    Fosgate Audionics Is Back!

    I was at an audio store today. While I was there, a rep from Fosgate Audionics strolls in with a new amp and a pair of monitor speakers. He stated that they are re-launching Fosgate Audionics with a few new amps and atleast three sets of speakers. And of course the PLII pre/pro.

    I was pressed for time so, I didn't get alot of info. The five channel amp I saw was a beast! A plain silver front and looked to be a tad larger than my 27TX Elite receiver. The speakers had a two position switch on the front. This switch was suppose to help tame bright rooms from what the rep said.

    I am kinda excited that they are back. I have always enjoyed the products and still use a couple of them today.

    May 1 is the official launch date.

        Sorry for taking awhile Bing. Had a good weekend

        Rockford is a sub-divison of Fosgate Audionics. Jim Fosgate is the legend that developed "Rock Mode-H/K AVP1a", 6-AXIS-Citation", "Logic7-Lexicon". Harman Industries bought Fosgate sometime back, which is why, all these divison of Harman can use the the various names of the same "Logic7" technology.

        If you go to the website: http://www.fosgateaudionics.com (sorry I'm not good with hyperlinks), it will give you a brief history of the above and company.

        PS, His new Pro-Logic 2 is an extension of that same work.

                Logic 7 was invented by DR. David Griesinger of Lexicon (another Harman company). Logic 7 and 6-Axis were developed independently. 6- Axis was a forrunner of Pro Logic II, although they are quite a bit different. Jim Fosgate has been working with surround for decades and his work continues to get better and better. And it was great 20 years ago!

                  Hey Buzz, thanks for keeping me straight! :B It was my understanding that they were all out of the same mold but, implemented differently over the years. I guess I was wrong. I apologize for any bad info that I put out above!
