    New Rockford Fosgate system

    Just took position of my new 2019 351M and the Rockford Fosgate system has expanded. It now has two amps and two separate subwoofers, one outside and one interior. It also has two seperate subwoofer gain dials. Here is the tag that came with the coach.

    Also it has two amps, but the top one running the smaller speakers seams to get to hot to touch.

    And, the outside speakers pop with the system is powered up and down. Any ideas on why?

    Thanks.

    On both of our Trailers the stereo popped on turn on and off. The Fostgate amps are super small compared to the Kicker system in the old rig. I haven't noticed them getting hot.

    The top one on my 349M is very hot as well (even while in storage and not actively being used). It's hot enough that it has me concerned. Will be very interested in anything you find out. May need to call the manufacturer...

    I dont have the new rockford system, but the old on my 2019. As soon as you flip the battery disconnect switch to ON, the amp powers up even though the remote wire is 0Volts. I have those same amps in my RZR, and they automatically turn on if it dectects voltage on the input wires. So basically, your amp is on all the time even though it shouldn't which why its always hot. I suspect the jensen radio must blip something out on the speaker wires when it first gets 12v power.

    On my rig, if you turn the radio on, then off, it will signal the amp to shut down and wont be a parasitic draw.
