Rockford Fosgate has announced that it has partnered with Polaris to be the exclusive OEM speaker provider for its 2017 Slingshot SL and SLR moto-roadster lineup. Available in dealerships this August, the 2017 Slingshot is equipped with a Rockford Fosgate four-speaker sound system.
The Rockford Fosgate speaker system includes four 6.5-inch, 2-way, Element Ready® drivers, each featuring a neodymium motor structure purpose built for the high output requirements of this application.
The Rockford Fosgate design team optimized the 6.5-inch speakers and each enclosure to deliver a premium sound experience without wasting cabin space or adding unnecessary weight to the vehicle. The speaker’s high efficiency and high output were designed to overcome the road and wind noise from the Slingshot’s unique open cockpit.
According to Polaris, its 2017 Slingshot SL & SLR models include an expanded line-up of accessories focused on rider comfort and customization, and that’s where Rockford Fosgate comes in.
“Slingshot’s new 2017 line-up takes the vehicle to the next level,” said Steve Menneto, President of Polaris Motorcycles. “With the new SLR, premium upgrades on the SL and 31 new accessories, including Rockford Fosgate speakers, we are giving our customers more ways to personalize their experience and make Slingshot their own. Slingshot remains committed to redefining the on-road driving experience and I encourage everyone to get out and test ride the 2017 line-up today.”
