Product Description

Features & Specifications



Rockford Fosgate M5-1000X1 1000 Watt Mono Marine Element Ready Subwoofer Amplifier – Open Box

The Rockford Fosgate M5-1000×1 is a mono amp that can pump out up to 1000 watts of power. This amp is perfect for powering a single subwoofer or a pair of speakers. The M5-1000×1 has a built in crossover that will help you get the most out of your speakers or subwoofer. This amp also features thermal and short circuit protection, so you don’t have to worry about it overheating or blowing out.

Dynamic Strength

The Rockford Fosgate M5-1000X1 amplifier features a next-generation Element Ready design that’s built to withstand the elements. Splash guards on both ends and heavy-duty moulded harnesses with integral sealing gaskets provide the IPX6 rating. For use with Rockford Fosgate UTV audio kits, a new PRESET switch eliminates the need to set up and tune the amp for the best possible experience. M5 amplifiers are based on the popular TM series and feature the same great technologies as the TM series, such as Constant Power, Class-BD, and C.L.E.A.N.

Amplifiers from Rockford Fosgate are known for producing more power than their ratings suggest. The M5 amplifiers are the first in the industry to use the new Dynamic Power ratings, which puts their conservative ratings front and centre. This is real dynamic power, engineered from the ground up and purpose-built to deliver more output where you actually hear it. Both the traditional Continuous Power output and the new Dynamic Power output, both tested in accordance with the CTA-2006 specification, are available. Consider Continuous Power to be the wattage developed on the test bench for comparison to other amplifiers in the same class, and Dynamic Power to be the real-world wattage when connected to a speaker load and listening to music. In any case, these amplifiers are capable of driving any speaker or subwoofer you can throw at them.

Amplifier M5 Series Element Ready

This M5 Series amplifier was designed for marine and powersports applications, with a special “Element Ready” chassis and conformal-coated PC boards for dust and water resistance. With a Dynamic Power rating of 1,000 watts at 1 ohm, the M5-1000X1 amplifier can send up to 750 watts RMS to your marine sub. To get the best bass from your sub and enclosure, adjust the low-pass filter and Rockford Fosgate’s famous Punch boost.

Prepared for the great outdoors

The UV-stable, powder-coated, cast-aluminum heatsink on the Rockford Fosgate M5-1000X1 amplifier helps to prevent corrosion. It is dust, dirt, and water resistant thanks to a special “Element Ready” chassis and conformal-coated PC boards. After being sprayed with 100 litres of water per minute from a distance of 10 feet in all directions for at least 3 minutes, this amp earned its IPX6 water intrusion rating. What exactly does that imply? Whether you’re out on the water or deep in the woods, this amp will deliver dependable power.

Maximum efficiency

The C.L.E.A.N. (Calibrated Level Eliminates Audible Noise) setup system from Rockford Fosgate ensures that your music sounds as clean and powerful as possible. Turn it up until the light turns red, then turn it down until the light goes out. Simply press the Preset button if you’re adding this amp to a Rockford Fosgate UTV audio kit, and it’ll be instantly tuned for maximum performance.
