Our take on the Rockford Fosgate RFXMR5BB

by Ken Nail
Rockford Fosgate

You'll need this RFXMR5BB wired remote to control Rockford Fosgate's RFX3000 marine receiver. The large buttons make it easy to access receiver functions, while the remote's 3-line LCD screen lets you keep tabs on the source and music you're listening to. The remote controls all functions of your Rockford Fosgate receiver, including power, source select, volume, track up/down, radio presets, and mute.

Important Note: This remote's attached cable is 6-1/2 feet long so, in some cases, you'll need an extension cable to install it.

Rockford Fosgate RFXMR5BB

Written By Ric Marshall, Clarksville, TN on Monday, January 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I love it! I mounted the display in the wooden(homemade) console of my 1968 Firebird with the radio hid away from sight. I did not like the idea of losing my glove box to mount a radio in and how can I control the radio in the glove box from the drivers seat. This radio and remote set up made it easy and effective for my use.
