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.

Sealed enclosure

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.

Prime amplification

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.

Awesome system

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

This bass package kicks major butt!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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!!!

Amplifier

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.

Controls:

  • 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.

Connections:

  • 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.

Amplifier Dimensions:

  • Width: 8-1/2"
  • Height: 2"
  • Depth: 7-3/8"

Subwoofer

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.

Dimensions:

  • 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.

It is a great price for the system and it will fit well into my vehicle, I trusted Chad that it will handle the volume and quick beats I like. Chad's Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=24 [ Claude  Sep 03, 2016 ]
Small [ carlos  Aug 19, 2016 ]
Ordered this package to save time matching amps to drivers and enclosures. Wanted something simple to put in, this package delivered that. It sounds amazing, plenty loud with good clerity. [ Dan  Aug 06, 2016 ]

7 questions already asked

Get a 40hz or 60hz test tone. Set the headunit bass setting flat (0), headunit loudness: off; Amp Bass Boost: off; Run the test tone, have the volume set to 75% to 85% of max, gradually increase the gain, when you begin to hear distortion, back it off. Keep in mind, if after you set the gain this way, if you add bass, or bass boost, you will need to account for that. I am still careful depending on the quality levels of your source and how it was recorded. I always listen for distortion, turn it down a bit if I hear it. [ Michael  Aug 08, 2017 ]
The best way to set your gain is to get someone with a distortion detector to test the output of the amp. There's a video on YouTube on how to set your gain to match your subs RMS rating. [ Erick  Aug 08, 2017 ]
I set everything just a tad under halfway on set up. Worked out great for my Mazda 6 [ Clifford  Aug 08, 2017 ]
I dont know the dimensions of your truck. Best bet is to look at the dimensions of the sub and go from there. I mounted the amp to the back of the sub to save space. [ Omar  Jun 05, 2017 ]
I wouldn't expect it to fit. You need a little space for it and a Canyon is a little tight. Unless you're putting it on the seat, I don't think there's sufficient room for it. [ Jesse  Jun 05, 2017 ]
Yes it will. You do not have to use it if you want to use the head controls, but it easier to use quickly. [ William  Apr 20, 2017 ]
It does- I adjusted the sub level on my head unit with the Punch Level Control turned up about half way. You can then use the Punch Control to adjust a little up or down if you need to-super convenient [ Jeremiah  Apr 17, 2017 ]
Well in my case it does, because Im still using the factory head unit.....if you have an aftermarket head unit, depending on what you have, there should be additional settings in the menu for you to adjust the volume as well, but either way yes it does to answer your question. [ Omar  Apr 17, 2017 ]
It doesn't take it's place, mine still works independently. [ Jesse  Apr 17, 2017 ]
As long as it has rca ports on the back of the unit. [ Omar  Mar 11, 2017 ]
No I don't think it will. I have a 86 3/4 ton Chevy and it don't fit. Better get a truck box. [ clyde  Sep 21, 2016 ]
It should with no problem it doesn't take it up much room [ Omar  Sep 21, 2016 ]
I don't think it will. If it did, it would move so little air that you probably wouldn't see the full benefit from the sub. I have it in a full size trunk (2014 Honda Accord) and the thing works HARD when you push it. Great sub, easy install! [ Jesse  Sep 21, 2016 ]
Not sure of your question, but I ordered one of the amp installation kits, ran power, ground, signal, and speaker wires and was in business. Installed in a 2008 Jeep Wrangler and it sounds awesome. [ TODD W  Aug 01, 2016 ]
No. you will need audio copper wire. And a sub wiring kit. [ Herminio  Aug 01, 2016 ]
it is not wired....you will need a wiring kit either 4 gauge or 0 depending on your preference...... I wired this system up with no real issues, but my sub already blew......sucks!!! [ Omar  Aug 01, 2016 ]
No. You will have to make connections from your head unit for signal (RCA) and remote, connections from the AMP to the sub as well as connections for power and ground for the AMP. [ Chris  Aug 01, 2016 ]
For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy  Nov 29, 2015 ]  Staff
