Here's proof that slammin' sound doesn't have to cost a small fortune. The Punch Z line of subwoofers is designed for top-notch bass delivery at an affordable price. Rockford Fosgate has outfitted this 12" RFZ2412 with a sturdy, yet lightweight poly cone for consistent, powerful bass.

A dual laminated foam surround won't break down under adverse weather and road conditions, so you get great play for years. The stepped basket prevents the woofer from bottoming out by providing more room for its travel. And, if you're into visuals to match your great sound, check out the black rubber magnet boot. It looks great when the woofer is mounted in an enclosure with a rear window. 1-year warranty.

What's a component sub and why would I want one?

A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

Product Research



Polypropylene Cone: The cone is made with polypropylene, which provides durability while being lightweight and rigid. 

Dual Laminated Foam Surround: This woofer is made with a dual laminate foam surround. Dual lamination improves reliability by making the woofer mechanically stronger.

Aluminum Voice Coil Former: The voice coil former is aluminum for highly efficient heat transfer. This allows the use of multiple layers of high temperature copper windings for improved efficiency, and it improves power handling by effectively dissipating heat away from the voice coil windings.

LXcursion Stamped Basket: The Punch woofers use a durable and lightweight stamped cold rolled steel basket. To help prevent the spider from hitting the bottom of the basket ("soft bottoming"), the LXcursion basket features a deep step that moves the physical boundaries of the basket further away from the spider; this allows the cone far greater travel and, therefore more bass, without soft bottoming.

Hyper-Extended Pole Piece: The pole piece is extended in length to lower distortion and provide better low frequency response by operating the voice coil in a linear fashion throughout its travel in the magnetic field.

Vented Bumped Back Plate: The back plate has been bumped to allow the woofer more room for excursion without bottoming out. Additionally, "Aerovent" cooling efficiently and quietly circulates cool air around the voice coil using a back plate that is vented with a radiused aerodynamic back vent. By keeping the voice coil cooler, power handling is improved.

Rubber Magnet Boot: A black rubber boot covers the exposed edge of the magnet structure to improve the cosmetics of the woofer and protect the magnet during installation. The rubber boot looks great when the woofer is mounted in an enclosure with a window that allows you to see the back of the woofer. 


This woofer is designed to work best in the following enclosures: 

  • A sealed enclosure with an internal volume of 1.25 cubic feet (1.25-1.75 cu/ft acceptable)
  • A ported enclosure with an internal volume of 2.0 cubic feet (1.5-2.5 cu/ft acceptable) with a 4" diameter x 10.75" long port
