P2D2-8 Punch P2 Series Subwoofer

When it comes to car subwoofers, Rockford Fosgate raised the bar in terms of high quality affordable subwoofers. These Punch Stage 2 subwoofers are the perfect combination of price and deep bass. The new Punch Stage 2 series will crank out 250 watts of RMS power handling, giving you that nice deep bass without over powering your audio system. The face of the woofer has been upgraded with a kevlar reinforced paper cone that will provide durability and great sound quality. For those long sessions of hard hitting bass, the rubber surround has been manufactured to handle high excursion movements through out the day. With their patented technology the Rockford Fosgate P2D2-8 are the perfect match for those looking for quality bass without breaking the bank.

While built on a long standing history of performance, the punch series woofers can deliver not only 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

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.

CEA-2031 Rockford Fosgate Subwoofers

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.

Rockford Fosgate Stitched Tinsel Leads

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.

Rockford Fosgate VAST Surround

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.

very nice sub

If you dont have much room for a big system but you want bass like one than this is the subs for you I have one in my truck and it sounds amazing I plan to add a second one soon and they handle lows very well

Very impressed

I have a single cab 1st gen S10 this means no room. Went from a shallow mount 10" to one of these mounted in a custom sealed enclosure between the buckets. driven off +/-200RMS this little guy is incredible. great extension both high and low, I'm asking a lot of it trying to fill the mid bass gap left below the cutoff of my 6.5" comp set and it hasn't let me down. Great motor strength (compared to the usual commercial brands) and the low end extension is fantastic. I'm primarily a 70s/80s punk rock listener that likes to get gangster at times. To you this means I ask this sub to do everything imaginable, I originally thought I should order 2 but I'm happy with the one. I should say I'm incredibly impressed with the single. At this price it should be junk and it just isnt.

If I can say one bad thing, The push terminals are a bit tough to get larger gauge (10 and up) wire into, just because of there location. You have to get the angle just right to avoid fraying the wire when pushing it in.

Best Value Ever

Title says it all! I got 2 in a single cab Sierra and man do they beat

Great subs i bought two of these and with my kicker zx500 amp these run great. There really loud and they make my car rattle sometimes. At my high school many people think i have 12's and when i tell them there only 8's there really surprised. My advice don't go cheap when buying subs or amps or box and also wiring it all makes the difference in your audio system. Only con is you might need a capacitor.

2010 dodge ram - Best 8" sub so far!! For the $$

So I bought 2 of these, 1 for each vehicle I own. Firstly I want to say I've tried JL w3 & w1's, infinity and the MTX 8's. This by far is the best 8" I've ever owned! That's not to say a jlw7 won't beat this but that's a whole other price range. This thing hasn't been broken in yet and it POUNDS hard and low! I installed both of these 8's into a Digital Designs DDE-E1508 enclosure which I bought 2 locally for $150 and can't beat the quality! There slot ported enclosures at .72 volume. If you're looking for an 8" at great price this is it!! Rockford makes a great product especially the new 2011 power line with this punch p2! I have this p2 sub with the 6.5" components for front and the 6x9 in rear of my 2010 dodge ram, all purchased here at the best price!

hard hitting bass

I put this sub in my 18" long tube box in my regular 06 chevy colorado and man it hits hard u wouldnt even think it was an 8 people thought i had a 12" sub in my car the way it hit the amp and rms matched with the sub and i got hard hittin bass.

Great sub for small places!

I got two of these subs to put in an old Subaru. I didn't want to take up too much space so I looked up the specks for them from Rockford and built two 0.65 cu. ft ported boxes tuned to 38 Hz. Got them hooked up to an old Rockford amp I had laying around, it pushes about 200w to each sub. All I can say is, WOW! These things hit hard and low. Never had any sub less than a 10 so I was shocked by how much they bumped. You will not hear them from a block away but in the car you will feel them. All this for less than 1.5 cu. ft. of space for both boxes! I have bought and used lots of different brands of car audio produts over the years and I am always blown away by Rockford. The amp on these things is almost 10 years old by the way. Take the time to build the right boxes for these 8 and they will deliver some great sound.

To good to be true

Got 2 of these sub. Built a sealed box for it didn't like it to much so I built a ported box man big difference sound like 2 10s or 12s I recommend this sub if your on a budget or if you don't have room in your car/truck.

Great BANG for the buck

i would highly recommend this sub!
picked up two of these bad boys for my 94 Nissan hard body, built two sealed enclosures to spec, and they sound great!
they give you that repetitious punchy/slapping bass!
very clean sound for the price, i paired the two subs up with a mono block 500 watt rms Rockford amp.

RGood bang for your buck

Rockford 8" Punch Sonis Electronics offers one of if not the best Bang for your Buck. These little babes are a sure fired win. Especially if paired with the Rockford sub. I installed these in my wifes Chrysler 300 and it sounds great. Bravo Zulu to Sonic for their expertiese and knowledge and help in assisting me in picking them out. Steve
