Product Research

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch P300-12 is an all-in-one bass solution featuring a 12" woofer and a built-in 300 watt RMS amplifier in an enclosure made from 5/8" MDF.

Closed-Loop Design: The closed-loop designed ensures optimum performance of the woofer, amplifier, and enclosure system.

Integrated Amplifier: The 12" woofer is powered by a built-in amplifier rated at 300 watts RMS/600 watts peak.

Quick Disconnect Power/Ground: The power, ground, and remote turn-on wires attach to a quick disconnect terminal block, so the subwoofer can be easily removed when you need more storage space. Each terminal is a set screw, the power and ground will accept up to 4 gauge wire (minimum 8 gauge recommend) and the remote turn-on will accept up to 8 gauge wire.

Audio Inputs: The amplifier section will accept either a line level (RCA) or speaker level signal. The included 10" input harness has a Molex plug on one end and female stereo RCA jacks on the other. When using a speaker level input, cut the RCA jacks off and splice into the remaining wires. Adjust the Input Level switch to match your input type (Hi/Lo).

Auto Turn-On: The Auto Turn-On switch offers three options:

  • REM: the amp turns on when +12 volts DC is applied to the remote terminal
  • DC Offset: the amp turns on when a 6 volt surge is detected on the signal inputs (from a speaker level source)
  • Audio: the amp turns on when an incoming audio signal is detected (can be used with line level or speaker level inputs)

Gain control: The rotary gain control allows you to match the output level of your headunit to the input level of the powered subwoofer (100mV-3V).

Crossover: The 12 db/oct low-pass crossover is always engaged; the crossover point is adjustable from 50 to 200 Hz.

Bass Boost: Use the rotary dial to adjust the bass boost; continuously variable from 0 to +12 dB, centered at 45 Hz.

Phase: A switch allows you to reverse the phase of the subwoofer (0°, 180°).

Protection Circuit: The P300-12 is equipped with thermal overload, over voltage, and short circuit protection. The amplifier will shut down if any of these situations is encountered.

Punch Level Control: A wired Punch Level Control is included so you can adjust the output level from the driver's seat. The remote has a bracket to mount it under the dash. The included 17-1/2' cable, with a 3.5mm mini-plug on each end, connects the remote to the subwoofer.

Note: The Punch Level Control measures approximately 2-3/8" wide x 1" high x 2" deep (3-1/2" deep including the knob and cable).

Dimensions: The dimensions listed in Features and Specs include the subwoofer's grille, and the power and signal wiring harnesses, which add approximately 7/8 of an inch and 1/2 an inch respectively. The depth of just the enclosure is 10-7/8 inches at the base and 7-1/8 inches at the top. The width without wiring is 19-7/8 inches.

I have one of these and love it! I need something for our boat and like the idea of getting two of these for under the seats. My question: is this water resistant at all? The location for it is not likely to get wet but just in case..

Nit sure if it's waterproof but it may be too much bass for fishing
[ michael  Jun 12, 2019 ]
A
I wouldn't recommend it. I don't think it's water resistant at all. They sell waterproof speakers at crutchfield and that's what I would recommend, they are a little more pricey but you won't ruin your stuff if it gets wet, or worst case scenario, it get wet and catches fire.

Will adding this to my existing setup of a new radio headunit and 4 after market speakers. (2 kenwood excelons and 2 jvc), hurt the over all performance of the headunit/speakers themselves??
[ Anthony  Feb 25, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
No it shouldn't.
[ Matt  Feb 26, 2019 ]
A
I don't believe it will. I added this to a factory system and it sounds good. This setup runs off its own amp so it shouldn't affect your aftermarket speakers or head unit. But I will warn you that this sub setup doesn't compare to a real subwoofer setup. You get what you pay for and definitely falls short to a cheap sub in a cheap box with a cheap amp. But for the price and convenience it will add some bass.
[ KEVIN  Feb 25, 2019 ]

