Wanted to try sealed 12", only had ported in the past. Pretty impressed overall for what i paid. Loud and tight using only moderate power. Only con was shape does not fit a sj forester backseat well. None of the other brands would either.

Pros: Sound quality

I LOOOVE this sub! This thing goes amazingly deep but still clear sound. I have this set to about 1/4 of its potential and I'm still amazed! it doesn't take up all the trunk space, I honestly don't even realize its there. The only thing I wish it had was a grill to cover the cone so things in the truck don't hit it but I just made a wooden from to go around it.

Pros: Amazing sound. Gets very deep (Vibrates everything in the car) Takes up little space

Cons: Only thing I wish it had was a grill to cover the cone from things in the truck.

Great bass from such an affordable Box. In fact it was so affordable I got a second and ran them in parallel. Got them hooked to a Rockford Fosgate Prime R500X1D. WOW! I would have thought I would of had to spend 4 times more to get that kind of Bass.

Pros: Great bass from such an affordable Box.

Cons: Surprised Rockford put spring loaded speaker connectors, I would have preferred screw down speaker wire binding post. Also as others mention, no Grill.

Great little sub for little money

Joe from Columbus, IN on 2/28/2018

2015 Nissan Altima

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was a little concerned about the low 200W RMS rating and powering it with a 350W RMS amp. Being smart with the gains and the amps' bass control knob really put this sub in a nice spot to fill out the bottom end and sound clean. I wanted the sealed box, and debated on the 10" version, but this is 4db more efficient, so it makes the most of your amps' power. Waiting for it to break in for sure. Should get louder and lower.

Pros: Inexpensive (scratch & dent) Efficient Sealed box

Cons: Low RMS handling

Great Sub

Shawn from Waianae, HI on 10/17/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I had the 10" version and loved it, but I began to miss the detail a 12" sub provides. Luckily, both versions of the have the same power requirements. Easy plug and play install and "boom" my detail was back. This sub is very musical. All of the lower notes are played back with tremendous accuracy. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to add a sub to their system.

Pros: Awesome detail

Cons: None

This sub flat rocks. It's powered with a JL Audio 5 channel with 300 to the sub. Very warm and full with no signs of letting up when it's cranked hard. Will be a very nice addition to most systems.

My little car can barely handle this monster. Packaged with the Rockford Fosgate R500X1D, I have to adjust the levels quite a bit to stop shaking the sides off my car! WOW this thing is a beast.

Awesome Value

This subwoofer will restore low end sound from a factory car sound system. While not quite up to par with some higher-end speakers like JL Audio, with the optimized sealed enclosure provides clean and accurate bass for those who have never experienced a subwoofer before. The bass is not going to shake your car, jitters on your mirrors at most, but is enough to feel that punchy thump most people look for without being too boomy. Granted it is a sealed enclosure and sub both designed by RF to work optimally, this subwoofer can provide adequate sound with great efficiency with only 200W of RMS output. I've tried higher wattage subs that didn't come close to this one in terms of accuracy and loudness. Audiophiles will notice how sometimes the subwoofer will output different loudness for different frequencies being most accurate and articulate around the 70-100Hz range, while slightly muddies in the surrounding frequencies. Don't let this fact sway you from buying this sub though because for most people, these are the areas of bass which are most prominent in most music. Overall it's a great value and will definitely be enough for the average joe seeking to improve their basic car stereo. Rockford Fosgate certainly has a musicality touch to their subwoofers. The sound they produce is signature RF and to some people it's better suited to rock music hence the brand name. Other subwoofers tend to have their own type of sound but RF did well designing this for numerous music ty

Pros: Great value, decent sound quality well-suited even for audiophiles (though at times may leave them wanting more). Very reliable. Signature RF sound.

Cons: Noticeable muddiness in some frequencies when mixing in low frequencies to other speakers (is not as pronounced at lower volumes)

Bumps pretty good for a single twelve.

Chris from Virginia Beach, Virginia on 11/28/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this subwoofer to add to my 2013 Scion Frs' audio system that was lacking in the bass department. This was the perfect thing for my needs, it doesn't overpower the speakers but adds the rich bass I was used to. It is fairly priced and will definitely get loud if you set it up right. It vibrates everything in the car but you can barely hear it on the outside which is good because I'm not trying to tick off my neighbors. (Exhaust does that quite well already :P) only bad thing is when I measured I didn't think about how the sides of the trunk slope downward so it only fits in the middle. But I didn't use it anyway so no real loss there.

