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.

Engineers at Rockford Fosgate designed the P1S4-12 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.

The P1S4-12 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." This sub works equally well in a sealed or ported enclosure, so you can choose the kind of bass you want for your system.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 200 and 375 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch P1S4-12 is a 12-inch subwoofer with a single 4Ω voice coil. The sub features a StampCast steel frame, quick-release compression terminals, a Kevlar fiber reinforced paper cone, and NBR surround (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber). An anodized aluminum voice coil former and spider venting help keep the subwoofer cool.

Steel Basket: The P1S4-12 subwoofer features a StampCast steel basket for added rigidity.

Compression Terminals: The P1S4-12 features spring post terminals which accommodate speaker wire up to 10 gauge.

CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the P1S4-12 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 PVC 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. The trim ring increases the mounting height of the woofer to 13/16 of an inch.

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 3" diameter x 6" long port; this yields a tuning frequency of 36 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 32 Hz).

Good customer reviews. I've also always been a fan of Rockford, speakers were cheap and they delivered just the right amount of power I need to put into my sisters car. [ Jerod  Feb 24, 2016 ]
A
I already have two. I blew one of them, so obvious I need to replace it by getting another one. Overall it is a great sounding speaker with very nice quality at a(n) affordable price. Very recommended because most stores will try to push what they are sponsored by (speaker brand) without giving you the full story on everything. Do your research! [ Kevin  Jan 03, 2016 ]

Love rockford products [ Jason  Dec 29, 2015 ]

Q
Can it be rewired to 4 ohm?
[ Kawaii  Mar 01, 2017 ]
3 answers
A
depends on how you wire it to the amp, the amp should b rated at 4 ohms per channel on 2 channel amps or 1 channel mono amps. if you have only 1 amp and 2 or more subs the ohms is split or doubled depending on how its connected. parallel connections split the ohms to the amp, series connections doubles the ohms to the amp.
[ charles  Mar 03, 2017 ]
A

[ MITCHELL  Jul 14, 2015 ]

14 Gauge or 16 Gauge wire will work fine both inside the sub box and from the sub box to the amplifier.

Q
What amp is most compatible with this sub? And if I had a performance teknique 800watt 2 channel amp connected, could that damage my sub?

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.
