Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Punch P3 (Rockford Fosgate)
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.
1200 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.
600 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
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
2.5"
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).
27.7 - 250 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".
85 dB
Xmax (millimeters)
Typically measured in millimeters, the Xmax value is the measure of a speaker cone's maximum excursion in one direction while maintaining a linear behavior.
16.2 mm
Subwoofer Design
This is the design of the subwoofer or the opening of the subwoofer enclosure. Each design has it's own benefits, whether it is a square, circle, or oval.

Round/Circle: This is the typical and common subwoofer design. They have a round cone and are a circle in design.

Square: These woofers are able to achieve a greater cone area in a smaller space. Because of the greater surface area, some square subwoofers will be louder than a round subwoofer of the same size.

Round / Circle
Main Cone Color
This is the color of the speaker's or subwoofer's cone.
Black
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Anodized Aluminum
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.
Santoprene Rubber
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
Double Stacked
Subwoofer Grille
Most subwoofers are able to accommodate a universal grille; however, some subs include a grille and others have a specific, optional grille available for purchase separately. If "yes", then the subwoofer includes a grille. If "optional (sold separately)" the matching grille will need to be purchased in addition to the sub.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
Re-Cone Kit Available
Some higher end subwoofers have replaceable cone assemblies. In case of a blown woofer, a recone kit allows for a simple replacement, as opposed to purchasing an entire new subwoofer.
No

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

Recommended Enclosure Type
This is the recommended type of enclosure that the subwoofer should be installed into. Some subwoofers are specially designed for particular enclosures.

Sealed: These enclosures completely enclose the air inside the box. These boxes produce a tight bass.

Ported/Vented: These enclosures have a slot of air to escape from the box. The result is a sound that has more "boom".

Bandpass: These are a combination of both sealed and ported enclosures. They can be very efficient, but require tuning for the best response.

Ported / Vented
Sealed
Minimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
0.75 cubic feet
Maximum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.25 cubic feet
Minimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.79 cubic feet
Maximum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.79 cubic feet
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.
6-11/16"
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.
11-1/4"
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.

No

Electromechanical Parameters

Free-Air Resonance (Fs)
The free-air resonance frequency of the subwoofer, measured in Hz. At this frequency the weight of the moving parts is perfectly balanced with the subwoofers suspension system.
27.7 Hz
Equivalent Compliance (Vas)
This is the amount of air that has the same stiffness as the subwoofers suspension. The greater the rating, the lower the stiffness and larger recommended enclosure. It is measured in Liters.
57.7 liters
Total Speaker Q Value (Qts)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including all dimensionless losses. Essentially, a high Qts value (closer to 1.0) means the subwoofer is great for sealed enclosures and a low Qts value (closer to 0) means the woofer is great in vented enclosures. A Qts of around 0.45 means the woofer will work decently in either enclosure type.
0.52
Electrical Q Value (Qes)
The subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including electrical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. The unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 10.
0.57
Electrical Resistance of Voice Coil (Re)
Amount of DC resistance of the subwoofer when measured with an ohm meter. Typically, this will read less than the impedance rating of the subwoofer.
6.40 ohms
Mechanical Q Value (Qms)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including mechanical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. This unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 10.

Rockford fosgate is back

February 5, 2014

This is by far rockford fosgate's best middle range sub. Iv bin running 1 on a JL Audio XD600/1 and iv out bass/preformed some of my friends more expensive sub's... not only that but the clarity and sound quality are mind blowing for a sub in this price range. Rockford fosgate have far out done themselves with this redesign. I pound this thing pretty hard in a sealed box and it never gets hot.. the dust cap only gets a little warm but that tells me that the cooling design is excellent and keeps it nice and cool under stress. Iv bin running with this sud for 4 months now and I can't be more happier.

Well I used to just have a single pioneer 12" and I wanted to upgrade stuff. I did a lot of looking around and decided on these, and well, I got them in a perfect spec box for them, and wow do they pound. I have only had them in about 2 weeks, but so far no problems besides they get warm, but its 90 and humid here in MN right now so thats why. I had a Hifonics ZRX1200.2 Running them but that thing over heated so fast, and I fried it. Well anyways I am not running a RF R1200.1D, and it makes my mirror non usable and gives me a back massage! Love these! Highly recommend them!

I am a bass head in progress and I purchased the Rockford Fosgate P3D4 12 inch and damn does it hit lows, broke it in slowly for about 2 weeks and then unleashed the beast and I am very pleased with the performance and cleanliness of bass. I 110% recommend this sub especially at the price, I have this powered temporarily by a Alpine MRP-M500 at 2ohms and it is a great combo. Thanks again Sonic.

