Clients near Abbotsford, Maple Ridge and Chilliwack that are looking for a premium source unit for their boat or ATV should drop by one our Certified Autosound and Security locations to check out the Rockford Fosgate PMX-8BB and PMX-8DH receiver system. The PMX-8BB is a black-box style digital media receiver. It pairs beautifully with the PMX-8DH remote control. Let’s look at the features of this unique entertainment solution.
Rockford Fosgate PMX-8BB Features
The PMX-8BB is an 8.3 by 4.25-inch black box receiver with an AM/FM tuner and NOAA weather band support. The system includes two USB ports for playback of MP3, WMA or FLAC file or direct compatibility with Apple iPod and iPhone devices. A Bluetooth 3.0 receiver with EDR allows you to stream music from any A2DP compatible device.
The PMX8BB includes support for SiriusXM satellite radio and includes two stereo auxiliary inputs. A composite video connection on the PMX-8DH screen can be used to display an image from a backup camera.
PMX-8DH Control Features
The PMX-8DH is a compact controller designed specifically for use with the PMX-8BB system. The controller features a 5-inch optically bonded display that provides visible information even in direct sunlight. The color display makes it easy to pick the music you want and navigate the various menus of the system. A rotary volume control and backlit buttons makes the system easy to use, even in the dark.
The controller features an IPX6 water intrusion rating so that it can handle getting rained on or being washed down with a hose. To ensure long-term longevity, the controller is constructed with UV and corrosion-resistant materials.
Signal Processing Features
The Rockford Fosgate PMX-8BB includes a seven-band parametric equalizer, adjustable high- and low-pass crossovers and Rockford’s Punch EQ circuitry. This can help add a little more boom and sizzle to your system. The preamp outputs are rated to provide up to 4 Volts of signal, and the internal amplifier can produce an impressive 25 watts per channel rated using the CTA2006 specification.
Integration Connectivity Features
A steering wheel interface control port allows us to use the PMX-8BB with Maestro SW (or similar) interface. Rockford also includes a CAN interface port for use with several different marine multifunction devices. We can add up to 3 wired remote controls to provide easy access to the system on larger boats.
