Loud and clear
Rockford Fosgate built the PPS4-8 Punch Pro 8" midrange speaker for people who like their music loud and clear. This highly efficient speaker uses technology developed for arena and stadium systems, so it's able to fill your vehicle with warm midrange detail, regardless of volume. If your system's already strong in the highs and lows, just install a pair of these speakers in your ride and they'll really fill out the sound.

PPS4-8 Punch Pro 8

Built tough
Each PPS4-8 speaker handles up to 125 watts RMS, while its 4-ohm voice coil shrugs off the high temperatures created by heavy use. A fiber-reinforced paper cone and W-style treated cloth surround keeps the speaker sounding and working great for a long time to come.

Note: This package contains one speaker and one grille. You'll need an external amplifier to drive this speaker properly — an in-dash stereo won't have enough power.

Features

Cone: The PPS4-8's fiber reinforced paper cone is specifically engineered for high SPL (Sound Pressure Level). The W-style surround is treated cloth.

VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.

FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.

IDHS T3 (Inductive Damping Heat Sink): The heat sink secures directly to the top of the magnet structure to improve system efficiency by reducing both distortion and back EMF (Electo-magnetic force).

Terminals: The PPS4-8 features spring post terminals that accommodate speaker wire up to 16 gauge.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very nice speakers for anyone one a budget. For the price of these and a good amp you can still stay under $100. Combined together these speakers will make you think you broke the bank. Nice clean midst and lows will blow you away.

Pros: Loud and clear.

Cons: May have to purchase or make your own speaker box.

Best speakers I've owned

Written By Alec, Belleville, Ks on Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've installed the 8" as well as the 6-3/4" speakers. If you love loud, crystal clear music these speakers are perfect! After enjoying them for six months I'm still impressed. I play them as loud as I can stand and I've yet to hear distortion. The 6" speakers are incredible but if you've got the space get these 8" speakers. Rockford Fosgate has made an amazing product! Simply put these are the best speakers I've ever heard in any car stereo. Just be sure to give them the power they need and be prepared to be impressed.

Pros: Incredible sound and volume. Quality craftsmanship.

Cons: None so far.

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The difference is resistance to power; the 4 ohm speaker has half the resistance to power than the 8 ohm speaker. This means that since the customer has the Alpine MRV-F300 which is rated out 50 watts RMS at 4 ohms, at 8 ohms the speaker would have more resistance and only be able to use 25 watts RMS from the amp. So more power is better is always better but especially in this scenario. The customer would be better suited to go with the 4 ohm version of the speaker. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Aug 10, 2014 ]  Staff
I have both of mine hooked up to a single Kenwood 350W amp. These are the heart and soul of my sound system, they fill in where I never thought imaginable. I did make my own box to house them in because I put them directly in the middle of my van between the rear seats so the box is only 22Lx9Hx9W and make sure to use some good MDF board or you'll blow it apart. These are basically mid-range and great at that, if your looking for deep bass, go subwoofer. If you want the highs go with a set of component speakers(6x8 or6x9 plus tweeter) a good value for overall sound. [ Bob  Aug 04, 2014 ]
