Rockford Fosgate P300-12 powered sub

Rugged and powerful

Who needs a powered subwoofer?

To produce bass, you need a sub, an enclosure, and an amplifier, and it can be little tricky to match them all up. A powered sub eliminates all the hassle, as the manufacturer designs the enclosure to house the sub and amp together. This all-in-one solution is especially useful in smaller vehicles, where there's no room to mount a separate amp, or in any vehicle where you need every bit of cargo space. Powered subs range from small, flat boxes that fit under your seat to larger boxes that go in your trunk.

Product Research


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 level source)
  • 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 (100mV-3V).

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.

Great product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great speaker, installed in my Hyundai Tiburon and sounds great

Good, but...

Written By pmat, California on Sunday, December 28, 2014

Bought it for my son. It sounded fine. The vinyl cover pealed off within 3 mos. at 18 months the thing destroyed itself. Subs are supposed to be loud and all so don't tell me my son played it too loud. It should not be able to eat itself.

Pros: sounded good while it worked.

Cons: its deceased

Great woofer

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great little woofer. Adds quite a bit of base to my setup, easy to install, and takes up little space. I was surprised how small it actually is. I was expecting it to take up a lot more space than it did.

Pros: Small size, easy setup, great bass. Has your bass dial, so you can turn up the bass or lower it.

Cons: It's not a fast moving woofer, so if your music has extremely quick bass thumps, this woofer can't keep up. It's more for your slower bass sounds. If you're looking for huge amounts of bass, you might want to go with a seperate amp/woofer setup. Also multiple woofers.

I placed this sub-woofer in my 2012 F-150. WOW!!! Easy install, self contained, slim design fits perfectly. I love the remote gain control. Easy to customize to different music. I have this paired up with Kenwood deck and Alpine door speakers. Sounds awesome!

Pros: Slim design - fits anywhere Deep bass - clean Remote gain control - customize to any music Built in cross-over - adjust to your liking Clean, attractive enclosure Solid!

Cons: Wish I had 2 :(

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I originally purchased the P300-10 and was a little underwhelmed with the bass response in my 2003 Taurus so I exchanged for the 12". What a huge difference! The remote allows me to adjust bass on the fly, depending on what I am listening to. As other reviews have stated, this sub isn't meant to aggravate those who aren't traveling in the vehicle with you but it fills the whole car with rich bass nonetheless. I mounted it in the trunk with my Sound Ordnance M4050 Amp and it looks great! I highly recommend this sub for those of you who want a well balanced sounding system but still want to bump it up to aggravate your Nurse Practitioner wife who's only remark about your bangin new system is "Your gonna hurt your ears!" This is a great alternative to buying an amp, enclosure, and separate subs. Additionally, as previously stated, all the connections are plugs so you can remove the sub in seconds if you need the trunk space back. Mounting was simple too with the Velcro strips that are included. They grip onto the trunk carpet and my new sub hasn't moved an inch after some enthusiastic driving down in the Metroparks ;) P.S. Use a really good ground and quality power cable connectors on your install and you wont have any hum, turn on pop or any of the other things people complain about with their installs.

Pros: Great, rich bass. Fills the car with sound vs sounding like its coming from the trunk. Super easy install. Great looking sub with the trunk open.

Cons: None


Written By Rutt, Grenada, MS on Friday, June 07, 2013

I was skeptical when I bought this product, because I was always a fan of seperate Amps and Speakers. Just didn't think I would get same performance out of this unit. So glad to say that I was wrong. This Sub puts out QUALITY BASS!! Depending on adjustment (which is very easy) it can be used for LOUD thumping bass or it can be used for a more crisp bass. VERY VERSATILE!!

Installed in a 2009 Silverado Crew Cab. The box is a little too big to fit under my back seat and sticks out a little bit. Doesn't bother me, but I could see it being in the way if a person has a lot of passengers that ride in the back seat.

Really like the bass control. I listen to a lot of different types of music and this makes it very easy to get exact bass that I am looking for with each.

My Setup: 8 Gauge Wire straight to the battery Pioneer CD player Kicker 2-way speakers in front and rear panels.

Extremely happy with this purchase.

Pros: Versatility, Quality, Appearance, Bass Control

Cons: Little too big to fit under back seat of my crew cab (must have messed up my measurements because item is as listed)

Rockford Fosgate Punch P300-10

Written By F8alfun, SE Mich on Thursday, May 16, 2013

This sub and amp is a great addition to my 2011 GMC, factory radio. This SUB ROCKS HARD!!! It brings both tears of joy, and annoyed looks from the rest of the people NOT sitting in the truck. I love the adjustability. Fits nicely under the left side rear seat, and the person sitting there is always smiling. Used high level inputs, as I was not ready to tear the dash apart to see if I had low level outputs on the stock head unit. I freaking love it, no matter what life brings, once I'm in the truck it all goes away on a BASS NOTE. My son will be purchasing one for his truck soon.

Pros: Sound quality, ease of install

Cons: none

Great Bass!

