Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
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
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
Total RMS Power Handling
This is the total RMS power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total RMS power handling for all of the subs combined.

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 giving your subwoofer(s) 75% - 90% of the recommended RMS rating.
600 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.
1200 watts
Total Peak Power Handling
This is the Total Peak Power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total peak power handling for all of the subs combined.

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.
1200 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.
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
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
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).
26.5 - 250 Hz
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.

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.
Vented / Ported
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
1
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.
Hatchback Style, Angled Back
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
15-1/8"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
19-1/8"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
15-3/4"
Wood Thickness
The thickness of the wood the enclosure is made of, measured in inches.
5/8"
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
1
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.
Black
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.

Because Rockford Fosgate makes a great product and instead of going with a P2 2x12 setup I wanted to have just one woofer so I went with a P3 instead
Matthew N on Jul 27, 2015
Don't knock Rockford until you've experienced these subs for yourself. I don't know much about the older P3's but this new version hit harder than my old JL W6 setup in the past for half the price.
Jason T on Feb 17, 2015
I had already purchased this item from you before and it really rocked! I got stolen though so i am getting another. Thank you for a great product and great service.

The description says that this sub woofer is internally wired to a final impedance of 1 Ohm and I am new to all of this and was wondering what amplifiers would work for this sub woofer?
A shopper on Mar 6, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

As Joseph alluded to, you seek an amplifier that is providing ~600w RMS @1ohm . The matching amp for this driver would be the Rockford Fosgate P500X1BD, but the Pioneer GM-D8601 , RE Audio SA 1000.1, and Rockford Fosgate R750-1D would also be a great match.

Is this amp stable at 1 ohm load and is it good for Fosgate's P3-1X12 loaded enclosure?

Rockford Fosgate P500X1BD
Best Answer: Hi Greg,

Yes, the amplifier is 1ohm stable - this is implied by the fact that it has a 1ohm power rating (in the description). And yes, it is a "good" amp for the P3-1X12, this is why it is recommended in the description of the P3-1X12.

I want to buy an amp and sub for my son. would pairing the rockford fosgate p3-1X12 and the Hifonics BRX1400.1D make a good pair?
A shopper on Dec 22, 2014
Best Answer: No, it's too much power for that one sub. It would be better for the amp to rub the p3 2x12 dual sub setup. But a better amp is the rockford fosgate prime series 1200.1. I saw this sub ran on an amp synopsis and put out 1532 watts rms. Also the cost is around $200. I have one running and Orion HCCA12.2 which is a 2500 rms/5000 watt peak sub. It's a nice amp

can I run a single Rockford fosgate ps3 12 on a jl 750 hd???
A shopper on Aug 26, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

Assuming you are referring to THIS Rockford Fosgate P3-1X12; Yes. You are going to have a nice bit of headroom, but that will benefit both the amp and sub. Just make sure to exercise restraint when really opening up the setup.

What pre-black Friday amp matches best with the Rockford Fosgate P3-1X12? Is there a grille for the sub? I use my trunk daily.
Bryan V on Nov 21, 2014
Best Answer: Anything 1 ohm stable at 500 W RMS or up... for quality go with the matching punch or power series RF amp...

This sub is internally wired in parallel down to a final impedance of 1 Ohm. I have a Kenwood KAC-5001PS amp. Its rated at 500w rms at two ohms. I know it will under power the sub but how will i wire it to 2 ohms?
Nash P on Nov 9, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Nash,

CORRECT ANSWER: Rockford Fosgate P3-1X12 provides a Dual-2ohm sub, internally wired in parallel down to a final impedance of 1 Ohm. It is IMPOSSIBLE to re-wire to a 2ohm final load. Your options are 1ohm [Parallel] or 4ohms [Series] . This is Not the sub you seek.
You may need to instead consider the Rockford Fosgate P1-1X12 or going with a different amp altogether.
