Built tough

Regular cab truck owners — Rockford Fosgate feels your pain. They've designed their Punch Stage 3 shallow enclosures so you don't have to suffer without good bass. And they build these boxes for strength and durability, with a computer-optimized design that uses medium-density fiberboard and thick carpeting.

Slim box, big bass

The P3S-1X8 sealed enclosure measures only 6-1/4" deep at its bottom, so it'll fit in the space behind many regular truck cab seats. It comes preloaded with a single 8" Punch Stage 3 Shallow dual voice coil subwoofer that'll handle up to 150 watts RMS. The enclosure's low 1-ohm total impedance means it'll drive your amp to its max — just make sure you pair it with a 1-ohm stable amplifier.

  • sealed truck-style enclosure with one 8" Punch Stage 3 shallow dual voice coil subwoofer

Enclosed Subwoofers 101

An enclosed subwoofer is a box with a subwoofer already installed. The advantage to buying an enclosed sub is that the manufacturer made the sub, then designed and built the box as a perfect match, so you'll get the best possible performance. Every enclosed sub has a maximum RMS power handling rating, so pair it with an amp with a similar RMS power rating to get the best performance.

Features

Punch Woofer: The enclosure houses one front-firing Rockford Fosgate Punch P3SD2-8 shallow mount 8" subwoofer. The dual 2-ohm voice coils are internally wired in parallel to present a 1-ohm load. The sub features a StampCast basket, an Anodized aluminum cone, and Santoprene surround. The integrated spider venting helps keep the subwoofer cool.

Enclosure: The truck-style sealed enclosure is constructed with 1/2" MDF and covered with high density black carpet. The enclosure features high current spring posts of the right side. The box is shallow enough to fit behind the front seat of many standard cab pickups.

Box Carpeting: The enclosure is finished with high-density black carpeting for superior durability.

Speaker Terminal: The subwoofer enclosure uses one pair of high current, spring loaded binding posts. The binding posts are located on the right side of the box and will accept pin connectors, single or dual banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.

Power Handling: The subwoofer can handle up to 150 watts RMS, 300 watts peak.

CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the P3S-1x8 conforms to CEA-2031 industry standards. This means the subwoofer has the capacity to handle its rated power under continuous demand, not just for an instant.

Dimensions: The depth dimensions listed in Features and Specs include the subwoofer's trim ring, which adds approximately 1 inch. The depth of just the enclosure is 5-1/4 inches at the base and 3-3/4 inches at the top.

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: It can be rewired to a 4 ohm load because the subwoofer in this loaded box is a dual 2-ohm voice coil model and wiring each voice coil in series will make it a 4 ohm load. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Aug 17, 2015 ]  Staff
