Integrated Spider Venting

Rockford Fosgate P3 Punch Shallow Mount is perfect for you if you want a compact subwoofer that produces clear sounds. The problem with mounted subwoofer is it can get heated quickly, especially if you put it in a very closed space. But you won’t experience that problem with this sub. This product is equipped with integrated spider venting. This feature will ensure the sub will keep cooling so your sub will keep working properly even if you play it continuously.

This incredible subwoofer also has anodized aluminum cone. Aluminum is a very durable material that will prevent damages to the subwoofer when you play strong bass notes. This aluminum cone also will control the temperature during SPL (Sound Pressure Level) and ensure that you will get clear sounds without any annoying ringing.

What Others Are Saying ?

Based on our research of many reviews around the web, we found that the lowest average rating for this shallow mount subwoofer has received excellent 4 out of 5 stars. Most of them shows favorable reviews that reflects their satisfaction of this product.

Many customers said that you can use this shallow mount subwoofer without needing custom work and lifting the rear seat or something similar to that. I have to agree with them since this sub doesn’t need complicated installation and the wiring is very simple.

However, one customer said that his sub gave up in just ten days with very minimum usage. But no one seems to complain the same difficulties so I guess it’s not a common problem.



Rockford Fosgate is one of the best subwoofer brands out there and Rockford Fosgate P3SD2 and P3SD4 -12 P3 Punch Shallow Mount definitely lives up to that expectation. With clear sound and high end feature, I recommend this product to those who want a mount subwoofer with excellent sound production.
