Slim Box For Big Bass

The P3S-1X12 sealed enclosure was designed specifically to fit in the space behind many regular truck cab seats. It comes preloaded with a single 12" Punch Stage 3 shallow dual voice coil subwoofer that can handle up to 400 watts RMS. The enclosure is wired to a low 1-ohm final impedance. It will drive your amp to its maximum. Just make sure you pair it with a 1-ohm stable amplifier. If you're looking to save or have minimal space, Rockford Fosgate's Punch PBR300X1 amp is a perfect match for this enclosure, generating 300 watts RMS at 1 ohm. The enclosure is constructed with 1/2" medium density fiberboard covered with heavy-duty carpet.

  • 12" 1 Ohm Stage 3 Series Subwoofer
  • Power Handling:
    • Peak: 800 watts
    • RMS: 100 - 400 watts
  • Final Impedance: 1 Ohm
  • Anodized aluminum cone
  • M-Roll Santopren Surround
  • Low-profile frame
  • Frequency response: 34-250 Hz
  • Sensitivity: 85dB

  • Sealed Truck-Style Enclosure
  • Subwoofer cutout diameter: 12"
  • Color is Black
  • Spring post connectors
  • Dimensions: 3-3/8"TD x 6-3/8"BD x 27-1/2"W x 13-5/8"H

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Punch P3 Shallow Mount (Rockford Fosgate)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
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.
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.
1 ohms
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
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
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.
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
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.

Enclosure Specifications

Box Type
Represents the style of the enclosure. Be sure to purchase the appropriate enclosure type and internal volume that will be compatible with your subwoofer's recommendation.

Sealed - Sealed boxes are those that have no holes or vents in it. The only hole in a sealed box is where the subwoofer is installed. Smaller sealed boxes require more power than a larger sealed box. They provide a tight, accurate bass, while the larger sealed enclosures provide a "boomier" and louder bass.

Ported / Vented - Ported/Vented Enclosures provide an even boomier, louder bass, but less accurate then a small, sealed box. Ported enclosures typically require more airspace per sub and also less power output from an amplifier to perform correctly.

Bandpass - Bandpass enclosures make subwoofers perform efficiently, but loose. The bass is not as "boomy" as a ported enclosure nor as punchy as a sealed enclosure. Bandpass enclosures work well with lower to mid-level subwoofers.
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
Second Depth
The second depth is used only when the box is slanted or angled. This value is the top measurement and it is measured in inches.
Wood Thickness
The thickness of the wood the enclosure is made of, measured in inches.
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
Terminal Type
Spring clip terminals work best with bare wire connections with small-gauge speaker wire, or pin-type connectors.

Binding post terminals are a sturdier, more versatile type of speaker terminal. Because binding post terminals are are threaded, you can tighten them down against the wire or connector for a tight, clean connection. The most popular style of binding post terminals is known as a "5-way binding post". This type can accept bare wire, or any of the common speaker wire connectors. Binding posts with the option to be used with banana clips are even more versatile

Spring posts are a hybrid of the two. Instead of using a thread and "screwing" them tight, they use a spring to allow the wire to fit and tighten against the terminal.

Binding posts
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Box Finish
The material used on the outside of the box. Most boxes are carpeted to prevent exterior scratches; however vinyl is popular as it can often be color-matched to a near exact look of your leather factory interior.

Good Value

December 8, 2013

I like RF products and have owned many over the years. This is not one of their high end products, but it fits perfectly with the price point. As long as you have the right expectation level, this subwoofer will do what it is intended. The overall fit/ finish/materials/looks is very good. I would recommend this product for a solid foundation to a great sounding midrange level system.

Great Sub for Small Space!

November 29, 2013

I purchased this sub along with the RF PBR300X1 amplifier to go into my 2005 Ford Ranger XLT Regular Cab. This sub is a fantastic starter subwoofer for someone who is short on space! The amplifier with the optional RF PEQ bass knob pushes this sub to its MAX! Not to mention that is wired down to a one ohm impedance. Also got the Kicker DPK10 amplifier kit to match. This sub makes good lows (this is not a sub for HUGE curb-busting, roof-flexing, glass-shattering bass), but it sure as heck does it's job on the lows. I could have exceeded the RMS but decided for a first system, I would match. In closing, are you looking for a good sub in a pre-fab enclosure, simply plug and play? Then put it in the CART!

Excelent P/U Tundra Crew Cab Box

December 11, 2012

Sounds EXCELLENT!!! I have tried about 4 different combos in my trucck and this is by far the best. It is so small that it barely takes up any room behind the rear seat. I loose maybe 1" of seat adjustment. I could not find a box this thin!

The truck I bought already had the same model in 1x10, blew after two years. Wanted to give it another try with the 1x12, and the 3 year protection plan

no better equipment out there time tested and durable
john s on Dec 7, 2014
if i have an amp that puts 800W RMS out at 1 OHM, will it hurt this sub because it only handles 100-400RMS?
Sean S on Nov 9, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, it can cause damage to the voice coil assembly. You can probably get away with dialing gain all the way down and jeeping volime moderate, but that would defeat the purpose.

Can I run this with an old school punch 60i amp? Thanks in advance
David W on Nov 18, 2015
Best Answer: Hi David,

If you can, can you please provide us the proper Model Number of the amplifier. Unfortunately a description, with the series, doesn't tell us what amplifier it is so we can't provide an accurate response.
