Rockford Fosgate P3 Series Subwoofers provide a good amount of bass and when powered properly sound amazing. This week in our series of What Amplifier Do I Need? we will take a look at some of the amplifiers offered here at Sonic Electronix that are perfectly suited for the Punch Stage 3 subwoofers. P3 subwoofers are great woofers that offer amazingly clear, crisp, and precise sound reproduction and use some of the most recent technologies to really set themselves apart from the car audio pack.
Rockford Fosgate PRIME R1000-1D
It is all about efficiency with the Rockford Fosgate PRIME R100-1D monoblock amplifier. This amplifier is able to output 500W RMS @ 4 ohms and 1000W RMS @ 2 ohms. With this much power you could easily run a single P3D2-10, P3D2-12 or even a P3D2-15 to a final impedance of 4 ohm. Or if you want more power you can easily power up a pair of any of those subwoofers to a final impedance of 2 ohms. The amplifier features an included wired bass level remote as well as a heavy-duty aluminum alloy heat sink for heat dissipation.
RE Audio DTS-1000.1
RE Audio’s slogan is “Release the Beast” and with this DTS-1000.1 monoblock amplifier you will be able to do just that. This amp is perfect when looking to power up a single P3D2-10, P3D2-12 or P3D2-15 to a final impedance of 1 ohm. If you want to run the amplifier a little less hot you can also use this amp to power up a single P3D4-10, P3D4-12 or P3D4-15 to a final impedance of 2 ohms. This amplifier really does open up so many wiring options and features a 0 to +12dB variable bass boost as well as low-pass and subsonic filters for specific sound reproduction. A classy looking subwoofer deserves a sleek amplifier like the RE Audio DTS-1000.1.
Another good amplifier to power up a single Rockford Fosgate P3 Dual 4 ohm subwoofer would be the MTX Audio RT500D Road Thunder series monoblock amplifier. Any P3 Dual 4 ohm subwoofer will wire down to 2 ohms final impedance and this amplifier will provide 500W RMS @ 2 ohms which will be enough to properly power out a P3 subwoofer. The amplifier features an Adaptive Class D topology that will create a cleaner, crisper sound while eliminating interference generally found in Class D amplifiers. The amplifier also features a Smart Engage circuitry that will make installation easy and simple into any car audio system.
