Rockford Fosgate P2D2-12

Overview

Our take on the Rockford Fosgate P2D2-12

Standout performance

Rockford Fosgate showcases their fanatical commitment to sonic excellence in the Punch Series of speakers, amps, and subs. If you like to listen to potent, powerful music — and feel it too — Punch components will give you impressive sound that'll stand out in a crowd.

Cutaway view

Bulletproof bass

Engineers at Rockford Fosgate designed the P2D2-12 12" subwoofer to dish out the kind of powerful low end you crave in your ride. Its responsive paper cone is reinforced with the same Kevlar® fibers used in bulletproof vests so you get the best of both worlds — warm bass that's exceptionally hard-hitting. Rockford Fosgate uses a new technique to attach the oversized rubber surround to the cone that increases available cone area up to 25%, so this sub can push more air for even bigger bass.

Made for heavy excursion

This P2 sub features an extended pole piece and bumped backplate that leaves more room for heavy excursion, so it'll hit deeper lows without "bottoming out." Special venting keeps the copper-clad aluminum voice coils cool through heavy use for consistent bass performance over time.

The dual 2-ohm voice coils allow you to wire the sub for 1-ohm impedance to get maximum power output, or for 4-ohm impedance if you're using multiple subs. The P2D2-12 sub works equally well in a sealed or ported enclosure, so you can choose the kind of bass you want for your system.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 300 and 600 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

I installed four of these in a sealed box powered by two 500 watt RMS Kenwood amps, with 40sq ft of sound deadening. All I can say is that I seriously overdid it! Too much bass - even sealed and powered by underwhelming amps. Subs play the low notes with authority, but the higher (bass) notes aren't as crisp and the "kick" bass isn't as impressive.

Pros: Ridiculous lows, not much power needed, tight bass.

Cons: A bit pricey for what they are, low Xmax (8.5mm), high bass notes (65+) aren't very crisp of clean.

Fantastic Results

Creating a system that will harness sound quality without sacrificing space in a Jeep Wrangler is a very daunting task! After weeks of research and some assistance from Chip (Crutchfield advisor), we found what would work with my current set-up. This RF P2D2 compliments the rest of my system very well! The bass isn't lost even with the top down and that was very important to me. Using this sub actually rounded out my system and balanced everything out! I have received many compliments about how this sub sounds in such a small space. My sealed box has enough space to accommodate the required specs of the sub and it responds very well without falling flat on it's face! I am extremely happy with the results coming out of the sub and couldn't be happier with the assistance that Chip provided. The product was shipped fast and communication is top notch! I wouldn't recommend going anywhere else because you simply cannot get this kind of assistance any where else and they do it for FREE! I would strongly recommend using this sub to anyone that doesn't want to take up a huge amount of space and still retain a killer amount of bass without being a "Pro"! Thanks to Crutchfield for guiding me in the right direction and for supplying me with a great choice! I'm a very happy Customer! ~Dan

Pros: Doesn't take up a ton of space to sound good Easy wiring diagrams and recommended settings

Cons: No-Full face grill to cover the sub. Being in a Jeep exposes the sub to anything tossed in any given space available when the top is down!

Big bang for your buck

These speakers are amazing, they hit so hard, make sure to get a ported box so you don't run the risk of damaging the speakers because they kick a lot of air, I'm very satisfied with the way these speakers perform, very powerful and can handle constant power,

Pros: Great made speakers

Cons: Recommend a ported box for best performance

I wasn't a fan on rockfosgate before I bought these. I previously owned a pair of diamond audio D3 12's, so I figured there wasn't any better than the diamond. Then I was told about the P2 12's and read the reviews and I was like maybe I will give it a shot. So I ordered me a pair, soon as I installed them I was like wow, oh my goodness these are a good quality sounding speakers. On top of that I couldn't beat the price with a broom stick lol.

This sub is simply amazing!! Goes great with my new system and hits extremely hard for just a single subwoofer. I would advise anyone who is just looking for some better sound quality in their vehicle to highly consider this line of sub.

Pros: Sounds amazing Hits extremely hard Amazing design and quality

Cons:

P2D2-12 are great subwoofers

Great sub make sure to give this enough power and no distortion.

Pros: Plenty of power handling, great sound quality.

Qaulity

octavius from richmond, va on 6/19/2011

I have a 1000 watt BA GT2300 on this 400 watt sub... and it takes everybit of it. Now the amp is all the way down but the extension keeps begging for more. I've blown alot of woofers but this speaker takes the abuse without sacrificing sound qaulity...their very underated. I'm a JL fan also, but you would have to buy a 500 dollar W6 to get to this level seriuosly. I'm buying 2 p3 10's in the near future and turn that gain up...Rockford for subs-JL for amps!!!

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch P2D2-12 is a 12-inch subwoofer with dual 2Ω voice coils. The sub features a StampCast steel frame, quick-release compression terminals, a Kevlar fiber reinforced paper cone, and Santoprene surround. An anodized aluminum voice coil former and spider venting help keep the subwoofer cool.

Dual 2Ω Voice Coils: The dual 2Ω voice coils offer wiring flexibility; when wired in parallel the woofer presents a 1Ω load, when wired in series the woofer presents a 4Ω mono load.

Steel Basket: The P2D2-12 subwoofer features a StampCast steel basket for added rigidity.

Compression Terminals: The P2D2-12 features spring post terminals which accommodate speaker wire up to 10 gauge.

CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the P2D2-12 subwoofer conforms to CEA-2031 industry standards. This means the subwoofer has the capacity to handle power under continuous demand, not instantaneous power handling, that over time, can damage voice coils.

FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.

Trim Ring: To improve the cosmetic look, a decorative trim ring is included that mounts over the flange of the woofer. When using the cast aluminum trim ring the woofer is first mounted with four screws, then the ring is placed on top of the woofer, aligning the final four holes of the woofer with ring. The other four screws are used for these holes to mount the ring and woofer to the enclosure. Without the trim ring the mounting height of the woofer is just over 7/8 of an inch, with the trim ring it's approximately 1-1/16 inches. The diameter of the trim ring is 13-5/16 inches.

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box: Rockford recommends a sealed enclosure with an optimum internal volume of 1.02 cubic feet (from 0.7 to 1.8 cubic feet is acceptable). Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music.

Ported Box: Rockford recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 1.79 cubic feet using one 4" diameter x 10" long port; this yields a tuning frequency of 40 Hz. Ported (or vented) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed so they are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output from less power. However, this efficiency comes at the expense of very low frequency output (below 34 Hz).

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Rockford Fosgate P2D2-12 can be wired to 1 ohm since it's a 2-ohm dual voice coils. You'll need to wire the subwoofer in parallel in order to achieve a 1 ohm impedance meaning you'll take the negatives and wire those together and the same with the positive. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  May 29, 2014 ]  Staff