I purchase 2 P3's about two weeks ago and put them in my Tahoe. I have them in a ported box wired down to 1 ohm with a Hifonic 2000watt amp behind them. The low end that they produce is round and accurate to the note. For these to produce that much sound you can't beat the price. I've told my friends that they need to upgrade their subs and get these.

Im loving this sub! Right now I have it in a ported box wired down to 2ohms on my old fosgate amp and at 300watts. It's bumpin' in the back of my lincoln. Definitely going to get a bigger amp and another one of these! I always recomnd Rockford Fosgate to people who aren't sure what to get because they sound good and bump hard. By-the-way, this sub is pretty big so you might have to do some work to get it to fit in boxes you get from Sonic.

August 7, 2013

These subs are just plain great, the quality and sturdiness of these mean subs are what you'd expect from Rockford. I couldn't resist so I turn them up just a little and in about a minute a neighbor came out and said "It's a little loud, can you please turn it down". The funny part is that they were playing at about 5% volume.... I've owned the previous model and these new ones hit harder and cleaner. These subs are worth every single penny.

IF you could get a very large ported box for this than it would slam. But overall great buy and I'm looking to get one more in the feature forsure.

Amazing sub for price range

October 17, 2014

I previously owned the Fosgate P2D4-12 until it was stolen when my car was broken into. It was an awesome sub with great musical detail. At first, I started to just replace it with the same model. But the one thing I wasn't getting with the P2D4-12 was the really low notes. It could reach pretty low, but the lower frequencies require more power to reproduce. I was sending just under 400 watts from a Fosgate power series amp (which was also stolen!)
After contemplating if it was worth an extra $50 to go to the P3D4-12, I decided to do it and also got a Fosgate class d mono amp (Prime R500-1) which came with a birth sheet of 651 watts at 2 ohms.
After a week of breaking it in with some old school Techmaster, I can say that the extra $50 was WELL worth it for the P3 over the P2. I went with a slightly larger box, .9 with some poly fill, and this thing is a BEAST. This single 12 in a sealed box will make your ribcage rattle when you crank it on some heavy bass, and when you dial it in to the right levels it sounds VERY musical and detailed. It hits the very low tones with much more authority than the P2. I would highly recommend!

This sub hits super hard and clean. I owned 2 JL 12" w3's and my one P3D4 hits just as hard. I have a ported box with a 1200 watt amp and is perfect. I can't be more satisfied with this sub.

I have 2 P3s hooked up to a SSL EV2000.2 wired at 4 ohms and 350 RMS to each sub. With only that much wattage, it still bumps pretty hard. I just bought a RF t1000-1bdcp amp and that puts out up to 1500+ RMS x 1 @ 1 ohm. I cant wait to see what these things will be able to do with doubled the rms. I highly recommend these woofers. Even with a smaller amp, they still bump harddd. Highly recommended. Go with RF for everything.

In my town, everybody who has listened to my system has said that it is the best-sounding and hardest-hitting one they have ever heard, even people who have paid thousands for a professional system. I will never buy another brand of speakers or amps. Rockford Fosgate slams, and when I say slams, I mean people can hear me coming from a longggggg way off.

Punch p3 subwoofer

February 18, 2013

I have had this sub for 2 months now and it is great! No problems with running it at 900 watts rms. i beat it up everyday with no complaints. My last pair of sundowns couldnt last as long as this p3.

2 RF banginn' in a Ground Shaker Ported Enclosure

February 17, 2013

Ive had my system build complete for almost 2 months now and i couldnt be happier. This is my second Rockford Fosgate build ive done, and I proudly sponsor their name across my back windshield. I have 2 of the subs in a ported enclosure, and it makes my entire car flex. If you want nice clean punchy sounding bass, Rockford Fosgate's stage 3 subs are the way to go.

Powerful and Punchy!!

October 6, 2012

I bought 2 of these after returning 2 Pioneer Champion Pro series 12's 1000w rms. I wanted more punch from kick drums and bass hits. These totally took care of that! The punch is amazing. They're extremely powerful. I'm feeding them (claimed) 2000w rms from an Autotek Mean Machine 4000.1d. I know the amp is overrated that's why im okay with it. These things are LOUD. Great response and SQ.

However, for me.. the lows aren't all that great. I mean LOW bass like under 45hz. This might be because i have them in a 1.3 cubic foot box even though the recommended is 1.8.

All in all i'm extremely happy with them. Loud, responsive, and great SQ.

