Default Re: Rockford Fosgate Audio Upgrade Kit

instead of messing around with this kit, i'm currently building myself a small 1 cubic foot box for a kicker cvr 10" sub. it's almost finished i'm then going to install quick connects and strap that mofo to the 3rd seat "hooks" installed in the truck.

after that i'm planning on buying the rockford front speaker replacements.

i know it's not as nice as having the sub under the seat, but i did make my box very portable... i'm not in to paying $1000 for everything... a group buy would of been nice

But i am keeping up hope and watching the thread

What would you all want to buy it at (realisticly)...and how many would be interested in that price? Let me know and I'll work on it.

You guys should be able to get a screaming deal since the new 08 H2's will no longer use this setup.

I've been seeing the kits on EBay for around $889. Honestly I doubt that a group buy would even get that good of a deal....

that's probably true if everyone is thinking that $889 is way to high.

That does sound like a good price cinsidering what retail is! I guess it depends on what you're after for audio though. $889 isn't much when you start pricing out individual components. Sure you can go buy an amp and throw a sub box inteh rear of your truck for 2/3rds of that, but this has a unique design.

I'd be more than happy to demo this porduct and do nice writeup on it.

ha! I'm sure anyone on this board would be willing to do a little write-up on it. I had it in an H2 for about 5 months and loved it...it sounds like a GOOD, stock stereo should will a little extra bass when you crank it. Hopefully its what the 08s will sound like!

For $1300, you could have a set of Focal 6.5" door spkrs and a JL Audio amp installed and produce a far better sound, including more bass, than this Fosgate setup. I do like the idea of having a subwoofer enclosure that is easily removable, but how about not having a subwoofer enclosure at all, but having a sound that was so good, that people would swear you HAD a subwoofer! No, I don't work for Focal, but I just had my 3rd set of them installed. 1st set in my F250, loved them, in my wifes 350z, love them, now my H2. Of course, I don't ever use my midgate, so I forked over a little extra and had 2x 12's installed under my rear seat in a custom fiberglass box just last week. Just letting you guys know that you don't have to go as far as I did, just the Focal's by themselves are amazing.

Wouldn't buy the fosgate kit for 900 either. All you're getting is a nice box, the woofer and amp is worthless in this package, according to someone I know. You're really keeping the factory sound with just a little tiny bit of added thump, and I mean little bitty. You'll think it sounds better at first, but its so unnoticable you'll be wishing you saved your money later on, OR you'll take it out one day when you need to use your midgate, and just never put it back in, because its not worth the 30secs of your time to hear nothing.

Of course, there's always this option. Not too much, not too little. Still maintain midgate window functionality. Sounds like theres 15's stacked in the rear cargo, but theres not. Still rattle pictures in my house.

Thank you. It was $2,300. Which is a little high considering I already had the amps. Took the amps out of my F250 when I traded it in. However, it is a custom fiberglass setup, not cheap to begin with. They also had to install a 2guage wiring kit. Also, the woofers were something like 189/ea, plus there was a 3yr extended warranty added which guarantees the entire system no questions asked for $250. If I blow something up, it gets replaced.

Well I upgraded the front speakers using the Fosgate Punch series P163C, WOW what a difference! Much better highs and definitely better bass!

Has anyone changed out the rear speakers using these Fosgates? Will it make a substantial difference?

I wanted to get the subwoofer, but seeing how much of an improvement these made I am thinking a second set would do the trick.

Edit: I notice the upgrade kit only comes with front speakers and a subwoofer, so maybe it doesnt improve the sound.
