About the JL Audio M-RBC-1

Wired remote built for rough conditions

This M-RBC-1 wired remote controls the output level of JL Audio's HX-Series and MHX-Series amps — amps designed for powersport and marine applications that need a wired remote built for rough conditions. The remote's cable incorporates waterproof gaskets to keep the electrical connections dry, so you can mount the M-RBC-1 controller in the front of your vehicle or boat, then dial in the amount of bass you want from the driver's seat — mounting instructions, hardware, and an 18-foot cable are included.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The JL Audio M-RBC-1 Water-Resistant Wired Remote Bass Controller is designed to remotely control the level of compatible JL Audio marine amplifiers equipped with a "Remote Bass" port. The RJ-14 connector at the end of the 16.5' cable has a water-resistant connection with a rubber cover. It can be mounted to surfaces no more than 1/8" thick. With an IPX-6 rating, the M-RBC-1 is splash-proof, however, it is not submersible. The M-RBC-1 comes with a black ABS plastic knob. A satin-finish aluminum knob can be purchased from the manufacturer, if desired.

Compatibility: The JL Audio M-RBC-1 is compatible with the following JL Audio marine amplifiers: HX300/1 and MHX300/1, controlling the Bass level when in Low-Pass mode. These amps have a female RJ-14 jack with a water-resistant cover like the remote cable, making the connection highly resistant to moisture. The M-RBC-1 can also be used in other amplifiers where the RBC-1 Remote Level Control is used:

  • JX-Series (controls the Bass Level): JX250/1, JX500/1, JX500/1D, JX1000/1D
  • Slash v3 Series: 600/1v3, 1200/1v3

Awesome advice from a crutchfield rep!!! [ michael  Mar 18, 2018 ]
A
Size. Fits under my rear seat. [ Sean  Mar 01, 2018 ]
A
I would like to be able to control specifically the bass amounts very quickly without having to mess with equalizer settings on the deck. This should allow me to change the bass with a turn of a dial. [ John Ian  Nov 18, 2017 ]
A
Easy to use [ EUDY  Oct 23, 2017 ]
A
A great way to control a sub while at the helm of my boat... [ Shane  May 11, 2017 ]
A
I have a factory head unit with no pre amp outputs (obviously), and the ability to attenuate the sub woofer to the circumstances is important. Most of the time I want the bass to compliment instead overpower the music. I also need to be able to turn the gain up or down depending upon who is riding with me. Common sense buy. You won't regret it. [ Justin  Apr 11, 2017 ]
A
Figured it was better to spend the money now and install it initially than to regret it and have to add it later and do double work. [ Ryan  Mar 13, 2017 ]
A
This is a must for running a subwoofer in the boat. You can turn down the bass when needed instantly without going thru all the menus on the head unit. [ joshua  Mar 07, 2017 ]
A
To easily adjust sub from front seat. [ Brian  Jan 01, 2017 ]
A
To control the subwoofer volume. [ Christopher  Dec 26, 2016 ]
A
I enjoy having bass when the mood is good or just up for feeling the music with full sound. However, that may be too much for certain folks. This remote decibel knob will allow me to adjust the amplifier output while sitting in the driver's seat. Fortunately, there is a nice place in the center console that will allow me to install this knob and it will appear to be a factory option. Factory appearance, custom performance, that's what I enjoy. [ Joshua  Nov 14, 2016 ]
A
Based on the reputation of JL and others reviews I chose to try this sub. [ Jeffrey  Nov 14, 2016 ]
A
Read some reviews [ John  Jul 15, 2016 ]
