    Rockford Fosgate Punch Series Subwoofers

    Sonic Electronix is now carrying the brand new line of Rockford Fosgate Punch P3 Series Car Audio Subwoofers. The P3D4-12 Punch Series 12" Subwoofer has a peak power rating of 1200 watts and a RMS rating of 600 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

    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.

    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
    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
    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

    Rockford fosgate is back

    February 5, 2014

    This is by far rockford fosgate's best middle range sub. Iv bin running 1 on a JL Audio XD600/1 and iv out bass/preformed some of my friends more expensive sub's... not only that but the clarity and sound quality are mind blowing for a sub in this price range. Rockford fosgate have far out done themselves with this redesign. I pound this thing pretty hard in a sealed box and it never gets hot.. the dust cap only gets a little warm but that tells me that the cooling design is excellent and keeps it nice and cool under stress. Iv bin running with this sud for 4 months now and I can't be more happier.

    Best Sub I've Ever Owned

    April 8, 2011

    I have 2 of these hooked to a hifonics brutus 1600 watt amp at 1 ohm and they slam. I have had a lot of different subs and by far Rockford has my vote.

    Literally the best bang for your buck.

    December 17, 2014

    I am a bass head in progress and I purchased the Rockford Fosgate P3D4 12 inch and damn does it hit lows, broke it in slowly for about 2 weeks and then unleashed the beast and I am very pleased with the performance and cleanliness of bass. I 110% recommend this sub especially at the price, I have this powered temporarily by a Alpine MRP-M500 at 2ohms and it is a great combo. Thanks again Sonic.

    Well I used to just have a single pioneer 12" and I wanted to upgrade stuff. I did a lot of looking around and decided on these, and well, I got them in a perfect spec box for them, and wow do they pound. I have only had them in about 2 weeks, but so far no problems besides they get warm, but its 90 and humid here in MN right now so thats why. I had a Hifonics ZRX1200.2 Running them but that thing over heated so fast, and I fried it. Well anyways I am not running a RF R1200.1D, and it makes my mirror non usable and gives me a back massage! Love these! Highly recommend them!

    Very good sub for the price!

    December 14, 2011

    I just purchased this sub. I replace an older model Alpine type R12. There was nothing wrong with the alpine, but I just wanted to switch things up. I searched through all of the higher end subs that Sonic sells, and I kept coming back to this one. For 144 bucks I thought what the heck, I'll give it a try. I've known of Fosgate for a long time, but I didn't know what I was missing out on! I'm running one of these subs in a 1.20 cubic foot sealed box on a 600 W rms pioneer amp. So far from what I can tell, this sub will take a lot more juice then what I'm feeding it. For one 12 on 600 watts, this sub is hitting pretty hard. I'm thinking of putting my old MTX thunder 6500d on it and seeing how much louder it will get! You will not be disappointed with this sub. Trust me. Only gave it one star for durability because I haven't had it long enough to find out, although it seems pretty tough, especially with an aluminum cone. Oh yeah, and fosgate is an AMERICAN company!

    Rockford all the way

    April 12, 2011

    These things BANG! Only my second pair of subs but damn, what a difference. Wired to a Rockford Fosgate P1000-1bd bought off Sonic Electronix for way cheaper than Rockford is asking for it.
    Very fast shipping and it was free. Also the cheap prices can't beat it. Saved $200 by buying a set of these on this website vs. Rockford once again. Also bought the wiring from Sonic Electronix for about half the price. Thank you SonicElectronix for saving me a butt load of money and the great service. Will definitely be returning and buying again!

    I have 2 of these wired to 1 ohm ran by a Hifonics Brutus 1200.1d amp (1200+ watts RMS). And let me just say, WOW. These subs blew my expectations out of the water!!! The included bass knob with the amp is wired in and these bad boys can only be turned up a quarter of way until they blow my ear drums out. The first song I played was Gas Pedal with the volume high and boss knob turned up slightly past 1/4 of the way, and my rear view mirror sank straight down it literally took my breath away. I have these in a HUGE ported Pro Box too. I HIGHLY HIGHLY Recommend these subs to anyone and everyone, they are insane!

    I installed these in my friends truck on the RE audio dts 1500 and that amp really makes these things quake. Box tuned to 34 hz and they get down. Great speaker for the price.

    Best Sub I've Owned

    April 24, 2014

    This sub hits super hard and clean. I owned 2 JL 12" w3's and my one P3D4 hits just as hard. I have a ported box with a 1200 watt amp and is perfect. I can't be more satisfied with this sub. I was thinking about getting two of them but it would be too much for me e30. For the price I would highly highly recommend for anyone to consider buying these.

