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.
Engineers at Rockford Fosgate designed the P1S4-12 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.
The P1S4-12 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." This 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 200 and 375 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.
A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.
Looking for old school sound to replace cerwin vega woofer. I was nervous that it wouldn't deliver the same punch. Rest assured it does. Enjoy!!!
Pros: Delivered the powerful sound I had been used to.
For a cheaper sub they slam. I have it hooked up to a 500 watt amp in the back of my integra and I've had people compliment on it befor.
Pros: Loud, cheap, can fit in small areas
Cons: Not that it really matters but looks boring
Man..this sub's hit hard in a custom ported box that I made...2-12's!! and with the Prime R500X1D giving them 500 watts rms @ 2 ohm load (250 rms for each sub) hit hard more than I spected and my wife never like music loud but..she now always go to work and getting back to work with the bass pounding in my nissan versa..for entry level..love this sub!!
Love this speaker. My only complaint is that the clearance between the speaker cover and the speaker itself is tight. I worry that the speaker will rub up against the cover and produce a hole. Other than that, no complaints. Sounds amazing!!
Pros: good build quality sounds amazing
Cons: tolerances may be to tight?
You will not find a better sub in this price range. I have had and punished many subs since 1986 and I always go back to Rockford Fosgate.
work great,sound awesome,and look really cool also.
Pros: great sound,great price,great quality
Good punch for the money.
Pros: price, sound
I installed it in my nission altima so it must be easy to do lol
It works great and sounds even better with a Rockford Fosgate amp in the trunk
Pros: Fits so easy in an enclosure and looks so so good in it
The sound is freaking loud for only spending $160 simply because they are efficient enough and big enough in the box I chose Has a nice grille available that goes between speakers and outer grille to protect speaker even though i don't need cause the box is sealed for front of speakers
Pros: Perfect value for such loud sound, clear bass in this band pass box or whatever it's called
Cons: I'm not really going to consider this a negative, but the trim rings are a tight fit at 13in diameter, fits great in the box tight for anyone who needs to know
purchased 2 12's for $100 each. I have them in a bassworx ported box with a alpine m500 amplifier wired @ 2 ohms (roughly around 250 watts per subwoofer). i wasnt expecting a whole lot from these since they're only stage 1's. but after testing it in my car, they pound pretty hard for what they are. they get loud for a cheap price.
Pros: - looks cool - hits hard
Cons: - sq isnt all that great

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch P1S4-12 is a 12-inch subwoofer with a single 4Ω voice coil. The sub features a StampCast steel frame, quick-release compression terminals, a Kevlar fiber reinforced paper cone, and NBR surround (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber). An anodized aluminum voice coil former and spider venting help keep the subwoofer cool.
Steel Basket: The P1S4-12 subwoofer features a StampCast steel basket for added rigidity.
Compression Terminals: The P1S4-12 features spring post terminals which accommodate speaker wire up to 10 gauge.
CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the P1S4-12 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 PVC 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. The trim ring increases the mounting height of the woofer to 13/16 of an inch.
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 3" diameter x 6" long port; this yields a tuning frequency of 36 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 32 Hz).
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team. They verify what’s in the box, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
I already have two. I blew one of them, so obvious I need to replace it by getting another one. Overall it is a great sounding speaker with very nice quality at a(n) affordable price. Very recommended because most stores will try to push what they are sponsored by (speaker brand) without giving you the full story on everything. Do your research! [ Kevin Jan 03, 2016 ]
Love rockford products [ Jason Dec 29, 2015 ]
I used 10 gauge and it worked well. [ MITCHELL Jul 14, 2015 ]
14 Gauge or 16 Gauge wire will work fine both inside the sub box and from the sub box to the amplifier. [ Benjamin Jul 13, 2015 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy Dec 08, 2014 ] Staff