This is a subwoofer with a built-in amplifier if you're looking to add Lowe's Bass to your system this works pretty good

[ JEFFERY  Feb 28, 2019 ]
A
No I don't think so, I personally have 4 alpine and two tweeters. It sounds great depending on how you hook it up though it's gonna send all the bass to the subwoofer which is how I have it. And it's all highs and mods through the speakers. And bass through the sub
[ Josue  Feb 25, 2019 ]
A
I dont think it will. Reason being, that you can control the level if bans that you prefer. Should be fine.
[ ANTHONY  Feb 25, 2019 ]
A
Won't hurt performance. But you'll get much better results from a amp sub setup.
[ Anthony  Feb 25, 2019 ]
A
No it won't. That's assuming that there is either a rear out or sub out and the back of your deck. However, even if you have to tap one of your line outs for signal there's no way any normal human being would notice a difference.
[ ERNEST  Feb 25, 2019 ]

Q
If I were to connect my rear speakers to this as a high level input, which gauge of speaker wire should I use to do that? Because I bought some 14 gauge wire but compared to the stock wire going to the speakers from my stock head unit, the 14 gauge is way bigger.
[ Myles  Oct 02, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
The wiring that would plug into the side of the box for inputs is about the same gauge wiring as a factory speaker wire
[ Brandon  Oct 09, 2018 ]
A
14 gauge won't hurt, but you don't need to go any larger than the gauge that is connecting to the speaker. I used 16 I believe.

A
It should be. I have had the same unit in two different cars: 2013 Toyota Avalon and 2012 Lexus RX 350. It is pretty easy to install. It just needs signal sent to it from another speaker. I spliced mine into the rear speakers on the Avalon, and spliced it into the amp on the lexus. I would leave your head unit alone.

I bought this for my wife's 08 Chevy Cobalt 4dr. I am not sure if it is because her battery is located in the trunk of the car so close to the Sub-woofer (hence the shorter power run) instead of under the hood, but with one of the seats laid forward that sucker can hit hard. Now Remember I am only running 4 ft of power cable from the battery to the box because of the proximity of cars battery...that may make a huge difference/deciding factor. But it is a A+ to me. Bless my wife's heart but the other day we had to make a run up to Fayetteville, Arkansas (2 hr drive). And She let me open it up and play both Metallica's, Ride The Lightening and Master Of Puppets back to back and I was VERY impressed with the Kick and enjoyment/quality. Recommend...Great Bang For the Buck..From Linkin Park to her Katy Perry....Very satisfied..
[ JOSEPH  Aug 06, 2016 ]
A
Yes this is a great addition if you are looking for something that is a noticable difference but doesn't break your trunk. As for adding it to your stock audio system I dont know if you have an aftermarket radio head unit but if you do it will be very easy. If you are just using your stock head unit, I would recommend an upgrade, however if there is a subwoofer wire you can just connect directly to that, otherwise you may find a wire that has 12 volts constant and do all your connections and stuff. As for the install it will pretty much be the same as a regular subwoofer, IE you still need to route the power wires and rca wires through the car, the only thing is you do not need to hook up the amp to the subwoofer as it is installed in the enclosure. Hope this helps!
[ Preston  Aug 03, 2016 ]
A
This will require some minor splicing into the speakers if you do not have an AUX out on the back of your head unit. Power has to be run from the battery and ground in the rear. I spent an hour and a half putting mine in. I also pulled up carpet and bumpers to hide all wires, so it is a quick install.
[ Chad  Aug 03, 2016 ]
A
THis accepts high level inputs so you should be able to tap into your speaker wires for a signal. I had it installed in an 08 eos and it helped the bass a lot. Vw'S have a lot of steel in the trunk behind your seats, so it does need to be turned up quite a bit to get the full effect.
[ JAMES  Aug 03, 2016 ]
A
Yes you can. I have a 2013 Jetta only without the Fender system. But you'll just need a line out converter that you hook to the speaker wires on the back of your radio and that will activate the audio to the subwoofer if you don't have RCA outputs on the radio. If your radio has RCA outputs, then you can just use those. You'll need an Amplifier wiring kit as well to power the subwoofer/built-in amp.
[ Dustin  Aug 03, 2016 ]
Q
Thinking of adding this to an 07 Avalon with the JVC Symphony factory stereo that has an 8" factory woofer connected to a 100w factory amplifier. The only convenient speaker leads are those going to the woofer. Being a dual hookup can or should I use the amplified woofer speaker wires or tap into those with an LOC and use RCA inputs? Or neither?
[ Kyrocket  Jun 13, 2016 ]

