Boss MRH7

Overview

Our take on the Boss MRH7

If you want to upgrade the audio system in your boat, but don't have enough space for an "in-dash" receiver, this MRH7 waterproof radio housing from Boss is the ideal solution. It'll house and protect a wide selection of single-DIN (2" tall) marine receivers, and the universal mounting bracket makes it easy to install in the best spot on your boat.

A safe harbor for your marine receiver

If you want to upgrade the audio system in your boat, but don't have enough space for an "in-dash" receiver, this MRH7 waterproof radio housing from Boss is the ideal solution. It'll house and protect a wide selection of single-DIN (2" tall) marine receivers, and the universal mounting bracket makes it easy to install in the best spot on your boat.

This rugged, marine-rated housing is made for life on the water. The UV-stabilized ABS plastic housing won't crack or fade in broiling sunlight, while the poly-carbonate tinted front panel and heavy-duty gasket protect your receiver from salt and spray. Boss even includes external wiring for connecting your power, speakers, and amp, so water can't get in.

Receiver not included.

Great enclosure for boat radio

Written by: DaveT from Michigan on June 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used this enclosure for a new receiver I installed on our old cabin cruiser. Looks great and does a nice job protecting the radio. Nice quality for the price.

Pros: Has good weather seal for front door, housing and all wiring.

Cons: Can be a little tight to fit the radio and all wiring but with a little finesse, it all goes together. Gimbal mount is not quite as solid as I would like but I'm sure it will be just fine.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I chose this to mount a Marine radio into a 1989 Marlin Skier. It doesn't have a location for a stereo, so this is going under the dash vertically, mounted to the left of the drivers left leg. [ James  Jun 14, 2016 ]
