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.

I ordered this with my Rockford Fosgate P300X1. I was able to remove the plastic housing and install it on on control panel. This is a must have with any Rockford Fosgate amp!
Pros: Ability to turn down down the bass when needed.
Like the product like being able to tire down the bass
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Clip light did not work
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
Works great :)
Did not install product just yet but I know I won't be disapppinted. Crutchfield is number one in my books
Pros: Great product great service
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
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:

Zac was my advisor and helped me to find a product I could control my amp with. Zac's Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=142 [ Nolan Jul 05, 2016 ]
To be able to control the amp from a simple control knob and continue driving down the road bumpin tunes effortlessly [ Zachary Jan 13, 2016 ]
I Would imagine so. Mine actually did not work, I believe my cable was bad. I just haven't taken the time to pull the wire back out and send it in for a replacement. [ JOSHUA C May 29, 2016 ]
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 .. [ jimmy 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 ]
