Rockford Fosgate, the industry leader in high-performance car audio systems, announced it will launch its updated and expanded 2013 Prime Series amplifier line during its 2013 Product Showcase at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nev. from Jan. 8- 10, 2013, in The Palms Ballroom. Six new models will round out the line, and are scheduled to ship in Q1, 2013.

“Our goal with the 2013 Prime amplifier line was to make them more installer friendly, better performing, and to make every model have a consistent cosmetic look.” explained Theresa Hephner, Rockford’s senior director of product development and marketing. The purpose-built Prime Series features a line with a common chassis design that boasts a significant increase in thermal mass per square inch, top mount controls (crossover, phase, input switch, gain control, and Punch EQ), and included Punch Level Control (in select models). The six new models also accept signal from low level sources via RCA or from high level speaker inputs via the included connector.

Hephner continued, “With all of the on-board features built in to a new cast chassis, I believe that we more than achieved the goal.”
