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.

Rockford Fosgate Punch P300-12

Written By Eric, Wyoming on Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Cons: A little pricey

Remote quality crappy

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

In a Nutshell..Been a punch consumer for 20 years...verywell constructed enclosure. Produces all the thump my wife needs in her 09 cobalt, But paint on bass remote dial began flaking off before I could get it mounted. After roughly 1 week of normal use paint has all but gone on remote dial forcing me to relocate it to a location that could not be seen from passenger side as it looks like crap....dissapointed.

Pros: Well constructed enclosure. Nice kick for small sedan.

Cons: Bass remote knob lost all paint/logo after 1 week of minimal use. Poor quality bass remote quailty.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Did a great amount of research before purchasing this 12" Punch 300 I've owned JL audio and Rockford in the past. I was sold on the unit having a built in 300watt amp.. I have a 2012 Nissan Sentra and kept my stock system and jus had his installed very recently... Well this piece of superb equipment ROCKS.. The level bass control is a great feature and it sounds great with my stock system.. The bass hits hard very hard and tight.. I listen to all genres of music and am extremely satisfied.. Thank you Crutchfield.. I live in Maui Hi and they shipped this for free... On time and in perfect factory packaging...

Very Impressed ! !

Written By AdvMECP, Rochester, NY on Sunday, February 22, 2015

I am an experienced Advanced MECP Technician for an install shop and I installed this for a client who brought it in. I typically do not like self powered sub-woofers but this one really impressed me. Granted it was installed in to a 2014 Ford Focus Hatch Back, emphasis on Hatch Back part, but it sounded amazing for a single sub-woofer. Great job Rockford Fosgate ! ! ! It also came with some nice Velcro I applied to the bottom of the hard shell box and it really gripped in to the clients rear hatch area to prevent it from traveling around. The quick connectors also for power, ground, and remote, as well as for the RCA connections was a pleasant feature as well to work with.

It was great also that it came with a Bass Knob as it was a stock radio in the vehicle which we used a line level converter, and having the Bass Knob really gave him the independent sub-woofer control he needed.

Pros: It was made by Rockford Fosgate :-p . A lot more output (loudness) than I expected compared to other self powered sub-woofers I have installed. Pleasant Easy quick connectors for Power, Ground, Remote, and RCA's. Velcro to attach to bottom of box to keep traction and box from roaming around, grill cover over sub-woofer to prevent things in hatch (or trunk) of vehicle damaging subwoofer.

Cons: I did not get to keep it :-)

Great product

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

Written By khanikun, Stuttgart, Germany on Monday, August 11, 2014

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 :(

Terrific!

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

POWERFUL SUB

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

Product Research

Features

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.
