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.
Shallow Mount Design: The Rockford Fosgate Prime R2 Shallow
Subwoofer is designed and engineered with a much smaller motor assembly which
reduces the overall depth of the woofer allowing it to fit in shallower enclosures
and tighter locations of your vehicle.
Dual 4-ohm Voice Coils: This woofer features dual 4-ohm voice
coils to offer wiring flexibility. When the voice coils are wired in parallel the
woofer presents a 2-ohm load, when wired in series it presents an 8-ohm
Spring Post Assembly: The woofer features compression input
terminals with attached 16-gauge stitched tinsel lead wires. The nickel plated
spring posts will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs, and bare wire up
Sealed Box Volume: Rockford Fosgate recommends a sealed
enclosure with an optimum internal volume of 0.7 cubic feet (from 0.5 to 0.75
cubic feet is acceptable). Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a
woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction,
making them suitable to all types of music.
Vented Box Volume: Rockford Fosgate recommends a vented
enclosure with an internal volume of 1.4 cubic feet using a 4" diameter
x 13.7" long port tube; this yields a tuning frequency of 42 Hz. Ported
(or vented) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed
so they are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output
from less power. However, this efficiency comes at the expense of very low frequency
output (below 35 Hz).
