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.

I realize this is OLD, but I'm SO confused. I bought a 2002 sentra se-r over a year ago. It has an alpine 250 watt v12 amp with a 10 inch car sub(can't remember the brand) in a home theater sub box. A pioneer mvh-x36bt head unit. The previous owner replaced the rear deck speakers, they are 6.5's(see no tweeters in the rear deck or a spot for them). They also disconnected the pillar tweeters and replaced the front door speakers(also 6.5's) and installed tweeters in the door panels up high(no crossover by the way). Under the pioneer head unit is the heat/blower control panel, then below that is a rectangle space that looks like it could have had the chance changer in it. Now its just a plate covering the hole. The bottom side of the rear deck has a white plastic square box the size of a butter dish. I see no spot where a sub could have been mounted. Does this sound like my car had the fosgate system in it? It sounds like i have/had some parts of the fosgate package and some aren't there. I'm very confused.

If you go to NissanPartsDeal.com, you can enter your Sentra's VIN # and look up the parts, such as the head unit, and it will show you the part that was installed in your car from the factory. You could be able to make a determination whether your car had the Rockford Fosgate system or not.

I just did a carfax search for my vin and it says I have a 2002 Nissan sentra se-r spec-v! I have a sunroof which was an extra package. And I'll check my vin on that website but I'm pretty sure it had the fosgate package. Where the cd changer should be is just a plate that looks like it was made by someone. No cubby hole that non fosgate comes with. I know it's not a spec-v because the biggest giveaway is no brembo calipers. Anyways, thanks for the info. I'll check it out. One last thing I didn't mention earlier, there's a set of rca cables that I do not know where they come from. My pioneer mvh-x36bt has only one rca output and it's going to my alpine. The other rca set, I'll have to chase them down. No idea where they come from or why they're there lol.
