Rockford Fosgate 40th Anniversary
Headquartered in Tempe, Arizona, Rockford Corporation is a publicly traded company that manufactures its products under the brand Rockford Fosgate. The company markets and distributes high-performance audio systems for the mobile, motorsport, and marine audio aftermarket and OEM market.

The company celebrates  its 40th anniversary this year. Jim Fosgate, the founder of Rockford Fosgate, is often referred to as the inventor of the car audio amplifier. He and his audio enthusiast friends experimented with audio reproduction and the acoustics inside of the automobile and eventually developed the first Fosgate Electronics product that debuted at the 1973 Consumer Electronics Show in Chicago. Shortly after, Fosgate created, what is now known as, the Punch Equalization circuit and began marketing the first car stereo systems. After six years of building awareness for better sound in cars, Jim Fosgate found investment partners and in June of 1980 Rockford Fosgate was founded.

At the launch of Rockford Fosgate, the company only offered 4 amplifiers that were originally sold by Jim in 1979 under the name Fosgate Electronics Car Stereo System. These PR series amps were rebranded as the Rockford Fosgate PR2100, PR250, PR235 and PR220 Type II models.

With a new brand name, the addition of speakers, and a passionate team, Rockford Fosgate sparked the car audio craze and over the next decade, formed partnerships with specialty retail stores across the US. With a solid foundation and a high energy dealer network, Rockford Fosgate high performance audio skyrocketed into the 1990s. People loyal to the brand dubbed themselves Fanatics after Rockford Fosgate's original tag line 'Car Audio for Fanatics'.

"It's interesting to reflect on the last 40 years. The brand has come a long way!" says Bill Jackson, Rockford CEO and president. "Rockford Fosgate has been built by passionate, dedicated employees, a great sales rep force and a loyal dealer network. But most of all, it is the Fanatical customers that have supported the brand and carried the Rockford Fosgate DNA forward. We are proud of our 40 years and look forward to the next 40!" Jackson continued.

The momentum continues today. Rockford Fosgate currently markets over 400 audio products that are designed, and purpose built for automobiles, motorcycles, boats, and off-road vehicles. Fanatics span the globe from North America across more than 120 countries worldwide.
