Rockford Fosgate Punch P1, P2, and P3 Subwoofers – Video review
Last week we showed you a complete Pioneer audio system for under $400. This week we are going to talk all about the BASS.
Let’s get started
Rockford Fosgate is known by all bass heads for their relentless hard hitting bass. Rockford has one of the largest line-ups of subwoofers with three different lines. Within those lines there are 3 performance levels. Prime, Punch, and Power are all performance subwoofers and push the envelope with their output.
Rockford Fosgate Prime subwoofers
For those getting started in car audio or for those looking for a little fuller sound we have the Prime series. These entry level woofers are available in the R1 and R2 series in both 10 inch and 12 inch models. R1’s are the least expensive way to get some low-end notes in your ride.
The R2’s are available in shallow and regular mount. They are a step up from the R1’s with their better power handling and more flexible wiring options thanks to their dual voice coil design.
Punch P1 subwoofers
For those looking for some serious bass, Rockford has the Punch series. Punch subwoofers are available in P1, P2, and P3 performance lines. The P1 is the introduction to the Punch line-up. The P1’s are available in 8, 10, 12, and 15 inch. The P1 introduces a linear spider with embedded 16 gauge tinsel leads and are only available in single voice coil. The Kevlar fiber paper cone is extremely rigid and delivers the bass you expect from a Punch series woofer.
Punch P2 subwoofers
The P2 takes all of the P1 features and pushes the envelope even further. The P2 brings added flexibility with its dual voice coil design. The P2 also has a considerably larger motor structure…. The magnet size is increased nearly 40% and has a 2-1/2 inch voice-coil compared the P1’s 2 inch voice coil. The integrated spider and voice-coil venting is a standard feature of all Punch series subwoofers.
Punch P3 subwoofers
The P3 improves on the P2 and pushes subwoofer technology to the limit. The P3’s are available in 10, 12, and 15 models. Rockford has pushed the XMAX limit to nearly 16 millimeters! To get there, Rockford has yet again increased the magnet size by nearly 35% over the P2. The larger VAST surround allows for the increased excursion and adds up to 25% more cone area. The P2 adds an Anodized aluminum cone and dust cap for even more rigidity.
The P3 line-up adds shallow mount subwoofers in 8, 10, and 12 inch models. The shallow mount P3’s incorporate all of the P3 technology in a depth limited package. The M-roll surround allows for nearly 9 millimeters of XMAX and the dual linear spider keeps everything in alignment. The P3 shallow open up new possibilities in otherwise limited applications.
The P3 is the best performing Punch series subwoofer.
All Rockford Punch series woofers include trim rings and are compatible with optional Rockford grills. The trim rings provide a distinct look for a nice finished product.
Punch pre-loaded subwoofers
For those of us not interested in building a box or having one made.. Rockford has the entire Punch and Prime series subwoofers in pre-loaded enclosures. The Punch pre-loaded enclosures are available in P1, P2, and P3 performance levels and utilize the same drivers in 10 and 12 inch.. They are available in Single and dual driver configurations.
