CLASS BD - The Rockford Fosgate bd amp design topology is more efficient than typical class AB and has lower distortion than class D car amp designs. Rockford bd car amplifiers are 75-80% efficient vs. 20-60% efficient class ab amplifiers. Delivering more audio power from your amplifier with less drain on your vehicle's electrical and charging system.
CLASS AD - The Rockford Fosgate ad amp design topology brings our high efficiency bd amplifier design to a full range application for your car or truck. Using our Dynamic Frequency Switching to increase the switching frequency during lower output levels for better signal resolution. Coupled with Post Choke Feedback Filtering to compare the input signal to the output signal at the speaker connector removing any unwanted distortion. These technologies eliminate inherent switching
CLASS D - High efficiency amplifier design that reduces current consumption from the charging system in your car or truck
FULL RANGE CLASS D -High efficiency amplifier design that reduces current consumption from the charging system
CLASS TA - The trans•ana topology operates the output stage with its full voltage gain, which allows the input stage to operate from a low voltage regulated supply. The signal is then shifted up in level to the high voltage section by the driver stage which forms an active node at ultrasonic frequencies. This results in a very stable, highly linear operation.
CLASS BR - To achieve higher efficiency with lower distortion, Rockford's br topology combines, Cycle-by-Cycle, an indirectly coupled high/low voltage rail linear topology with a switched high/low voltage linear rail topology. This combination yields an unsurpassed power density (watts per cubic inch).
CLASS AB - The combination of a class B power output with the class A low distortion attributes make class AB the most common amplifier topology in the electronics industry.
Not sure which is the best subwoofer for your car or truck? Below we have put each of our subwoofers to the test on a variety of performance metrics, so you can match the right bass to your mobile speakers and amps.
Basket - Also referred to as the subwoofer box, frame or chassis, this is the skeletal system of your car's subwoofer. Here to keep everything in its place.
Spider - Second part of the car's subwoofer suspension, connects the cone and voice coil to the basket and controls the travel of the cone assembly.
Voice Coil - The brains of the operation, directing the force from the magnet to push or pull based on the applied electrical signal from your car or truck.
Surround - First part in the car sub's suspension, attached to the cone to maintain the centering of the voice coil in the magnetic gap.
Cone - A.K.A the diaphragm, this is the voice of the speaker. Shape and material dramatically change tonality.
Magnet - The heart of the subwoofer, creating the force to push and pull cone assembly. Size, material, and design may differ, depending on performance goals.
We have designed a variety of our best car speakers to fit any audio system. Below we have highlighted the performance of each of our stereo speakers based on metrics like accuracy, frequency, and peak power so you know exactly what's going to blast out of your speakers and give you the most pristine for your car or truck.
Tweeter - Composed of the same parts as our standard car audio speaker, surround, cone, voice coil, basket and magnet. Just on a smaller scale.
Crossover - Car audio crossover works like a switchboard, directing the audio signal through caps, filters and switches to the appropriate speaker in your car or truck.
Surround - First part in the speakers suspension, attached to the cone to maintain the centering of the voice coil in the magnetic gap.
Cone - A.K.A the diaphragm, this is the voice of the car's speaker. Shape and material dramatically change tonality.
Basket - Also referred to as the speaker box, frame or chassis, this is the skeletal system of your car's stereo speaker. Here to keep everything in its place.
Magnet - The heart of the car speaker, creating the force to push and pull cone assembly. Size, material, and design may differ, depending on performance goals.
