Control and monitor your amp's signal from the front seat

Rockford Fosgate's RLC2 wired remote allows you to control the volume of your Punch amp that's equipped with the C.L.E.A.N. (Calibrated Level Eliminates Audible Noise) setup system. From the driver's seat, you'll be able to adjust the amp's output level and monitor its incoming signal for distortion.

After using C.L.E.A.N. technology to set your amp's gain, just keep an eye on the RLC2's light. It'll turn red when the musical source is distorting, warning you to turn the receiver's volume down before your speakers or subwoofer suffer any damage.

Product Research


Overview: The Rockford Fosgate PLC2 is a wired remote level control, compatible with select Punch series amplifiers. Once the gain control on the amp is set, the PLC2 can attenuate (turn down, not increase) the level from that point, up to -20dB.

LED: The PLC2 features a built-in dual purpose LED; it lights up when the amplifier is powered on, and mirrors the Input Clip indicator on the amp when using the CLEAN setup procedure. The unit also includes an external LED, used when mounting the PLC2 unit without its housing.

Installation: The PLC2 includes cables and mounting hardware for installation. The wired remote can be mounted in a variety of ways:

  • Outside Panel Install: the PLC2 module is surface mounted in its housing, using the included mounting bracket and two mounting screws
  • Panel Install with Front Housing: the PLC2 and the front of the housing are removed from the body of the housing, and flush mounted in the dash; rotary knob extends approximately 5/8" from the dash
  • Panel Install without Front Housing: the housing is completely removed and just the rotary knob's shaft is mounted through the dash; in this case the external LED is mounted separately

Rockford Fosgate PLC2 Amp Remote Control

Written By Ed, LA on Thursday, July 31, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased to use with a new RF 1000X5 amp. Outside of a pretty blue light I can find no functionality for it. The adjustment from min to max do nothing. The light did show clipping during set up by turning red as stated. But that's about all. Maybe there is a problem with the PLC2 or the amp which has been nothing but a problem since I purchased it.

Pros: Pretty light

Cons: Does nothing

Rockford Fosgate PLC2 Amp Remote Control

Written By Britt, Henrico Va on Thursday, August 29, 2013

The Rockford Fosgate PLC2 Amp Remote Control is a must have addition to a compatable Rockford Fosgate amplifier. Easy to install, makes changing power level very convenient and has a LED to notify you if the signal is clean or clipping. I listen to all sorts of music and without this device I would need to spend time adjusting sound levels through my receiver or make manual adjustments at my Rockford Fosgate amplifier. If you purchase a Rockford Fosgate amplifier you should purchase one of these!!

Pros: Easy to install, makes changing power level very convenient and has a LED to notify you if the signal is clean or clipping.

Cons: Not crazy about mounting bracket. I do not use the supplied bracket

I can only repeat what I stated in my review of this product. I installed it with the RF 1000X5 several months ago. For whatever reason it has minimal effect on the output of the amp. If you really focus on the sound while turning the control you can hear a very little raise and lower of the volume min to max. Nothing else. Also, using the PLC-2 to make adjustments (per instructions) resulted in terrible sound and did not work at all with bass adjustment. I went back to the adjustments made by ear. Finally, I would have sent it back for credit but had to punch a hole in the face plate to install and the light is pretty. From my experience I find this piece of equipment useless with the 1000X5.

The newest one out should work .. They want you to buy new products so old style will not work on newer amps .. [ James  Dec 08, 2014 ]
It will work on any of the new series amps . I add's extra hard bass at the spin if the dial when you need to impress or just want to feel more power then normal. I've got the new amp with the light controls on the amp it will interface with the light controls so you don't have to look at the amp when pushing too much power for too long. So it won't blow your amp. Cost a lot to keep replacing equipment . [ DAVID W  Dec 07, 2014 ]
I would assume so, however, I just recently installed it in my truck and am getting no response from the amp. I will be checking with Crutchfield support to see what the problem is. [ JOSHUA C  Dec 07, 2014 ]
