About the Rockford Fosgate R2D2-12

Rockford Fosgate's Prime R2 subs deliver strong bass in your car, and they are definitely built to last. The R2D2-12 sub features a 12" mica-injected polypropylene cone that works with a high-density poly-foam surround to punch out fat, deep notes. Rockford Fosgate stitches the tinsel leads that carry the signal to the voice coils directly into the cone — they'll hang tough through heavy use so you get consistent, reliable performance. The stamped solid-steel frame offers venting usually found in high-end subs that keeps this sub running cool.

Dual 2-ohm voice coils allow you to wire this sub for 1- or 4-ohm impedance, giving you more flexibility in setting up your system. Rockford Fosgate optimizes this Prime sub for both sealed and ported enclosures so you can choose the type of bass you want in your ride.

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Prime R2D2-12 is a 12-inch subwoofer with dual 2Ω voice coils. The sub features a StampCast steel frame, quick-release compression terminals, and a mica injected polypropylene cone. An anodized aluminum voice coil former and spider venting help keep the subwoofer cool.

Steel Basket: The R2D2-12 subwoofer features a StampCast steel basket for added rigidity.

Compression Terminals: The Prime R2D2-12 features spring post terminals which accommodate speaker wire up to 12 gauge.

CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R2D2-12 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.

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box: Rockford recommends a sealed enclosure with an optimum internal volume of 1.02 cubic feet (from 0.75 to 1.25 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 4" diameter x 9.3" long port; this yields a tuning frequency of 45 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 40Hz).

Went with the Rockford Fosgate Prime Component Speakers for the rest of the car and wanted a good affordable sub to match. Also Bought the RF Prime amplifier for it. A matching speaker system is always a safe way to ensure quality sound. [ Dylan  Sep 15, 2017 ]

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.
