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 P2D2-12 12" 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 P2D2-12 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 300 and 600 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Great bang for the buck !
Love it sounds really good buy
Ok so I previously had 3 JL w1's. These Rockfords hit so much harder it's crazy. I've always been a fan of rockford and took advantage of the sale that Crutchfield.com had on these subs. So glad I did. I definitely recommend these to anyone who loves had hitting bass. Great product
Pros: Very nice looking sub, super loud and made by rockford fosgate. Can't go wrong with that
Cons: Non, zip, nada, zero
So far so good these subs hit much harder then the jl w0's that I had before
Pros: Really deep base
Great quality sound! No complains at all. The lows are good and it is very cool looking
Pros: Great sound Looks cool Solid metal outer ring Easy install
I installed four of these in a sealed box powered by two 500 watt RMS Kenwood amps, with 40sq ft of sound deadening. All I can say is that I seriously overdid it! Too much bass - even sealed and powered by underwhelming amps. Subs play the low notes with authority, but the higher (bass) notes aren't as crisp and the "kick" bass isn't as impressive.
Pros: Ridiculous lows, not much power needed, tight bass.
Cons: A bit pricey for what they are, low Xmax (8.5mm), high bass notes (65+) aren't very crisp of clean.
Creating a system that will harness sound quality without sacrificing space in a Jeep Wrangler is a very daunting task! After weeks of research and some assistance from Chip (Crutchfield advisor), we found what would work with my current set-up. This RF P2D2 compliments the rest of my system very well! The bass isn't lost even with the top down and that was very important to me. Using this sub actually rounded out my system and balanced everything out! I have received many compliments about how this sub sounds in such a small space. My sealed box has enough space to accommodate the required specs of the sub and it responds very well without falling flat on it's face! I am extremely happy with the results coming out of the sub and couldn't be happier with the assistance that Chip provided. The product was shipped fast and communication is top notch! I wouldn't recommend going anywhere else because you simply cannot get this kind of assistance any where else and they do it for FREE! I would strongly recommend using this sub to anyone that doesn't want to take up a huge amount of space and still retain a killer amount of bass without being a "Pro"! Thanks to Crutchfield for guiding me in the right direction and for supplying me with a great choice! I'm a very happy Customer! ~Dan
Pros: Doesn't take up a ton of space to sound good Easy wiring diagrams and recommended settings
Cons: No-Full face grill to cover the sub. Being in a Jeep exposes the sub to anything tossed in any given space available when the top is down!
These speakers are amazing, they hit so hard, make sure to get a ported box so you don't run the risk of damaging the speakers because they kick a lot of air, I'm very satisfied with the way these speakers perform, very powerful and can handle constant power,
Pros: Great made speakers
Cons: Recommend a ported box for best performance
I wasn't a fan on rockfosgate before I bought these. I previously owned a pair of diamond audio D3 12's, so I figured there wasn't any better than the diamond. Then I was told about the P2 12's and read the reviews and I was like maybe I will give it a shot. So I ordered me a pair, soon as I installed them I was like wow, oh my goodness these are a good quality sounding speakers. On top of that I couldn't beat the price with a broom stick lol.
sounds great, good quality
Pros: great price, quality build
Sounds great! Make sure the box specs are right and you will have no worries.
This sub is simply amazing!! Goes great with my new system and hits extremely hard for just a single subwoofer. I would advise anyone who is just looking for some better sound quality in their vehicle to highly consider this line of sub.
Pros: Sounds amazing Hits extremely hard Amazing design and quality
I am very pleased with these subs. They have plenty of potential as I upgrade my system. So far they are performing great and I have no complaint.
Pros: Well made, great looking, sound great
Nice subwoofers with lots a power!!!
Pros: Price, bump
Bought this sub couple days ago. Glad i went. Rockford route because these subs hit really low and deep. Using it with a 500.1 rf amp and it sounds perfect. 1 year warranty also :)
One of the best subs out there! I had MTX dual subs before and just one P2 sounds a lot better!! The bass hits real hard!! I have this in a 2013 f150XLT
Pros: Hits hard and deep
I got 2 12s dvc. P2s. In my acura legend...oh my....these subs really come to life...i only have. My kenwood deck on 20 vol...and i have to turn it down....these punch p2s...rock...so i know. What the p3s sound like
Pros: Excellent. Sub that demands more power..
Cons: No cons...just add more power
Great sub make sure to give this enough power and no distortion.
Pros: Plenty of power handling, great sound quality.
Cons: Doesn't handle distortion well and easily overheats in a sealed enclosure.
I just bought these subs today and they sound amazing, they hit low and deep, i have two running in a ported box with a alpine mrp500 and they hit very very hard you wont be disappointed with these subs, i returned my 12 jl w3 for this and these blow it out of the water could not ask for more very pleased wont regret it
I have a 1000 watt BA GT2300 on this 400 watt sub... and it takes everybit of it. Now the amp is all the way down but the extension keeps begging for more. I've blown alot of woofers but this speaker takes the abuse without sacrificing sound qaulity...their very underated. I'm a JL fan also, but you would have to buy a 500 dollar W6 to get to this level seriuosly. I'm buying 2 p3 10's in the near future and turn that gain up...Rockford for subs-JL for amps!!!

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch P2D2-12 is a 12-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 mono load.
Steel Basket: The P2D2-12 subwoofer features a StampCast steel basket for added rigidity.
Compression Terminals: The P2D2-12 features spring post terminals which accommodate speaker wire up to 10 gauge.
CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the P2D2-12 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.
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 just over 7/8 of an inch, with the trim ring it's approximately 1-1/16 inches. The diameter of the trim ring is 13-5/16 inches.
Sealed Box: Rockford recommends a sealed enclosure with an optimum internal volume of 1.02 cubic feet (from 0.7 to 1.8 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 10" 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 34 Hz).

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Rockford Fosgate P2D2-12 can be wired to 1 ohm since it's a 2-ohm dual voice coils. You'll need to wire the subwoofer in parallel in order to achieve a 1 ohm impedance meaning you'll take the negatives and wire those together and the same with the positive. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy May 29, 2014 ] Staff
