About the JL Audio M-RBC-1

Ken Nail

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.

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.

Q
Do I need this if I am running a MM105 head unit?

A
This JL Audio M-RBC-1 Remote level control is use with JL Audio HX and MHX-Series amps only, Sonny. This remote level knob cannot function with the MediaMaster 105. If you would like remote control capability in a separate location on deck you can use the JL Audio MMR-20-BE in the first link below. This remote connects to the MediaMaster 105 with the 6-foot cable in the second link below. You can also select a 25-foot cable option if you need more length. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_13699921/JL-Audio-MMR-20-BE-Black.html https://www.crutchfield.com/p_13699914/JL-Audio-MMC-6-6-feet.html

Greetings Julian, and thank you for your question. The M-RBC-1 is the marine version of the correct remote level control. You can also use the RBC-1 if the amplifier of controller will not see any moisture.

This level controller can work on a lot of their Powered PowerWedge+ models and recommend contacting an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to check the powered sub you are hoping to use it on.
