    Rockford knockoff?

    Pioneer amp

    Looks like a Rockford 400/800a4 with some Pioneer stickers slapped on it...HOWEVER...those Rockford amps have a little diamond in the middle with the RF logo on it, which leads me to believe that it is in fact a Rockford knockoff. But the terminals and everything look like RF...I'm so confused lol. Trying to get the guy to send me some gut pics, but he has been too busy to do so lately.

    Anyone have any idea what is going on here?

    by the way, that amp had to have been made long after that rf case was discontinued, or it would have the pioneer "omega" and different font.... the pioneer font that is on it was not even made yet when the rf's had that case....
