In September 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Rockville Audio for allegedly falsely advertising the Root Mean Square (RMS) power ratings of its amplifiers, speakers, and subwoofers to make consumers believe the audio products can handle more power and produce higher volumes than they actually can. The complaint claims that the actual RMS ratings of Rockville Audio products is approximately half of what the company advertises and the audio products fail when consumers try to use them at the advertised RMS power capacity.
