Picked up an older Rockford Fosgate RFP-2000 High Current home amp

I have the RF2000 amplifier and used to own the pre-amp.  This one doesn't  have the rack mounting nor the "pro" Mic. type inputs.  It works ok and I'm using it in bridged mono mode.   There is some static sound heard when output is low.  Anybody have a service manual connection to share.  I think it is a problem with the RCA inputs...thanks.

 

There is next to no info and definitely no service manuals to speak of for these.  What you find online is pretty much it.  I have a schematic for one and some very basic info I can attach I think.  What worked for me was replacing all of the smaller electrolytic caps on the main board and power supply board and I left the two large ones alone.  Some of the caps you won't be able to find so you just step them up slightly in voltage and capacitance an call it good.  Once these finally quit working or the MOSFET's fail, they'll make pretty decoration I guess.  I hardly use mine since I have the new Onkyo Reference amp and my Carver M-1.0t amp.

@Smitherean    I   THINK (capitals for a reason) @avguytx may have a schematic. Please don't hold it against me if I'm wrong.

Sorry @avguytx I did not see your above post for some reason.

""""Punch 45, 75 and 150's""""

 

I had all of those in an 82 monte carlo.  Fosgate subs.  Alpine speakers and deck.  Alpine multidisc changer in the trunk.    Great times

 

The back seat was A Treat.  2 15" Fosgate Punch subs firing through the back seat.   I removed all fire protection material and some of the back seat foam material.  Baddest bass I ever had.

 

The Alpine deck was the top of the line at the time and had dbx.

That would have been the Alpine 7347 if you are talkin mid to late 80's.  Nice cassette deck.  I ran a Nakamichi TD-700 with the Alpine 3015 Computer Equalizer in that time frame with a pair of Alpine 3502 amplifiers.

Yep.  That is it.  Had that one for two years of high school and 8 years of college.
