Rockford Fosgate P2 Series Subwoofer

2 Punches and You're Out!!

When it comes to car subwoofers, Rockford Fosgate raised the bar in terms of high quality affordable subwoofers. These Punch Stage 2 subwoofers are the perfect combination of price and deep bass. The new Punch Stage 2 series will crank out 400 watts of RMS power handling, giving you that nice deep bass without over powering your audio system. The face of the woofer has been upgraded with a kevlar reinforced paper cone that will provide durability and great sound quality. For those long sessions of hard hitting bass, the rubber surround has been manufactured to handle high excursion movements through out the day. With their patented technology the Rockford Fosgate P2D2-12 are the perfect match for those looking for quality bass without breaking the bank.

While built on a long standing history of performance, the punch series woofers can deliver not only output to satisfy you when you want it loud but maintain a level of sound quality for when you really want to "listen" to your music. Taking many design cues from the Power Series, Rockford Fosgate engineers continue to improve the Punch Series year after year making it one of the most sought after woofer lines for music and bass enthusiasts alike. With features like Dual tear & fatigue resistant poly-cotton spider for high strength and anodized aluminum voice coil formers to handle heat buildup in the motor structure under full power situations, these drivers are designed to perform.

 
Anodized Aluminum Voice Coil Former

Anodized Aluminum Voice Coil Former

By using an anodized aluminum voice coil former on their subwoofers, Rockford Fosgate is able to dissipate heat from the voice coil more efficiently. A hot voice coil can melt the adhesive bonds, which will lead to eventual subwoofer failure. The aluminum voice coil former acts as a heat-sink to dissipate thermal build-up on the voice coil cool during high SPL conditions.

 
CEA-2031 Rockford Fosgate Subwoofers

Conforms to CEA-2031

Rockford Fosgate has built this subwoofer to conform to the CEA-2031 loudspeaker power handling industry standards. This means that you can trust the subwoofer to have the capacity to safely handle the continuous (RMS) power rating. Having a CEA-2031 power handling is important when matching a subwoofer to an amplifier because the power ratings are accurate.

 
Rockford Fosgate Stitched Tinsel Leads

Stitched Tinsel Leads

To improve the reliability and performance by reducing fatigue and possible shorting, Rockford Fosgate has stitched the tinsel leads to the spider. The multipoint periodic stitching lead wires reduce the mass of the tinsel leads to spread the stress over a greater area. This improves the reliability and performance of the subwoofer.

 
Rockford Fosgate VAST Surround

VAST: Vertical Attach Surround Technique

In order to increase the surface area of the cone without causing any installation issues, Rockford Fosgate designed the Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST). By redesigning the manner in which the surround adheres to the basket, these speakers gain up to 25% more effective radiating cone area. This improves the nominal efficiency and maximum output.

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Punch P2 (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.
800 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.
400 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.
2 ohms
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
2.25"
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).
26 - 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".
86 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.
13.3 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.
Kevlar Reinforced Pulp (Paper)
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.
Rubber
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
Optimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.02 cubic feet
Optimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal 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.
6.40"
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.
11.22"
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.
26.0 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.
8.15 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.
0.56
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.
3.30 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.
6.50
Efficiency Bandwidth Product (EBP)
This number represents the trade off between having an efficient woofer and one with a wide bandwidth. To calculate this number, take the Fs and divide it by the Qes. If the number is below 50, the woofer is designed for a sealed enclosure only. If it's between 50-100 it can be used in either. Lastly, if it's greater than 100 it's designed for vented enclosures.

Awesome subs!

June 29, 2011

I own two of the model p2's before this one, wow. These subs were set up in a mustang and no lie, they shook my house! It literally knocked the pictures to the floor! I noticed one guy said his subs were overheating his amp. I had that problem too but when I took them by a specialist he said I had them wired for less ohms than my amp could handle. I am so impressed I am adding four more of these. Get a custom box built and they will hit like t1's.

I got King Kong in my Trunk

November 1, 2013

I have a 500 watt amp pushing 2 of these P2 12" subs and man do they pound. I am about to swap the ported box out with a sealed enclosure. The ported just took up too much space in the trunk so the sealed enclosure will be smaller. I am also hoping to get a very strong and clean bass.

Exactly What I've Been Missing

July 10, 2013

Love these subs! The pair of these I bought 3 months ago have delivered the bass I've been craving. After matching the specs to my amplifier, I have had no issues at all with these. I spent about 3 weeks slowly breaking them in, now I see people dancing in the streets to the beat from blocks away! Plus it is always nice to get a bass massage after a hard day at work. :)

These subs hit really hard!

May 24, 2012

I put these subs in an Infinity Reference 1220de box (the original subs stopped working). They're wired @ 2 ohms to a kenwood KAC-9104D amp. This setup SLAMS in the back of my jeep! I would recommend maybe a custom box to go with them instead though, I think my box is a wee bit too small. Anyone who buys these won't regret it!

I have 2 of these in a ported box and they just pound. I've to practically glue the trunk components together because they shake and rattle everything. In terms of durability and such they couldn't be better, I had one for about a year before getting the second and I blasted it as high as I could go with no problem. Also they look great, nothing flashy just a nice looking speaker

Very Crisp! Great Sound Quality!

