Default Rockford Fosgate PXM-2 or 3 vs Fusion MS-RA70 or 70N

I'm looking at marine source units and know there are a lot of choices. I wondered if many have experience with the Rockford Fosgate PXM-2 or the newer PXM-3. Seems like everyone loves the Fusions, but this little unit looks to be a versatile, compact unit with more options than the Fusions. I would be mostly using with satellite radio w a Garmin GXM52 that I would control w my 7612 and then using my phone w Bluetooth for play lists. The unit would be running to a JL M600 amp w 4 wetsounds 808 speakers and two 6 1/2" wetsounds speakers. No sub. Thanks for your input.

I'm pretty sure the RA70 only has one set of outputs, not sure about the Rockford. Something to consider...

I have the PMX-2 connected to RF Amp and wet sound speakers. I have been happy with the performance of the unit. My only beef with it is there is a small foggy spot on the screen I can't get rid of. Boat is always kept covered, but I do end up fishing in the rain sometimes. It's a little hard to see with polarized lenses as well.
