Isn’t it amazing to have a powered subwoofer in your car that is compact and small ?!
Sure it is but most of the Active subs in the market right now are not worth it and don’t provide you with the bass you want to enjoy in your car.
We have less than 15 compact Subwoofer to choose from in 2017 and one of them is the Rockford Fosgate P300 Series.
RF is amazing. They make some of the most beautiful and powerful car audio gears in the market and they are not so pricey.
The P300 is a series of compact subwoofers that has two main sizes, 10 inches, and 12 inches.
So, if you are still reading you are interested in buying a compact Sub and want to know more about this series and we are going to make sure to give you everything you need to know before making your final decision.
Why you should be interested in the Rockford Fosgate P300 ?!
If you are looking to add some bass to your car with simple active woofer and don’t want to spend more than $200 and get the value you pay for with your bucks so you can enjoy high-quality Sub without breaking your bank account this review is for you.
Is the Rockford Fosgate P300 any good ?!
Short Answer: Yes It IS.
While taking you through this review you will find what RF made with this from the design and the size to the technologies and the sound to see that it is actually one of the best Small subwoofers in the market.
So, let’s start:
What are the main features of the P300 from Rockford ?!
When it comes to how they structured the sub the closed-loop design ensures you get the best out of the components working together (woofer + Amplifier + enclosure) in closed-loop design = the best performance you will get.
The Class-D amplifier built in this Sub with 300 Watts RMS and 600 Watts peak power perform seamlessly with the rest of the components to give you magnificent performance.
you will have the option to match the output power from your head unit with the amplifier
Punch level control:
To make it easier for you to control the output Rockford added a wired Punch Level Control that you can install and use the driver’s seat.
Safety is something we always care about especially when you buy a compact Sub because if it is unsafe, it could ruin everything in the unit.
The P300 has thermal overload, overvoltage, and short circuit protection so the amplifier will stop working if any of these conditions occurred.
Here where the P300 shines, the low notes with this baby are awesome. It is not to quickly add bass to your system but it adds really strong bass that you are going to enjoy. Overall we didn’t find anybody complaining about the sound quality because it is impressive.
This point is quite controversial. We found people saying that the unit lasted like 4 years with them and then they sold it. And on the other hand, we found others saying that it didn’t last for 4 months or so and then broke down.
On Amazon this baby has more than 88 customers reviewed it and 80% of them gave it 5 stars and on Crutchfield 113 customers reviewed it and 105 customers gave it 5 stars.
Sure the complaints are true but it is not the default case with the P300. their default is to be an awesome unit.
