Rockford Fosgate Ships ’13 Prime Series

Rockford Fosgate Ships ’13 Prime Series

By TWICE Staff On Feb 27 2013 - 2:26pm




Tempe, Ariz. — Rockford Fosgate has begun shipping its 2013 Prime series of full-range speakers and amplifiers.

The Klippel-verified Prime series is said to increase power handling over the former series. The two-way drivers have a horn-loading design that provides a phase-correct relationship with the mid and tweeter, providing better off-axis sound, the company said.

The 3-way loudspeakers are designed with a 0.5-inch tweeter mount so it can more easily fit behind factory door panels. All models come with grilles, speaker wire and connectors.

Rockford Fosgate reps will take Ford Transit Connect vans to high-school and college football games, car shows, festivals, and other local events to promote awareness of car audio in general and Rockford Fosgate in particular.


Las Vegas – Rockford Fosgate is stepping up efforts to promote car-audio awareness among the nation’s youth through a demo-vehicle program that puts a tricked-out compact panel van in the hands of the company’s independent reps.

 “Twelve- to 18-year-olds are not aware of car audio,” said Theresa Hephner, senior director of products and marketing for parent Rockford Corp. Other aftermarket car audio companies do not offer demo-vehicle programs to their reps to promote their vans, she noted.