Great subs

October 5, 2012

I've owned the p3's in 10s and 12s and they are loud with good sq. I also run rockford amps on all my systems. You can def tell a difference between RF amps and another brand. Most brands overate there wattage and don't come with a real birth sheet of their products like RF, they may be pricey but not ridiculous, i guess u get what u pay for? PS i liked the look of the older models.

Not the best subs ive owned in this price range. But i think it was mostly because of the rockford enclosure i bought them in. These are nice subs. But rockfords pre-fab enclosures suck. They have no room in them and they are made for designer looks rather than sound quality and spl. Rockford amps are just ridiculously priced. But they do what they say they can do. Id never buy a rockford amp though. You can get an amp that does the same thing for half the price of rockfords. But these are over all good subs. They can take a beating.

Ive had Punch subs in the past, not any top of the line Punch but i know and have heard all lines of Punch subs since they have started. I love this dual voice sub and it sounds very powerful and clean. I have it in a sealed enclosure in my accord which sounds better in that vehicle to me than ported. Sonic has great service and the best prices.

Very good sub for the price!

December 14, 2011

I just purchased this sub. I replace an older model Alpine type R12. There was nothing wrong with the alpine, but I just wanted to switch things up. I searched through all of the higher end subs that Sonic sells, and I kept coming back to this one. For 144 bucks I thought what the heck, I'll give it a try. I've known of Fosgate for a long time, but I didn't know what I was missing out on! I'm running one of these subs in a 1.20 cubic foot sealed box on a 600 W rms pioneer amp. So far from what I can tell, this sub will take a lot more juice then what I'm feeding it. For one 12 on 600 watts, this sub is hitting pretty hard. I'm thinking of putting my old MTX thunder 6500d on it and seeing how much louder it will get! You will not be disappointed with this sub. Trust me. Only gave it one star for durability because I haven't had it long enough to find out, although it seems pretty tough, especially with an aluminum cone. Oh yeah, and fosgate is an AMERICAN company!

run at rms

November 6, 2011

I've had a pair of these subs and have gone back and fourth from ported to sealed. I'm running a brz1200.1d and loving the bass. I have gone from an Alpine 3522s (90w rms) to a kenwood kac-8205 (~300w rms over rated) to a memphis pr150.2 (200w rms VERY underated) to a rockford punch 601s (600w rms) and i must say now that im running a true 1200w amp and my whole system is cea compliant it is SO much louder. Don't be stingy and you wont regret it.

These things BANG! Only my second pair of subs but damn, what a difference. Wired to a Rockford Fosgate P1000-1bd bought off Sonic Electronix for way cheaper than Rockford is asking for it.
Very fast shipping and it was free. Also the cheap prices can't beat it. Saved $200 by buying a set of these on this website vs. Rockford once again. Also bought the wiring from Sonic Electronix for about half the price. Thank you SonicElectronix for saving me a butt load of money and the great service. Will definitely be returning and buying again!

Surprisingly Musical Sub

December 19, 2012

Needed a replacement for the Type R subs I kept blowing and decided to try this one.

The P3 trumps the Type R in terms of musical accuracy, it reproduces subtle bass frequencies that the Type R misses. While the Type R produces a little more extreme bass, I prefer the P3, hands down. It sounds terrifi (and its cheaper to boot)

rockford fosgate p3 12

October 5, 2012

These are one of the best speakers i have ever owned when it comes to subs. They are strong and powerful subs. I have not hooked them up yet because i only have one now, and have one on the way. But i do know they will pound, because i already have two p2 12's in my 2011 camaro in a sealed box and they hit hard, and i do not even have my bass knob control up. it is on -8. however, when i install these monsters you will hear from me soon. oh by the way i recommend that you buy these subs from Sonic Electronix, they beat the price by far of other sellers. I went to audio midwest and they wanted 247 dollars for one of these. i got two of them for 264 dollars at Sonic Eletronix can you believe that? This is the place to shop for your car audio my friend.

I just got these about a week ago and WOW! Got 2 on a Hifonics Brutus 1200.1 @ 1 ohm and they hit hard, loud, yet clean. I know these bad boys can take much more than they're rated. The gain is a little over half and the sound is incredible and they're barely moving! Maybe moving up to a larger amp in the future but I'm more than satisfied for now.

