Rockford Fosgate Partners with Nissan North America
Rockford Fosgate announced that it has reached an agreement with Nissan North America to develop audio systems for three new Nissan vehicles for model year 2002, which all go on-sale in the summer of 2001.

The system, Rockford Fosgate's first ever as a direct supplier to an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), will be featured in Nissan's popular Xterra sport utility vehicle, the new Frontier truck, and the soon-to-be-announced Sentra SE-R sports sedan. Rockford Fosgate's OEM systems are designed and manufactured specific to each vehicle model and include AM/FM/CD radio source units, subwoofers, speakers and amplifiers.

"Rockford Fosgate customers live high performance lifestyles," explains H. Christopher Parvin, Rockford Fosgate's director of marketing. "They expect it from the vehicles they choose and they demand it from their music. Rockford Fosgate satisfies the music, and these Nissan models satisfy the high-octane lifestyle."

This partnership and the addition of the high-end Rockford Fosgate mobile audio product into these vehicles allows Rockford Fosgate to create brand awareness of the Rockford Fosgate name in the OEM market, enter a new distribution channel, and gain new customers.

"Rockford Fosgate is a premier aftermarket mobile audio systems manufacturer, and they are coming onboard with Nissan so we can offer our customers the best," says Scott Fessenden, Nissan North America's director of marketing. "Rockford Fosgate desires to align itself with an innovative, youthful and confident automotive manufacturer. Nissan desires to carry an audio system known for high quality and power, as well as an edge in its attitude. This represents a strong marriage of goals and vision. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with Rockford Fosgate."
