About the Rockford Fosgate R2D2-12

Rockford Fosgate's Prime R2 subs deliver strong bass in your car, and they are definitely built to last. The R2D2-12 sub features a 12" mica-injected polypropylene cone that works with a high-density poly-foam surround to punch out fat, deep notes. Rockford Fosgate stitches the tinsel leads that carry the signal to the voice coils directly into the cone — they'll hang tough through heavy use so you get consistent, reliable performance. The stamped solid-steel frame offers venting usually found in high-end subs that keeps this sub running cool.

The stamped solid-steel frame offers venting usually found in high-end subs that keeps this sub running cool.

Dual 2-ohm voice coils allow you to wire this sub for 1- or 4-ohm impedance, giving you more flexibility in setting up your system. Rockford Fosgate optimizes this Prime sub for both sealed and ported enclosures so you can choose the type of bass you want in your ride.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 200 and 375 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Great Bang For The Buck!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

First off, these are great for tight spaces where depth is a issue. I bought two of these to fit under my back seat and are downfiring in a sealed box. I must say they sound great, hit low notes and really rattle things up around my truck. If quality is on your mind with a budget, these subs are the way to go.

Pros: Catch all the low end notes and sound quality is amazing in a tight space.

Cons: Had to modify speaker box and cut the holes just a bit bigger since the mounting diameter is a few MM's bigger than a traditional subwoofer.

Just Enough

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This 12 went into my wife's SUV "budget build". She gave me just enough room to upgrade some much needed features in her audio quality. This RF R2D2 was the right sub for the job. It requires very little power to get great bass and the Freq, ranges work well with all types of music that is played.

Pros: deep bass, build quality, terminals.

Cons:

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These are awesome. I've never gotten rocksford fosgate before( mostly cause there too expensive)but these are amazing. I've known about the company and how well there subs are made. I've really wanted some and now I have them, and there awesome. Even for 250 watts. They still thump good. And the sound quality ias amazing.

Pros: Very easy too install. Good sound quality and loundness factor.

Cons: So far nothing, And I've had them for almost 3 months. Still work like new. I really doubt there will be any problems for a long while.

Product Research

Features
Enclosure Compatibility

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Prime R2D2-12 is a 12-inch subwoofer with dual 2Ω voice coils. The sub features a StampCast steel frame, quick-release compression terminals, and a mica injected polypropylene cone. An anodized aluminum voice coil former and spider venting help keep the subwoofer cool.

Steel Basket: The R2D2-12 subwoofer features a StampCast steel basket for added rigidity.

Compression Terminals: The Prime R2D2-12 features spring post terminals which accommodate speaker wire up to 12 gauge.

CEA-2031 Compliant: Power handling on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R2D2-12 subwoofer conforms to CEA-2031 industry standards. This means the subwoofer has the capacity to handle power under continuous demand, not instantaneous power handling, that over time, can damage voice coils.

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box: Rockford recommends a sealed enclosure with an optimum internal volume of 1.02 cubic feet (from 0.75 to 1.25 cubic feet is acceptable). Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music.

Ported Box: Rockford recommends a ported enclosure with an internal volume of 1.79 cubic feet using one 4" diameter x 9.3" long port; this yields a tuning frequency of 45 Hz. Ported (or vented) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed so they are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output from less power. However, this efficiency comes at the expense of very low frequency output (below 40Hz).

A
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.
