Rugged and powerful

The P300-8T comes equipped with a 8" woofer that's a perfect match for the built-in 300-watt amplifier. The sealed enclosure provides optimum sound quality, and the rugged industrial vinyl coating protects it wherever you choose to install it. You can use the low-pass crossover, phase switch, and bass boost to adjust the sub to work best in your vehicle. High- and low-level inputs allow you to connect it to any system, while the included remote knob lets you adjust bass intensity from the driver's seat. Best of all, you can pop out the "quick disconnect" power and signal connectors to remove the enclosure for some extra room when you need it.

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch P300-8P is an all-in-one bass solution featuring an 8" woofer and a built-in 300 watt RMS amplifier in a ported enclosure made from 5/8" MDF. Its slim form is designed to easily fit in pickup trucks and compact cars, while taking up as little usable space as possible.

Integrated Amplifier: The 8" woofer is powered by a built-in Class-D amplifier rated at 300 watts RMS/600 watts peak. The closed-loop designed ensures optimum performance of the woofer, amplifier, and enclosure system.

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, with the power and ground accepting up to 4 gauge wire (minimum 8 gauge recommended) 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 12" input harness has a Molex plug on one end and female stereo RCA jacks on the other. When using a speaker level input, the RCA jacks get cut off and spliced into the factory wires.

Input Switch: The Input Switch is set based on the incoming signal type:

  • Low-Level: Used when connecting and RCA level signal into the amp. Range is from 150mV to 6V.
  • High-Level: Used when connecting the subwoofer using a speaker-level input signal. Range is from 400mV to 12V.

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.

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 P300-8P 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 16-1/2' cable, with a 3.5mm stereo 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 Dimensions and Features/Specs include the subwoofer's grille, and the power and signal wiring harnesses, which add approximately 1.0" and 1.5" respectively. The depth of just the enclosure is 4.875" and the width without wiring is 17.750".

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
I wanted to make the system in my 2016 Silverado Crew sound similar to the Bose that comes in the LTZ pkg,hoping this 8 does it without overwhelming bass [ LES H  Jan 23, 2020 ]
A
I installed the 10 inch in my boat and it totally rocks. Unfortunately the 10 won't fit under the seat of my truck, so I went with the 8 inch version. I'm confident this will do the trick. [ James  Dec 31, 2019 ]

All-In-One [ Scott  Mar 23, 2019 ]

Recommended by advisor and would fit my vehicle [ Ireneo  Feb 19, 2019 ]

Lots of watts for the money and it will fit nicely in the upper shelf in my Lincoln Town Car. [ Petrolburner  Dec 26, 2018 ]

Q
I have a 2013 Jetta with factory radio and no built-in amp. Will I need a line output converter, or can i just use the RCA to speaker wire connector?
[ Raymo41  Jun 18, 2020 ]

I have 2020 Hyundai Elantra with an 8" sub and I just unhooked the speaker wire from my factory sub and ran that wire to the high level input on the sub and it was as simple as that. You do not need a loc or rca's to power this sub. You can "tap" into your full range rear speaker(s) and run regular speaker wire to the high level input or if you have a factory sub you can use that as I did. If you have any questions the guy's at Crutchfield are absolutely awesome and they will get you lined out. This powered sub is OUTSTANDING!
[ Jared  Jun 18, 2020 ]
A
Yes, this unit allows for speaker level input (how I'm using it with a factory Toyota stereo) and also has an auto power on/off feature. You'll need access to some of your factory speaker wires (which you'll tap into using the appropriate included wiring), and power (12V, I used an 8 gauge amp wiring kit to give myself plenty of headroom). Enjoy, it's a nice little unit!
[ Joel  Jun 18, 2020 ]
A
What I ended up doing, stock Ford Fiesta radio, was splice into the rear speaker wires and running those to this amps supplied adapter for the speaker inputs.
[ Tanner  Jun 18, 2020 ]
Q
Hi. I have an older JVC Receiver (around 10yrs old) and there is only one subwoofer output. Can I used this single output from my receiver or should I use a pair for external AMPS (not for subwoofer)?
[ Manuel  Jun 08, 2020 ]

I'm not really sure I have I have a pioneer 490bs that has a single sub output and I am just using a self power sub and it works great for what I'm using if for.
[ Kevin  Jun 08, 2020 ]
A
If your external amp will be feeding good quality, full range speakers, I would go that way. A pair of good 6X9's can belt out good quality low end while improving system impact in the mid bass & high end.
[ MIKE  Jun 08, 2020 ]
Q
can this be laid on its back so the grill is up?
[ Joe  Feb 16, 2020 ]

A
Yes, that's how I had it configured in my car [facing up on the back floor mat].
[ Peter  Feb 16, 2020 ]
A
Certainly. That's how I have mine, secured by heavy duty Velcro.
[ Kadell  Feb 16, 2020 ]
A
It sure can!! I have mine on its back on top of my back seat. It fully ROCKS
[ Michael  Feb 16, 2020 ]
A
Yes, but not going to sound good. I recommend you stand it up and face it toward the back of the trunk or what if you have one.
[ Dana  Feb 16, 2020 ]
Q
Just bought dmh 1500 nex pioneer head unit can i connect this product to it? What all is required to do so
[ Zachary  Jan 14, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
Hi Zachary, thank you for your question! You will be able to connect this powered sub via RCA to the subwoofer preamp output on the back of your new Pioneer receiver. You will need RCA cables and an 8 gauge amp wiring kit. The Rockford Fosgate RFK8i will have all you need for your installation.
[ Jess  Jan 28, 2020 ]  Staff
A
My install was done using speaker level input because I kept the factory head unit. Speaker level also fed a kicker key amp used in the system in a 2019 Transit, 8 pass van. The starting battery is under the driver's seat, & there was room for the small amp also. My sub is velcroed to the van sidewall in front of the second row bench seat. Power, ground, & speaker signal available 3' away. Works great!!!
[ MIKE  Jan 14, 2020 ]
Q
Will this fit in my 2008 Toyota Tacoma?
[ Colby  Dec 03, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
it will fit under the back seat of an F150 but not sure about the Tacoma. It is very small and powerful for its size.
[ Daniel  Dec 04, 2019 ]
A
Not for sure about the Tacoma but it fit nicely in my standard cab Ranger & there is hardly any room behind the seats. I love mine
[ Ricky  Dec 03, 2019 ]
Q
Can this be connected to my 2014 ford flex with touch screen? if so, how?
[ James  May 25, 2019 ]

A
I installed this sub, against the side wall, behind the drivers seat in my 2019 Transit pass van. I had already run the high level speaker wires from the head unit to under the drivers seat where I hid the Kicker Key amp. The battery is under the seat, so hooking up the sub was easy. Power & speaker level feed for the sub within 2 feet. Works great. Plenty of sub for this van. The Key has plenty of punch for the 6. 6 3/4" Rockford speakers I upgraded to. Thank You Crutchfield.
[ MIKE  May 28, 2019 ]
A
It sure can if you use a line out converter. I purchased Audiocontrol LC6i from crutchfield. It allows you to keep factory stereo and add amps and stuff since it gives you 3 pre amps out.
[ Michael  May 25, 2019 ]
A
Hi/low converter spliced into door speaker wire. Very common and simple install.
