Rockford is introducing its first Punch car audio tweeters and midrange speakers designed for the Pro Audio market or for those who want clear sound at very high volumes.
The Pro Audio niche market has been steadily growing in certain geographical markets such as Florida, New York and California. Pro Audio enthusiasts will cram many drivers into a trunk or a door, looking for loud but high sound quality audio.
Six Rockford Pro models will ship starting this quarter through March. They include two tweeters, two 6.5-inch drivers and two 8-inch drivers.
All of the speakers are offered in 4-ohm, single voice coil or 8-ohm single voice coil versions.
The midrange speakers provide 100 and 125 watt power handling. The 6-inch PPS4-6 and 8-inch PPS4-8 carry an everyday MAP price of $89.99 and $99.99, respectively. The Pro tweeter, PP4-T has an everyday MAP of $99.99.
The products will be on display in Las Vegas during the Consumer Electronics Show next month at Rockford showrooms in the Palms Casino Resort. The company has taken all the ballrooms at the hotel, amounting to 13,000 square feet of showroom.
To demonstrate the new Pro Audio products at the Palms, RTTI has custom built DJ towers using 16 eight-inch Pro speakers, 16 six-inch Pro speakers, and 12 Pro tweeters, plus 8 fifteen-inch subwoofers.
