Weather Band: The Rockford Fosgate PMX-2 is also equipped with a built-in weather band tuner. Select from weather band frequencies between 162.40 to 162.55.
MOSFET Amplifier: The PMX-2 is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit.
Note: The power specifications for the marine receiver are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.
4V/4Ch Preouts: The Rockford Fosgate PMX-2 is equipped with two pair of 4-volt preamp outputs (Front & Rear/Sub). You can configure the Rear/Sub pre-out for rear speakers with fading capability or as a non-fading sub output. You can turn off the unit's internal amplifier, you plan on using only external amps.
Equalizer: The PMX-2 is equipped with a variety of EQ presets, and 7-Band EQ, and Rockford Fosgate's Punch EQ.
High-Pass & Low-Pass Crossovers: The PMX-2 provides a high-pass crossover for the front & rear channels which can be set to 60Hz, 80Hz, 120Hz, or Full-Range. The unit also provides a low-pass crossover for the subwoofer output that can be set to 60Hz, 80Hz, 120Hz, or Full-Range.
Sub Control: When the sub out is activated, you can independently adjust its volume level from 0 to 40.
Source Gain: You can adjust the gain of each source so they all play at the same volume level. Select between -3dB, -2dB, -1dB, 0dB, +1dB, +2dB, or +3dB for each source.
Key Beep: A beep tone will sound with any press of a button on the receiver. This can be turned on or off.
4-Channel Amplifier: The Rockford Fosgate Power T400X4ad is an ultra-compact four-channel amplifier. Even though the amplifier is only 8-5/8" x 4-1/4", it puts out a full 100 watts per channel at 4 ohms or 2 ohms. In bridged mono, the output is 400 watts at 4 ohms.
Class AD: The amplifier features Rockford Fosgate's proprietary Class AD technology, which allows the amp to produce more power with less current draw. It takes the highly efficient bd amplifier design to a full-range application. Class AD uses Dynamic Frequency Switching to increase the switching frequency during lower output levels for better signal resolution. In addition, Post Choke Feedback Filtering removes unwanted distortion by comparing the input signal to the output signal at the speaker connector.
Constant Power: Rockford Fosgate uses a patented circuit design to gain up to 25% more output power. Constant Power actively increases the voltage and current in direct relationship to the rise and fall of music signals to provide additional power.
Fan Cooled: The T400X4ad features dual fans to keep the amp running cool. Dual Fan Forced Induction pulls in fresh air, which pulls heat off of the MOSFETs, and directs airflow into the exhaust channel and out of the amplifier. Since the top and bottom heat sinks are decoupled, the top remains cool to the touch. When installing, you should leave at least 2-3" of clearance around the ends of the amplifier to optimize air flow to the fan intake and exhaust vents.
C.L.E.A.N. Technology: Using Rockford's C.L.E.A.N. (Calibrated Level Eliminates Audible Noise) technology, you can easily and precisely set up the amplifier levels to eliminate distortion from damaging your speakers. Simple LED indicators are used, instead of test equipment, to identify signal clipping at both the input and output, and to match the audio source to the amplifier.
Top Mounted Controls: The T400X4ad features easy-to-reach controls on the top panel of the amplifier. There are two sets of controls: one for the front channels and another for the rear channels. The controls include:
LED Indicators: The amplifier has three LED indicators on its top panel:
Connections: The T400X4ad's audio inputs are located on the left side of the amplifier, while the power/remote and speaker terminals are on the right side of the amplifier.
Amp Wire Kit: The included RFYXZ-K8 amplifier kit consists of a wiring harness, mounting bracket, mounting screws, and wire-ties. The included wiring harness plugs directly into the T400X4ad, plus the speaker harnesses included with the front lower speaker enclosures and subwoofer enclosure. The wiring harnesses' power (red) & ground (black) wires are terminated with a ring terminal and will need to be connected to the Yamaha YXZ ATV's battery. There is an inline fuse holder and a pre-installed 60A Maxi-fuse on the power wire. The Rockford Fosgate T400X4ad amplifier attaches to the included mounting bracket. The mounting bracket then bolts directly to the Yamaha YXZ ATV's factory mounting holes (no drilling required).
Marine Rated Speakers: The Rockford Fosgate RM1652 marine rated speakers utilize 1" dome tweeters that are made of LCP (liquid crystal polymer), a high strength/light weight material, die cast into a volcano design. The tweeters are bridge mounted, useful in a marine speaker because no opening through the middle of the woofer for the mounting post is needed. The woofer cones are injection molded, mineral filled polypropylene with UV inhibitors. This molding process assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.
Note: Rockford Fosgate uses industry standard tests (ASTM B117 salt/fog and ASTM D4329 sunlight, moisture, and heat) to ensure the RM1652 speakers will provide optimum performance in the difficult marine environment. The mounting hardware is stainless steel to resist corrosion.
- ICC Crossover: The ICC (Integrated Concealed Crossover) simplifies installation and protects the crossover by concealing it inside the basket, creating a cleaner look and easier installation. The crossover is 6 dB/octave high pass.
- Infinite-Baffle Operation: The speakers are designed for infinite-baffle operation and can be installed in a variety of locations, without the need for a dedicated enclosure.
- VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.
- Klippel Verified: The Klippel distortion analyzer, a device that uses a laser and sophisticated software to do large-scale analysis of drivers in motion, lets Rockford Fosgate optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the best possible performance.
Front Lower Speaker Enclosure: The two compression molded fiberglass reinforced polymer speaker enclosures with UV resistant finish are optimized for the two included Rockford Fosgate RM1652 Marine speaker and mount perfectly in a compatible Yamaha YXZ model ATV. They are designed to match the Yamaha YXZ ATV's texture and color, plus mount in factory locations with minimal disassembly and drilling. Two speaker harnesses connect between the RM1652 speakers and the included Amp wire kit's harness which plugs directly into the T400X4ad amplifier.
Marine 10" Dual 2-Ohm Woofer: The RM110D2B is a black 10", dual 2-ohm Prime R1 subwoofer rated at 200W RMS/400W Peak that has been designed for marine watercraft or powersports applications. It features color matched grille and is UV and moisture resistant. The woofer is fitted with spring-post speaker terminals.
Subwoofer Enclosure: The compression molded fiberglass reinforced polymer subwoofer enclosure with UV resistant finish is optimized for the included Rockford Fosgate RM110D2B 10" woofer and mounts perfectly in a compatible Yamaha YXZ model ATV. The enclosure is designed to match the Yamaha YXZ ATV's texture and color, plus mount in factory locations with minimal disassembly, modification, and drilling. The enclosure bolts in directly to factory mounting holes and offers a stealth install once mounted and body panels are replaced. A subwoofer harness connects between the RM110D2B 10" woofer and the included Amp wire kit's harness which plugs directly into the T400X4ad amplifier.
Marine Tested: Rockford Fosgate uses industry standard tests (ASTM B117 salt/fog and ASTM D4329 sunlight, moisture, and heat) to ensure theses speakers will provide optimum performance in the difficult marine environment.
