Rockford Fosgate Packs A Powerful Sound In Its New Line Of Amplifiers

13 years, 6 months ago Rockford Fosgate, Tempe, AZ., USA / TimePiece, Dallas, TX, USA

Rockford Fosgate, the industry leader in high-performance car audio systems, announced it will offer two new AD amplifier models in its Power series, which is best known for its commanding sound in a smaller chassis design. The two new models will be unveiled in the Palms Ballroom at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, from Jan. 6-8, 2011.   The new full range Class AD amplifier models include the T600-4AD and T1000-4AD.

“We believe a premium amplifier for multichannel applications has to be affordable and driven with high-performance features,” noted Bill Jackson, president of Rockford Corporation.  “That’s why we engineered the T600 and T1000 models.  Each delivers similar quality as the other models in our Power series, but comes in a more affordable package.  I think what we’ve accomplished with these two new Class AD amps proves that great design and bold engineering can also be a great value.” 

Class AD amplifiers are better for multichannel applications because they require less devices and share a common high voltage supply.  The T600 and T1000 amplifiers feature Post Choke Feedback, Super High Output Switching Frequency and Soft Clipping that all help keep the sound output as clean as possible.

“The T1000 constantly monitors each channel’s power and dynamically adjusts the output to ensure max power is available at any impedance between 1 and 4 ohms,” explained Dave Baker, senior design engineer and electrical engineer manager for Rockford Fosgate.  “In fact, each channel is engineered to be completely independent from the others and have its own constant power and protection circuitry.  That way, true constant power can be attained by each channel independently, regardless of the impedance level.  We also ensured the T1000’s feedback is taken at the speaker connector, so the output filter is inside the feedback loop and only a pure, low distortion signal is sent to the speaker.”     

New Power series amplifier models include:
T600-4AD, 600 Watt 4 Channel Full Range Class AD Amplifier
T1000-4AD, 1000 Watt 4 Channel Full Range Class AD Amplifier
