Our take on the Rockford Fosgate RFXMR6

by Ken Nail
Rockford Fosgate

Use the RFXMR6 wired remote to control the Rockford Fosgate RFX3000 or RFX9700CD marine receivers. The large buttons make it easy to access receiver functions.The remote controls all basic functions of your Rockford Fosgate receiver, including power, source, volume, track up/down, and mute.

Important Note: This remote's attached cable is only a foot long so, in most cases, you'll need an extension cable to install it.

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.


Compatibility: The RFXMR6 is a wired marine remote control that it is compatible with select Rockford Fosgate marine head units (RFX9700CD & RFX3000).

Backlit Controls: The RFXMR6 has backlit rubber buttons with the following functions:

  • Power
  • Mode (source)
  • Band
  • Select (audio control)
  • Play/Pause
  • Volume Up/Down
  • Next/Previous Track

Wiring: The attached 12" cable on the RFXMR6 connects to the head unit's proprietary 8-pin remote port. Because the attached cable is only a foot long, in most cases an extension cable will be needed (575RFX16, sold separately).

Durable: The RFXMR6 meets ASTM B117 salt/fog exposure and ASTM D4329 UV exposure standards.

Flush Mount: The remote comes with an aluminum flush mount C-clamp. The clamp attaches to the two M4 machine screw studs on the back of the remote and holds it in place.

Remote Dimensions:

  • Diameter: 2.505"
  • Cutout Diameter: 2.165"
  • Mounting Depth: 1.5"
  • Mounting Height: 0.5625"

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Very easy to install. Worked as advertised, but......
I installed 2 remotes in my boat. 1 at the stern and 1 at the drivers helm. The one at the stern works great and eliminates the need to get up in the boat to operate the stereo.
The one i installed at the drivers helm shorted out and actually melted the wires at the back of the remote. So will need to purchase a new one.
