Our take on the Rockford Fosgate PPS4-8 by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Loud and clear
Rockford Fosgate built the PPS4-8 Punch Pro 8" midrange speaker for people who like their music loud and clear. This highly efficient speaker uses technology developed for arena and stadium systems, so it's able to fill your vehicle with warm midrange detail, regardless of volume. If your system's already strong in the highs and lows, just install a pair of these speakers in your ride and they'll really fill out the sound.
Each PPS4-8 speaker handles up to 125 watts RMS, while its 4-ohm voice coil shrugs off the high temperatures created by heavy use. A fiber-reinforced paper cone and W-style treated cloth surround keeps the speaker sounding and working great for a long time to come.
Note: This package contains one speaker and one grille. You'll need an external amplifier to drive this speaker properly an in-dash stereo won't have enough power.
I was so glad to find this website and to order the best speaker I've ever gotten so far. It sounds greats and love it. Will most likely be ordering from here again most definitely.

Rockford Fosgate PPS4-8 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Cone: The PPS4-8's fiber reinforced paper cone is specifically engineered for high SPL (Sound Pressure Level). The W-style surround is treated cloth.
VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.
FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.
IDHS T3 (Inductive Damping Heat Sink): The heat sink secures directly to the top of the magnet structure to improve system efficiency by reducing both distortion and back EMF (Electo-magnetic force).
Terminals: The PPS4-8 features spring post terminals that accommodate speaker wire up to 16 gauge.

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your speakers 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. [ Kenny Mar 12, 2016 ] Staff
Yes, it make great bass. I use this sub in a ported box with a 400 amp and it sounds great. [ jimmy Sep 21, 2015 ]
It worked for me in my Ford Expedition and i am using the amp that came O E M with the vehicle. Now some factors you might consider is the price. There are certainly different options and applications. I would certainly check a few others before making a decision. [ BRANDY Sep 21, 2015 ]
1 answer What's the difference between the 8ohm speaker and the 4 ohm? I want to swap out my Polk Audio speakers for the Rockford Fosgate PPS8-8 or PPS4-8 I have the alpine MRV-F300 powering Polk audio db6501 in the front with dxi6501 in the back . JL audio HO110RG-w3v3 with alpine MRX-M55 amp . Can the Alpine MRV-F300 power the Rockford Fosgate's [ Ray T Aug 05, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The difference is resistance to power; the 4 ohm speaker has half the resistance to power than the 8 ohm speaker. This means that since the customer has the Alpine MRV-F300 which is rated out 50 watts RMS at 4 ohms, at 8 ohms the speaker would have more resistance and only be able to use 25 watts RMS from the amp. So more power is better is always better but especially in this scenario. The customer would be better suited to go with the 4 ohm version of the speaker. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Aug 10, 2014 ] Staff
I have both of mine hooked up to a single Kenwood 350W amp. These are the heart and soul of my sound system, they fill in where I never thought imaginable. I did make my own box to house them in because I put them directly in the middle of my van between the rear seats so the box is only 22Lx9Hx9W and make sure to use some good MDF board or you'll blow it apart. These are basically mid-range and great at that, if your looking for deep bass, go subwoofer. If you want the highs go with a set of component speakers(6x8 or6x9 plus tweeter) a good value for overall sound. [ Bob Aug 04, 2014 ]
