Rockford Fosgate Adds Prime Car Amps

Tempe, Ariz. –

Rockford Fosgate

has begun shipping
a line of four Prime Class D full-range and mono amplifiers said to be smaller
than their predecessors.

Two full-range and
two mono amps priced from a suggested $289 to $449 range in output from 400 to 1,200
watts with 2-ohm or 1-ohm stability.

“The technology
we’ve engineered into the new full range and mono Class-D amplifiers allow them
to be much smaller and generate less heat,” said product development director Jake

The two
four-channel full-range Prime amps are the $289.99 R400-4D, rated at 400 watts
total, and the $399 R600-4D, rated at 600 watts total.

The mono amps are
the $349 750-watt R750-1D and $449 1,200-watt R1200-1D.

 Their Class D designs deliver high
output with reduced current consumption from a car’s charging system. They
feature onboard variable Punch EQ circuitry, integrated top-mount controls, and
optional wired level control.

Rockford Corp.
president Bill Jackson said the amps’ technology is “not typically seen at this
price point” and will encourage consumers to upgrade their factory systems.