    One word, WOW

    August 7, 2013

    These subs are just plain great, the quality and sturdiness of these mean subs are what you'd expect from Rockford. I couldn't resist so I turn them up just a little and in about a minute a neighbor came out and said "It's a little loud, can you please turn it down". The funny part is that they were playing at about 5% volume.... I've owned the previous model and these new ones hit harder and cleaner. These subs are worth every single penny.

    Bass!

    May 18, 2011

    So I got this sub with the intentions to slam. It is a very good sub and it hits hard im not going to lie. I have it hooked up to a hifonics D.1000 at 2 ohms and its in a sonic ported box. IF you could get a very large ported box for this than it would slam. But overall great buy and I'm looking to get one more in the feature forsure.

    February 17, 2012

    Ive had Punch subs in the past, not any top of the line Punch but i know and have heard all lines of Punch subs since they have started. I love this dual voice sub and it sounds very powerful and clean. I have it in a sealed enclosure in my accord which sounds better in that vehicle to me than ported. Sonic has great service and the best prices.

    I purchase 2 P3's about two weeks ago and put them in my Tahoe. I have them in a ported box wired down to 1 ohm with a Hifonic 2000watt amp behind them. The low end that they produce is round and accurate to the note. For these to produce that much sound you can't beat the price. I've told my friends that they need to upgrade their subs and get these.

    Im loving this sub! Right now I have it in a ported box wired down to 2ohms on my old fosgate amp and at 300watts. It's bumpin' in the back of my lincoln. Definitely going to get a bigger amp and another one of these! I always recomnd Rockford Fosgate to people who aren't sure what to get because they sound good and bump hard. By-the-way, this sub is pretty big so you might have to do some work to get it to fit in boxes you get from Sonic.

    P3

    September 4, 2013

    I have only one of these paired up with the new p500x1 in a prefab vented box from sonic electronix Id say its tuned to 34-38 hz.. kills the lows had to get the cut out opened a little more since the p3 is 11.25". This sub is really sturdy and can take a beating veryyyy clean bass and Ive gotten a lot of compliments from it and I only have the gain up half way at most and it flexes my whole car! Upgraded from a previous kicker cvr and also a p1 10 inch of the same model neither can compare this sub is a monster would recommend to anyone this sub will sound good in the right tuned vented/ported box and sealed as well.

    I have 2 P3s hooked up to a SSL EV2000.2 wired at 4 ohms and 350 RMS to each sub. With only that much wattage, it still bumps pretty hard. I just bought a RF t1000-1bdcp amp and that puts out up to 1500+ RMS x 1 @ 1 ohm. I cant wait to see what these things will be able to do with doubled the rms. I highly recommend these woofers. Even with a smaller amp, they still bump harddd. Highly recommended. Go with RF for everything.

    Not the best subs ive owned in this price range. But i think it was mostly because of the rockford enclosure i bought them in. These are nice subs. But rockfords pre-fab enclosures suck. They have no room in them and they are made for designer looks rather than sound quality and spl. Rockford amps are just ridiculously priced. But they do what they say they can do. Id never buy a rockford amp though. You can get an amp that does the same thing for half the price of rockfords. But these are over all good subs. They can take a beating.

    I just got these about a week ago and WOW! Got 2 on a Hifonics Brutus 1200.1 @ 1 ohm and they hit hard, loud, yet clean. I know these bad boys can take much more than they're rated. The gain is a little over half and the sound is incredible and they're barely moving! Maybe moving up to a larger amp in the future but I'm more than satisfied for now.

    November 6, 2011

    I've had a pair of these subs and have gone back and fourth from ported to sealed. I'm running a brz1200.1d and loving the bass. I have gone from an Alpine 3522s (90w rms) to a kenwood kac-8205 (~300w rms over rated) to a memphis pr150.2 (200w rms VERY underated) to a rockford punch 601s (600w rms) and i must say now that im running a true 1200w amp and my whole system is cea compliant it is SO much louder. Don't be stingy and you wont regret it.

    These are one of the best speakers i have ever owned when it comes to subs. They are strong and powerful subs. I have not hooked them up yet because i only have one now, and have one on the way. But i do know they will pound, because i already have two p2 12's in my 2011 camaro in a sealed box and they hit hard, and i do not even have my bass knob control up. it is on -8. however, when i install these monsters you will hear from me soon. oh by the way i recommend that you buy these subs from Sonic Electronix, they beat the price by far of other sellers. I went to audio midwest and they wanted 247 dollars for one of these. i got two of them for 264 dollars at Sonic Eletronix can you believe that? This is the place to shop for your car audio my friend.

