Fosgate Audionics

Introducing the new Fosgate FAPT1+ A/V Processor. This processor is the successor to the FAPT1 which was based on the East Tech Clone processor used by Sherbourn, Outlaw / Atlantic Technology.

A highlight for us during CES 2004 was when we learned from Fosgate Engineers that the Triple Crossover problem we discovered during our review of the Sherbourn PT-7000 has been resolved by a firmware upgrade.  This may explain why some of our friends in the forum did not experience this issue.  These units may have shipped after the firmware upgrade eradicated the problem.
