Rockford said it will provide all technical support, customer service and warranty service for the Panasonic models offered. Products will be sold through Rockford's network of 12-volt specialty retailers.
Two in-dash stereo models will initially be offered, starting at $99 and $139, beginning March 7. Additional models will follow in Q3 and Q4 of this year, the company said.
"Our goal is to provide a value to our dealers," said Bill Jackson, president and CEO of Rockford Corporation.
