This marine digital media receiver will not play CDs.

Upgrade your boat's audio system

Getting tired of that worn-out sound system in your boat? With this combo deal from Boss Marine, you can upgrade your audio without emptying your wallet. The package includes a marine-rated digital media receiver, a set of rugged 6-1/2" marine speakers, a 41" dipole antenna, and even mounting hardware. If you're looking for a solid, basic system that's tough enough for life on the water, this package offers a lot of value for the dollar.

A rugged receiver built for boating

The Boss MR1308UAB marine digital media receiver is designed for marine use, with a UV-resistant exterior that resists fading and a conformal-coated PC board that resists corrosion. It blends into most boat interiors and offers an impressive list of features.

This digital media receiver (there's no CD player) gives you the freedom to enjoy all your favorite music without lugging a big box of discs down to the boat. With built-in Bluetooth and integrated microphone, you get the safety and convenience of hands-free calling and audio streaming with compatible smartphones and devices. You can also listen to your favorite AM/FM stations, play music stored on a USB drive or SD card, or plug your MP3 player into the 3.5mm aux input. All the openings are protected from salt and spray when not in use, of course.  And you can control all functions (except for Bluetooth) with the included remote.

The Boss MR1308UAB digital media receiver offers plenty of sound-shaping tools, with four preset modes and independent bass and treble control. If you want to connect an external amp, you can use the pair of 2-volt RCA outputs. The dipole AM/FM antenna is made from durable, flexible rubber, so you can install it out of sight.

The fold-down faceplate features a single-line alphanumeric-text display that's easy to read day or night. When you leave your boat at the dock, you can slip the detachable face into the hard plastic carrying case included with your purchase. An optional soft case is sold separately. One last piece of good news — this radio will retain your presets through the winter when the battery's disconnected.

Don't forget the speakers

The Boss MR6W marine speakers pair up perfectly with this receiver. These durable 6-1/2" dual cone speakers provide plenty of low-end punch and excellent clarity. The rugged woofer features a water-resistant design that provides splash protection and durability, not to mention style.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

Boss marine radio and spkr package.

Written By Jay, North Pole, AK. on Monday, May 19, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As a professional installer I found this to be no different than any of the other radios I have done. The Bluetooth works perfect. What I liked most about this is the depth of the radio. It was really shallow. Which allowed me to install it in an area that I would never have gotten a conventional deck. Location possibilities, price, value, and operation make this purchase a win, win.

Pros: Depth, price, features, and coming with a set of speakers makes this a great purchase.

Cons: One could say no cd. However, I didn't want/need a CD player. So for me there are no cons.

Boss Marine Receiver/Speakers Package

Written By Glen, Lafayette, LA on Friday, January 03, 2014

The old saying, "You get what you pay for" definitely came trough on this purchase. If it sounds to good to be true it probably is. I thought the radio had a nice look and feature list, so I thought I'd give it a try. In the end I feel like all I ended up with a decent looking radio. My bluetooth connection often drops, radio power is a bit on the weak side and the radio stations are often fuzzy. I would not recommend buying this radio.

Pros: Decent cosmetics

Cons: Terrible bluetooth connection / Low power / bad radio reception / hard to see display

Easy insulation, Sounds good, It's okay for the price. But i really wa
