Our take on the Rockford Fosgate P3D4-10 by Crutchfield's Jo Greene
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.
Designed for deeper, louder bass
Rockford Fosgate designed the P3D4-10 10" subwoofer to stay strong even when the bass gets hot. This Punch P3 sub features a rigid anodized aluminum cone that holds its shape through heavy play, while staying light and responsive. 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.
The aluminum cone acts as a giant heat sink, directing heat away from the copper-clad aluminum voice coils. Special venting keeps the voice coils cool, so you get incredibly consistent bass performance over time. This P3 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."
The dual 4-ohm voice coils allow you to wire the sub for 2-ohm impedance to get maximum power output, or for 8-ohm impedance if you're using multiple subs. The P3D4-10 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 375 and 750 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.
Bought two of these.... best 10's I've ever owned!!!! Wasn't a Rockford fosgate fan but now I am. These things will shake your vehicle!

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch P3D4-10 is a 10-inch subwoofer with dual 4Ω voice coils. The sub features a hybrid StampCast basket, quick-release compression terminals, anodized aluminum cone, and Santoprene surround. An anodized aluminum voice coil former and spider venting help keep the subwoofer cool.
Dual 4Ω Voice Coils: The dual 4Ω voice coils offer wiring flexibility; when wired in parallel the woofer presents a 2Ω load, when wired in series the woofer presents an 8Ω load.
Compression Terminals: The P3D4-10 features spring post terminals which accommodate pin connectors, single banana plugs, or bare speaker wire up to 10 gauge.
CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the P3D4-10 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 just under an inch, with the trim ring it's approximately 1-1/16 inches. The diameter of the trim ring is approximately 11-1/4 inches.
Sealed Box: Rockford recommends a sealed enclosure with an optimum internal volume of 0.59 cubic feet (from 0.5 to 0.75 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 31 Hz).

Why did you buy this?
After extensive research of it's specs I determined it the best sub-woofer for my setup [ PHILLIP Jul 13, 2016 ]
Kicker speaker blew [ KELLEY Apr 19, 2016 ]
They beat ridiculously hard, but there is a break-in period...oh but if u wait for them to break in.....straight BLAM that an old school punch 800 cannot blow them!! [ Eric Dec 15, 2015 ]
reviews were great [ M Dec 03, 2015 ]
2 questions already asked
1 answer I bought myself a P3D4-10 subwoofer and have it in a 10" sealed box with more than enought cubic feet inside. Its paired with a R500x1D RF amplifier on OFC 4 AWG wires, and the sub is wired down to a 2 ohm load. The sub all in all hits very hard, but doesn't pick up high frequencies very well. Should I take out my subwoofer and insulate the box, or would it be better to reconstruct a new box? [ Brendan Jan 13, 2017 ]
Subwoofers in general are designed to produce low (bass) frequencies, and the 10" Rockford Fosgate P3D4 model is only capable of generating frequencies up to 250 Hz. If your system is lacking in mid-high frequency output, you may want to consider upgrading and/or adding an amplifier to your speakers. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. I hope that helps! [ Larry Jan 24, 2017 ] Staff
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 Jan 01, 2016 ] Staff
