What customers say about "Audio"
Rockford Fosgate P3D2-12 Punch P3 DVC 2 Ohm 12-Inch 600 Watts RMS 1200 Watts Peak Subwoofer
  • This sub handles any type of music with ease. Produces great sounding bass at any volume and every frequency.
  • I have it installed in the Q-power HD112VL ported box, it's a good combo, really good bass response, and very loud.
  • This subwoofer has great crisp response (in a sealed box at least) and good deep range.
  • I started noticing heavy distortion. This is THE worst Rockford product I have ever purchased.
  • The frequency range isn't quite as good as some others are, the bass is considerably clearer and crispier than others, ESPECIALLY at high frequencies.
Kicker CompR Series (40CWR124) 12 inch Subwoofer 4 Ohm
  • This 500W rms. This will not disappoint. This rolls out more bass than I really know what to do with it.
  • It is a pretty good sub! They handle lots of power well.
  • Awesome, powerful sub! Be careful of the switch to go from series to parallel though. Not a typical way of wiring a sub.
  • Haven't even had them 3 days and now there making this cracking sound.
  • Sub are knocking way harder still breaking them in, and now there's a cracking sound coming out from them out of no where.

What customers say about "Features"
Rockford Fosgate P3D2-12 Punch P3 DVC 2 Ohm 12-Inch 600 Watts RMS 1200 Watts Peak Subwoofer
  • Proper subwoofer. Super heavy duty. I've always used the less expensive Kickers and they pound nicely, but this P3 is a huge step up.
  • This subwoofer has great clarity, control and power. I have been impressed with its performance, there is a reason this has such high reviews, people are amazed at the quality and power.
  • These hit HARD and my bass knob controller is only up halfway. Pulled into a parking lot and a guy asked me what was in my trunk.
  • Overall quality of the subwoofer is good, it's definitely made of good materials and holds up extremely well over time.
  • I have recently used this subwoofer with my home theater system, powered by only 300 watts and it coped with it poorly!
Kicker CompR Series (40CWR124) 12 inch Subwoofer 4 Ohm
  • I do like the sub, it was clean, still hits hella hard.
  • It exceeded my expectations. I was gonna start off with one and then get another but I think I might stick to just one. It hits really good.
  • Good quality speaker and sounds great for the price.
  • 6 months into ownership this subwoofer has faulted. The glue inside broke and makes a odd popping crackle sound that comes and goes.
  • Subs are horrible. Old cvrs much better blew these in less than 39 min of play on 1000 watt up turned halfway up not rated for power they say.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Rockford Fosgate P3D2-12 Punch P3 DVC 2 Ohm 12-Inch 600 Watts RMS 1200 Watts Peak Subwoofer
  • I have two of these in a dual-sealed box. Each sub is wired for 2ohms and connected to Kenwood KAC-8105D amplifiers. They sound incredible!
  • Connected to a 500 watt RMS alpine mono block D amp amp. This subwoofer was great.
  • Easy to very plug in the car. It took 15 minutes.
  • The sub stopped working after two days, something happened to the connector.
  • A month later, the connector stopped holding the wires so the connection constantly disappeared.
Kicker CompR Series (40CWR124) 12 inch Subwoofer 4 Ohm
  • Very nice, sound great, excellent service. Bought for truck and connected with an amp. Gave out perfect sound. Highly I recommend this item.
  • This subwoofer are awesome! The selectable switch makes wiring hassle free. These hit hard! Try these speakers I promise you won't be disappointed.
  • Push-button wire terminals featuring impedance-selector provide installation flexibility. So you can quickly start enjoying them.
  • The terminals are so well made that I think for years I will get a stable connection.
  • The push-button terminals ceased to hold the wires because of this, the connection constantly disappears.
