Tempe, Ariz. - Rockford Fosgate
introduced a new Shallow line of subwoofers in its Prime R2 series.

The line includes a
10-inch ($89.99) or 12-inch ($99.99) subwoofer offered in dual 2- or 4-ohm
configurations. Mounting depths are listed as 3.4 inches on the 10-inch model
and 3.6 inches on the 12-inch.

The Shallow models are
said to be capable of handling 200 to 500 watts of power and produce typical
in-car sound pressure levels of 130 dB. They have 2-inch voice coil diameters,
according to the company's website. 

Drew Kallen, director of
loudspeaker engineering for Rockford Fosgate, said the subwoofers are designed
to fit in shallow applications using a one-piece cone.
