Rockford Fosgate (, the industry leader in high-performance audio systems, will feature the new PMX-CAN multi-function display interface module for the Element-Ready moto-marine PMX-8BB hideaway digital media receiver during its Annual Product Showcase, held at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (Artist Ballroom) in Las Vegas, Nev. from Jan. 6-8, 2016. The PMX-CAN is scheduled to ship Q1with an MSRP of $199.99

“Larger marine entertainment systems are often centered around a multi-function display (MFD) unit using software configured using the NMEA2K standards,” explained Jake Braaten, Rockford’s V.P. of Product Development & Engineering. “The PMX-CAN interface allows interconnection between our PMX-8BB marine source unit and a Multi-Function Display (MFD) system using this entertainment standard. This interface allows the user to control basic functions of the source unit directly from the MFD such as play, pause, track up/down, and source change as well as more advance functions and source specific options.”

The PMX-CAN translates commands from the MFD system into something the PMX-8BB understands allowing the user to control the unit remotely while getting direct informational feedback regarding the audio selection and source. “The interface allows control of both basic and advanced radio functions such as power, volume, and source selection as well as source specific functions for the radio, including Bluetooth, Pandora, SiriusXM, and USB inputs,” Braaten added. “This allows the user to make changes and adjustment to the audio system without having to go to the source unit itself.”

Additional features of the PMX-CAN include Source Selection, Master/ Subwoofer/ Zone Volume Control, Zone Source/ Rename Control, Balance/ Fade, EQ Preset Selection, F/R/S Crossover Filter Frequency Selection, IPX4 Rated, ASTM B117 & D4329 Tested (500 Hours), Mini DIN Input Connector, NMEA 2000 (DeviceNet Micro C) Output Connector, and Included Mounting Hardware.
