• 7 Facts about Rockford Fosgate Car Speakers

    Jim Fosgate, founder and manufacturer of Rockford Fosgate car speakers, has been a pioneer in performance car audio for over 30 years. This experience is built into all their components. Their installers are factory trained and will help design the best system for any need.

    Full Audio Systems

    Rockford Fosgate offers a full line of car audio speakers. From component systems to 2-way and 3-way configurations, in a variety of sizes, for most applications. Being a full-service provider, speakers can also be matched with a Rockford Fosgate amplifier to maximize performance.

    Bass Speakers and Woofers

    Bass speakers and woofers are constructed of die cast, vented aluminum or stamped steel frames. Some models are available with shallow frame construction for shallow-mount applications. To reduce cone distortion and piston flex, the cones are reinforced with Kevlar fibers. Compression terminals make wire connections quick. Component bass speakers are offered in sub bass (20Hz to 100Hz) and mid bass (100Hz to 250Hz) models. Sizes range from 10 to 15 inches.

    Speaker Mounting

    Rockford Fosgate car stereo speakers use a flexible mounting system for easier installation. Versatile mounting plates are designed with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) specifications in mind. These adapter plates, plus slotted speaker frames, provide additional mounting options such as round speakers in oval cutouts.
