Our take on the Rockford Fosgate RFX9210G

You spend a lot of time in your car, so why pick an in-dash receiver that gives you a hard time? Rockford Fosgate designed the state-of-the-art RFX9210G CD/MP3 receiver for ease of use — its user-friendly, retro-styled control panel (with rotary knob and multi-function buttons) gives you instant access to a wide variety of powerful features.

You spend a lot of time in your car, so why pick an in-dash receiver that gives you a hard time? Rockford Fosgate designed the state-of-the-art RFX9210G CD/MP3 receiver for ease of use — its user-friendly, retro-styled control panel (with rotary knob and multi-function buttons) gives you instant access to a wide variety of powerful features.

The RFX9210G will play prerecorded CDs and finalized audio CD-Rs/CD-RWs, and has built-in controls for Rockford Fosgate's 8-disc CD changer. If you download 'Net music, this receiver will also play MP3-encoded CD-Rs/CD-RWs — you can name your folders and files, and navigate through them just as you would on your PC.

You can also name up to 100 discs and radio stations, using up to 10 characters. And the auxiliary input allows you to hook up an external source, like a MiniDisc portable, DVD player, video game, or even a satellite radio tuner!

The preamp section won't clip even with the volume control pegged, so your outboard amps always get a clean signal from the three sets of low-impedance 5-volt preamp outputs. The sub output features an independent level control and a built-in 80 Hz low-pass crossover. The copper-plated chassis (a feature usually found in top-of-the-line competition head units) shields the receiver from noise generated by your car's electrical system. A wireless remote control is included.

Summed Preamp Outputs: In addition to the front and rear preamp outputs, this unit has a set of summed preamp outputs. The summed outputs provide a summed left-plus-right mono output through two female RCA connections. The summed output is meant for connecting a subwoofer amplifier.

Just connect your portable cassette, MD or MP3 player to this unit, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the speakers in your mobile audio system. The Aux input level is adjustable and can be set to -6, 0, or +6. The jacks are located on the 10" long preamp input and output wiring harness, which connects to the back of the unit.
