View Full Version : Rockford HU are Crap?

11-09-2011, 05:51 PM
I have had a few rf cd players and never wanted another but they come cheap sometimes. Well this one has worked fine but I came out to the truck last week and it wont turn on. I took it out after checking the fuses and what not and hooked it up straight to a battery no go nothing. Anyone know if this has internal fuse or something? Or should I just toss it and move on. Thanks Here is a picture I kinda opened it up didn't see anything that didn't look right.

Its becuase its 10yr old thats it worth anything lol

It might not be super collectable, but it is kinda odd/rare. I'm a big fan of odd/rare stuff, even SoundStream head units. :)

fosgate headunits were great.

It did have 3 preamp outputs 5v front rear and sub. Gonna miss that but other than that it never read mp3s like it says it does. It maybe will read a couple songs out of 100. Sometimes it used to overheat and shut off although it hasn't done that in a while. Ill give them a call tomorrow see what they say. Dug up the box. Box says rfx 9300. Face says rfx 9400. :wow:

If you don't have it fixed, trade it to LA_CRX, he will put it to good use. :)

give rockford a call, they will have at least some info on it. But the older RF headunits were like rich b said a Denon unit in disguise, that being saidthey were some of the best SQ heads going.

Yea hit up RF, they are really helpful, for the most part.
Some of their decks used to be great. If this one worked, I would probably pick it up. I deff wouldnt toss it, give it to one of us. Haha.

And yes, the Denon decks in disguise were incredible. 100% no clipping.
