About the Rockford Fosgate P2D2-12

Standout performance

Rockford Fosgate showcases their fanatical commitment to sonic excellence in the Punch Series of speakers, amps, and subs. If you like to listen to potent, powerful music — and feel it too — Punch components will give you impressive sound that'll stand out in a crowd.

Cutaway view

Bulletproof bass

Engineers at Rockford Fosgate designed the P2D2-12 12" subwoofer to dish out the kind of powerful low end you crave in your ride. Its responsive paper cone is reinforced with the same Kevlar® fibers used in bulletproof vests so you get the best of both worlds — warm bass that's exceptionally hard-hitting. Rockford Fosgate uses a new technique to attach the oversized rubber surround to the cone that increases available cone area up to 25%, so this sub can push more air for even bigger bass.

Made for heavy excursion

This P2 sub features an extended pole piece and bumped backplate that leaves more room for heavy excursion, so it'll hit deeper lows without "bottoming out." Special venting keeps the copper-clad aluminum voice coils cool through heavy use for consistent bass performance over time.

The dual 2-ohm voice coils allow you to wire the sub for 1-ohm impedance to get maximum power output, or for 4-ohm impedance if you're using multiple subs. The P2D2-12 sub works equally well in a sealed or ported enclosure, so you can choose the kind of bass you want for your system.

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch P2D2-12 is a 12-inch subwoofer with dual 2Ω voice coils. The sub features a StampCast steel frame, quick-release compression terminals, a Kevlar fiber reinforced paper cone, and Santoprene surround. An anodized aluminum voice coil former and spider venting help keep the subwoofer cool.

Dual 2Ω Voice Coils: The dual 2Ω voice coils offer wiring flexibility; when wired in parallel the woofer presents a 1Ω load, when wired in series the woofer presents a 4Ω mono load.

Steel Basket: The P2D2-12 subwoofer features a StampCast steel basket for added rigidity.

Compression Terminals: The P2D2-12 features spring post terminals which accommodate speaker wire up to 10 gauge.

CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the P2D2-12 subwoofer conforms to CEA-2031 industry standards. This means the subwoofer has the capacity to handle power under continuous demand, not instantaneous power handling, that over time, can damage voice coils.

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

Trim Ring: To improve the cosmetic look, a decorative trim ring is included that mounts over the flange of the woofer. When using the cast aluminum trim ring the woofer is first mounted with four screws, then the ring is placed on top of the woofer, aligning the final four holes of the woofer with ring. The other four screws are used for these holes to mount the ring and woofer to the enclosure. Without the trim ring the mounting height of the woofer is just over 7/8 of an inch, with the trim ring it's approximately 1-1/16 inches. The diameter of the trim ring is 13-5/16 inches.

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box: Rockford recommends a sealed enclosure with an optimum internal volume of 1.02 cubic feet (from 0.7 to 1.8 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.

Ported Box: Rockford recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 1.79 cubic feet using one 4" diameter x 10" long port; this yields a tuning frequency of 40 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 34 Hz).

Q
Does this woofer sound best, and go deepest in the ported Rockford Fosgate P3-1X12 enclosure, or in the Sound Ordnance Bass Bunker BB12-200V vented box?
[ Lanny  Jun 28, 2020 ]

Not sure why you're asking this question since the Rockford Fosgate P3-1X12 is a loaded enclosure, by that I mean it's already got the subwoofer driver in the enclosure. According to Rockford Fosgate the system is tuned to 38Hz. Depending on the size of your car, cabin gain can be substantial increasing bass output below a certain frequency determined by the size of your car's cabin. The Sound Ordnance Bass Bunker BB12-200V is a smaller enclosure and until you mount the driver into the enclosure you can't determine (you can approximate the system response with software but you need to know the port size and the driver volume which must be subtracted from the enclosure volume) whether the port size is appropriate for the driver. With all that said neither enclosure is actually large enough for the Rockford Fosgate Punch P3D2-12 driver (the driver used in the Rockford Fosgate P3-1X12). The optimum enclosure size is on the order of 4.7 cubic feet. So unless you've got a large car with room to fit that huge box I think you're better just buying the Rockford Fosgate P3-1X12 loaded enclosure and call it a day. And don't forget that since the 2 ohm voice coils are wired in parallel this will present a 1 ohm load on your amplifier, so make sure your amplifier is stable into 1 ohm. You could remove the driver from the enclosure and wire the voice coils in series which would present a 4 ohm load on your amplifier. Depending on your amplifier's capability this may be necessary.

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.

Q
What does the open box or? scratch and dent mean
[ Ian  Aug 18, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
Scratch & dent are open-box items that have minor cosmetic damage. They may be missing non-essential accessories. In some cases the manufacturer's accessories have been replaced with generic equivalents. The manufacturer's warranty applies.

Q
How many speakers will I need too make it a a 1 ohm ?
[ Marcus  May 27, 2014 ]
1 answer
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Rockford Fosgate P2D2-12 can be wired to 1 ohm since it's a 2-ohm dual voice coils. You'll need to wire the subwoofer in parallel in order to achieve a 1 ohm impedance meaning you'll take the negatives and wire those together and the same with the positive. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
