Rockford Corporation (Nasdaq: ROFO) today announced that Mitsubishi Motors will offer the high-output Punch(R) sound of Rockford Fosgate(R) and the high-definition and clarity of Rockford Acoustic Design(TM) audio systems as optional upgrades on six upcoming Mitsubishi vehicles.

"We are pleased to broaden and extend our partnership with Mitsubishi to give their customers what they want in a sound system," said W.

Suttle continued, "It is important to note that several of these programs will be for global vehicles, as well as vehicles sold in the U.S., Canada and Japan.  This is a positive reflection of the value that Mitsubishi places on the worldwide appeal of the Rockford brands.  As with the current programs, these new programs will run for multiple years."