    Surprisingly Musical Sub

    December 19, 2012

    Needed a replacement for the Type R subs I kept blowing and decided to try this one.

    The P3 trumps the Type R in terms of musical accuracy, it reproduces subtle bass frequencies that the Type R misses. While the Type R produces a little more extreme bass, I prefer the P3, hands down. It sounds terrifi (and its cheaper to boot)

    Powerful and Punchy!!

    October 6, 2012

    I bought 2 of these after returning 2 Pioneer Champion Pro series 12's 1000w rms. I wanted more punch from kick drums and bass hits. These totally took care of that! The punch is amazing. They're extremely powerful. I'm feeding them (claimed) 2000w rms from an Autotek Mean Machine 4000.1d. I know the amp is overrated that's why im okay with it. These things are LOUD. Great response and SQ.

    However, for me.. the lows aren't all that great. I mean LOW bass like under 45hz. This might be because i have them in a 1.3 cubic foot box even though the recommended is 1.8.

    All in all i'm extremely happy with them. Loud, responsive, and great SQ.

    The sub is in a ported box, but it still keeps up with just about any
    style of music. This sub is by far way better than most subs in
    this price range. If you need a great 600 rms sub I feel you could
    buy this and be very satisfied.

    Amazing sub for price range

    October 17, 2014

    I previously owned the Fosgate P2D4-12 until it was stolen when my car was broken into. It was an awesome sub with great musical detail. At first, I started to just replace it with the same model. But the one thing I wasn't getting with the P2D4-12 was the really low notes. It could reach pretty low, but the lower frequencies require more power to reproduce. I was sending just under 400 watts from a Fosgate power series amp (which was also stolen!)
    After contemplating if it was worth an extra $50 to go to the P3D4-12, I decided to do it and also got a Fosgate class d mono amp (Prime R500-1) which came with a birth sheet of 651 watts at 2 ohms.
    After a week of breaking it in with some old school Techmaster, I can say that the extra $50 was WELL worth it for the P3 over the P2. I went with a slightly larger box, .9 with some poly fill, and this thing is a BEAST. This single 12 in a sealed box will make your ribcage rattle when you crank it on some heavy bass, and when you dial it in to the right levels it sounds VERY musical and detailed. It hits the very low tones with much more authority than the P2. I would highly recommend!

    I have a extended cab ford ranger with Rockford fosgate t1 door speakers in each door and two in their own boxes behind the seat, along with one Rockford F. P3d4 12" in a huge custom built box with two ports that are over 5 feet, my brother built who is basically a professional. In my town, everybody who has listened to my system has said that it is the best-sounding and hardest-hitting one they have ever heard, even people who have paid thousands for a professional system. I will never buy another brand of speakers or amps. Rockford Fosgate slams, and when I say slams, I mean people can hear me coming from a longggggg way off.

    If you are looking for a powerful sub for a lower price buy this one. This thing hits hard! even when I was under powering it. I would suggest 2 of these things and a nice 1200-1600 watt amp to get maximum performance.

    I've owned the p3's in 10s and 12s and they are loud with good sq. I also run rockford amps on all my systems. You can def tell a difference between RF amps and another brand. Most brands overate there wattage and don't come with a real birth sheet of their products like RF, they may be pricey but not ridiculous, i guess u get what u pay for? PS i liked the look of the older models.

    Rockford Fosgate P3D4-12

    January 5, 2016

    I recently purchased two Rockford Fosgate P3D4-12" sub woofers. We were looking for a little better subwoofer than the Dual subs we had before. We purchased an inclosed divided box for the subs that was not ported and we are very pleased. These subs are amazing and perform well above what I expected them to even with a Crunch amp that is pushing less 200 OHMs less than what the subs can handle. Used the NVX sound deadening to help with rattle and I can't imagine what a bigger amp would do.

    This is a great sub, especially for the price. Originally I bought a Soundstream 12. The Soundstream deep lows great but was super power hungry and missed a lot of the in-between notes--something was just missing. This sub makes it happen. I have it in a sealed enclosure in a new corolla, it pounds. I have the crunch GPA 2000.1 feeding it. The soundstream ate this amp up, the fosgate does well on it. The remote base control knob is huge--some songs need a little more, some a little less.