Pros: Sounds great inside car, fair price, excellent quality.

Cons: Has to be in the middle but that was my error so I do not have any cons!

The subwoofer is awesome, it hits good and I got a great deal. I got it quick and I'm very happy with Crutchfrields's customer support, I didn't know I had to give them my number to confirm my order and an actual person called me and let me know so I wouldn't lose the product. They could of just never called me and I never would of gotten the product. I'm so thankful for that and it makes me want to come back to crutchfield again for future electronic purchases.

Pros: The sub came in great packaging, it was easy to setup, and I had it bumpin in minutes. Crutchfield delivered it quick and was very helpful in the process. Crutchfield says it's the

Cons: The only con is now I want to buy more stuff for my speaker system because my music sounds so good and that's a plus depending on how you look at it, but it's most definitely a con for my checkbook haha.

You only need one.

John S. from Richfield, Ut. on 7/19/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have always been skeptical about just having one sub, not anymore. 150 watt amp with this sub is plenty, I find myself turning my sub level output from my receiver down so I don't drowned out the rest of my system with bass. This sub hits hard and the clean bass cords are clean and sound good. If your into subsonic lows it will numb your body and wiggle your brain.

Pros: High quality, looks cool, simply to use.

Cons: I think they could of spared a grill.

Features

Enclosure: The Rockford Fosgate Prime R1-1X12 features a sealed enclosure constructed of 5/8" MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard). The enclosure is covered with high density black carpeting. The sealed enclosure features high current compression terminals on the left side of the box (when facing the woofer). The enclosure's terminals will accommodate up to 12 AWG speaker wire. The enclosure's speaker terminals present a 4-ohm load to your amplifier.

Dimensions:

  • Width: 17-3/4"
  • Height: 14-3/8"
  • Depth (base): 12-1/2" (13-1/4" including the subwoofer)
  • Depth (top): 7-1/4" (8" including the subwoofer)

Woofer: The R1-1X12 enclosure is loaded with a single Rockford Fosgate Prime R1S4-12 subwoofer. The R1S4-12 is a 12-inch, 4-ohm single voice coil subwoofer with a fiber reinforced painted paper-pulp cone and compressed foam surround.

CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R1S4-12 subwoofer conforms to CEA-2031 industry standards. This means the subwoofer has the capacity to handle its rated power under continuous demand, not instantaneous power handling, that over time, can damage voice coils.

A
Size. it will fit behind my 3rd row [ Bianca  Sep 16, 2018 ]
A
I wanted a 12" sub because I've heard it's a good balance between controlled bass and getting all those great low frequencies. I wanted a sealed enclosure because I've heard that's the best way to get tight bass. I chose the already enclosed version because I'm new to this lol. I chose this specific sub because it has great reviews on Crutchfield and I've heard Crutchfield knows their stuff. [ Ory  Mar 27, 2018 ]
A
Needed a good sub in a SEALED box that doesn't take up a lot of room at a price that won't make the wife mad. The 12" version of this has a 3db higher sensitivity than the 10", so it will play a lot louder for the same power. This is important given that the sub is only rated at 200W RMS. The amp I will power it with will have to be turned down from its 350W RMS capability. [ Joe  Feb 23, 2018 ]

This product was the most interesting to me. It fits the needs that I was looking for and I know about this company; they make good products in my opinion. I have high hopes for this sub! Can't want to put it in the car. [ KHRISTAPHER  Dec 25, 2017 ]

It's going to be raining on my delivery day. Was your whole sub/enclosure wrapped tightly in waterproof plastic inside the box? Obviously I'll try to get outside to the package quick, but I was curious. Thanks!

My sub was not enclosed. It is packed tightly inside the box with Styrofoam on the corners but I'm pretty sure there is something over it, it should be fine..

Q
Which amp would best pair with this?
[ Grant97  Sep 25, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
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.
[ Krissy  Sep 28, 2015 ]  Staff
Q
Could you run the fosgate 12 and another 8 off from one 300w amp?
[ Blake9250  Jun 26, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: While the size of the speaker doesn't come into play in this scenario the impedance and power handling does. Your second speaker will need to be at 4-ohm impedance (assuming you have a mono amp that is stable at 2-ohms) and it would be best to match the power handling to the Rockford. In this instance you would be running 300 watts to a system that could handle 400 RMS. That just about fits into our recommended minimum. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