I have 2 of these wired to 1 ohm ran by a Hifonics Brutus 1200.1d amp (1200+ watts RMS). And let me just say, WOW. These subs blew my expectations out of the water!!! The included bass knob with the amp is wired in and these bad boys can only be turned up a quarter of way until they blow my ear drums out. The first song I played was Gas Pedal with the volume high and boss knob turned up slightly past 1/4 of the way, and my rear view mirror sank straight down it literally took my breath away. I have these in a HUGE ported Pro Box too. I HIGHLY HIGHLY Recommend these subs to anyone and everyone, they are insane!

This sub is really sturdy and can take a beating veryyyy clean bass and Ive gotten a lot of compliments from it and I only have the gain up half way at most and it flexes my whole car! Upgraded from a previous kicker cvr and also a p1 10 inch of the same model neither can compare this sub is a monster would recommend to anyone this sub will sound good in the right tuned vented/ported box and sealed as well.

P3d412 sub review

November 3, 2014

I put this sub in my daughters 2003 Mustang and it sounds great.
I paired it with the P 500-1 and I'm running it at a 2 ohm load.
The sub is in a ported box, but it still keeps up with just about any
style of music. This sub is by far way better than most subs in
this price range. If you need a great 600 rms sub I feel you could
buy this and be very satisfied.

Rockford Fosgate P3D2-12
Best Answer: Hello,

Your answer is in the specs. =]

Two Rockford Fosgate P3D2/D4-12 will be asking for 1200w RMS. The MS-A5001 is only able to produce ~500~750w RMS @ 2ohms. So, although the MS-A5001 is a Fantastic amplifier, it is only able to put out enough power to drive One sub at its full potential. The best match for two drivers will be the Rockford Fosgate R1200 or NVX JAD120.1; of which, will need the Dual-4ohm version wired down to a 1ohm load. If you wish to go with the JBL amp, you will need Two amps and the Dual-4ohm drivers wired to 2ohms respectively.

CAN I RUN 250 RMS TO POWER THIS SUB?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2014
Best Answer: Well you can if that's what you want to do, but the sub is rated 600 rms. So it will be under powered and needs a lot so it will put some station on your amp.

what kind of amp do you recommend for these subwoofers?
Alex E on Aug 20, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Alex,

With subwoofers, we always recommend CEA Compliant Monoblocks. They are typically the best kind of amp for this application. Two of these, or even One, will work great with amps like the following;

Rockford Fosgate R1200-1D

Hifonics ZRX1800.1D
Best Answer: I can say those subs are awesome for the price but I have mine on the Rockford amp. If it's a true 1800 watt amp then yes that's plenty of power for 2 since you only want 600 watts per speaker continuos. That brings you to 1200 to keep the amp from over heating. On another note that needs to be 1800 at 1 ohm

Best Answer: Hello Nicholas,

You will continue to receive varying answers and vague responses. This is because NO ONE has ANY idea how YOUR specific vehicle is going to react to the Draw of this system. For example, A Mini Cooper will react FAR differently than a Hummer. Unfortunately, your question is far too vague and does not have a "Right" answer. However, ~1200w RMS is a figure where SOME upgrades may be needed.

if I buy the 500x1 mono Rockford amp it does 500 watts rms at 2 ohms and If I wire this to 2 ohms will it be enough to power this sub? the Rockford amps birth sheets are around 600 watts rms
A shopper on Nov 15, 2014
Best Answer: Yes and no. Yes the speaker can handle it. No it is not enough power. I have 2 p3 new edition speakers w/a saz 1500 pushing them bridged at 2ohms. My amp was rated at 2100 rms peak on a meter. That's 1050 pure watts to each speaker. And my amp still clips. These speakers are beast!

Best Answer: Hello, well I know nothing of the NVX outside of it's spec which I just looked up. However I can vouch for the P3D4's. I'm not sure 500 watts will be enough for either speaker. I myself have Saz-1500 which actually puts out 2100 watts rms. At last check I'm putting 800w rms consistently in my speakers and they handle it like a champ. I would go with the P3D4's myself.

Best Answer: Hello,

We wouldn't suggest it . The Power Acoustik RZ1-1500D is likely doing about Half its rated figures, which means it would be UNDERPOWERING the P3D4-12 . We suggest seeking a CEA-Compliant amp, providing the figures needed, to insure you get the performance that matches that of the P3. [It is unwise to match an entry level brand with a performance brand like.]

Best Answer: Hello,

No. The amp is far too much power (1000w RMS @ 2ohms) . The better match would be the Rockford Fosgate P3D2-12 wired up to 4ohms, but then you would be underpowering the driver. We don't suggest the pair.

You will definitely want to consider no more than the Rockford Fosgate P1S2-10. The specs you have provided, for both the amp and enclosure, fit the Rockford Fosgate P1S2-10 well.
