Audio experts, HELP!
Right now I am running two kicker solobaric L7s (10s) with a rockford fosgate 500.1

my boy is willing to sell me his bd1000a1 rockford amp

my question:

is this going to be a direct replacemnt? will i need anything? Any extra wiring or anything? or is it just plug and play?

also, will i notice a significant difference in bass? thanks guys

(moderators: please give me 20 minutes in the general forum because the ICE section is dead)

come on fellas, someones gotta know

you gotta check
it should be a direct replacement because you most likely have a 4 guage power wire running. That is really all that you have to worry about anyway. Just the power wire and the fuse. Make sure that it is high enough.

I will check on that

My cousin told me i might need a "cap"... you know anything about that?

like a farad cap. Those are good when you are running a lot of power. If you have an amp that is that powerful then you should probably get one because it stores power so that when the music calls for it it can deliver enough power to your subs without draining from the cars electrical system. You can see this in cars that have high wattage systems when the bass hits hard the lights dim inside and out. I am not sure about xenon though. I have never seen it dim before.

Will I need one of them? I dont want to get it unless i need it... is 1000.1 amp too much power without it?

The only to find out if u need it is to run w/o one. If lights dim or u lose volume when accelerating or braking then a cap might help.
