21 years, 3 months ago Tempe, AZ

Seattle – After a tremendously successful debut at the 2003 CES, Rockford Fosgate’s 2003 Nissan 350Z sports coupe stole the show at this year’s first Hot Import Nights by claiming First Place in the Two-Door Extreme Class. “Year after year we have built world-class demo vehicles that more often than not walk away from events with the ‘Best of Show’ title,” explains mark Fukuda, director of Rockford Technical Training Institute (RTTI). “In 2001 it was the Frontier. In 2002 it was the Xterra. Now it is the 350Z’s turn. Jason Digos masterminded this insane install with the help of his RTTI teammates Kyle Witherspoon and Mike Eckley. All did an incredible job with this vehicle. It turns heads wherever it goes.” The 350Z incorporates nothing but the best that Rockford Fosgate has to offer. With a Carbon Fiber hood, up front is the new RFXRAV DVD source unit that feeds video to three Rosen monitors. The heart of the audio system includes two Type RF XC4 and one Type RF XC7 amplifiers. They feed the juice to two 12-inch HE2 woofers, two pair of FNQ 3614 component systems including one FNQ 3514 mid (center channel) and one FNQ 4401X tweeter (center channel). You will also find three OEQ2 equalizers and Connecting Punch Dead Skin sound damping and accessories. Upgrades and special thanks go to Rosen Entertainment, NISSMO (rear spoiler), Concept1, Durel Corporation, Espelir, HKS, Makin Industries, StitchCraft Interiors, Rays Engineering Wheels, Bridgestone Tires, and paint by Rocky’s Pure Kustoms (Mesa, Ariz.). This 350Z demo will join Rockford’s other current demo vehicles, the two Frontiers and the Xterra, provided by Nissan that showcase the latest product and technologies from both companies.
