Our take on the Rockford Fosgate PPS8-6

by John Pollard
Rockford Fosgate

Loud and clear
Rockford Fosgate built the PPS8-6 Punch Pro 6-3/4" 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.

PPS8-6 Punch Pro 6-3/4

Built tough
Each PPS8-6 speaker handles up to 100 watts RMS, while its 8-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. This speaker's 8-ohm impedance makes it a great candidate for systems with multiple midrange drivers.

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.

Our Product Research Team

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.

Features

Cone: The PPS8-6'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 PPS8-6 features spring post terminals that accommodate speaker wire up to 16 gauge.

Rockford Fosgate PPS8-6

Written By Larry W. Cook, Seguin, TX on Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
As one who wants sound quality of great dimensions I certainly wasn't disappointed with the RF mid-range driver. It overpowers anything in my previous system with wonderful fidelity unexceeded by anything I have ever heard in a car stereo. Installation was slightly harder than a bolt in accessory but a little thinking makes it easy enough that anyone with simple tools can do it. Response is great with any genre of music. Rock, grunge, country it matters not, this driver is great. As I love rock at volume, this driver does not disappoint. Pure vocals, great guitar riffs, and even bass is brought forth with true gusto.
Pros:
Easy enough for an afternoon installation with screw driver, needle nose pliers, and a 10mm socket . These drivers are a snap in a 2010 Silverado. Unbelievable sound is the result for just a little effort beyond bolt in accessories. Post wire terminals are as proffessional as I have ever seen in a car driver.
Cons:
No downloadable template in full size. Requires an extension to direct sound out of the small Silverado sound hole. Not for those with no mechanical abilities, but a friend with same is just as good!
