I just got a P3 Dual 2 ohm 12" from a friend. Built a 1.25cuft sealed box for it. Powering it with a Old School PPI 300 watt Power Class amp. NOT VERY IMPRESSIVE AT ALL.

Maybe i should have went ported? Maybe i should have more power? Maybe the acoustics in my truck just ****. IDK. all i know is if i would have paid 250 dollars for this sub i would be very pissed.

I'm giving up on bass in my truck until i can afford a PC2350 amp to match my otherss and 4 SSA DCON's.

Focusing on my highs from here on out till i can afford a respectable sub section.

well. it's going to the pawn shop tomorrow. i would rather be seen rocking out to my factory door speakers then rocking out to weak **** that required effort to hook up. just gonna wait till i have money and get either multiple dcon's or a single xcon. havent decided yet.

I've never been a fan of RF subs. I've heard a few and they aren't loud at all, and they really don't sound great.

I love fosgate but the p3's aint s*** compared to subs like the hx2's. they cant hit lows and sound bad. i've always wanted one but i think ill pass although i had a 15" t2 and it pounded. dont get punch get power. u went wrong going sealed and 300w aint gonna cut it for a p3

I ran a pair of Punch HX2 12's on a RF 850.2 years ago and they were great subs. The newer RF subs just don't have the build quality anymore. I believe its more of a name being sold now than build quality IMO. I'd say their amps are decent, but for the price there are better deals.

That right there.

My dad's got a RF P3 in his ext. cab in his truck on a bd1000 and it isn't as impressive as the Xplod 10" he had.... waste of a Birch box...

I installed a pair of RF punch subs some guy bought from some stereo warehouse a couple of days ago, they couldn't hit any lows, sounded like ***. biggest pieces of shits ive heard in a long time.

I guess if, all your use to is, loud loose and overly exaggerated bass and know nothing about sound quality or accurate detailed low frequency reproduction, then you probably wouldn't like the RF 3 subs?

Is this review going to be the same for the P3 shallow mount subs? I've recently bought 1 of these and am waiting for it to be delivered. Thought they would have had better reviews than the comments made in this thread! :/

Before the 2010 P3's, yes they ******. Plastic cones always crack, foam surrounds always rip, and over rated power handling.

The new P3's are a completely different story. Metal cone that is a heat sink as well, rubber surround finally, and a very CONSERVATIVE 600wrms power handling.

Would you please stop digging up old threads about sh*tty subs!
