Brand Spotlight: Rockford Fosgate
Covering the Best in Speakers, Subs, and Amps
Chances are you’ve heard the name Rockford Fosgate brought up when talking about the best choices in brand name and aftermarket car audio. After all, they’ve been in business for over 35 years and have established themselves as a major player in the stereo and speaker industry. Rockford Fosgate goes beyond just car audio though. They make lifestyle products that deliver the ultimate in audio experience for boats and recreational vehicles, too.
Their products are designed by audiophiles for an audience that expects only the best when it comes to outfitting their vehicles for sound. High-quality performance is the standard with Rockford Fosgate, and we’re spotlighting a selection of their product line to show you exactly what they bring to the table.
Rockford Fosgate T1650 Speakers
The Rockford Fosgate T1650 Speakers are part of their Power Series line of products, meaning you can expect a durable pair of 2-way 6-1/2” speakers that are built to last for many years, no matter how hard your tracks hit. As we’ve come to expect from the Rockford Fosgate brand, the design is sleek yet bold. The lightweight polypropylene cones are reinforced with durable carbon fibers so that they’ll maintain shape, even when you’ve got the volume cranked all the way up. Using their proprietary Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST), Rockford has been able to increase the overall size of the cone area without increasing the size of the basket. This translates to getting deeper lows and more power handling.
The 1” aluminum dome tweeters will showcase all those high frequencies in ways you never thought possible. Part of the magic behind that is the offset suspension system, which minimizes any acoustic reflections and provides a much cleaner sound.
The Rockford Fosgate T1650 has a power range of 10-75 watts RMS (150 watts peak power), so you’ll want to make sure to also get an amplifier to get the most of these speakers.
Rockford Fosgate Punch P1-2X12 Subwoofers
The Rockford Fosgate Punch P1-2X12 Subs will fill your vehicle with big-time volume bass so that you can thump harder than ever. The enclosure houses two Punch P1 12” woofers that feature paper cones reinforced with Kevlar fibers, supported by rubber surrounds. Durability is the name of the game. These subs can handle up to 250 watts RMS without breaking a sweat due to the heavy-duty motor assembly and advanced cooling vents.
This line of Rockford Fosgate subs come in a hatchback style, built with a rugged 5/8” medium-density fiberboard construction, meaning it can handle even the heaviest of bassline thumps. The advanced port design promotes airflow while reducing distortions and buzzing, so that bass beats are cleaner, deeper, and most importantly, louder. Their peak power clocks in at 1,000 watts.
Finally, it wouldn’t be a Rockford Fosgate product if it wasn’t hitting the right notes with the design. These subs use industrial-grade black carpeting, giving them a clean vibe about them while protecting them from scratches and gouges.
