Overview

Our take on the Rockford Fosgate PPS4-8

Loud and clear
Rockford Fosgate built the PPS4-8 Punch Pro 8" midrange speaker for people who like their music loud and clear. This highly efficient speaker uses technology developed for arena and stadium systems, so it's able to fill your vehicle with warm midrange detail, regardless of volume. If your system's already strong in the highs and lows, just install a pair of these speakers in your ride and they'll really fill out the sound.

PPS4-8 Punch Pro 8

Built tough
Each PPS4-8 speaker handles up to 125 watts RMS, while its 4-ohm voice coil shrugs off the high temperatures created by heavy use. A fiber-reinforced paper cone and W-style treated cloth surround keeps the speaker sounding and working great for a long time to come.

Note: This package contains one speaker and one grille. You'll need an external amplifier to drive this speaker properly — an in-dash stereo won't have enough power.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Satisfied my desire for greater mid range tone. Does the job just fine; I can hear the guitar and vocals great now; really rounded out the sound. Speaker connectors were a little small for 14 AWG wire. Struggled to get the wire in the holes without removing a few strands.

Pros: Seems to be a good mid range speaker. Speaker grill looks nice in a truck.

Cons: Speaker connectors are a little small for 14 AWG wire.

Great sounds

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very nice speakers for anyone one a budget. For the price of these and a good amp you can still stay under $100. Combined together these speakers will make you think you broke the bank. Nice clean midst and lows will blow you away.

Pros: Loud and clear.

Cons: May have to purchase or make your own speaker box.

Best speakers I've owned

Alec from Belleville, Ks on 3/13/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've installed the 8" as well as the 6-3/4" speakers. If you love loud, crystal clear music these speakers are perfect! After enjoying them for six months I'm still impressed. I play them as loud as I can stand and I've yet to hear distortion. The 6" speakers are incredible but if you've got the space get these 8" speakers. Rockford Fosgate has made an amazing product! Simply put these are the best speakers I've ever heard in any car stereo. Just be sure to give them the power they need and be prepared to be impressed.

Pros: Incredible sound and volume. Quality craftsmanship.

Cons: None so far.

Features

Cone: The PPS4-8's fiber reinforced paper cone is specifically engineered for high SPL (Sound Pressure Level). The W-style surround is treated cloth.

VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.

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

IDHS T3 (Inductive Damping Heat Sink): The heat sink secures directly to the top of the magnet structure to improve system efficiency by reducing both distortion and back EMF (Electo-magnetic force).

Terminals: The PPS4-8 features spring post terminals that accommodate speaker wire up to 16 gauge.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I love my rock and roll so a factory sound system just is not going to cut it. Most people would add a sub woofer and leave it at that and that is a good start but your still really missing a lot of bass. You need to add some mid bass speakers to really round out the sound. I could not believe the difference these made in bringing out the sound I was looking for. [ David  Jan 30, 2019 ]

U want the best for your money exceptional quality merchandise and you can't get much better then Rockford Fosgate [ Stephen  Aug 02, 2018 ]

6 questions already asked

I'm not an expert, but I bought this speaker to help fill in the low end. So I would say to pair it with a tweeter. I hope this helps you. [ Fred  Jun 05, 2018 ]
This is perfect with the PPT tweeter. The speaker will sound good alone, just loud, but with the tweeter it will sould extremely loud and amazing. [ Harrison  Jun 05, 2018 ]
Use these as rear mids. They give great highs, loud, but make sure you have a high end front stage so you get the most accurate sound possible without the rear mids taking up the stage. [ Harrison  Jun 05, 2018 ]
They should be perfect for mids. I don't think they would make good subs at all. It's a great sounding speaker though. [ Blake  Sep 09, 2017 ]
it better use like rear mids [ MELVIN  Sep 09, 2017 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your speakers 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. [ Kenny  Mar 12, 2016 ]  Staff
Yes, it make great bass. I use this sub in a ported box with a 400 amp and it sounds great. [ jimmy  Sep 21, 2015 ]
It worked for me in my Ford Expedition and i am using the amp that came O E M with the vehicle. Now some factors you might consider is the price. There are certainly different options and applications. I would certainly check a few others before making a decision. [ BRANDY  Sep 21, 2015 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The difference is resistance to power; the 4 ohm speaker has half the resistance to power than the 8 ohm speaker. This means that since the customer has the Alpine MRV-F300 which is rated out 50 watts RMS at 4 ohms, at 8 ohms the speaker would have more resistance and only be able to use 25 watts RMS from the amp. So more power is better is always better but especially in this scenario. The customer would be better suited to go with the 4 ohm version of the speaker. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Aug 10, 2014 ]  Staff
I have both of mine hooked up to a single Kenwood 350W amp. These are the heart and soul of my sound system, they fill in where I never thought imaginable. I did make my own box to house them in because I put them directly in the middle of my van between the rear seats so the box is only 22Lx9Hx9W and make sure to use some good MDF board or you'll blow it apart. These are basically mid-range and great at that, if your looking for deep bass, go subwoofer. If you want the highs go with a set of component speakers(6x8 or6x9 plus tweeter) a good value for overall sound. [ Bob  Aug 04, 2014 ]
