Multi-zone convenience, plus a color screen

This PMX-1R wired marine remote gives you convenience and control, plus a rich color screen. Designed to work with Rockford Fosgate PMX-5 and PMX-8BB marine receivers, this multi-zone remote lets you control your music from wherever you are on the boat.

Album art looks terrific on the 2.7" full-color screen, so it's easy for you and your crew to find just the right music without squinting down into a tiny LED display. The remote's face is IPX6-certified for water resistance, so you won't need to worry in bad weather or choppy conditions. The backlit LED buttons make the PMX-1R easy to use, day or night.

In most cases, you will need a Rockford Fosgate extension cable (sold separately). They're available in various lengths to suit your boat.

More details on the Rockford Fosgate PMX-1R

Product Research


Compatibility: The PMX-1R is a marine certified wired remote controller for Rockford Fosgate's PMX-8BB, PMX-5 or PMX-2 marine receivers (sold separately). In most cases you will need one of Rockford Fosgate's extension cables (sold separately). Up to 3 remotes can be added to one marine receiver using PMXYC Y-cable (sold separately).

Marine Certified: Rockford Fosgate's PMX series marine remote has been fully tested against UV radiation degradation as well as tested to IPX water intrusion standards. It is also fully tested for ever changing environmental conditions such as temperature extremes, as well as vibration testing to make sure it can take a bump and keep performing. The PMX-1R is protected against Dust, UV, Temperature, Water, Corrosion & Vibration.

  • Dust: The unit's display & motor structure is sealed up tight to protect it against dirt, dust, and grime.
  • UV Inhibitor Materials: Centrex and ASA plastic materials are used for UV radiation resistance and components are tested in accordance with ASTM D4329 testing and certification procedures.
  • Thermal Shock Tested: Tested for extreme temperature operation as well as severe fluctuations in ambient temperature. Components are taken to both low and high temperature extremes and then tested to ensure operational capabilities.
  • Water Tested: IPX6 Ratings allow for the components to be directly sprayed with water without water incursion.
  • Corrosion Protection: Two part epoxy coated PCB boards prevent corrosion of critical components due to exposure in moisture rich environments.
  • Vibration: Subjected to full vibration and shock testing to ensure that it will take abuse and keep performing to our stringent standards.

Applications: The PMX-1R is designed for marine and motorsports systems.

Optically Bonded LCD: The Rockford Fosgate PMX-1R features a 2.7" TFT color LCD for optimum viewing, even in full sun, that is optically wet bonded to prevent any dust or moisture penetration. There are two brightness settings for the LCD screen.

Water Resistant Controls: The PMX-1R uses a water resistant rotary encoder knob, along with push-button controls that feature backlit LED illumination. Control functions include:

  • Rotary Knob: This knob is for adjusting main volume, zone volumes, menu navigation, and setting adjustments.
  • Power/Source Button: This button powers the unit On or Off. It is also used to switch between sources.
  • Play/Pause: This button is used to start or pause playback.
  • Seek Buttons: Use these buttons to fast forward/rewind through a track or to skip to a previous/next track.
  • Menu Button: This button give you access to the main settings of the unit and active source.
  • SUB Buttons: These two buttons allow you to adjust the sub out up or down from 0-20.
  • Brightness Button: Select between two brightness settings.

Mounting Options: The marine wired remote control requires a 3" round cutout in the bulkhead (fits standard 3" gauge openings). Four machine screws and mounting bracket fasten the unit against the mounting surface, and hold the waterproof gasket and metal plate against the bulkhead. The included trim-ring hides the mounting screws for a neat installation.

Dimensions: The marine remote has the following dimensions:

  • Chassis:
    • Diameter: 3"
    • Depth: 4.25"
  • Nose:
    • Width: 4.575"
    • Height: 4.205"
    • Depth: 1.25"
  • Trim Ring:
    • Width: 4.455"
    • Height: 4.095"
    • Depth: 0.675"
  • Screw Hole Pattern: The wired remote has two mounting holes across the top of the face-plate, and two holes on the bottom of the faceplate for securing the unit to the bulkhead.
    • Width (Top & Bottom): 4.035"
    • Height (Between Top and Bottom Row): 3.505
    • Screw Mounting Depth: 0.75"

Is this powerd or do you need a amp?
tim  May 07, 2023
1 answer
The Rockford Fosgate PMX-1R is a wired marine remote for use with compatible Rockford Fosgate radios, Tim. This has no functionality unless it is connected to a radio like the Rockford Fosgate PMX-2 in the link below. The PMX-2 does have a built-in amplifier with 25-watts RMS x4, and you can also connect more powerful amplifiers to the PMX-2 if you need!

