Overview

Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Punch P16

Take a closer look and you'll notice a couple of cool innovations. 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 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 you can modify to install these speakers into 5"x7", 6"x8", or 6"x9" openings. Grilles are included.

High-quality replacement speakers

Rockford Fosgate designed the Punch P16 6-1/2" 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. The dome tweeter provides clear, extended highs that can hold their own when the bass gets heavy.Side view of P16 6-1/2" speaker

Note: The oversized terminals on these speakers won't connect to a Crutchfield wiring harness. A free 10-pack of female quick slides that you can splice onto our harness will be included with your speaker purchase.

Got these to replace the stock speakers. R/F had it all planned out for install. Had to drill holes by using template provided. With a little sound pad behind them, they sound amazing! Thanks Crutchfield!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these speakers to upgrade the system on my Silverado since 3 of the 4 stock door speakers were blown. They seem to be really nice but I've only had them installed for a few days so I'm not sure about their durability and quality but so far they've been great! Crutchfield provided quick shipping and mounting adapters as well as wiring harnesses that worked perfectly! Great buy if your looking to upgrade your speakers

Pros: Sound good Adapters and wiring harnesses included for free Good price

Cons:

They do what I want

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Factory speakers in my car were just bad enough to matter, so I sought a replacement. By no means an audiophile, these are a cost effective solution. They do the dang job. Using in tandem with a Clarion XC 1410 amp.

Pros: Much clearer sound, significantly more power than factory speakers.

Cons: Most likely need an amp to perform at full potential.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a difference. Even though I had the upgraded system in my Jeep the sound got lost with the top off. My new system powers out the sound very clean and sounds great.

Pros: Clear and loud sound

Cons: Not supposed to fit the headbar of my Jeep but with a little effort is works well. Baffle helps the sound

Awesome speakers!

Written by: Doug from Sioux City, IA on February 25, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not impressed. Replaced 4 factory speakers a week ago with the Punch 16s and 2 of them rattle/buzz. Spend a little more and get a better speaker. On the up side Crutchfield is sending me replacement speakers.

Pros: Easy to install, and Crutchfield sent factory plug adapters, and replacement bezels for easy install.

Cons: Everything else, including having to take the doors apart 2 times.

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.

StampCast Basket: The P16 features StampCast steel baskets for added rigidity.

Mounting: While Rockford Fosgate calls the P16 a 6" speaker, they are sized to mount in standard three-hole and four-hole 6-1/2 applications. They can also be easily mounted in 6-3/4 applications, but because the extra screw holes create an air leak in the larger opening, speaker baffles must be used.

Adapter Bracket: For mounting flexibility, the included brackets can be modified to fit 5x7, 6x8, or 6x9 applications.

Note: The bracket is generic (cutout sized for a 5-1/4) and requires modification before the P16 will fit into it.

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 number 120FQS10PK, sold separately) be purchased and spliced to the harnesses to adapt them to the speaker terminals.
