Ok, who else has the rockford system in their ser or spec v? I'm pretty damn sure I blew my rear speakers already and am wondering if anyone else has done the same. If so, is it possible to get the delaer to put in new ones since its under warranty? ( I know thats something thats usually not covered)

I've had my Spec V for about 1.5 months and I thing I blew them too, its a slight scratch thats hard to hear but u can hear it if u listen for it, and its not so clear in higher volume as it was when I bought it.

Yeah, thats exactly how mine is now. Oh well, I guess the extra money wasn't worth it after all if I'm gonna replace it now.

Audio Fanatic is definitely not worth the money. I had to get it for the sunroof for the 02s. For the 03s instead you now have to get the ABS and airbags.

If I go back to the dealer will my complaint hold water for warranty? I mean cmon the car isnt even 2 months old and it already popped the speakers ... will it get replaced?

response to stereo system

I have a 2001 SE (sentra) with the "upgraded" stereo, which means the 8inch sub. I've had it replaced 3 times. I've also had my rear speakers replaced 2 times. The dealership will replace them. They have to! If not I'd contact the GM of the dealership and talk to him directly. That is what I did.

I even went out to the lot with a tech and we played the stereo in 2 exact models like mine and it had the same issue. The little extra rattle. They told me that they can not do any type of recall just yet because it isn't a Nation Wide problem. I'll keep my comments to myself of what i REALLY think of that.

let me know.

here are my thoughts .... Yeah the speakers suck, ok fine, we've established that. Why am I going to go and battle with the dealership to replace them. It will only frustrate my life, and lets say after all that back and forth crap they finally replace the crap. It's gonna be replaced by the same $hit that blew the first time. So after all that I get to leave my car for a while so they can replace the crap just to have to bring it back 2 weeks later to have them replaced again ... my thoughts save a couple hundred dollars and replace all the spkrs, even the sub and the tweeters and never have to deal with it again.

I understand what you are saying and I agree but i didn't spend a cent with those times I got them replaced.

Since then I've swapped the head-unit and added my own sub in the trunk. :D

I doubt I'm going back to the dealer to have them replace the speakers. I'm just gonna go straight for pioneer premiere.

ok, first of all....the "rockfor fostgate" upgraded system that comes with the spec-v isnt really fockford fosgate all around, the only thing that is rockford fosgate is the deck, and the 8' sub....the speakers in the back and door are clarion...and clarion sux....so just save yourself the headache, like i did and go to best buy..and get yourself a REAL rockford fosgate component system.....its worth it...the reason why the clarion speakers suck is because they cant take the wattage the rockford fosgate deck is putting out, so the just pop....besides....the rockford fosgate componenet system is cheap if you know someone that works there, its normally priced at about 120$ but employees get it for like 60 to 80 bucksm and thats for the speaker and tweter......i should know, i work there and i replaced the shitty clarions three weeks after i bought the car...and im completely satisfied.....

We got screwed

I got this off of the associated press website and from what i can read looks like all hte components of the rockford system was advertised with all the components of the sytem being rockford and not clarion check this out.



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."

To optimize performance, the high-efficiency amplifiers feature independent equalization curves for each channel. The tentative product specifications for each model are as follows:

The 2002 Nissan Xterra SE & XE will include: system designed to Rockford Fosgate's sonic signature "The Punch"; a two DIN AM/FM/RDS/6-disc source unit/in-dash CD changer (frequency response (CD) +\- 3dB, 20Hz-20kHz); an amplifier that drives 1-ohm loads per channel and 72 watts (12V Batt) per channel with built-in equalization, custom tailored to the vehicle; the lower front door speaker uses a 6.5" 1 ohm driver and a special 1 ohm voice coil; the upper front door speaker uses a 4-ohm, 25mm tweeter; the rear speaker systems are 2-ohm 6" x 9" full-range speakers located in the rearmost side panels.

The 2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R will include: system designed to Rockford Fosgate's sonic signature "The Punch"; a single DIN AM/FM/CD source unit (frequency response (CD) +\- 3dB, 20Hz-20kHz); an amplifier that drives 1-ohm loads per channel and 72 watts (12V Batt) per channel with built-in equalization, custom tailored to the vehicle; the lower front door speaker uses a 6.5" 1 ohm driver and a special 1 ohm voice coil; the upper front door speaker uses a 4-ohm, 25mm tweeter; the rear speaker systems are 6.5" coaxial speakers using a 3-ohm coil for the mid and a 4-ohm tweeter; the subwoofer is a single 8", dual 2-ohm voice coil in a custom enclosure.

The 2002 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab & Supercharged Frontier will include: system designed to Rockford Fosgate's sonic signature "The Punch"; two DIN AM/FM/RDS/6-disc source unit/in-dash CD changer. (frequency response (CD) +\- 3dB, 20Hz-20kHz); an amplifier that drives 1-ohm loads per channel and 72 watts (12V Batt) per channel with built-in equalization, custom tailored to the vehicle; the lower front door speaker uses a 6.5" 1 ohm driver and a special 1 ohm voice coil; the upper front door speaker uses a 4-ohm, 25mm tweeter; the rear speaker systems are 2-ohm 5" coaxial speakers located in the rearmost side panels; the subwoofer is a single 8", dual 2-ohm voice coil in a custom enclosure.

Specifications for all models subject to change without notice.

Killerbones, from that press release/article it doesn't actually say that the speakers are Fosgate. It says the system is system "designed to" Fosgate's signature system. Still very misleading.

So if I was gonna replace them, all I would need would be the front speakers, rear speakers, and tweeters? I don't want to waste any money.

Yeah, that sounds like BS. Aren't there tweeters in the back also? I don't know much about speaker systems. I know we have those 2 rear speakers, but is that it back there? Oh well. I should have used that to lower the price of the car. :rolleyes:

By the way I did notice the Clarions suck. They aren't loud at all, and it's the on thing in the car that didn't impress people I showed it to.

the clarions cant hold the wattage that the deck and amp is putting out, so they either dont get any luder or just pop...like i said before, get a well known manufacturer of component systems and believe....you will be very impressed with it...and it twice louder....GL...:cool:

Look at the bright side, most of the work is already done: you don't have to makes holes to install components in the front, you already have a non-intrusive sub box and an amp, you already have the power. On most car you have to replace everything!

And even if you don't change a thing, it's still above average for the price.

On my car I notice that if the volume is not high enough, I get a very boomy bass which gives me headaches. But at higher volume it's not too bad and the head unit has more headroom than most aftermarket ones I've owned in the past.
