Adding great bass to your truck’s audio system is easy with the Rockford Fosgate P300-10T powered subwoofer enclosure. This 10-inch bass upgrade system includes a Punch 10-inch subwoofer installed in an optimized enclosure and features a 300-watt power amplifier. Best of all, the system is ready to connect to a factory-installed audio system or an aftermarket source unit. If you’re looking for a way to add great bass to your truck, this is a fantastic option!
Punch Series Powered Truck Subwoofer System
Fitting in between the Power and Prime product echelons is the venerable Punch . Products in this range balance performance and value to deliver better-than-expected sound quality and reliability. The P300-10T is a perfect example of this philosophy as it combines a carefully thought-out enclosure with a high-quality subwoofer and a potent amplifier.
The enclosure features CNC-cut 5/8-inch MDF construction and has a durable vinyl-wrapped finish that resists damage from scuffs and scratches. The face, top and back of the enclosure have a carbon-fiber pattern in the vinyl, and the end panels are a classic leather-like grain. The enclosure is an acoustic-suspension (sealed) design that allows the overall size to remain compact. In terms of dimensions, the unit is 21.7 inches wide, 13.3 inches tall and measures a slim 7.9 inches deep at the base and only 4.8-inches deep at the top. Unlike enclosures designed for cars and SUVs, this truck enclosure has the driver mounted on the angled panel to fire into the seat. A durable mesh grille protects the subwoofer from damage. If you’re looking for a similar solution for a car or SUV, check out the P300-10 with the subwoofer mounted on the vertical panel.
The subwoofer included in the P300-10T is bespoke to this system but draws features and technologies from the Punch and Power series stand-alone woofers. As such, it features extensive voice coil cooling technologies like a large-diameter pole piece vent, vents under the voice coil in the bottom plate, venting under the spider mounting plateau and vents in the base of the cone. What makes the driver genuinely unique is its low-impedance design. Rather than the typical 4- or 2-ohm load we’re used to, it’s much lower so that the amplifier doesn’t need an expensive step-up power supply to produce impressive power levels. The result is a combination that offers good efficiency and excellent output.
Rockford Fosgate P300-10T Amplifier Features
The engineers at Rockford know what they’re doing when it comes to car audio component design. The amp in the P300-10T includes all the features your installer will need to integrate the system into your vehicle and make it sound amazing. First, with up to 300 watts of power on top, there’s no problem with the system playing loudly enough to keep up with the rest of the speakers in your truck while giving you a nice back massage.
The amp features a sensitivity control that allows the unit to make full power with signals between 150 mV and 6 volts. A switch adds an attenuator to the input so that the RCA pigtails can be cut off the provided harness to connect the amp to a factory-installed radio. In this mode, the maximum audio signal input voltage is 12 volts. A switch lets your installer can select from the remote turn-on input, DC offset sensing or audio signal sensing. The latter two options turn the subwoofer on automatically when a factory-installed radio turns on or starts playing music.
The adjustable electronic crossover is variable from 50 to 200 Hz, and the filter has a -12 dB/octave slope. A bass boost control is adjustable from 0 to +12 dB, and a polarity control switch that inverts the output from 0 to 180 degrees is included for quick system configuration. Last but certainly not least, the system includes a Punch Level Control that your installer can mount in the front of the vehicle. This control lets you fine-tune the system output to suit the music you listen to or your mood.
Electrical connections for eight-AWG power and ground wires, along with the remote lead, are made by a durable quick-release connector. Likewise, the audio input is on a Molex connector, and the Punch Level Control uses a 1/8-inch headphone jack. As such, the enclosure can be removed from the vehicle quickly and easily if you need extra cargo space.