What's really nice is that you can use the regular leads and you can change the power input from low and high. Long story short go ahead and use the regular speaker cables.

Well i had similar situation in my gmc terrain i spliced into sub wire from factory amp and installed a high level to rca adapter
[ Chris  Jun 14, 2016 ]
A
THis unit accepts either high or low level inputs. You can use either. If you use an loc, I would spend a little more and get a good one. Audiosource lc2ib is a good one. http://www.crutchfield.com/p_161LC2IB/AudioControl-LC2iB-Black.html

Like Gordon said probably any would work but here is my caution. Self powered units have a distinct advantage of being able to custom tune the amp/crossover/speaker/box. This yields a distinctly more efficient design since there are no variables. I have no idea how this particular box is designed but if you had a choice I would go with the original speaker even if it was a little more $$$.
[ Andy  May 21, 2016 ]
A
Don't see why any one would not work, may have to change.the crossover,for simplicity I would stay with the oem
[ Gordon  Apr 08, 2016 ]
Q
Got this for my 02 Jetta. When tuning the subs amp, the only way I can get satisfactory bass is with the gain, x over, and boost all the way up. Without everything maxed out, it gives a little bass the speakers can't give, but doesn't at all give the bass you can "feel". I know this sub is only 300 watts, but heck I've heard 8" subs with more boom. Am I doing something wrong or is this just how the sub is?

Put in my sons Honda. We adjusted a little on the high side, but nothing over 75%. Stereo does need to be above 20 for it really to start thumping, but then will rattle the windows out of the car. I can't tell you why it's having to be maxed out.
[ MATTHEW  Feb 23, 2016 ]
A
It was kind of the same way with me. I had my bass control knob all the way up, with the bass boost turned up to about half. If you have your x over all the way up you arent going to get any bass because the x over will br eliminating all the bass frequencies. Turn the x over to about 30 or so and I didnt have to set my gain to anything because I found that it didnt change the sound for me all that much. I agree with you that you cannot really feel the bass unless you have a song bass boosted or a song that is high bass.

Anyone use this in a Jeep Wrangler TJ with a soft top? Does it fit in the trunk area behind the back seat and how does it sound top up and down? Thanks BW

Im not positive about the jeep, but it fit in my VW jetta. As for thr highs and lows its actually pretty decent! The first time you listen to it and crank the volume it will bring a smile to your face. The only downside is that you will need to turn the bass boost up to about 6db out of 12 (or whatever half is) to get loud bass without distortion. Anything higher will distort easy snd anything lower will be less than satisfying, just in my opinion.

im running it in a 2000 Camaro, in the trunk. Great sounding sub! My car is a convertible, so you do lose a lot when the top is down. However, there is plenty of headroom to crank this one up to compensate.

Put it in the back of my sons 1992 Honda Accord LX. Should have no problem fitting in the back of a jeep. It will give you the sound you want for a great price. Install was fairly easy. Just make sure you buy the wiring kit from Crutchfield. Takes the guess work out of the equation. Would want to find a way to secure it to your Jeep to make sure no one steals it.

Considering this sub for a new Rockford system in my 07 Monte Carlo. Does anyone have one of these installed in a trunk in a larger passenger vehicle? I see a lot on here installed in truck cabs and compact hatches, where the sub is in the drivers cabin. Just wondering if there's enough kick out of this for a trunk install on a larger vehicle. I don't need to rattle the neighborhood either!! :P Thanks in advance.

