Question about Rockford Fosgate (P212D4) Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

My subwoofers will make no sound now

I have an almost 2 year old pioneer cd player with i have hooked up to a 300 watt rockford amp and 2 p1 12 inch woofers, it was all working until a couple days ago and now produces no sound, i switched the amp out to see if that was the problem and it was not, and i also used a continuity tester on all the wires that are hidden and they all seem to have no breaks anywhere, the amp does receive full power and the light turns on properly, i think it may be a problem witht he cd player possibly but im not sure

Go through the multiple menus of your head unit, and make sure the subwoofer setting is set to "yes".

Do you have the owner's manual for the unit? What make/model is the head unit?

Can i use a 300 watt amp for 2, 800 watt woofers


yes, but you would not get the same performance as you would if you gave them the suggested power. I have found that it is always better to use a more powerful amp than your subs are rated for (as long as it is clean, high quality, low distortion power). I have had the best luck with name brand amps (kicker,rockford fosgate,phoenix gold,etc...). I hope this will be helpful to you.

Can I hook two 12in. Subs up with a 1100w amp. Sony explode, pioneer subs


Yes....hook one up to the left channel and one up to the right.....once everything is wired up.....keep gain down on amp and turn stereo on.....turn up stereo with amp gain down to right before high end speakers start to distort......then while its playing, turn amp gain up about 1/2 way. close your trunk and hop in drivers seat....sound gd????? You might have to adjust level on amp and bass on head unit to taste.....Be careful though....pioneer subs are only rated around 300 watts continuous.....dont want to blow them...gd luck....

Hello again. Sorry to say my knowledge is lil... I want to replace stock deck. Here is the stuff i want to put in it. Could you take a look and give an opinion if maybe i cant get away without putting a...


ok as for the deck just get the wiring harness for your car so you dont have to cut the old one out and that would eliminate the need for a wireing diagram with that done you should be able to hook all speakers you want to the stock spot so for a tweeter just hook it up with the door speaker there arnt any extra cords....you will only need a amp for a subwoofer unless you choose to put your mids and highs on one and if you didnt want to change your deck hook up the tweeters would be the same way hope this helped

Why does my 6x9 amp drop or not let the sound play at all when my subs are on? it just started to happen? they worked together fine before. i turn the subs off and the 6x9 work? but when i turn the subs on...


You probably have too much hooked up for the size of your power supply which is presumably a small car battery. You either need to get:

A) New, better bigger battery.
B) Capacitor in series with battery.
C) Both of the above.

Hi i have two 10'' jenson xs sub and they are about 6 years old and i was wondering wut amp size i should buy to run them.


I believe these are 4ohms, if so buy a 2ohm stable monoblock amp, that puts out 250-300 watts RMS, and connect your subs to it in parallel, don't pay attention to peak watts, look at RMS watts, or continuous watts. If they're 2 ohms, buy a 2 ohm stable 2 channel amp that puts out 125-150 watts RMS per channel, and 250-300 watts total or bridged RMS output. And connect them normally, on sub per channel... hope this helps, as far as brand recommendations, MTX, pioneer, Alpine, Kenwood... Good luck
