The Big Dawg
Rockford Fosgate's HT technology debuts with what could possibly be the future of mobile amplifier technology and performance as we know it. Being introduced at the 2006 Consumer Electronics show is the T15kW 15,000-watt amplifier. So, what is this HT Technology? Hybrid Technology (HT) advantages include unmatched dynamic power capabilities and the ability to drive low-impedance loads and reduce the strain on a vehicle's electrical system. Unsurpassed sound quality and performance are gained by the use of state-of-the-art components and materials. Typical amplifiers draw 150 amps of current per 1,000 watts produced. HT Technology draws around 30 amps per 1,000 watts produced. Imagine a time when a 200-watt amplifier draws only 6 amps of current. The HT technology will someday be handed down to Rockford Fosgate mobile amplifiers in the future. A normal amplifier of this size would draw over 2,100 amps of current. If not for the patent-pending power supply, this amplifier would not be possible. For more information on this and other future products, check out
