Our take on the Rockford Fosgate Punch P16

Rockford Fosgate designed the Punch P16 6-1/2" speakers as a high-grade replacement for your factory speakers. Each speaker features a responsive polypropylene cone and butyl rubber surround that'll stand up to hours of high-volume jams. The dome tweeter provides clear, extended highs that can hold their own when the bass gets heavy.

Rockford Fosgate innovations

Take a closer look and you'll notice a couple of cool innovations. Rockford Fosgate uses a new technique to attach the surround to the cone that yields up to 25% more cone area, for fuller sound and stronger performance. The slots around the frame eliminate the need to redrill screw holes when the factory holes are just a little bit off. And these speakers come with adapter plates that you can modify to install these speakers into 5"x7", 6"x8", or 6"x9" openings. Grilles are included.

Note: The oversized terminals on these speakers won't connect to a Crutchfield wiring harness. A free 10-pack of female quick slides that you can splice onto our harness will be included with your speaker purchase.

Easy to install. Good clear sound. But no bass. Have to install subwoofer if you want any bass.

Pros: Good clear sound.

Cons: No bass. Have to install sub to get bass with these ones

Great sound, a pain to mount.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sound is great! No more breaking down at volume level 30. Should have put them in the front doors also and not spent the time with separate tweezers. Gave them a 3 star because it took so long to get the speakers and adapter plates they came with lined up in a way I could use them. Next time I'll get some plastic sheeting they sell here and make my own. Other than that everything was great. Very well made as always!

Pros: Well made, very clear

Cons: Hard to sort all the hole combos out, not as much bass as stock but I can work on that.

Perfect upgrade speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got these along with new tweeters, rear door speakers and pioneer deck. The sound is great with crisp clear highs and hard hitting mid range. I just need a sub for some deep base and the system will be complete

Pros: Crystal clear sound, nice midrange no distortion


Great overall speaker

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in the front door of my 08' Tundra. Sounds immediately better than stock. With the brackets and the wire harness that comes free, install was a snap. Love the install instructions they give as well. Adding a new head unit only gave it more power and sound. It does lack bass, but with 2 10" subwoofers under my back seat, i didnt need it. Sounds great with out my front doors rattling. Im sure an amp hooked up to them would add that bass. Installed the matching tweeters in the dash for even greater sound.

Pros: Sound quality, product quality , great price, easy install, great mids and hi

Cons: Lacks bass

Great sound and value

Installed these to the Rockford Fosgate R250X4 Prime 4-Channel Amplifier along with 2) RF 6x9 and they sound great. I already had a 12" Sub in the vehicle so I was not looking for a ton of bass just some good mids and they delivered.

Pros: Great sound

New Camper Speakers

Mike H from Tolland, CT on 6/29/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used these to replace the cheap generic speakers that my fifth wheel camper was made with and the difference in sound quality is profound. The access to the owners manual was indispensable, as it allowed me to know before ordering that they would just drop in the existing holes without any additional cutting. Very much looking forward to enjoying the music during our next trip.

Pros: Tight, rich stereo sound.

Cons: They weren't free, dang it!!!

Easy install good sound

Cons: Could not use the provided grills

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these speakers to upgrade the system on my Silverado since 3 of the 4 stock door speakers were blown. They seem to be really nice but I've only had them installed for a few days so I'm not sure about their durability and quality but so far they've been great! Crutchfield provided quick shipping and mounting adapters as well as wiring harnesses that worked perfectly! Great buy if your looking to upgrade your speakers

Pros: Sound good Adapters and wiring harnesses included for free Good price


They do what I want

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Factory speakers in my car were just bad enough to matter, so I sought a replacement. By no means an audiophile, these are a cost effective solution. They do the dang job. Using in tandem with a Clarion XC 1410 amp.

Pros: Much clearer sound, significantly more power than factory speakers.

Cons: Most likely need an amp to perform at full potential.

Pump It Up

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a difference. Even though I had the upgraded system in my Jeep the sound got lost with the top off. My new system powers out the sound very clean and sounds great.

Pros: Clear and loud sound

Cons: Not supposed to fit the headbar of my Jeep but with a little effort is works well. Baffle helps the sound

Awesome speakers!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not impressed. Replaced 4 factory speakers a week ago with the Punch 16s and 2 of them rattle/buzz. Spend a little more and get a better speaker. On the up side Crutchfield is sending me replacement speakers.

Pros: Easy to install, and Crutchfield sent factory plug adapters, and replacement bezels for easy install.

Cons: Everything else, including having to take the doors apart 2 times.

Product Research


Injection-Molded Polypropylene Woofers: The woofer cones are mineral filled, injection-molded polypropylene. This molding process assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.

Butyl Rubber Surrounds: The butyl rubber surrounds dampen unwanted harmonic distortion while maintaining linear geometry under extreme weather conditions. This leads to less distortion, superior frequency response, and superior durability.

VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.

Tweeters: Each speaker features a 3/4" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) dome tweeter; PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.

StampCast Basket: The P16 features StampCast steel baskets for added rigidity.

Mounting: While Rockford Fosgate calls the P16 a 6" speaker, they are sized to mount in standard three-hole and four-hole 6-1/2 applications. They can also be easily mounted in 6-3/4 applications, but because the extra screw holes create an air leak in the larger opening, speaker baffles must be used.

Adapter Bracket: For mounting flexibility, the included brackets can be modified to fit 5x7, 6x8, or 6x9 applications.

Note: The bracket is generic (cutout sized for a 5-1/4) and requires modification before the P16 will fit into it.

Speaker Terminals: These speakers have 0.25" wide positive (+) terminals and 0.187" wide negative (-) terminals, which are too large for the vehicle-specific speaker harnesses supplied by Crutchfield for many vehicle applications. It is recommended that a pack of assorted female quick slides (item number 120FQS10PK, sold separately) be purchased and spliced to the harnesses to adapt them to the speaker terminals.
