Our take on the Rockford Fosgate RFXMR7

by Ken Nail
Rockford Fosgate

Use the RFXMR7 to control the Rockford Fosgate RFX3000 or RFX9700CD marine receivers. This waterproof wired remote control has backlit capacitive touch-panel buttons and an LCD display that's easy to see in bright sunlight. 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.

We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.


Compatibility: The RFXMR7 is a wired marine remote control with an LCD display and capacitive touch-panel buttons that it is compatible with select Rockford Fosgate marine head units (RFX9700CD & RFX3000).

LCD Display: The display briefly shows the volume when it's changed, and can be set to show the time of day or source information; chapter/track, elapsed time, song title (for iPod and CDs with CD Text), band (AM/FM), frequency, and preset number.

Backlit Controls: The RFXMR7 has backlit capacitive touch-panel buttons with the following functions:

  • Power
  • Mode (source)
  • Volume Up/Down
  • Next/Previous Track
  • Mute

Wiring: The attached 12" cable on the RFXMR7 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 RFXMR7 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: 3.535"
  • Cutout Diameter: 2.985"
  • Mounting Depth: 2.125"
  • Mounting Height: 0.5"

Rfmx7. Too sensitive

Written By Jdg, Dallas, TX on Saturday, April 07, 2012
Had to disconnect. It was located on the back of the boat and anytime someone walked by it or put a towel on it, it would change mode, vol, track or something. Would not recommend in high traffic areas.
Looks good
Not useable where incidental contact can occur

There is a copper pin on the back of this remote. Is that to ground it, or for anything? [ Tom  Jan 31, 2014 ]