I can't believe how well this sounds without an amp. All the bass and power is contained within this box.

Rockford Fosgate Punch P300-12

Written By Kyle V, Ponchatoula, La on Wednesday, July 04, 2012

i bought this from another site since crutchfield was out at the time and i can say for the money you can achieve much louder bass. but this item does what it needs to do.

i currently have it in my 2012 nissan versa hatch with 10gauge power/ground running straight to the batt (i dont suggest 10gauge if you arent going to run your ground cable back to the battery) and a req5 converting the factory signal to low level for the rockford unit.

installation was quite easy for the unit itself, i would assume it may be a bit more difficult if you were to use the high level inputs instead of a signal processor. but for me it was as simple as plugging in the power, ground, remote, and rcas. setting the gain was a bit more difficult though since the method i use requires me measuring volage at the amp terminals; i had to take the speaker out of the box, be warned the screws are an allen head for theft protection. after taking the sub out of the box i set my head unit to 3/4 volume and popped in a 50hz 0db test tone and using a dmm set to ac voltage i set the amp for roughly 280w just to be safe and put the sub back in the box. i then set the low pass to roughly 80hz and verified that the bass boost was turn all the way down. since it isnt needed and is an easy way to damage a speaker if set up improperly.

time for listening, the unit performs quite well, it isnt going to shake the house down, but it's a good factory upgrade and it blended with my factory speakers quite well

Pros: its compact, easy to install, and easy to remove(just unplug two plugs and pull it out)

Cons: for being rockfords punch line i was expecting a little more output, (respectively i may get more output when switching to an aftermarket headunit though i wont find out till i buy one), lower end bass like below 35hz is lacking but thats common for a sealed box of this size i wouldve liked to see the box be a tad bit bigger like 1.25cubes rather than 1 cube as it would allow the sub to play a bit lower

