Sonic Electronix is now carrying the brand new line of Rockford Fosgate Punch P3 Series Car Audio Subwoofers. The P3D4-10 Punch Series 10" Subwoofer has a peak power rating of 1000 watts and a RMS rating of 500 watts. This sub will produce some earth shaking bass and is constructed with an anodized aluminum cone and a vertical attach surround technique. This woofer is also equipped with a 2.5" Voice coil and a protective PVC textured magnet cover. Add some bumps in your trunk and enhance your cars stereo system with this Rockford Fosgate Punch Series Subwoofer.
While built on a long standing history of performance, the punch series woofers can deliver not only the 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
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.
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.
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.
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.

Installed one of these with a RF 500.1D amp in a vented box tuned at 40hz. This thing bangs, it hurts my ears and brain when its turned up. Response is a bit sloppy but that is expected with the vented box. If your looking to keep your bass tight and clean go with a sealed box otherwise go with the vented box to get the most sound out of your sub. I didn't think that one 10" sub could produce this much bass. It shakes my mirrors and probably the peoples mirrors in front of me. If your thinking about getting this sub know that its a great buy, your getting a top quality product from RF that is built to bang.

Amazing sub for a great price
Man can these subs pack a punch. I have 2 of these subs side by side in a sealed box and they hit more frequencies then i expected. Best part is these subs can take a beating. You can run them at the point of distortion if not over the point and they pound hard all day.

I just replaced an Infinity Reference 1060 10" sub with the P3 and the difference is amazing. This sub hits real hard and goes low with little effort. I would recommend this subwoofer for those trying to save space in their trunk and still have enough bass to feel it. Two of these would be off the chart! Great price and fast shipping from sonicelectronix as always. Thanks!

I love these subs!
They're a little weak in the mid range which is to be expected with 10 inches but they pound hard and hit the low freqs. real nice. I beat on these things and they take it well! Very happy! 4.5 stars ....would give them 5 if they hit the mids a little better....had some Polks that did but I blew them...at least these take a pounding. :)

I purchased this 10" sub because I wanted high quality bass, without having to give up much trunk space.
I can tell you, this thing sounds better than when I had 2-12" mid-level RF subs installed. It might not push as much air as 2 12's, but the the sound quality is full and crisp.
In my opinion, it is the perfect balance between having a nice, full stereo sound in your vehicle, while avoiding to sound ghetto by rattling everyone's car around you.
The only thing I would consider when looking to buy this sub, is what kind of music you listen to. This will perform great with most genres, but it does have a little trouble dropping to very low frequencies which are incorporated in some rap songs (in a sealed box, I read you might get a bit better lows in a banpass).

I had the older 10" p2d4, and replaced it with this sub (P3D4-10). It is leaps and bounds more accurate than the p2d4. Best purchaseing decision ever. Put it in a good box. I'm running it on 400wRMS & it is blowing the box to pieces!

Very good subwoofers for small enclosures. Very accurate bass, not muddy at all. Has available grills for behind seat style setups. Also has plenty of room for extra screws in the mounting base. Only improvement that could be made is the size of the push terminal inlets, one or two sizes bigger would be fantastic. Overall though, it's is a wonderful product. (Highly recommended)

Very nice quality product, sturdy and silent core. Delivers deep bass and nice quality sound. Overall the product is what I expected it to be. Performs at high quality when the volume is increase the base does not cut out no clipping. I have had this product before into 12 punch subwoofers. That was years ago and the quality has increased over time.

I currently am running one of these in my 05 Dakota on the new Skar RP1200-1D, and this sub sounds amazing. In the near future, I will be purchasing another one of these to sit beside my current one in a 2.8 cuft box tuned to 35 Hz. I'm excited as ever, and know from 2 years of owning the P3 subwoofer that it will be an astounding setup. These are a got to have if you want some accurate bass in your vehicle. And don't just through 500 watts on these. They can handle 650-750 all day, just tune the amp accordingly. I will update this review once I get my other from sonicelectronix.
