    What is the difference between Power and Punch?

    What is the difference between Rockford Fosgate Punch and Power amps? I know power amps are more expensive . Are they worth the difference in price?

    The Power series is more powerful (in general) and it is worth the extra money, if you have it.

    Rockford makes a power 800.2 and punch 800.2, so what your saying is that the power is more powerful?

    the color of the amp, an rca output on the power series, bigger gauge wire acceptance on the power series, and a 24db/octave vs a 12db/octave x/o.

    ding ding ding... he's a winner...

    there is NO difference in the output, or build quality of the amps... They use the same PC board.. same power supply, and same output stage... this is how RF saves money.. They add a better x-over, make the terminals bigger, and repaint it, and charge you more money...

    I disagree...I have seen birthsheets on power amps that were higher than the punch amps.
