Rockford Fosgate showcases their fanatical commitment to sonic excellence in the Punch Series of speakers, amps, and subs. If you like to listen to potent, powerful music — and feel it too — Punch components will give you impressive sound that'll stand out in a crowd.
Engineers at Rockford Fosgate designed the P2D2-10 10" subwoofer to dish out the kind of powerful low end you crave in your ride. Its responsive paper cone is reinforced with the same Kevlar® fibers used in bulletproof vests so you get the best of both worlds — warm bass that's exceptionally hard-hitting. Rockford Fosgate uses a new technique to attach the oversized rubber surround to the cone that increases available cone area up to 25%, so this sub can push more air for even bigger bass.
This P2 sub features an extended pole piece and bumped backplate that leaves more room for heavy excursion, so it'll hit deeper lows without "bottoming out." Special venting keeps the copper-clad aluminum voice coils cool through heavy use for consistent bass performance over time.
The dual 2-ohm voice coils allow you to wire the sub for 1-ohm impedance to get maximum power output, or for 4-ohm impedance if you're using multiple subs. The P2D2-10 sub works equally well in a sealed or ported enclosure, so you can choose the kind of bass you want for your system.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 225 and 450 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

I used these to replace my well used high quality BSW 10. These sound even better. crisp clear bass. Way more then needed in my M3. I like that I have them running about 1/2 power and still get the sound im looking for.
Awesome sound fosgate knows how to punch hard I have a single 10" sub in my Torrent and its being pushed hard with a p400-1 nothing beats fosgate in my opinion
Pros: Quality bass from the best in the business
Cons: None to speak of
I love this sub. I am driving it with a 400W RMS Kenwood amp. Right now it is in a "sealed" box. (It isn't 100% sealed, my order from a separate website of a panel mount connector was delayed, and I couldn't wait for it to start enjoying the bass, so the wires to the sub run through holes I drilled in the box I made, so not totally sealed) The sub still hits so hard, it actually shakes the microphone I have in my car to make phone calls with. The sub plays louder than I am comfortable without clipping of any kind. The bass is strong and low and really adds punch to the music. My only complaint is that the bass isn't quite at tight as I was hoping for, though I assume this has to do with the fact that my box isn't sealed yet, so I'll update the review when my connector finally arrives.
Pros: Very strong powerful bass.
Cons: A little pricey. Bass not as tight as I want.
they are the best hiting subs. there hard hitting and they hit harder than subs that I had before. for the price they are worth it. so if you want hard hitting subs than buy these
Pros: Hits hard

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch P2D2-10 is a 10-inch subwoofer with dual 2Ω voice coils. The sub features a StampCast steel frame, quick-release compression terminals, a Kevlar fiber reinforced paper cone, and Santoprene surround. An anodized aluminum voice coil former and spider venting help keep the subwoofer cool.
Dual 2Ω Voice Coils: The dual 2Ω voice coils offer wiring flexibility; when wired in parallel the woofer presents a 1Ω load, when wired in series the woofer presents a 4Ω load.
Steel Basket: The P2D2-10 subwoofer features a StampCast steel basket for added rigidity.
Compression Terminals: The P2D2-10 features spring post terminals which accommodate speaker wire up to 10 gauge.
CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the P2D2-10 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.
FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.
Trim Ring: To improve the cosmetic look, a decorative trim ring is included that mounts over the flange of the woofer. When using the cast aluminum trim ring the woofer is first mounted with four screws, then the ring is placed on top of the woofer, aligning the final four holes of the woofer with ring. The other four screws are used for these holes to mount the ring and woofer to the enclosure. Without the trim ring the mounting height of the woofer is 7/8 of an inch.
Sealed Box: Rockford recommends a sealed enclosure with an optimum internal volume of 0.59 cubic feet (from 0.5 to 0.85 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 1.4 cubic feet using one 4" diameter x 14" long port; this yields a tuning frequency of 40 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 32 Hz).
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team. They verify what’s in the box, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
A few weeks ago, we installed new speakers and an amp in Mathilda's car. Once she got used to how great the upgrade sounded, we came back to add an amp and subwoofer.
i needed a sub to fill in the mid-bass in my system, good freq. response and not too power hungry [ Ben Mar 12, 2016 ]
to have enough bass to my system [ Jeremy Mar 08, 2016 ]
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 Feb 15, 2016 ] Staff
