|More and more local retailers and installation shops are Dropping Rockford Fosgate. They do stand behind their product, but the amount of failures is unaceptable for many customers. They make an awesome strong subwoofer, but in my opinion they are not a good amplifier manufacturer. Yes, you get Raw power, but it is NOT clean, and the amplifier design consists of SMT's and Non-Servicable circuits.
What's this mean to the customer? - Downtime and hassle of having to swap it out.
Be ready to have a power capacitor ready for one of these, and Plenty of ventillation. Most of the power it consumes goes up into Heat. Not a very efficient A/B amp.
It's a "Fad" amp. All the large retailers carry it, and despite it's dirty characteristics, low end stereo shops boust "How cool it is to have a Rockford Fosgate in your car".
When your ready to get Serious about car audio, move up to something with real power, and CLEAN audio.
Rockfords Fosgate division just isn't making the grade.|
