Radioactive is proud to be the Authorized Dealer for the following audio and video system brands. We honor their warranties and are trained in their specific systems.
Rockford Fosgate®. It’s a full sentence. It means POWER! It means ATTITUDE! Since 1973, when founder Jim Fosgate put his name on the first real piece of high performance audio equipment built for the car, nothing has been the same.
While the rest of the world was struggling with really bad fashions and shoes that were way too high, Jim Fosgate, working in his garage in Arizona, USA, figured out that an amplifier, and for that matter, a car audio system would have to be dramatically different than what people were listening to in their homes.This meant an amplifier that could run low impedance loads, which meant that it would have to run in stereo and mono simultaneously. These needs then dictated that the amplifier incorporate a MOSFET design, a small detail that was unknown in the world of audio at the time. Wrap all this “technobabble” into the single most important development of the Fosgate designs… The PUNCH EQ punch amp. While working with a friend, Jim realized that music and the human ear had very different sonic signatures or “curves”. Where the human ear had the most trouble [down in lower frequencies at lower volumes] the music made it worse.The solution has been the patented Punch EQ… the ability to add up to +18dB at 45HZ…(Bass Boost) & and/or +12dB at 20kHz (Treble Boost – this is a hinge filter active from 1kHz to 20kHz.)
That’s a lot of control! Things such as car windows, leather, road noise, and even your annoying life mate that never stops yappin’… all benefit from the musical energy that Punch EQ puts back into the system. The sound of THE PUNCH gave Mr. Fosgate’s first customers the impact that their music needed. Now… that PUNCH is the sound of Rockford Fosgate® and you can hear it in everything we make.
Today’s Car Audio for Fanatics
Rockford Fosgate® is terrifying to those that don’t understand. Why would a person want thousands of watts of Rockford Fosgate® power in an amplifier that is bigger than most cars are wide? Because sometimes – too much is perfect!
Rockford Fosgate® is ready for the future. We incorporate some of the most state-of-the-art facilities in the audio business. Best of all, our Amplifiers, Signal Processors and Woofers are designed and engineered in Tempe, AZ, USA!
The consistent theme here is not just music or technology but the brilliant use of technology.
Pioneer was founded in 1938 in Tokyo, Japan by Nozomu Matsumoto – a man with a passion for music that he hoped to share with the world through high quality audio speakers. That passion began with a small operation to repair and manufacture speakers in Matsumoto’s garage. It has since grown to international stature as a manufacturer of audio and video products for use at home, in the car and in business environments.
The element that has not changed in nearly 70 years is the passion for audio and video products that we hope to share with the world. From the employees at our research labs looking for the “next big thing” to the engineers at our factories focused on quality assurance to our product trainers explaining the new technology to our customers – we remain passionate about creating an unbeatable entertainment experience.

Lightning Audio® may not be a familiar name to you. Lightning Audio was created in 1992, and immediately hit the jackpot with it’s then revolutionary capacitors. Lightning Caps became a hot-commodity, and the company quickly moved into new areas of the market. Lightning Audio was voted an Inc. 500 company in 1997. We now sell source units, amplifiers, speakers, subwoofers and accessories.
Lightning Audio has always prided itself by working on quality competition-grade car audio gear, and setting the trends that the industry follows. By combining the highest quality design, engineering and R & D they constantly increase performance, making installs even more insane, but not insane prices.
Lightning Audio started out with capacitors back in the day, but we now stock everything from one end of the system to the other. Many companies imitate but few innovate. Lightning puts its money where it’s mouth is by experimenting with new designs, new ideas to revolutionize the market of car audio. And we continually improve performance and design features. Our newest models offer more power and stability. We integrate new technologies and refine concepts to perfection.
Our commitment to competition grade audio has made us a favorite of competitors and those who just want good looking equipment that works even better.
We’re insane about car audio. We like it loud, and we don’t want it to stop. We want you to hear us and see us and go,’ man, that’s wild’. Our products reflect how crazy we are about it. We stay up at night for thinking about it.
