Rockford Fosgate Unveils New Punch Subwoofer Family At Palms Casino Resort In Las Vegas
Rockford Fosgate, the industry leader in high-performance car audio systems, will unveil its new series of PUNCH subwoofers, which includes 11 models ranging from 8” to 15” at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas from Jan. 6-8, 2011, in the 13,000-square-foot Palms Ballroom. The new P1, P2 and P3 series subwoofers have been engineered to produce more watts than the current generation P1, P2 and P3 PUNCH subwoofers that were launched in early 2007.
“When it comes to subwoofers, the Rockford Fosgate Punch family is a definite market leader,” noted Bill Jackson, president of Rockford Corporation. “And the new series that we’re introducing to the public in January will only fuel this brand’s popularity. Our engineering team has done a remarkable job at packing more watts into each subwoofer, giving them a dynamic range that is rare in the industry.”
In order to increase the watts for each new subwoofer, the Rockford Fosgate engineering team developed a new correlation between the speaker and spider. The P1 models have significantly improved voice coils allowing for a greater dynamic range. The radiating cone area of each P2 subwoofer has been increased by 25 percent, while the P3 models feature a larger magnet, vented motor poles to keep the subwoofers cooler and new anodized aluminum cones for spectacular sound quality in a lightweight, yet robust package. Both the P2 and P3 series use a new die cast aluminum decorate trim ring to give the subwoofer a more polished look.
The new series of Punch subwoofers include:

“The new family of Punch subwoofers is not just a re-packaging of the product,” said Drew Kallen, director of loudspeaker engineering for Rockford Fosgate. “We’ve taken the last three years to discover how to make definitive performance gains in reliability and power handling. From using new materials like anodized aluminum for the cones to engineering new terminal designs, this next generation of Punch subwoofers is much more stable and reliable, giving the best output for a dynamic range of music.”
