Our take on the Boss MC470B

by Bob Bihlmayer
Boss

Take your music anywhere

The MC470B speaker system from Boss allows you to to stream music from your phone or other Bluetooth-equipped device to your motorcycle, ATV, or boat. All the components in this weatherproof system, including the speakers, circuit boards, and amplifier connections, have been specially coated and sealed to protect against damage from water and weather. You can connect wirelessly to your favorite device for hours of listening pleasure.

Get connected

The MC470B includes an in-line volume control. The four streamlined 3" speaker pods include adjustable brackets that mount them to a handlebar or rail. You can plug your media player into the system's minijack input or connect via Bluetooth 2.1.  Either way, the system offers plenty of power to drive its four speakers and rock the outdoors. And the system's Bluetooth reception range extends up to 33 feet, so you can keep the music playing even when you're not right next to the system. Wherever you go, the MC470B will be ready to entertain you.

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 three inputs; RCA, mini-jack, and Bluetooth. All three are inputs are live simultaneously, so if more than one is connected, selection must be made by turning all but one source off.

Note: If more than one source connected to the line inputs (RCA and 3.5mm) is turned on, it's likely you'll hear static through the speakers in addition to music, even if the source 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.
