Rockford Fosgate Initiates First Annual 'Conquer the Rock-for-Fosgate' Contest


Rockford Fosgate attends Nissan(R) enthusiasts 'goneMOAB' event in Utah

TEMPE, AZ - August 20, 2008: Rockford Corporation today announced they selected winners for their "Conquer the Rock-for-Fosgate" contest sponsored at the 2008 goneMOAB event in Moab, UT the week of May 18th, 2008. The goneMOAB event is the premier gathering of Nissan truck and SUV enthusiasts featuring off-road trails for everyone, from the first time 4x4 adventurers to the most skillful of rock-crawling and extreme trail experts.

The "Conquer the Rock-for-Fosgate" contest encouraged Nissan enthusiasts in attendance to submit a photo of their Nissan vehicle in an impressive off-road setting. With Moab's steep inclines, massive boulders and rugged trails abound, the ingredients for award-winning photos weren't tough to come by. The top three photos were selected and prizes are being awarded, including a complete Rockford Fosgate audio system for Tyler Hagan, the first place winner. Every contestant who entered will receive a shirt and banner for participating. The winning photos will be found at within the days to come.

Rockford Fosgate's high performance audio systems are available in numerous Nissan vehicles including the Xterra and Frontier, which were found traversing the challenging terrain Moab is famous for during the event. For 2009, these models are offering Rockford Fosgate premium audio systems that feature a cutting-edge new DSP amplifier for better than ever sonic performance. The premium audio systems produce detailed and accurate sound, along with the legendary deep and powerful bass customers call the PUNCH(R) -- that feeling of power at impact. The Rockford Fosgate audio systems, sure to impress any music lover who demands the best, are available later this year when the 2009 Xterra and Frontier begin arriving at dealerships.

"As Nissan's high-performance audio partner, we enjoy every opportunity to support the enthusiasts who are passionate about Nissan off-roading," says Dan Vandenbergh, Rockford Fosgate OEM Managing Director, "This year's goneMOAB was a fun and memorable event for everyone involved, we are already looking forward to participating again next year."

Congratulations to Tyler Hagan, Chris Patrick and Jonathan Williams, our winners for the 2008 Conquer the Rock-for-Fosgate photo contest.
