Rockford Fosgate’s 2004 source unit line consists of six models that will be sure to fit the needs of the first time aftermarket mobile audio buyer as well as the hard-core aftermarket veteran. “In-car video and high performance audio is where it’s all at in today’s marketplace and, of course, Rockford Fosgate has stepped up to lead the industry,” exclaims Ron Trout, Rockford Fosgate managing director. “Our 2004 RAV video and RFX audio source units are built for ease of use with features that will blow your mind by providing both extreme sound quality as well as performance in a cosmetic package that’s second-to-none. From the first time source unit buyer to the car audio fanatic who recognizes the Rockford Fosgate brand and the legendary performance that is associated with it, our 2004 RAV and RFX source unit line has the answer for them.” Rockford Fosgate’s 2004 RAV video and RFX audio series allows a Rockford customer to use the source units as a perfect cornerstone of a very high performance system. These units feature industry-leading performance in their pre-amp sections that provide an exceptional starting point for building an entire high-end audio and/or video system. By offering a state-of-the-art source unit to match Rockford Fosgate’s industry leading amplifiers and speakers, all the links in the audio chain are sonically superior. Adds Bill Jackson, Rockford vice president – mobile audio, “For the past few years, Rockford’s audio and video source units have won multiple Design and Engineering Showcase awards and have been extremely well received in the marketplace. They have already gained a tremendous amount of popularity in a relatively short period of time and have proved to the industry that we are the leaders in MP3 category and now in the video category, as well. Our 2004 models continue in this tradition by offering units with competitive features, high performance, the hottest cosmetics available, and competitive price, all from a premium line.” All four of Rockford Fosgate’s 2004 RFX source units provide AM/FM ST/CD/CD-R/CD-RW with MP3 playback and file management.
