  12. Rockford Fosgate Punch p450.4 - 60 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms Rockford Fosgate Punch p200.2 - 50 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms Boston Acoustics Generator 12" - Subwoofer incl. enclosure. Original owner. Purchased in 2006. It has been out of the car and in storage since 2011. I have been holding on to these with the intention of installing again but it is not going to happen. They have been up on gumtree for a bit with a few interested but constant back and forward on gumtree is a bit tiresome so offering here as a bulk sale at substantial discount. Price drop. Photos