June 22, 2012

I'm not surprised RF has been making quality product for a long time now, these are no different. I put these in a 1 cu.ft. per chamber sealed box with the Fosgate R500-1D amp and they sounded great... not even a day later someone totaled my customers truck. I dismounted them and put them in a deepwell .92 cu.ft. downfire box for his new truck and they sound even better. That downfire box makes these P2's put down some serious punch in an extended cab truck. You gotta have a truck that can hold a deepwell sub box to capacitate these subs though, as their mounting depth is 6.5in.

I bought 2 of these bad boys and couldn't be happier with my purchase, i have owned a few different sets of subs and the bass from these are the cleanest, i have owned a stage 2 rockford punch amp for some time now and was very impressed with it, these subs didnt fail to impress as well. I recommend these to anyone whether your on a budget or not, they are worth more than what you pay for from Sonic.

NOTE: I have been throbbing these with hip hop music since i got them and they haven't even started to smell warm yet.

BEST BOOM FOR THE BUCK!!!

December 28, 2011

Let me say I started with one of these at 1st becus I'm a jl audio man to heart, but jl's are becoming so exspensive now a days. I was truly amazed at the sound of one of these 12's. So I ordered another and hooked it up and I just had to have another. Yes 3 12's in a sealed box and have not been let down yet. By me in a jl audio man to heart these subs are powered by no other than jl/ series amp. If I told you the watts you wouldn't believe me so need for the negvtive feed back. Bottom line you will be very impressed by this product. The only thing is that I think the (rms) watts are not accurate but still holds enough.

WOW! Great Buy, Great Product!

July 20, 2011

I threw 2 of these in a custom ported box in the back of my Grand Cherokee and hooked up to a 1200 MTX mono amp (which puts out 800w RMS at 2 ohms - perfect match). All I can say is WOW. You can here me coming from 3 blocks away. I've read reviews when people have said the subs overheat the amp. Well, I've played them for 2 hours straight and the amp was basically cold to the touch. AMAZING. Whether you're on a budget or not, I would recommend these subs.

I have two 12' running on a NVX Jad 1200.1 and they are loud and clear, kinda iffy when it comes down to the low notes. Most likely just the wrong cubic feet.

Great Sub

August 29, 2013

I've owned Rockford before and they are worth the money. I used to have a 1200 watt system but then i sold it. I went a while with out a sub and then bought a cheap FLI sub just for some lows with my music because i just want great sound quality. The sub made a huge difference but then i was driving it hard for a while one day and blew it. So i decided to spend a little extra and go back to Rockford. And wow you can really hear a difference. Not so much with rap music because the bass is kind of sloppy. But when it came to other genres such as rock, this thing is amazing. It actually sounds like a bass drum instead of just a sloppy low frequency. Very tight and precise sub. And it has a very stable frequency range. It plays all the frequencies pretty equal so that some lows don't play louder than others. But that wouldn't be the case if you use a tuned ported box.
The moral of the story is.... You get what you pay for when it comes to car audio. The sooner you learn that the better. And thanks to sonicelectonix.com you get it cheap!

Couldn't be happier

August 29, 2011

After modeling several speakers in WinISD, I finally decided on a single P2 12. I built a custom enclosure, slightly larger than the recommended (2 cu. ft. - minus port volume and speaker displacement). The port is (4 inch diameter, by 8.75" in length - cardboard) and tuned at around 37 Hz.

Pros: This P2 sounds so much richer and deeper and louder than my pair of P1 10's in a sealed enclosure. The bass shakes my body, instead of the mirror like 10's would and is more audible even at low listening levels.

Cons: The speaker terminals are kind of far apart, which requires more wire in your box. RF's recommendation for enclosure size and port length are a bit odd. I also thought the trim ring was a little on the heavy side, but not that it matters.

These subs rock really hard, you have be sure to have a custom box that can handle them and give enough breathing. Also don't use too strong of an amp or you will blow these.

P2d212 are amazing

September 18, 2013

I love these subs I bought 6 of them on a t2500-1bd amp and its the hardest hitting system I have ever owned. The lows amazing and the highs are some of the best out of 12's ever!!! My car can literally be heard from miles away and it makes pictures fall of the wall in our house!!

Great Subs

January 15, 2014

What more do I have to say? These subs are great. I expect nothing less from Rockford, they make great products. These subs are awesome for the price. I have 2 of these wired at 2ohms powered by a Pioneer GM-D9601 and they sound great. I have them in an SUV and the bass is real clear and loud. Make sure you don't under power these subs and give them plenty of power they will take every bit of it. I'd suggest doing the big 3 before getting any type of car audio. Don't skimp out and buy anything cheap. If you have the money I'd get a Rockford amp. Although this Pioneer really gives these subs some power. Can't go wrong for the price.

Great Sub, Great Price.

December 15, 2012

I have owned this sub for a couple days now. I’m running a Rockford Fosgate R500-1D amp only about half power to the sub in a sealed box. this thing bumps. Its loud enough to give you quite enough bass but at the time same not over powering my speakers. My Friend had owned 2 12" P2's for about 2 years now without any issues at all and I loved them, so I got rid of my 12" Kicker L7 to get one of these. And the difference is amazing, the clean crisp bass you get from it is great. I would defiantly recommend this sub to anyone looking for great loud bass, sound quality, easy to use/maintain, great price and great looking.
