Element Ready

Rockford’s PMX moto- marine series of head units and remotes are fully tested against UV radiation degradation as well as tested to IPX water intrusion standards. We also fully test the stereo units for ever changing environmental conditions that you may experience on the boat or out in the dunes such as temperature extremes, as well as vibration testing to make sure they can take a bump and keep performing like a Rockord product should.

Dust:We make sure that our moto- marine stereo displays and motor structures are sealed up tight so they look as clear as possible and perform day in and day out no matter how many times you hit the trails.

UV Inhibitor Materials:Centrex and ASA plastic materials are used for their UV radiation resistance and components are tested in accordance with ASTM D4329 testing and certification procedures.

Thermal Shock Tested:Stereo products are tested for extreme temperature operation as well as severe fluctuations in ambient temperature. Receiver components are taken to both low and high temperature extremes and then tested to ensure operational capabilities.

Stainless Hardware:Stainless hardware is used due to its natural resistance to corrosion and rusting. This ensures that electrical connections will not degrade over time due to exposure to the ocean, sand, fog and other elements.

Water Tested:IPX5 and IPX6 Ratings allow for the stereo components to be directly sprayed with water without water incursion to your head unit.

Corrosion Protection (Speakers):Components are tested for salt spray corrosion resistance and conform to ASTM B117 certification.

Vibration:Knowing our stereos will not be sitting still, we subject them to full vibration and shock testing to ensure that it will take abuse and keep performing to our stringent standards.
