    That info from Rockford's website is interesting. The Flex41 amp has an Ethernet and a USB port. They explain the purpose of the USB port at the link Eggman posted.

    Looking at this picture I found of a Flex41 amp, the Ethernet port does appear to be for a remote bass control. But I would call their tech support and verify that before buying a control.

    I stole the photo from eBay lol, I was too lazy to take any photos of my own during install. But if you or anyone is having any problems installing any accessories, let me know because chances are I've installed them on mine haha.

    I have personally never had any sort of sub in any of my previous cars, so this was all new to me with the bass controller and such.

    Hey djulie1 Sorry I have no experience with this install but I would like to know the outcome. Hopefully someone here can help out.

    Any chance you can post some pictures of the harness & the radio unit? It might help someone here identify a solution.

    IGGYPOOPER helped me tremendously ..such a good dude called me and showed me what I was doing wrong in just a few minutes ..Now its in and has every option i know of ..He was a huge help. Plus hes friends with one of my friends here in WV..He will have dinner on me next time hes in WV . Its really worth it ..looks all professional ..There is an upgraded file for touch screen cars per ROCKFORD FOSGATE TECH..I have the file and the are gonna send me a cord to load it in amp .
    Its not needed but they claim it makes a diff,,so why not try it ,,its free..They said I was the first consumer that had ever inquired about it..but its not needed it sounds good eitheir way !

    I emailed them last year about getting the RF EcoPunch amp and was told to go through a Mitsubishi Dealer for inquiries! Go figure.

    Glad you got it sorted out! PICTURES please!

    We had a little issue over the phone on which plugs go where. I only installed it a month or so ago but I had already forgot what plugs went where lol. But after I had removed my radio everything came together pretty easily.

    djulie1, do you know where I can go to talk to that Rockford Fogsgate tech? I would like to get that update too.
