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.
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.
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).
43 - 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.
10-13/16 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 Fiber
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
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
Single 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.
No
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.
.60 cubic feet
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.
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.
1.20 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.
1.25 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.
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.
1.25 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.
3-5/8"
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"
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.

Yes

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.
45 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.
21.00 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.
0.74
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.
0.88
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.
6.80 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.
4.60
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.

One bad punch!

October 25, 2010

Bought this speaker to put in my son's 86 F150. Built a ported box to go behind the seat. After a period of break in (factory recommended) it sounds great. Would recommend it to anyone looking a shallow sub. Got it cheaper here than at a local car audio shop.

Good Subs

August 24, 2010

I Have used Fosgate subs for 15 years and never had a bad thing to say about them. I recently bought the fosgate p3 shallow subs and put them in a 1998 Sonoma single cab and they hit hard. I am very happy with the sound quality and space saving design of the subs. I would suggest them to anyone and when i say they hit i mean it.

The subs sound amazing, they have a good deep bass. fits and sounds really good in small trucks. i have a '03 GMC Sonoma and they really bump it. I can feel my truck vibrating. All my friends enjoy them and say they are the best for shallow subs. I would recommend these.

Great Shallow Mount Subs

February 22, 2011

My first set of shallow mount subs, I have 2 in a narrow box under the back seat in my truck. Only subs I could find rated for the small cubic air space and they hit hard. Powering them with a HiFonics Zeus 2 channel amp. 400 rms @ 2ohm x2. Even with a 2 farad cap my lights dim inside and out when at full blast. Also rare to find a dual coil shallow mount as well.

November 17, 2010

Great for tight places and especially trucks..doesn't pound like a normal 12" sub would but sounds great for the movement it produces...took about 4 months to get broken in..sounds great in my chev crew cab firing down under the back seat...ur not gonna win any top db contests but u should already know this being the sub is a shallow mount.. I run a mono block class D amp that pushes 1100 watts rms and it plays hard..hope this review helps...

2 p3sd412 behind the backseat in 06tacoma 4door

March 10, 2010

The subs are not the cheapest shallow-mount.That being said the subs fit great in my Tacoma. There is no space behind the backseat and i got two of them to fit. They are being pushed by a Hifonics Brutus BXI2010D 2000 Watt D-Class set up on one ohm. Everyone who hears my truck loves it. I beat the system everyday for around 6 months now.

wow. it may be shallow but it sounds deep!

May 4, 2011

i have this in a small bandpass enclosure. Its not the perfect box for it but it really sounds great. I can't believe the movement this thing has! I didn't expect much from it since it was shallow but it sounds great. i would recomend a nice sealed box with a good amp on it. This is perect for people with no space but want the BASS! One rattles my mirrors but if you really want it bangin get 2 or more. Also its DVC! So it has more options or ohm loads on you amp.

A 12 in a Mini Hatchback?

September 21, 2010

This product lives up to its RF name: superb quality, wiring/mounting was a snap, and in a sealed enclosure in a Mini Cooper S Hatchback. Destructive lows and greats mid levels without distortion. I highly recommend this sub for those tight spaces. Just buy it if you're looking for a shallow mount sub, the others I have tried have failed me. You will not find a better bang for your buck. For reference and credibility, I bump a ported Digital Designs 12 (for those who know about car audio quality) in my F150, and this legit compares to the Shallow-mount Rockford Fosgate I put in my wife's Mini Cooper.

Not bad.

February 21, 2010

I like the P3's. They are standard Rockford Quality. They seem to be broken in by now, and they sound pretty good. I have them mounted in a custom box under the rear seat of my Silverado Ext. cab. For space saving they are great, and musically they sound excellent. Just what you would expect from Rockford Fosgate. Far as rap goes they leave a little to be desired. But I dont listen to much rap, so it is not a problem for me. classic rock and country they sound great. They comes in the usual flavors D2 and D4 so that is nice as well. If you are short on space they are the way to go.

These are definitively poor class subs

May 4, 2009

Despite of the good comments and the high tech specs wrote inside, these subs are poor class and should be treated as that. Are long lasting and cheap for the design, but definitively not worth it for a high end sound system.
Pros: Price, Design, Durability.
Cons: Low SQ, Not watt efficient, Distort

Worst subwoofers owned

February 14, 2012

I purchased two of these subs for my 05, dodge ram and blew up both of them. i had them professionally installed and they looked and sounded great for the first month and they were correctly broken in and tuned and both one after another blew. The manufacturer had nothing to say but local dealers said nothing good to say about them and no longer sell the subs. The amp was not even turned up half way and there was no reason for the problems. Horrible quality and not recommended. i now own 2 type s's and no problems yet and they sound great.

Sounds very good for a shallow sub. I have it hooked up to a 2006 punch 325.1 @ 2 ohms with a tsunami 1.2 farad cap. Specs showed the amp puts out 410 watts@ 2 ohms. It's in a Meta S112SE. I'm happy with it. Wont kock your hat off. But for what invested in the system i think its very surprising small package.

Great Bump

May 5, 2009

I have a pair of these puppies hooked up to a Crunch 1400 ground pounder amp in the trunk of my accord (ported box mind you), and i must admit they produce some bumping bass. They are pretty durable considering i've blown up two amps while they were hooked to these. They are rated for 400 rms and i've been running the 700 rms (iffy) from the crunch amp for over three months now and they keep hitting. GREAT VALUE for the price, they make the roof of my car wobble just under half inch.

Wost woofers ever

August 21, 2011

Purchased 2 of these subs, had them professionally installed into my truck, did the recommended month break in and both of them blew within 3 months. Worst subs I've ever owned. Do not purchase. Now have 2 type-ss 12s and couldn't be better.

bang for shallows

March 15, 2010

For being slims they bang. Only had around 500 watts in a dodge ram and sounded great. Don't have them anymore because of I don't have my ram. And i was i could have pushed more power to them, because they were hungry. Love RF and Sonic Electronix

Good Deal

November 14, 2009

These are pretty subs, good clean bass and quick recovery for fast hitting drums in songs. I have a .8 cu ft custom false floor box with pollyfill for my 08 scion xb and a 700w max alpine amp running it. It works great just doesnt hit the real low notes well, probably because its a shallow and possibly because its a sealed box. Good directions and easy to find a place to fit, very efficient too. Good for the price and good if your working with a small space.