    Exceptional value

    August 21, 2017

    I was a bit concerned that due to the spl being rather low that thissub would take enormous amounts of power to come alive. In fact with the gains set to only 20% on my Rockford 1500W RMS amp two of these sub provide more than enough tight, controlled, and smooth bass response in my 40' boat. This is with no top up and very little in the way of reinforcement from walls and ceiling or an enclosed environment like a vehicle.

    Build construction seems very good and cosmetically I like the dark appearance the cone and decrotive provide. The only complain I have is the owners manual, which contains an admitted mathimatical mistake in the specification, could prove risky for the custom enclosure maker should they not follow up with Rockfords suplimental correction manual.

    All in this is an exceptional subwoofer with considerable flexibility at a reasonable price.

    Great thump for the price! Sonic Electronix = LEGIT!!!

    March 3, 2017

    One of my friends had 2 of these (older model) in a Mitsubishi Eclipse and I'll never forget how hard they slammed (or how much he paid for them) so when I seen these at this price I was kind of skeptical, but I gave Sonic Electronix a shot and ordered a pair at a little more than $250 and whadda ya know, they came through!!! AWESOME!!! Lightning fast next day shipping if you live in KY (can't speak for anywhere else) They were acceptably packaged and when I opened the box, lo and behold, there were (2) LEGIT, BRAND NEW IN THE BOX, FOSGATE P3D4-12's, WITH THE FACTORY FOSGATE STICKER OVER THE SEAL!!! I was so excited I couldn't wait to finish my new box and get my new Memphis amp hooked up so I wired em up @2ohm apiece (1ohm final) and threw them in a WAYYY undersized sealed enclosure and hooked em up to a small 1,000 watt Kenwood amp (nowhere near what they can really hold), broke em in a little while, then unleashed em and man they are still impressively loud with really strong SPL, but I can tell they are gonna be NASTY when I get em in the proper enclosure and throw the right juice at em! I am very impressed with this product and Sonic Electronix!!! I'm actually in the process of building another order with them as I type this LOL!!! A+ and would recommend to anyone!!! Thanks Sonic Electronix!!!

    This is an amazing subwoofer. I have this paired with the 500 watt class D rockford fosgate amp and boy does it push. This amp is so loud that it made me buy a mini amp for my in cabin speakers. You won't find a better subwoofer for the price and Sonic Elextronics always has the best deals.

    January 19, 2017

    For two 600rms subs these really really pound. I have a SUV and boy do these mofos bump. I feel there able to hit the fast beats easier and smoother then the previous subs I've had that were 12's. It's crazy cause these 12's can hit some lows like I've never seen capable of any other subs I've heard. There a bang for your buck and I recommend this to anyone that wants a loud clear and hard hitting system. I love my subs and I'm so glad I choose them.

    Blown Away

    February 24, 2016

    Hooked up to a 500 watt Rockford Fosgate prime monoblock in my 2015 Outlander. When I first saw it online I was apprehensive on if I needed more than just 1 12'' but I bought it anyways along with a ported box. Man I was blown away the first time it hit with the amp set to 3/4 way this thing hits hard. This sub hits harder than my previous 2 12'' system pushing 1000 watts. Would deff recommend spending the little extra cash to go with the P3. Drop it down to 2 ohms with 500 watts RMS going through it.

    September 23, 2017

    I had the 15 inch model but i couldnt fit it in my new car because of height restrictions, so i bought this to replace it. The price sonic offers it for is a steal because its twice the price on Rockfords website atleast, and this sub competes with alot of higher priced higher end subs. i have this sub in a ported box with the port facing inward towards the car to reduce rattling and increase my spl and gain in the cabin and i have it hooked to a JL 500, at first i notice that it sounded very deep compared to my last subs i had which were 2 12 jbl gto's, the only thing was it didnt really sound good on rock and metal like the jbl's did but once i broke it in for a few months i can say it surpassed the GTO's on every level and pounded harder than the 2 of them. The SQ you can get out of this sub is Amazing for the price because i listen to everything from rap to oldschool rock and metal. Bands like sublime and korn really sound better with this sub. SPL wise it hits really hard for one 12. Ive tried Jbl, Mtx, And Jl audio ranging from the w1 to the w6v3 and i will say this sub is the best bang for your buck SQ and SPL wise, In a sealed box it has SQ and in a ported box it has great SQL just dont tune your box to rockfords 40 hertz tune it in the low 30's and it will really shine.i had my 15 hooked to 1400 watts on a power series 1000.1 and it never blew even when i tried to take it out so i know you can rely on this sub for reliability because Rockford deosnt play no games when it comes to great Quality.
