Our take on the Rockford Fosgate RFX9210G

Rockford Fosgate

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

You spend a lot of time in your car, so why pick an in-dash receiver that gives you a hard time? Rockford Fosgate designed the state-of-the-art RFX9210G CD/MP3 receiver for ease of use — its user-friendly, retro-styled control panel (with rotary knob and multi-function buttons) gives you instant access to a wide variety of powerful features.

The RFX9210G will play prerecorded CDs and finalized audio CD-Rs/CD-RWs, and has built-in controls for Rockford Fosgate's 8-disc CD changer. If you download 'Net music, this receiver will also play MP3-encoded CD-Rs/CD-RWs — you can name your folders and files, and navigate through them just as you would on your PC.

You can also name up to 100 discs and radio stations, using up to 10 characters. And the auxiliary input allows you to hook up an external source, like a MiniDisc portable, DVD player, video game, or even a satellite radio tuner!

The preamp section won't clip even with the volume control pegged, so your outboard amps always get a clean signal from the three sets of low-impedance 5-volt preamp outputs. The sub output features an independent level control and a built-in 80 Hz low-pass crossover. The copper-plated chassis (a feature usually found in top-of-the-line competition head units) shields the receiver from noise generated by your car's electrical system. A wireless remote control is included.