Ladd, I have it installed in a 2008 Ford Fusion and yes you can definitely hear it. I have 7x10s installed in the rear deck that handle mid-bass as well but the P300-12 handles the low bass very well. It doesn't rattle too much but I have Dynomat installed various places and spacers in my rear tag. Hope this helps. ~Greg

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The sub in the enclosure doesn't exactly match the stand alone subs offered by Rockford Fosgate as component subs, so we can't give you a specific model number. In terms of power handling it is between the P1 and the P2. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

It comes with an adhesive strip that has velcro on one side. For me, It has stayed in place perfectly with only the strip, even through a wreck. The strip is slightly longer than the bottom of the subwoofer so you can even put it partially on the side so it cab stick on the side of your trunk for extra support.

In the installation instructions, on page 6, under step 6, the following note exists: NOTE: In the event that a switched +12V is not available, either DC offset or Audio sense can be selected for amplifier turn-on. This makes me believe one could skip the remote wire all together, no? So I guess that begs the question, when does it turn off? Just as soon as no signal is present?

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: You will need to provide them with separate power and you can do that by either running them through a power distribution block or directly to the battery.

i got the rockford cables which were recommender for install from the sub to the receiver. works like a champ. If you are going to install yourself you must get, but if you are going to have installed professionally from a shop they would have cables, hopefully Rockford, but some other brand none the less. Enjoy the sub. Set the control nearby. Perfect.

Hi, Brendan. Well, this unit comes with the sub enclosure, the removable terminal block, remote control + wire, and mounting options. It does *not* come with the electrical equipment required to hook up the electrical connections. You will need to provide, at a minimum, 1) a power wire (see product info for recommended wire gauge), 2) signal wire from your HU to the sub and 3) ground connection. These last three wires/cables are *not* included with the Rockford P300-12 package, but from my understanding they are typical components in any of the "subwoofer wiring packages" that you can find on CF or anywhere else.

This is a powered sub so the AMP and everything is inside the box. You will need to purchase a wiring kit to wire it into your existing electrical. I ordered the following along with this Sub: Rockford Fosgate RFK4 Amplifier Wiring Kit 4 gauge Power Item #: 575RFK4 and Rockford Fosgate RFK8I Amplifier Wiring Kit 8 gauge Power Item #: 575RFK8I Also don't forget to get a distribution Block (not necessarily required if you're just doing a single sub).

Installing this in an 09 civic sedan with factory non nav system. Should I put a LC2i audio controller in the set up? I can't get a straight answer from anyone about bass reduction or avc in my car.
[ Emmett  Apr 15, 2014 ]
1 answer
A
The LC2i is a great product, but not totally needed for this application. Audio Inputs: The amplifier section will accept either a line level (RCA) or speaker level signal. The included 10" input harness has a Molex plug on one end and female stereo RCA jacks on the other. When using a speaker level input, cut the RCA jacks off and splice into the remaining wires. Adjust the Input Level switch to match your input type (Hi/Lo).

I just ordered this thing and it hadn't even gotten here yet and I'm thinking I made a big mistake purchasing this for my 98 Chevy tracker (soft top) for behind the back seat, I'm afraid it won't perform at all! I've had many different systems miserly ported in trucks of cars and I've noticed when same systems where inside of SUVs they lost almost all their bang and my vehicle being a soft top and this being a low powered small sealed Box in a full open space I think I'm in for a huge disappointment..... Any thoughts or better yet anyone have any experiences with this particular set up in a large cabin or open top vehicle?

I have a Ford F150 Extended Cab and I quickly replaced my first one when it was stolen with another one. I love the punch and the quality is everything Crutchfield said it would be. Try talking with a specialist with the tech team...they really want you to be happy not just sell you something!

