Our take on the Boss MC450 Audio System

by Bob Bihlmayer
Boss

Weather the weather

Do you have a motorcycle or an ATV without a way to hear your favorite tunes, or a boat that needs accompaniment? Do you want the music to keep playing whatever the weather? The MC450 audio system from Boss can satisfy your needs. It's made to be weatherproof: the MC450's components, including the speakers, circuit boards, and amplifier connections, have been specially coated and sealed to protect them from water.

Ready for anything

The MC450 system boasts four 3” speakers in streamlined chromed plastic pods, with adjustable brackets that attach to a handlebar or rail, all powered by a compact 4-channel amp. Connect your media player to the system's 1/8" or RCA input jacks and the system's 1000 watts of power will rock the outdoors. Wherever you go, the MC450 can handle the conditions and pump out the tunes.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Amplifier Inputs: The amp has two inputs; RCA and mini-jack. Both are live simultaneously, so if both are connected, selection must be made by turning one source off.

Note: If both sources connected to the line inputs (RCA and 3.5mm) are turned on, it's likely you'll hear static through the speakers in addition to music, even if one is muted or paused.

Speaker Mounting: The speakers are designed to mount to a round tube using the adjustable stainless steel clamps. Six different spacer sizes are included for use with tubes from 5/8" to 1-1/2" (approximately). Once the speakers are in place, but before the brackets are tightened, you can adjust the mounting angle. After mounting, the speakers can still swivel almost 360°.

Wiring: All the wiring is fixed length and already attached to the speakers and amplifier. Each speaker has a 37" input wire attached and the wires from all four speakers are attached to a single Molex plug. The speaker output wires and the power and ground wires attached to the amplifier are routed together for 18" in a nylon sleeve. Three inches from the sleeve, the speaker wires are attached to a Molex plug (which connects to the plug attached to the speaker wires). The power and ground wires extend 6-1/2' beyond the sleeve with a 10 amp fuse in-line with the power wire.

Volume: The rotary volume control has a 76" cable attached that plugs into the amp and mounts in a round hole in a panel, 0.27" diameter.

Great product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a great product, and very well priced for what you get in the box. The amp is very small and fits nicely into many cramped areas. There is also a remote volume control with this kit, 2 length bolts for the clamps depending on your mounting choice. The wiring is already done, just plug and play once hooked to power and ground. There is plenty of volume in this package as well. Good overall product and value.
Pros:
Ease of installation, you just need to wire into power and ground.
Cons:
All 4 speakers are wired into one plug making the process of hiding the wires a little more difficult.
