Rockford Fosgate Found in Mitsubishi 2018 Models
Rockford Fosgate® is POWER. That’s how the audio company describes themselves, and for those who have experienced a vehicle with this system, they know it’s true. Specifically, consumers who ride around in a Mitsubishi model will get a true taste for how good music can really sound. Most Mitsubishi models start out with a four-speaker or six-speaker system, but mostly high-tier trims come standard with a Rockford Fosgate speaker system. Driven by performance, Mitsubishi Motors also goes for performance audio when trusting Rockford Fosgate.
About Rockford Fosgate
“Since day one, we’ve spearheaded the car audio revolution. Nothing’s changed. Rockford Fosgate® is still the global leader in audio innovation, design and engineering, delivering an experience of passion through sound in a way the world has never felt before.” – Rockford Fosgate.
That’s what the company has to say about itself. Leading the industry for 35 years, Rockford Fosgate has grown into a community with culture and common ground – crisp, rich sounding music. Made up of high-performance pioneers, Rockford Fosgate develops technology designed to give sound a real “punch!” Rockford Fosgate systems come with Punch Control®, a frequency energizer that gives the driver the control over their music for deep, rich bass and crystal-clear highs.
The Rockford Fosgate system available in select Mitsubishi models is made up of nine speakers, a 10-inch dual-voice coil subwoofer (with Punch Control), and several technologies to enhance the music experience. This includes: Digital Signal Processing that uses computers to process and manipulate real-world signals like voice, audio, and video for better “sound”; DTS Neural Surround™ for seamless transitions between mono, stereo, and other audio signals; and PremiDIA-WIDE Surround and Dolby volume for consistent quality across multiple sources and content.
Mitsubishi Models and Rockford Fosgate Availability
Not all 2018 Mitsubishi models come available with a premium Rockford Fosgate nine-speaker system. The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage and the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 are left with a four-speaker sound system standard amongst both lineups with Digital HD Radio or an AM/FM/CD/MP3 compatible system. Select trims will come with a 7-inch touch panel display system to control the audio, or a 6.5-inch smartphone link display audio system for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
All other models have the premium Rockford Fosgate nine-speaker sound system available on select trims. For the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander, the premium Rockford Fosgate sound system is optional on the Outlander SEL 2.4, with or without Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) to upgrade to from its standard six-speaker system, and comes standard on the Outlander GT 3.0 with All-Wheel Control (AWC) (standard). These trims also come with a 7-inch smartphone link display audio system for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Digital HD Radio, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio for three-months.
For the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, the premium Rockford Fosgate nine-speaker sound system is only an optional add-on in the Outlander Sport SEL 2.4, with or without AWC. Standard, this trim comes with a six-speaker system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Digital HD Radio, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio for three-months.
The newest addition to the North American lineup, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), has a similar setup to the other trims. Only the Outlander PHEV GT S-AWC comes with a premium Rockford Fosgate nine-speaker sound system, whilst the SEL S-AWC comes with a six-speaker system. Both trims, a total of two in the lineup, do however come with a 7-inch smartphone link display audio system for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Digital HD Radio, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio for three-months. This model is a little spoiled out of the North American lineup, but since the Outlander PHEV is making its first debut in the states for the 2018 model year, packing it with tech is the right move.
Now that we all know how good Rockford Fosgate sound systems are, we know why Mitsubishi models have a partnership with them. Ready for your own Mitsubishi model with rich and clear sound? Check our inventory for a 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, or Outlander PHEV.
