A perfect system starts off with perfect aftermarket car speakers. If you are a fanatic of a great sounding speaker, then the Rockford Fosgate Punch Series is meant for you. It is a full-range speaker with a flex-fit basket to ensure compatibility. By utilizing slots instead of single sized screw holes, allows for a slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted. This becomes useful if you are mounting the speakers in an odd shaped factory speaker location. The integrated concealed crossover hides the crossover inside the basket, decreasing and simplifying installation time. Minimizing the time between taking the speakers out of the box to installing them in your vehicle, the Punch speakers feature an OEM Adapter plate system that allows full-range speaker to fit in certain openings. The adapter plate features “break-away” tabs that can be removed to fit all speaker sizes.

The Punch series speakers feature VAST (Vertical Attach Surround Technique) which increases a speaker’s effective radiating cone area without complicating installation. The design eliminates the large flat glue surface area which allows the surround to be shifted for increased cone area. With this, nominal efficiency and maximum output capabilities are improved. The P142 is a 4” 2-Way speaker that has all the features mentioned above.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Punch (Rockford Fosgate)
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Pair
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
4"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
2-way
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Dome
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

PEI (Polyetherimide)
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Butyl Rubber
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
60 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
30 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
86.5 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
100 - 22,000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Yes
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
1-3/4"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
4-1/16 x 4-1/16 
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.
No

Replaced JL Audio 3.5" for Dash.

April 8, 2014

I got these to replace 3.5" JL Audio that could not handle the power of my amplifier, and sounded to "tinny". These have a much fuller sound for front staging fill. I had to significantly modify my dash to install them, but I knew this going into it. System consists of: Pioneer X940BT > Audio Control EpiCenter > Audio Control EQL > Audio Control 2XS > Audio Control Matrix Plus and Kicker IX1000.1 for subs, and Kicker IX500.4 for mids and highs. The mids and highs are Rockford T2 6.5" Components for doors and rear deck, sub is a Kicker 12" Solobaric L7.

Great for the price, but might not actually "fit".

September 20, 2012

Purchased these to go into a 1984 Toyota Pick Prerunner. Original factory speakers, aside from being 28 years old, are junk. Quick Fit guide said that these would fit the truck. I started installing car stereos for my brothers and his friends when I was 13, so I've been a Fosgate Fan for the past 20 years (yes, I'm that old). I was excited to find a good deal on a set of 4" Punch 2-way speakers. When the speakers came in, I pulled one out of the box and compared it to the factory speakers. There was an evident size discrepancy. The Fosgates were quite a big bigger than the factory speakers. Right then I knew this was not going to be an easy swap. Now, I'm sure many of you don't know what the factory mounting spaced for an '84 Toyota 2wd Pickup look like, but they're directly below the air vents in a long, hallway like space. After a quick test fit, I was assured these speakers DID NOT fit. If you look at the pics, you'll see t hat there are four elongated mounting spots at the top, bottom and each side of the speaker. All of these had to be removed. I then had to dremel quite a bit of plastic out of each side of the "hallway" the speakers mounted in. I don't have a cordless dremel so it made it very interesting. Once all of that was done, I was able to finagle the speakers into up against the area they were to be mounted. The speakers did come with 8 screws and a hex bit to drive them with. These came in handy and I used two on each speaker. One in the factory mounting area and one in a new spot so the coarse threads of the screws would grab the plastic. Ones it was all said and done, the speakers sounded great. The speakers offer rich mids and amazing highs. If you're getting these to add some "bump and thump" you're doing it wrong. That's what Subs are for. The sound quality is excellent, even from the crappy head unit. TL/ DR: Even when you're told the speakers will fit, they may not so be prepared to do some creative installing or get someone who knows what they're doing to install them. Sound quality is amazing and I'm very happy with the speakers. They're a great compliment to any system!

Great Product

June 17, 2011

I have a 96 Mustang GT with worn out speakers. I wanted something that sounded very clear and powerful. I wanted something that compared to a new cars high end audio system. The speakers did that and more. They are clean and crisp, but aren't too much. The would sound great with subs, but doesn't need them. They have enough bass as it is.

March 13, 2011

I put a set of these into my friend's truck to replace his blown factory speakers, and they sound great for what they are. The idiot who said they had no bass is absolutely correct, these speakers have small cone area, small excursion, and don't take a lot of power. That's all perfectly natural, seeing as these are door speakers, not sub woofers. You should probably keep your ignorance to yourself next time.
