Home » Reviews » Subwoofers » Rockford Fosgate P300-12 Punch Review – Easy Bass Without the Headaches

Verdict

Wearing the famous Punch moniker like a badge of honor, Rockford Fosgate’s P300-12 powered car sub with included 300-watt amp injects your ride with wallops of famous Rockford slam without all the headaches associated with matching up a sub with a compatible amp. You’ll love the powerful impact this enclosure adds to your favorite tracks, and you’ll rest easy knowing that tried-and-true Rockford performance was within your budget.

Pros

  • Serious thump from a relatively compact enclosure
  • Boasts good structure and gets extremely loud
  • Gain knob good for adjusting and tuning bass precisely the way you want it

Cons

  • Some users describe enclosure as a bit too large for their purposes
  • Reports of the main port for the wires of the amp vibrating to the point they begin getting loose, resulting in the posts hitting themselves until they burn

Review

If you need to add bass to a system quickly or want to alleviate the hassle of matching up separate amplifiers and subwoofers, the P300-12 from Rockford Fosgate is right up your alley. The durable exterior resists scratches and dents while in your vehicle’s trunk/cargo area, while a “closed-loop” design ensures optimum performance between the woofer, amp, and enclosure.

What’s more, the system boasts a built-in zero (0)/180-degree phase switch for managing resonance areas, separate low-level and speaker-level inputs, a built-in adjustable bass boost EQ, adjustable 12dB/octave low-pass crossover, detachable power/ground connectors, intelligent auto turn-on/off function and a host of additional useful features that take the guesswork out of adding serious slam to a car audio system.

The Rockford Fosgate name is coveted in serious mobile audio circles and for good reason: The company’s rugged, take-no-prisoners approach to both casual and competition gear extends to its entire lineup of amplifiers, subwoofers, and accessories, and these products have gained a reputation for being able to take the most extreme of abuse.

Into this foray has come Rockford’s legendary Punch line, running the gamut from amps to subs and bridging the gap between affordability and performance like almost nowhere else in the mobile audio world.

In the box, you will find a remote bass level control and documents regarding Rockford’s one-year warranty on the product.
