The Rockford Fosgate PBR300X2 Punch amplifier is a quality product from this famous brand name. Punch amplifiers are the biggest selling amplifiers in the automotive category, and their success is down to their superior quality and performance.
The Rockford Fosgate PBR300X2 Punch amplifier has an almost identical specification to the X4, the only difference being that the X2 has just 2 channels, instead of the 4 channels on the X4. It is specifically designed for 2-speaker installation. As such, it is a great choice for bikes or 2-seater cars.
One of the key features of Punch amplifiers is their compact size, something that is important when trying to fit one in places where space is at a premium. The great thing about the Rockford Fosgate PBR300X2 Punch amplifier is that it is built in a really small space without losing sound quality.
Genuine Sound Level
The PBR300X2 produces incredible sound at 150 watts per channel, for a total of 300 watts output. Output is measured by the CEA-2006 standard, so this is a genuine sound level. Speaker harnesses are included with the kit.
One of the problems manufacturers face in delivering such high power levels from a small unit is heat dissipation. This is not just a safety issue. If devices overheat, the sound quality will be affected, and the unit may stop working altogether. Additionally, continual overheating will reduce the lifespan of a device.
Rockford Fosgate have developed what they term a Dynamic Thermal Management system to handle the heat issue. Although this system uses standard components for the heat sink, they are deployed in a way that greatly improves efficiency. Some customers have expressed concern about the levels of heat generated, so it is probably best to install the unit where there is some ventilation available. Overall, the Rockford Fosgate PBR300X2 Punch amplifier is an excellent piece of equipment.
