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
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.
1.25 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
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.
1.79 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.
5.60
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.

JBL MS-A5001
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.

could you run 500 watts to this sub and be alright?
Scott A on Jun 10, 2015
Best Answer: Yes. I'm using a AudioPipe 1000.1 Class D mono. But I used a pioneer 850x2 to break it in and one channel only pushed max like 450 and sounded pretty good. But for full potential more is better but you will be happy with 500 long as it's truly pushing500.

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

BRX1116.1D VS PPI P1000.1? Only powering 1 P3d4-12 in a sealed box. I like the idea of having headroom to not overwork the amp and for possibly going to two subs in the future (2 different subs rated to fit the output of the amp)

Best Answer: I would go for the PPI unless the BRX has a specific feature you need for your setup. The PPI is rated for more power and has a cleaner signal to noise ratio. My PPI 900.4 and 1000.1 have been going strong for a few years being played every day. Make sure you have a clean signal going in and let the amp do its job. My audio philosophy is to save money on amps and fancy speakers and put more into a good signal processor and installation materials.. Good luck!

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: It would be a good idea to go with a extra battery, but it is possible to run these without a battery. Although it can be complicated and costly it is the best way to wire your system. Especially because Honda's batteries are not very large in comparison to my trucks dual battery configuration. I went with the Hifonics Brutus BRX 1100.1D Super D Class amplifier. It has provided high quality performance at a price point that cannot be beaten in my mind. I have owned Hifonics amps before and they are all still running fine, Although, It lacks the bells and whistles and name recognition of the more expensive amps for a mid level system build it is the right choice.

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.

Best Answer: At this point you are just looking at specifics. Looks, larger or smaller profile, that's really about it. I love my current setup (P3D4-12 as well). You'll never notice 50rms in real life situations. Maybe in a perfect lab situation. I needed smaller form factor to fit it under my drivers seat.

Best Answer: Hey Mark,

The Rockford Fosgate P3D4-12 is a dual 4 ohm voice coil so what that means is you can only wire it to 2ohm or 8 ohm load. If you wanted to wire it to 4 ohm load then you need to get the version with the dual 2 ohm voice coil. That way you can wire it to 1 ohm or 4 ohm load. I hope this makes sense and I did not confuse you. Please understand with any dual ohm voice coil sub regardless of brand the ohm rating on it can be doubled or cut in half depending on if you wire it in parallel or series.

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.

Power Acoustik RZ1-1500D
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.]

Will this be a good amplifier to power two of the Rockford Fosgate Punch P3D4-12 subwoofers, if wired in 1 Ohm configuration?

Best Answer: You will get just enough power to run them. A ported box would allow this amp to do well as the box will allow easier air movement allowing the subs more excursion with less power. For the price you will be happy

would it be alright to run only 500 watts to this sub? its close to rated.

Best Answer: Hello Scott,

Yes, that is fine, provided it is a proper "quality" amplifier with a proper signal going to and from it.

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.

Best Answer: Hello,

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.