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The sub in the enclosure doesn't exactly match the stand alone subs offered by Rockford Fosgate as component subs, so we can't give you a specific model number. In terms of power handling it is between the P1 and the P2. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Jan 27, 2015 ]  Staff
You can mount it. You can bolt it down with a bracket or even velcro it. Mine isn't mounted but if you can i would recommend it. [ Connor  Sep 13, 2014 ]
It comes with an adhesive strip that has velcro on one side. For me, It has stayed in place perfectly with only the strip, even through a wreck. The strip is slightly longer than the bottom of the subwoofer so you can even put it partially on the side so it cab stick on the side of your trunk for extra support. [ AUSTIN  Sep 12, 2014 ]
yes it turns on when a signal is present, also shuts down when no signal is present. [ OSCAR  Sep 09, 2014 ]
Yes it will turn on and off with speaker input. [ JOHN A  Sep 08, 2014 ]
I would read that the same way. I was able to use a remote turn on from the radio. Also this is in my wife's 4 Runner and she loves it. [ BRANDON  Sep 08, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: You will need to provide them with separate power and you can do that by either running them through a power distribution block or directly to the battery. You will also need to provide them both with separate signal. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Jul 22, 2014 ]  Staff
i got the rockford cables which were recommender for install from the sub to the receiver. works like a champ. If you are going to install yourself you must get, but if you are going to have installed professionally from a shop they would have cables, hopefully Rockford, but some other brand none the less. Enjoy the sub. Set the control nearby. Perfect. [ Laura J San  Jul 18, 2014 ]
Hi, Brendan. Well, this unit comes with the sub enclosure, the removable terminal block, remote control + wire, and mounting options. It does *not* come with the electrical equipment required to hook up the electrical connections. You will need to provide, at a minimum, 1) a power wire (see product info for recommended wire gauge), 2) signal wire from your HU to the sub and 3) ground connection. These last three wires/cables are *not* included with the Rockford P300-12 package, but from my understanding they are typical components in any of the "subwoofer wiring packages" that you can find on CF or anywhere else. [ Matthew  Jul 15, 2014 ]
Hi Brendan G, We bought an additional switch which we mounted in the dash for power so it could be turned off when ever. Other than that, it came with everything we needed. We're very happy with it. [ JOHN  Jul 13, 2014 ]
This is a powered sub so the AMP and everything is inside the box. You will need to purchase a wiring kit to wire it into your existing electrical. I ordered the following along with this Sub: Rockford Fosgate RFK4 Amplifier Wiring Kit 4 gauge Power Item #: 575RFK4 and Rockford Fosgate RFK8I Amplifier Wiring Kit 8 gauge Power Item #: 575RFK8I Also don't forget to get a distribution Block (not necessarily required if you're just doing a single sub). [ ROB  Jul 12, 2014 ]
The only other thing you need to install is an amp install kit (power cables, ground wire, and the RCA connectors). Other wise it's a straight forward install [ MACE  Jul 12, 2014 ]
This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation. [ Greg  Jul 12, 2014 ]  Staff
The LC2i is a great product, but not totally needed for this application. 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). [ Jeff  Apr 15, 2014 ]  Staff
I have a Ford F150 Extended Cab and I quickly replaced my first one when it was stolen with another one. I love the punch and the quality is everything Crutchfield said it would be. Try talking with a specialist with the tech team...they really want you to be happy not just sell you something! [ CORY  Feb 20, 2014 ]
I would say a major factor in whether or not you'll like it is what kind of music you listen to. I put it behind the back seats of an 09 Escape and I'm perfectly satisfied with it. I listen to, rock mostly, some punk and metal too. It's perfect for me. It adds feel to the kick drum/double bass, and fills out the rest of the frequencies well. If you're into rap and you're trying to go around bumping the neighborhood, this probably isn't what you're looking for. Keep in mind it has it's own separate volume knob so you can adjust the mix to your liking which is really nice. Overall I'd say it hits plenty hard enough for anyone not trying to be obnoxious. [ Jerome  Feb 19, 2014 ]
Hi Caleb, I purchased this subwoofer, to fit in my F-150, regular cab. The sub sits behind both seats, facing the center armrest, about 2 inches away. I did a lot of research about ideal placement, with various custom installers. Ofcourse, the ideal situation would be to point the sub to an empty area (closed trunk or rear hatch), but unless you are looking to change vehicles, you must work with what you have. The reason I selected the 12" sub was to compensate for the environment. I am very happy with my choice. The large sub speaker moves a lot of air! The tight enclosure was pre-designed specifically for this sub. I enjoy the deep and strong bass! The 300 watt built in amp does the trick. Another advantage of having it right behind the seat, is that you can "feel" the bass. Check out the frequency range. It starts in the 30's. I think in your situation, with the soft top, you have no choice but to get power. 300 watts of sub, plus say 75+ from your door speakers, should drown much of the road noise. Compare the environment to a big and noisy concert auditorium. The closer you are to the stage and the music, the less the interruption from the crowd. I hope this helped. Good luck! [ David  Feb 17, 2014 ]
Thanks Richard, don't have much choice now I ordered it. Looks like I'll have to give it a chance, as long as I can hear good low notes and feel it some I'll probably be happy enough.... Have the distinct feeling it'll sound allot like a free air setup and just sound floppy, I've ran into this before.. I took a system out of a Pontiac sunfire that slammed very hard and put in into my Cherokee sport and is was night and day .... it sounded awful in the jeep [ Caleb  Feb 17, 2014 ]
I just recently purchased this powered sub for a 84 mustang hatchback. I know your setup is totally different but I have been very pleased with the performance out of this 12" sub. Having a hard top as you well know helps the lows bounce around in the cabin, so I don't know if you will have the same luck with the soft top. I still say give it a try you might be suprised. :-) [ RICHARD  Feb 17, 2014 ]
The amp will not even turn on with out power from a remote wire. If your head unit does not have a REM wire the best solution is to run another power wire from your battery with a switch inline to turn your amp on and off on your own. [ Matthew  Jan 28, 2014 ]
We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Jeff  Jan 20, 2014 ]  Staff
It sounds like everything is there, but I would still recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone or online chat. They will be able to double check everything with you and make sure you'll be good to go. [ Jeff  Jan 08, 2014 ]  Staff
Unit comes with all wires .. it does have remote turn on but wasn't sensitive with my car so I had it hooked up to automatically turn on with the vehicle . Sound quality is amazing . Hooked it up to a 2003 Lexus ( factory system ) it made the factory system sound like an expensive custom system !! Very impressed ! [ MATT  Jan 06, 2014 ]
If you going to tap off and use speaker level input your going to need a low/high input converter to wire this. I believe schorce makes one pretty cheap. And yes your going to need a 12v switched source to turn amp on & off with ignition. My recommendation is don't get this box. I had it for about a month and it just doesn't have enough volume especially if you have it in a trunk (can barely hear it even with it turned up.) I sold it to my buddy with a jeep & got a sub box, 2 fosgate 10's and a Hifonics amp all for cheaper online then what I paid for this setup & it's a night and day difference in sound and quality. [ BRENT  Jan 06, 2014 ]
I just purchased it 2 weeks ago. it does not come with necessary wiring to connect. it still runs through the Subwoofer wiring kit that would need to be purchased separately. it does come with a level adjust dial that can be mounted pretty much anywhere in the car. As for the power, i understand it as a remote turn on with direct power supply through the subwoofer wiring kit [ Japheth  Jan 05, 2014 ]
I stand corrected. A speaker-wire to RCA plug converter is included. No need for it but you will need RCA wires to run to the sub's location. So, everything you need to connect this unit is included in the packaging. A very well pre thought kit RF has offered. GL [ Teofilo  Jan 05, 2014 ]
I'll give it a stab. It requires a switched 12v power source. If you're stereo is equipped, connect it's blue antenna's switched power wire to the sub's switched power inlet. If I understand you correctly. You plan to use your speaker wires for the sub's signal input. You'll need a seperate speaker-wire to RCA plug converter. That is not included. Good luck, [ Teofilo  Jan 05, 2014 ]
