depth (base): 12-1/8" (12-7/8" including the subwoofer)
- Depth (top): 7-1/8" (7-7/8" including the subwoofer)
Woofer: The R1-1X10 enclosure is loaded with a single Rockford Fosgate Prime R1S4-10 subwoofer. The R1S4-10 is a 10-inch, 4-ohm single voice coil subwoofer with a fiber reinforced painted paper-pulp cone and compressed foam surround.
CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R1S4-10 subwoofer conforms to CEA-2031 industry standards. This means the subwoofer has the capacity to handle its rated power under continuous demand, not instantaneous power handling, that over time, can damage voice coils.
