Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Punch P152

by Jo Greene
Rockford Fosgate

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

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.

Rockford Fosgate designed the Punch P152 5-1/4" speakers as a high-grade replacement for your factory speakers. Each speaker features a responsive polypropylene cone and butyl rubber surround that'll stand up to hours of high-volume jams. Rockford Fosgate uses a new technique to attach the surround to the cone that yields up to 25% more cone area, for fuller sound and stronger performance. The dome tweeters provide clear, extended highs that can hold their own when the bass gets heavy.

Take a closer look and you'll notice a couple of cool innovations. The slots around the frame eliminate the need to redrill screw holes when the factory holes are just a little bit off. And these speakers come with adapter plates that allow them to fit into oval speaker openings.

Highlights:

  • 2-way 5-1/4" speakers (pair)
  • mineral-filled polypropylene woofer
  • butyl rubber surround
  • 3/4" polyetherimide (PEI) dome tweeter
  • grilles included
  • includes adapter brackets for 5"x7" and 6"x9" openings
  • Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST™) increases cone area
  • power range: 6-40 watts RMS (80 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 70-22,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 87 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-15/16"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Injection-Molded Polypropylene Woofers: The woofer cones are mineral filled, injection-molded polypropylene. This molding process assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.

Butyl Rubber Surrounds: The butyl rubber surrounds dampen unwanted harmonic distortion while maintaining linear geometry under extreme weather conditions. This leads to less distortion, superior frequency response, and superior durability.

VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.

Tweeters: Each speaker features a 3/4" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) dome tweeter; PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

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

Adapter Bracket: For mounting flexibility, the speaker can be mounted in 6x9 and 5x7 applications using the supplied brackets.

Speaker Terminals: These speakers have 0.25" wide positive (+) terminals and 0.187" wide negative (-) terminals, which are too large for the vehicle-specific speaker harnesses supplied by Crutchfield for many vehicle applications. It is recommended that a pack of assorted female quick slides (item # 263FQS10PK) be purchased and spliced to the harnesses to adapt them to the speaker terminals.

Rockford Fosgate Punch P152

Written By John, Pottsville, PA on Monday, March 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Excellent sound, a big improvement over the speakers that came with my '06 Jeep Wrangler. I installed them in the sound bar that is under the rollbar. The grills that came with the speakers are a little too big to fit in the opening but I don't mind. One side is distorting due to the case. Will use sound deadening when I get the chance. The free supplied wiring connector was helpful but the ends that attach to the speakers were too small and needed to be modified to work.
Pros:
Excellent sounding, very good price, good shipping and internet shopping experience. Helpful extras to make the installation easy.
Cons:
None.

Very nice and loud and good on music like rap and dubstep.these speakers are great but you will need the right amount of power to push them. Head unit power alone isn't enough a amp I required to get the full effect of them

Speakers for my 81 Imperial

Written By KMM, Detroit MI on Saturday, February 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I love the speakers, sound is great, but was disappointed that they are not drop ins that actually fit the car. When I purchased I used the selection tool on the site to pick out these speakers. Had to modify passenger side mount and remove some plastic to be able to use 2 of the 3 mounting screws. Drivers side, had to remove the rubber surrounding the magnet to come close to fitting, then cant use any of the mounting holes, had to remove some plastic from the car and rely on silicone to hold the speaker in place. Hoping it doesn't vibrate on me.
Pros:
Great sound for the price
Cons:
Don't really fit the car without some modifications.

Factory Flawed But sounds OK

Written By Napools, Florida on Monday, September 10, 2012
 
The speaker set i received had one of the connections held together by electricians tape to mend the spot where the solder joint had been broken. The speaker was in a sealed factory container too, not a return to Crutchfield from what I could see. even though the speaker still functioned ok, I won't buy another Rockford Fosgate product
Pros:
size fir my car well
Cons:
factory quality control is poor at best

Great mids/highs, Terrible bass

Written By Seth B, Southport, IN on Monday, June 20, 2011
 
I bought these for the rear deck in my 08 civic and they sound awesome, but then bought them again for the doors and the mids/highs are great but the bass is extremely terrible. I will be adding a sub just to get some bass.

Fosgate never lets me down!

Written By Seth, Southport, IN on Wednesday, June 08, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought these for the rear deck of my 2008 Honda Civic LX Sedan and absolutely love them! They sound soo much better than the factory junk that used to be in there. Came with the correct adapter brackets. The only problem is the terminals on the wiring harness do not fit the RF terminals so I had to go buy a pack of the correct size female terminals. Other than that I couldn't ask for anything better, thank you Crutchfield!

Rockford Fosgate's rock the MINI Cooper

Written By Mike, Jackson, MI on Tuesday, May 24, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The sound is excellent, the Punch speakers rock the MINI Cooper. I bought these to replace the stock speakers in a 2003 MIni Cooper S. The sound was worth the installation work for sure. No complaints with the speakers, but the speaker wire adapters did not fit the speaker's tabs, so I made the trip to the big box store and bought a pack of new ends. I cut & crimped and they were fine. I also decided to replace the stock door panel covers with the RF covers, after some trimming and buying longer screws they look great. They're great, I'll be getting the 6x9's replaced with RF's next !
