Rockford Fosgate (, the industry leader in high-performance audio systems, is proud to announce that the PMX-2 and PMX-5 Element-Ready moto-marine source units are now shipping.

“We designed both the PMX-5 and compact PMX-2 digital media receivers to be the ideal choices when selecting a source unit for just about any marine or motorsports application,” said Jake Braaten, Rockford’s V.P. of Product Development & Engineering. “Each unit features a 2.7-inch full color TFT display for optimum viewing - even in full sun - that is optically wet bonded to prevent any dust or moisture penetration. Both units faceplates are IPX6-rated and use a water resistant rotary encoder knob with white LED button illumination and front mounted sub level controls. Perfect for sand or surf, the PMX-2 and PMX-5 are the true command centers of any system.”

Output flexibility for both units come with a 4 x 50W (2 ohm) internal amplifier for direct speaker connection or front and rear/sub output RCA’s on the PMX-2 and dual zone output RCA’s on the PMX-5 allowing the addition of after-market amplifiers for more power and output. Both also feature an EEPROM memory system which retains settings even when power is removed, a custom, user-focused GUI interface, and expansion capabilities for up to three additional wired remotes such as the Rockford Fosgate PMX-1R.

The compact PMX-2 (MSRP: $299.99) comes in at just 4.5in W x 4.2in H x 2.9in D and features Pandora control capabilities, Bluetooth audio steaming with album art support for Apple and Android products, and iPod playback with on-screen display.

The PMX-5 (MSRP: $399.99) (8in W x 3.5in H x 7.1in D) features SiriusXM and Pandora capabilities, Bluetooth audio steaming with album art support for Apple and Android products, True 2 Zone/2 Source control and a steering wheel control interface. Additionally, the PMX-5 features expanded connectivity with our PMX-CAN CAN-BUS interface. This allows the unit to interface with on-board multi-function displays for control of the unit through the boats main screen.

Additional specifications for both the PMX-2 & PMX-5 include:
• FCC, CE, IC, and C-Tick certified
• Multi-region radio frequencies