Will it fit 1997 Honda gold wing 1500 SE?
barry  May 21, 2021
1 answer
We have not been able to research the Honda Goldwing motorcycles and we have not found a kit made specifically to install one of these into a Goldwing. We are not able to confirm fitment of it and recommend checking with a custom installer
jason  Jun 05, 2021 (Staff)
Will this work on a Goldwing GL1500 ?
james  May 20, 2021

You could probably make it work. But this is the remote. You will need the pmx-2 or pmx-3 for this to work

Will this fit in can am maverick trail?
terrance  May 05, 2021
1 answer
We have not researched a Trail version to know and Rockford Fosgate does not list the Maverick Trail as an option that they offer gear to install into. We are not able to check or help with the installation of this into a Maverick Trail

Will this fit the wire harness that's already in a polaris slingshot?

We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question.

Does it come with speakers?
scott  Apr 14, 2021

No Sir it does not come with speakers.
tommy  Apr 27, 2021
No, it is a wired remote that needs to be connected to a Rockford Fosgate receiver. I have my PMX-1R connected to a Rockford Fosgate PMX-3 marine receiver. The PMX-1R gives me another set of receiver controls in the bow of my boat.
tim  Apr 26, 2021
doug  Apr 26, 2021
No it doesn't

No it doesn't

Bought the pmx3 head unit. Will the pmx 1-R remote work with it?
jason  Mar 18, 2021
1 answer
Yes, I have both the PMX3 and PMX-1 remote both installed in my boat. They work flawlessly together.

Would this receiver fit a Kawasaki KRX 1000?
a.j.  Jan 14, 2021
1 answer
At the time of this post, we do not carry any parts to help install this, or any other, receiver into your UTV. This may change in the future and I recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to check current options.
jason  Jan 30, 2021 (Staff)
Will this work with the Probox PG2F4-1000 UTV roof? It has bluetooth capability and a 3.5mm aux port.
timothy  Dec 05, 2020
1 answer
No this is just a remote, they make a full blown radio in the same form factor that it would work with.
peter  Dec 05, 2020
Does the PMX-1R have an available cover for the unit? I have a new boat and there are multiple controllers but cannot seem to source any of the head covers. Thanks in advance for the help. Scott
scott  Oct 10, 2020

I agree with Scott C's response exactly. Mine is exposed in the bow of my boat and it looks brand new. Mine is a year old. I also agree with the daytime illumination comment and the preset comment.
tim  Mar 18, 2021
Scott, I installed this in my boat this spring and there is no cover. It is made to be able to sit out in the open. Mine is in an exposed location and often get splashed on or wet. It still looks brand new. The display is very easy to read. One feature I like is the day/night illumination. I am very happy with this, the only nitpick is that the station presets take a couple of keystrokes to access, but I would buy it all over again.
tim  Oct 29, 2020
I have not been able to find one and there is no official cover offered by RF.
peter  Oct 29, 2020
That I know of it doesn't have a cover but the jl audio unit does
doug  Oct 29, 2020
will this work with the Rockford Fosgate RFX5000?
randy  Sep 28, 2018

Sorry, no. It's made for use with the PMX-8BB, PMX-5 or PMX-2 marine receivers.
ryan  Oct 03, 2018 (Staff)

How many amplifier outputs are there?
brandon  Nov 15, 2016
1 answer
I purchase the Rockford PMX5 stereo receiver w/ the PMX-1 helm controller. My boat has 6 speakers topside and 2 in the cabin. I also added a JL 6 channel marine amp. The main deck has a small built in amp that powers 2 cabin speakers, JL 6 channel amp powers topside speakers.
