Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
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.
1000 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.
500 watts
Voice Coil(s)
Dual voice coil subs have more wiring flexibility than single voice coils subs; however, single voice coil subwoofers provide easier hookup options for wiring multiple subwoofers in parallel or series. You may also run a dual voice coil (DVC) sub in parallel, series, or combination. A quad voice coil has four voice coils and is equal to two dual voice coil subwoofers as far as wiring goes.
Dual
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
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).
20 - 200 Hz
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".
87 dB
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.
Foam

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

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.
6.375"
Cutout Diameter
The actual diameter of the hole you will need to cut out if you are creating a new mounting location for this speaker, or if you are mounting a subwoofer in a box.
11-1/8"

Rockford fosgate 12 inch

February 20, 2013

Produces a great amount of bass in my two door Tahoe. I have just one in a ported box and it hits harder than my friend's two kicker comps. Does great with lower pitches and can shake my whole car but some higher pitches are barely heard. Great sub and great look but just work on the high notes.

I love these subs. I have two in the trunk of my '99 Eclipse and they hit hard. The best part of them is even when the bass is up really high the treble is still very clear.

Incredible

September 18, 2008

I have a 1993 Geo Storm. My last subwoofer i had in my car was the Audiobahn cheap Dub edition one. And i thought that sounded alright. but then all of my friends bought systems and out did mine. all i did was buy a sony xplod 1000W and one of these. and i think i can keep up with them. my next purchase is a capaciter because if i have my settings over half way it kills my battery. Then i'll be buying another one of these and another 1000w amp.

Hardest hitting subwoofer around

July 11, 2008

I bought two of these about a month ago and let me tell you they rock. I have owned many other brands of woofers and nothing out there in this price range compares to the p3. Not only will it make all the heads turn as you roll through but it is extremely clear. Love this woofer and this site.

I had the older model Hx2's since 99 they final blow.I decide to go back with the P3 basically the same type.I turned heads with Hx2 and these hit just as hard or harder.This is a great sub for a nice price .To the people who say they blow their not hooked up right or your over pushing the rms of the speaker get a little bit lower rms then the sub and they hit just fine.I have 375 watts rms going to each sub.Their being push by a MTX 750 watt amp and they hit real hard.Rockford Fosgate are the only subs I like.

AWESOME SUB

January 17, 2006

I helped my friend pick out a system recently and ended up having him buy a p3 and i have never heard anything quite like this sub before he has a 90 somethin chrysler cirrus and he has to take down his rear view mirror when the bass is up because it will vibrate until it is pointing straight down at the floor. He's got it hooked up to a phoenix gold octane 8.0x1 amp putting out 600 rms. and to say the least it turns heads. Also for the price on this site it is a steal. It is definitely worth the full retail price but i'm not arguing. Also i love the rockford punch series because as the name implies they have a great punch so that you can listen to all kinds of music and get a great response this is especially nice if you listen to more rock than rap.
