The Story of

Rockford Fosgate

Squares

1973

In 1973, Jim Fosgate made a startling discovery while working in his garage in Arizona, USA. Mr. Fosgate realized that music and the human ear have different audio properties. The human ear didn’t have the same sonic “curve” or signature, which made lower frequencies sound different at low volumes than the actual music. Mr. Fosgate invented a solution- the patented Punch EQ, which adds a Bass Boost of up to  +18dB at 45HZ and/or +12dB at 20kHz, a Treble Boost enabling better sound reproduction in the ear (a hinge filter active from 1kHz to 20kHz).

In other words, that’s a lot of control! Your entire driving environment - car windows, road noise and your annoying life mate that never stops yappin'… all benefit from the musical energy that Punch EQ injects back into the system. The sound of THE PUNCH gave Mr. Fosgate’s first customers the impact that their music needed. Now… that same PUNCH is the sound of Rockford Fosgate® and you can hear it in everything we make.

Innovation Timeline

1973

Like mad scientists, Jim Fosgate and audio enthusiast friends spent long days and countless late nights experimenting and developing the first Fosgate Electronics® product for consumers, the PR-7000 amplifier. Fosgate demonstrated the PR-7000 at the 1973 Consumer Electronics Show in Chicago. Shortly after, Fosgate developed the Punch Equalization circuit, creating a car audio quality never heard before. The Punch and Punch POWER brands were born making POWER the top-of-the-line in audio equipment.

1982

1982 brought a punch from Rockford Fosgate® - the Punch Power 360 amplifier. The sleek black design with ground aluminum heat sink fins pioneered the Black and Grind style of amplifiers. The Power 360 unleashed a punch of 360 watts with four channels and 90 watts per channel. The Punch Power 360 – an amplifier that can play all your music.

2011

Rockford Fosgate® brought massive power output to small stealth installations with the Punch PBR300X4 300 Watt multi-channel amplifier, featuring the patented Boosted Rail Technology, which became the cornerstone for the complete line of Rockford compact amplifiers that exists today. Efficient and compact, the PBR300X4 delivers big sound with power to motorcycles, RVs, boats and any situation where electricity is limited.

2012

In 2012, we launched the T5652-S 2-way component speaker system for those who are serious about their music. The T5 was designed with the best quality features and components that music aficionados love, delivering a concert experience to your vehicle. The TF featured a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) cone for maximum durability and VAST technology that increased cone size by 25 percent, resulting in more output and extended frequency reproduction.

2013

In 2013, Rockford Fosgate® unveiled the Rosetta Stone for modern, complex audio systems in the 3Sixty.3. The ultimate car audio processor, the 3Sixty.3 features 8-channels of interactive signal processing that streamlined the audio signal from your stereo, sending it seamlessly to your amp and speakers in clear DSP surround sound, eliminating the cluster of annoying relays, adapters, and cables.

2015

Our 2015 T1 Slim fit woofer was created with a revolutionary design placing it in a class all its own in the speaker industry. Rockford engineers set out to create a slim woofer that could perform like a full depth woofer. They hit the bullseye by creating and patenting two completely new technologies, the Encapsulated Voice Coil Coupling technology and the Split Yoke Motor Structure, delivering better sound for the T1 than its full-size counterpart.

2016

The T3 19inch subwoofer is the resulting triumph of over five years of R&D by the Rockford Fosgate® product development team. The T3 is the gold standard for Rockford woofers. The best-in-class woofer uses cutting edge design and advanced technology in engineering to create what can only be described as a “Super Woofer”. The T3 has an astounding 34mm of excursion with 3000-watts RMS/6000-watts Peak power handling, making it an un-rivaled high power, high output Sound Pressure Level leader.

2017

This amp kicks bass! Its Class A/D design combines high-fidelity output with class D power efficiency, delivering a superior ground shaking sound quality that’s second to none. The TM1000 produces music the way it was meant to be heard. Our constant power circuitry provides up to 25 percent more ear-drum-rattling power output across all speakers, giving you more volume when you want to crank it up.