I would say a major factor in whether or not you'll like it is what kind of music you listen to. I put it behind the back seats of an 09 Escape and I'm perfectly satisfied with it. I listen to, rock mostly, some punk and metal too. It's perfect for me. It adds feel to the kick drum/double bass, and fills out the rest of the frequencies well. If you're into rap and you're trying to go around bumping the neighborhood, this probably isn't what you're looking for. Keep in mind it has it's own separate volume knob so you can adjust the mix to your liking which is really nice. Overall I'd say it hits plenty hard enough for anyone not trying to be obnoxious.

Hi Caleb, I purchased this subwoofer, to fit in my F-150, regular cab. The sub sits behind both seats, facing the center armrest, about 2 inches away. I did a lot of research about ideal placement, with various custom installers. Ofcourse, the ideal situation would be to point the sub to an empty area (closed trunk or rear hatch), but unless you are looking to change vehicles, you must work with what you have. The reason I selected the 12" sub was to compensate for the environment. I am very happy with my choice. The large sub speaker moves a lot of air! The tight enclosure was pre-designed specifically for this sub. I enjoy the deep and strong bass! The 300 watt built in amp does the trick. Another advantage of having it right behind the seat, is that you can "feel" the bass. Check out the frequency range. It starts in the 30's. I think in your situation, with the soft top, you have no choice but to get power. 300 watts of sub, plus say 75+ from your door speakers, should drown much of the road noise. Compare the environment to a big and noisy concert auditorium. The closer you are to the stage and the music, the less the interruption from the crowd. I hope this helped. Good luck!
[ David  Feb 17, 2014 ]

Thanks Richard, don't have much choice now I ordered it. Looks like I'll have to give it a chance, as long as I can hear good low notes and feel it some I'll probably be happy enough.... Have the distinct feeling it'll sound allot like a free air setup and just sound floppy, I've ran into this before.. I took a system out of a Pontiac sunfire that slammed very hard and put in into my Cherokee sport and is was night and day .... it sounded awful in the jeep

I just recently purchased this powered sub for a 84 mustang hatchback. I know your setup is totally different but I have been very pleased with the performance out of this 12" sub. Having a hard top as you well know helps the lows bounce around in the cabin, so I don't know if you will have the same luck with the soft top. I still say give it a try you might be suprised. :-)

The amp will not even turn on with out power from a remote wire. If your head unit does not have a REM wire the best solution is to run another power wire from your battery with a switch inline to turn your amp on and off on your own.

Hooked it up to a 2003 Lexus ( factory system ) it made the factory system sound like an expensive custom system !! Very impressed !
[ MATT  Jan 06, 2014 ]

If you going to tap off and use speaker level input your going to need a low/high input converter to wire this. I believe schorce makes one pretty cheap. And yes your going to need a 12v switched source to turn amp on & off with ignition. My recommendation is don't get this box. I had it for about a month and it just doesn't have enough volume especially if you have it in a trunk (can barely hear it even with it turned up.) I sold it to my buddy with a jeep & got a sub box, 2 fosgate 10's and a Hifonics amp all for cheaper online then what I paid for this setup & it's a night and day difference in sound and quality.

I just purchased it 2 weeks ago. it does not come with necessary wiring to connect. it still runs through the Subwoofer wiring kit that would need to be purchased separately. it does come with a level adjust dial that can be mounted pretty much anywhere in the car. As for the power, i understand it as a remote turn on with direct power supply through the subwoofer wiring kit
[ Japheth  Jan 05, 2014 ]

I stand corrected. A speaker-wire to RCA plug converter is included. No need for it but you will need RCA wires to run to the sub's location. So, everything you need to connect this unit is included in the packaging. A very well pre thought kit RF has offered. GL
[ Chopt  Jan 05, 2014 ]

I'll give it a stab. It requires a switched 12v power source. If you're stereo is equipped, connect it's blue antenna's switched power wire to the sub's switched power inlet. If I understand you correctly. You plan to use your speaker wires for the sub's signal input. You'll need a seperate speaker-wire to RCA plug converter. That is not included. Good luck,
