Rockford Fosgate PPS8-8
Punch Pro 8" midrange speaker with 8-ohm voice coil
Our take on the Rockford Fosgate PPS8-8 by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Loud and clear
Rockford Fosgate built the PPS8-8 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 PPS8-8 speaker handles up to 125 watts RMS, while its 8-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. This speaker's 8-ohm impedance makes it a great candidate for systems with multiple midrange drivers.
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.
Great replacement unit for the stock sub with tons of low end punch

Rockford Fosgate PPS8-8 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Cone: The PPS8-8'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 PPS8-8 features spring post terminals that accommodate speaker wire up to 16 gauge.

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: You can use the 8 ohm speakers with the 2 ohm speakers, you just have to be careful what amp you use because the power that will go to the 8 ohm speakers will be much less that what the amp puts out. This is because the amps will be at 2 or 4 ohm and the speakers are 8 ohm so that will half the power that the amp is putting out. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Feb 22, 2015 ] Staff
