Review 1 of 29 , from Miami, Fl

Price Paid:  $150.00 from ebay

Year / Model Reviewed:
 500.2

Strengths:
This amp is a workhorse. I listen to the music every day on my car for at least 2 hours and the amp is still going strong.

Weaknesses:
Not as loud as I expected from 500 RMS

Summary:
Good amplifier for a basic system. If you want something better get a Rockford Power 1000. I am pushing a 15 Audiobahn high excursion single 4ohm that handles 600 RMS; it is on a sealed enclosure. I have the amp bridged to one channel at 4ohms. So far it has been working very good,and it has not overheated. I have the gain set high because the amp is not loud with less gain. BTW this is with the bass knob all the way up. Anyway I am getting a bandpass box and I am sure that it is going to hit harder.

Review 2 of 29 , from Pomona, Ca . usa

Price Paid:  $750.00 from friend

Year / Model Reviewed:
 99

Strengths:
98 99 ARE THE BEST FOSGATE AMPS

Weaknesses:
NO WEAKNES

Summary:
I read some of the reviews and evry one that bought a newer 500a2 arent having enough power. Thats becuse a 98 and 99 500.2 are difrent.the old 500.2 has a lot more power 250W X 2 AT 4 OHMS. 500W X 2 AT 2 OHMS AND 1000 BRIDGED. IM PUSHING TWO PUNCH HX2 12" IT HITS HARD! THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE IS MY LIGHTS DIMMING EVEN WITH A POWER CAP.

Review 3 of 29

Price Paid:  $300.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
 98/500.2 punch power

Strengths:
strong amp designed for dvc subwoofers the rockford name means good quality

Weaknesses:
Gets hot fast, does not push my 4 ohm subs like a rockford amp should. Crossover cards are horrible, I prefer a crossover knob. amp plays low with gain turned all the way or at 1/2 way. My Boss Riot 4 channel(bridged) pushed the subs almost as hard as the punch amp does in 4 ohm stereo. Boss amp retail $280 and PUNCH amp retail $1000+. The punch amp should blow the boss amp away at that price.

Summary:
Strong amp but it gets really hot it is hooked up to 2 12s. Plays low with gain turned 1/2 way up. This amp has crossover cards and 0-18 db bass boost.
