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 open the box,
verify contents, 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.
Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch P300-12 is an all-in-one
bass solution featuring a 12" woofer in an enclosure made from 5/8" MDF
and a built-in 300 watt RMS amplifier.
Closed-Loop Design: The closed-loop designed ensures optimum
performance of the woofer, amplifier, and enclosure system.
Integrated Amplifier: The 12" woofer is powered by a
built-in amplifier rated at 300 watts RMS/600 watts peak.
Quick Disconnect Power/Ground: The power, ground, and remote
turn-on wires attach to a quick disconnect terminal block, so the subwoofer can
be easily removed when you need more storage space. Each terminal is a set screw,
the power and ground will accept up to 4 gauge wire (minimum 8 gauge recommend)
and the remote turn-on will accept up to 8 gauge wire.
Audio Inputs: The amplifier section will accept either a line
level (RCA) or speaker level signal. The included 10" input harness has a Molex
plug on one end and female stereo RCA jacks on the other. When using a speaker level
input, cut the RCA jacks off and splice into the remaining wires. Adjust the Input
Level switch to match your input type (Hi/Lo).
Auto Turn-On: The Auto Turn-On switch offers three options:
- REM: the amp turns on when +12 volts
DC is applied to the remote terminal
- DC Offset: the amp turns on when a 6
volt surge is detected on the signal inputs (from a speaker
- Audio: the amp turns on when an
ncoming audio signal is detected (can be used with line
level or speaker level inputs)
Gain control: The rotary gain control allows you to match
the output level of your headunit to the input level of the powered subwoofer
Crossover: The 12 db/oct low-pass crossover is always engaged;
the crossover point is adjustable from 50 to 200 Hz.
Bass Boost: Use the rotary dial to adjust the bass boost;
continuously variable from 0 to +12 dB, centered at 45 Hz.
Phase: A switch allows you to reverse the phase of the
subwoofer (0°, 180°).
Protection Circuit: The P300-12 is equipped with thermal
overload, over voltage, and short circuit protection. The amplifier will shut
down if any of these situations is encountered.
Punch Level Control: A wired Punch Level Control is included
so you can adjust the output level from the driver's seat. The remote has a bracket
to mount it under the dash. The included 17-1/2' cable, with a 3.5mm mini-plug on
each end, connects the remote to the subwoofer.
Note: The Punch Level Control measures
approximately 2-3/8" wide x 1" high x 2" deep
(3-1/2" deep including the knob and cable).
Dimensions: The dimensions listed in Features and Specs
include the subwoofer's grille, and the power and signal wiring harnesses, which
add approximately 7/8 of an inch and 1/2 an inch respectively. The depth of just
the enclosure is 10-7/8 inches at the base and 7-1/8 inches at the top. The
width without wiring is 19-7/8 inches.
